I'd like a look up please for the family in 1851.

Looks as though James is not there. He married in 1859 (James William Wisdom MARSH) in NSW but I've not found him in shipping records yet. Possible and again not a Bounty vessel:

MARSH James 21 William Prowse 1853 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reel 2465, [4/4936]

Deaths Dec 1869
Marsh Jesse 72 E. Ashford 2a 402

Curious as James' marriage record has his parents as Jesse (a Tile maker) and Annabella BARBABY ?

Hello cp,


Ok, James is not there but if he did arrive in 1853 where was he in 1851?

I'm puzzled by the Barbaby bit. That may not be exactly what is written in the register but it's certainly not Coleman.

Spouse Rosana married again in 1869 so there should be a death 1859 - 1869 for James William Wisdom MARSH but I can't find one, not even with WISDOM as family name.

Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

It's ok to be half right when you can find the other half. :D

On another record I read the name as BAUT. I got it half right. It's VAUX.

Hello cp,

It says BAUT but it has to be an error and should be VAUX.

It has Annabella and it's not COLEMAN but BARBABY/ BARLABY ???

I'm still stuck.

I just noticed the middle initial B on the 1851 census:

MARSH, Ann B Wife Married F 44 1807 Hollingbourne Kent
