Thanks Ellie,

So they don't agree where Thomas was born. That has Thomas L but his middle name was Peter ??

What do the trees have for James White Clark then ?

Arrival for Rachel? I can't find it on PROV.

If his father was also Thomas then an error here.

Death 10635/1896 CLARK THOMAS - WILLIAM - UNKNOWN - MUDGEE * 28 Jul 1896

Which do I believe? They both can't be correct.

Thanks Ellie.

I find it very hard to believe. James born in England in 1849 but no birth reg found.

Thomas arrived in 1852 but not with Rachel or James.

Thomas marries Rachel in Vic. in 1853 four years after James was born?

They should be in 1851 census if arrival for Thomas is correct.

Where is a James Clark born 1849 Wiltshire in 1851 census ?

There is no evidence for the birth in England.

Yes, Rachel may have travelled on a different vessel but no record in PROV.

It's well off a main line.

Thanks Ellie.

Father as William on death reg could be a simple error by informant.

No sign of a birth as Clark or White and no sign of James or Rachel in 1851 census as White or Clark.

Rachel arrived but I can't find it.
