That possible baptism does not seem to agree with birth reg in index.

I'd like a look up please for the family in 1841, 1851 and 1861.

Thanks Geoff.

There may not be a birth reg that fits baptism record if birth date is 28 Aug 1844.

I'm off for about 5 hours so catch you later.
This may be the family in 1861..

This is all I could retrieve from the General Caulfield, similar to you...

CRANE Susanna 19 General Caulfield 3 Sep 1864 IMM/112 217 Z1957

Susanna Crane
Age: 19
Born abt 1845
Ship Name: General Caulfield
Port of Departure: Southampton, England
Port of Arrival: Brisbane
Arrival Date: 3 Sep 1864

Can't even pin down her birth place from that.

If this is the one, it's interesting that there is only about 4 months from her arrival to the marriage :rolleyes:

Thanks Geoff.

Nothing on the Qld. shipping records to indicate place of origin.

I don't have enough info yet on possible siblings to be sure that is the family in 1861.

I'll search for some trees to lead us astray. :biggrin:
Looks like Robert Harrold was b. Suffolk abt. 1835..

This may be him, but there's no image yet:
Robert Harold
Birth Year: abt 1838
Ship Name: Warren Hastings
Port of Arrival: Brisbane
Arrival Date: 26 Apr 1863

Thanks Geoff: :)

A tree says Thrandeston for 1841 and 1851 and Palgrave for Robert for 1861.
The 1861 census I found was Thrandeston, may be you were looking at the civil parish..

Edit: For the birth..

Thanks Geoff. :)

I can't find a baptism for Robert or the marriage of his parents. I have not seen any of the census yet for HARROLD family.

I took the census locations for Robert junior off a tree. Yes, the tree could be wrong.

Yes, the same tree has Susanna born Australia - I have since dismissed that as utterly foolish :biggrin:

I'd say we have the right Susanna and the right arrival. Also I'd say that's the correct arrival for Robert junior.

That's all I can say for sure just now.

Yeah, makes sense he went out first, she followed 1864, they married Jan 1865. Just a case of qualifying the loose ends..
Surname perhaps wrongly transcribed...
