Can't seem to find Esther in 1841 or 1851 but can't find a death/burial either even though it looks highly likely that she has died.

Thanks Emeltee.

The note in my tree had "no notice found in Trove" from last time around. This time around working on 'H' I had another look in Trove and found the death notice with details of his arrival.

The Hammond family connected to my Hamiltons and not an easy family to trace.

I don't think that is your John Orpwood in 1841.
There is a baptism for a Caroline Orpwood in 1798 Bray, Berkshire, daughter of John Orpwood and Mary (Purkis).
I think that is the family in 1841.
