Thanks Geoff.

That helps.

Passenger list - I added the Sarah Ann/Mary Ann ??
ROPER Sarah 19 Sarah Ann/Mary Ann ??

So a sister or half-sister of Emma and Thomas. That means aunt has to be the mother of George Frederick Poole.

Emma and Thomas look like full siblings with mother as Elizabeth Haward.. Mary Ann [Sarah] also a full sibling.. Not sure how the trees get half siblings?

Ah! For the half sibling 'thing'. Trees have her maiden name as Wigg.

Geoff
Thanks Geoff.

About four months after arriving. Should be in NSW index as Moreton Bay. I can't see it.

I don't have any details in my tree showing maiden name is Wigg and a marriage to make her name Haward.

Carrie's aunt - so one generation above Carrie, Thomas, Emma and Sarah/Mary.

Thanks Geoff.

Son James age 23 in 1849.

c. 8 Oct 1826 Theberton, Suffolk - Elizabeth Haward


Perhaps there is no second marriage. What if Elizabeth was born before her parents married. Father = Neriah Wigg and Mother = Elizabeth Haward.

I expected to find some sort of bio for Rev. George Poole but I get one born Ireland who ended up in Canada.

Or an RC priest in Dorchester.

We know 'Aunt Poole' died after about 1869. Elizabeth Alice said to be 18 at the time of the journey.
