Thanks gibbo. ;) Don't think I snore that loudly. :2fun: Actually, I don't.

I didn't have the burial records.

The 'Bound for SA' CD lists that one on 'Bussorah Merchant' with spouse Jane so that's why I ruled that one out. Perhaps we had better see if more births in SA can be found for William & Jane. And a search for a death for Jane. If neither can be found then possible 'Jane' is an error.

There are several trees. None list the arrival. Only one lists all 12 children I have. Several only list one of the children because that's the line they are following.

Yes, I did that because I expected them to be on that vessel.

We need some SA and Vic. look ups.

HARRIS William arrived in SA 1849-03-21 aboard Pakenham from Liverpool via Plymouth [Source:6,20]

Tree HERE

So that's not the William and Jane who arrived with child (Wm.?) in 1848.

I've been trying to find a baptism in England for one about 1847 1848 with parents William & Jane. Lots if you go back to 1845.
