Emma c. 25 Dec 1821 St. Mary Whitechapel, Stepney, London
William Pritchard & Elizabeth
Batch: C006298

PRITCHARD Emma 25 'Equestrian' 1848 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reel 2135, [4/4786] Page 81

NSW Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896
Emma Pritchard
Age: 25
Arrival Date: 16 Jul 1848
Vessel Name: Equestrian
Origin Location: Spitalfield, Middlesex
[Image says Middlesex, housemaid. She's with Mary Elizabeth Pritchard 18y, nursemaid]

There is no second shipping reel for this one so no parents. Don't know yet if Emma and Mary are sisters or not.

Emma is the one in my tree so looking for her in 1841.

Thanks,

Dave

Because Mary is younger it was probably her to be found first if with parents..

1841
County: Middlesex
RD: Bethnal Green
Piece: 694; Book: 4; Folio: 41; Page: 11

William Pritchard 50 [Taylor [sic]]
Elizabeth Pritchard 40
William Pritchard 20 [Carver]
Mary Pritchard 10
[All BiC]

Baps:
William John Pritchard
b. 11 Oct 1818
Bap. 1 Nov 1818
Baptism Place: St. Giles Cripplegate
Parents = William Pritchard & Elizabeth
[Image has William's occ as Fine something possibly dresser or weaver. Abode = Grub St]

Same applies to Emma b. 29 Nov bap. 25 Dec 1821 Father's occ as above. Abode = Plummers Row.

Mary Elizabeth Pritchard
b. 7 Jan [from image]
Bap. 20 Feb 1831
Parents = William Pritchard & Elizabeth Pritchard
St Giles without Cripplegate
[Occ = Cloth weaver. Abode = possibly Bell St]

A few possibles for Emma in 1841, still can't definitely link Emma, apart from William Jr bap. :rolleyes:

Can't see a marriage or a death in NSW or Qld. for Mary.

Most are Mary A.

Windows notification works some of the time. It checks when you restart but not on a regular basis while running.

James Ward & Emma Pritchard

If CofE then possibly Vol 37.

If Presbyterian possibly Vol 80.

Baptism [BBP] records in Qld. all have 1854 even if the Birth was as early as 1851.

1854/BBP892 Ward James William - James - Emma -
