Thanks Geoff.

That's just an error - 1839 = 1859 year of arrival in NSW. Age is a bit out.

Birth 17466/1852 ADLAM Arthur Samuel Harriet b. Melbourne, Vic.
Denomination: Church of England Parish: St James Melbourne Fiche: 298

I can't find it in the NSW Records index using Adlam or Adlum or Adlom.

Or using 'arthur darlinghurst melbourne'
