Stevens/Stephens family arrived SA in 1855 ??

Seems to be an error somewhere - father is Stephen or G... ??

868x deaths in SA for Stevens. Can't use g* so have to guess name. Not much help.

There is also this possible baptism

Louisa Stevens baptised Bentley, Hampshire, 31 December 1843 parents Stephen and Louisa. The 1851 Census shows Stephen born c1815 in Hampshire and Louisa born c1813 in Wiltshre. They married in Bentley 25 February 1843. Louisa's maiden name was Macey. No birth registration found for Louisa.

Thanks emeltee.

This is not clear with the name Stevens and Stephens in various records in S Aust.

One has Louisa born 17 Nov 1843 Mile End. And this has her father's name starting with G.

Advertiser and Register (Adelaide, SA) - Mon 31 Aug 1931 p.8
Mrs. Louisa Hancock, whose death occurred recently at Snowtown, was born in England in 1843. She was the only daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. G. Stevens, of Bald Hills, Yankalilla. At the age of 12 years she came to Australia with her parents. ... Aged 87 years.

I can't find a death that fits for Mr G. Stevens in Trove.
