Hi Dave

1851 U.K Census
Civil Parish: Walcot
Registration District: Bath
County: Somerset
Address: 9, Claremont Place

PALMER Catherine I, head mar 1788 age 63 Hinton, Dorset, Landed Proprietor Abroad
PALMER Susan, niece 1831 age 20 New South Wales, British Subject, Annuitant
ROBERTSON Sarah, Visitor Sister widow 1792 age 59 Hinton, Dorset, Annuitant
ROBERTSON Helen, Visitor niece 1835 age 16 British Subject, Malta, Annuitant

So does Occ. mean husband abroad as I can't find him in the U.K.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I took a guess that they had returned by 1851. George was in the Army although so far I can't find his discharge. I would have thought by 1851 he was no longer serving. Yes, I think it means he was abroad.

Re Catherine Irena PEMBERTON I'm not sure if it is Hinton Somerset or Dorset.

Regards,

Dave

He's mentioned in a few N.S.W Government Gazettes.

15 Bridge over the Parramatta river and on the north side
of Parramatta, to the left, stands the Gaol, 15.
15} On the right, the road continues along Penrith-street
towards the Pennant hills, and joining in about 33 miles,
the road leading from Pennant hills to the Government
Wharf. From the junction to that wharf is 2 miles.
There is also another road from Parramatta between
this and the river, which leads to the Female Orphan
School;t o the neat and picturesque cottages of Pemberton

Hello crankypants,

This would be the Susan in the census, daughter of George's brother John:

V1830677 15/1830 PALMER SUSAN S JOHN HARRIET
V183110293 1C/1831 PALMER SUSAN S JOHN HARRIET

Sarah PEMBERTON must have married ROBERTSON.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I thought it best to follow the board layout so I posted a topic on the English board hoping baptism was in Pallot's. I have lots of PALMERS in my tree so I'll start a topic on the Australian board tomorrow.

That is not without errors so I'll be trying to check a few things.

Regards,

Dave
