Joseph Greathead & Sarah Dunstall
9 March 1821 Gillingham, Kent
Joseph Greathead & Sarah Dunstall
21 March 1821 Gillingham, Kent

Don't know why two dates. Does not look like Banns - not 14 days.

Sarah Dunstall c. 16 Nov 1800 Chatham, Kent

Age at death for Joseph gives dob 1798. Probably born Kent.

Births Sep 1839
Greathead Emma Jane Sheppey 5 371


Looking for the family in 1841 and possibly 1851 depending when they left.

Family arrived 1841 - 1856 ???

Thanks,

Dave

Joseph Grinstead 61 [b. Thurness. Druggist] different occ from 1841
Sarah Grinstead 8 dau [do] age looks like 16y on the image
Emma Greathead 12 dau [b. Sheerness]
Elisa Greathead 10 dau [do]
Edward Greathead 8 son [do]

Not sure where wife, Sarah is :rolleyes:

Joseph and Sarah are on page 19 and the others are on page 20, possibly why there is an error in the surname for Joseph and dau., Sarah :rolleyes:

Geoff

Edit: I wonder if that is the correct family?

Some nice pictures of Joseph and Sarah also a transribed letter written 1816 by Josephs mother. Joseph trained as a druggist he was the ships doctor on the voyage. Also a diary extract and letter from Joseph and an article from the City Mission Journal.
 
Thanks Julie.

Thanks Geoff.


Unassisted to Victoria
AUG 1853 DIANA B 046 001
GREATHEAD —- MR 57
GREATHEAD -- MRS 54
GREATHEAD —- MR JUNR 29
GREATHEAD J MR 27
GREATHEAD -- MISS 20
GREATHEAD M MISS 17


Junior must be the eldest Joseph not with family in 1841. Mr J must be Joshua. Miss 20 must be Sarah. Miss M 17 must be Emma.

Emma married in 1858 in Victoria.
