Thanks Geoff.

Not sure about siblings or how Robertson/Robinson fit in.

I can't find a marriage for sister Sarah.

So Catherine's sister Sarah married ROBERTSON and a daughter was born in Malta abt 1835.

I wonder if they also married in Malta. I have no source for the 26 Mar 1805 marrige for Catherine in Malta.

No, I've seen a few requests before for Malta... nothing readily avaliable.. :rolleyes:

I'll have a dig around, there's always new material being added here and there..

Thanks Geoff.

PALMER, GEORGE THOMAS (1784-1854), landholder, was born on 26 April 1784 at Brompton, Kent, England, the son of John Palmer, commissary of New South Wales, and his American wife Susan, nee Stilwell. He joined the army in November 1800 and is reputed to have seen action against Napoleon. On 26 March 1805 he married Catherine Irene Pemberton (1787-1855) at Malta. In 1806 he came to New South Wales with her in the Albion, as a Lieutenant in the 61st Regiment but with permission to settle as a free immigrant.
