John's parents - Henry Owen & Grace Williams

Parish: Liverpool, Lancashire, England

Image very poor, but looks like they lived at Peter's Lane. Labourer.

The Sydney Herald (NSW) - Mon 31 Jan 1842 p.2
SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE
ARRIVALS.
From Liverpool, on Saturday last, having left the 24th October, the ship William Sharples, Captain Jones, with 368 immigrants. Passengers- James Murray, Esq, surgeon, Mrs. Allen, Miss Allen, Master Allen, and Mr. Gannie.

The ship left Liverpool on 24 Oct 1841.

6 June 1841 census? I can't see them so far.

Thanks,

Thanks Geoff.

We probably won't fill many gaps this time around.

No sign of them in 1841 on FS.

Shipping image has William as 5 not 3 which fits better with baptism date.

Big gap between John (Grace) and William (Margaret) so hard to know when Grace died and when Henry married Margaret.

Yeah, very popular name :D

The arrival image does look more like 3 for William, though images are not my forte :eek:

Not much to be found. Should be in 1841 census. ??? They were in Liverpool and the ship departed Liverpool.

Catch you later Geoff.

Thanks Ellie.

Not much hope of finding the right Grace Williams.

Was hoping we would find the marriage to Margaret Evans and 1841 census but no sign.
