PAGE William b: c1815 BDF ENG d: 13.8.1865
Echunga SA art: 1858 UTOPIA occ: Labourer
res: Echunga, Norwood tel: C/E
m: Mary b: c1815 BDF ENG ch: Jane (c1841-), Geo
Richd (c1843-1904), John (c1846-), Wm (c1849-1925),
Chas (c1851-1897)

This is the only Jane Page I could find on BISA with parents William & Mary. [Couldn't see a John & Mary]

Trees online have fathers name [John]. Looking at the lack [none] of information re her marriage details all have used John taken from her death.

William's death on Trove has been tagged Page/Burgess

Arrived per 'Utopia' 1858.

The lists only go to 1854. :rolleyes:

The Utopia, 937 tons, Captain H. E. Keen, chartered
by Her Majesty's Emigration Commissioners, sailed
from Liverpool on the 28th March, for Adelaide, South
Australia, in charge of Surgeon-Superintendent George
Graham, M.D., with 40 married couples, 99 single men,
67 single women, and 78 children, making a total of 312
souls, equal to 297 statute adults.

Over 100 articles re 'Utopia' but can't find any names.

So, family should be in 1851 census. I can't see a George Richard but there are several births for a George. All the birth reg seem to be RD Bedford.

Marriages Sep Qtr 1841
PAGE William Bedford 6 81
BURGESS Mary Bedford 6 81

Thanks Geoff.

South Australian Register (Adelaide, SA : 1839 - 1900) - Saturday 19 August 1865 p.3
ECHUNGA.
On the 12th instant an inquest was held at the
residence of Mr. Thomas Hamlyn, near the
Echunga Garden, on the body of William Page,
who was found dead in the gardens, before Mr.
May, Coroner, and a respectable Jury.
...
Mary Page deposed— Deceased is my hus
band, aged 51 years. He left after breakfast in
good health, which he took as usual. ...

The Jury retired, and after a brief consultation re
turned a verdict that the deceased died of apoplexy,
caused by intemperance.
