From Plymouth March 1865 'Lobelia' arrived Brisbane 2nd July 1865
JACK William 29
JACK Sarah 26
Isabella 2
Janet 1

There is no death reported of a male Jack child on board.

The Brisbane Courier (Qld.) - Tue 18 Jul 1865 p.2
The Lobelia arrived at the anchorage, Brisbane Roads, on the 3rd July, and was visited next day by Dr. Purdie the Health Officer, from whom we learn the following particulars :-
We have been favored with the following list of the names of the persons who died during the passage of the above-named ship, by the same gentleman -Miles Spelman, aged 20, of continued fever, on March 31 ; John Lax, infant, of bronchitis, on April 2 ; Henry Lambert, aged 23, of ship fever, on April 7 ; Sarah Jack, aged 26, of ship fever, on April 12 ; ...
The Lobelia was towed down to Dunwich, the quarantine station, on Saturday, the 8th instant, by the Kate, s., and there she still lies. The passengers have been landed, and as soon as the health reports justify such a step, they will be released from quarantine. The number of passengers was 334. ...
Thanks Val.

I will search a bit more re that vessel. It may have departed after 1 March.

Seems James only has a middle name of Graham on his death reg. Not included on his birth or service record or his marriage.

UK, Military Campaign Medal and Award Rolls, 1793-1949
NAME: James Jack
SERVICE DATE: 1854-1855
REGIMENT OR UNIT NAME: 42nd Royal Highlanders
February 24.-Lobelia, from Gravesend, for Moreton Bay.

The image of the shipping record has no summary - no births or deaths recorded on those pages.

First son named Alexander so grandfather probably Alexander but can't choose between these and there may be others not in the index.

Alexander b. 17 Jun 1794 c. 22 Jun 1794 Abbey (Paisley), Renfrewshire
residence: Eaglesham, Renfrewshire
Alexander JACK & Rebeka KILLOCH

Alexander b. 16 Apr 1795 c. 19 April 1795 Abbey (Paisley), Renfrewshire

No Lymburn there.

Five sons and no daughters.
What a surprise.

Edwin Jack
Death date:28/08/1865
Mother's name: Sarah Blackley
Father/parent's name: William Jack
Registration details: 1865/B/2489

Died about two months after arrival.

Curious naming pattern.

Isabella = name of mother's and father's mother
Janet = not Mary or Margaret going one generation further back on father's or mother's side and not Sarah after Mother.
Edwin = not father's father Alexander or mother's father John and not William after Father.
