Augusta Jessie is the dau. who died in 1841...

I'm getting a bit lost now.. :rolleyes:
Augusta Jessie is the name of the vessel. We both need a break. :2fun:

I think I have solved the problem but I will have look this one up at the library:

V1851373 37B/1851 ROOTS SIVYER - ROOTS ANN - CR= CofE Cobbitty, Narellan

Sivyer is a brother of James b. 1804 - parents Sivyer ROOTES and Mary PLAYFORD as per Sivyer's arrival on 'Palmyra' in 1838.

Burial V18521127 38B/1852 ROOTES SIVYER AGE 28

Ann married her cousin and he died so she was a widow and name didn't change.

Oh. Thanks Geoff.

The record does not say born vessel but that has to be a son born on the 'Augusta Jessie'. The record says 3 children but does not name them. I'd say that info was as at departure.

I'll look that one up too and see if an age is recorded.

I think we are still missing one child of James and Anna.

1463/1860 PLAYFORD RICHARD - ROOTES LYDIA - CAMDEN
1020/1862 PLAYFORD WILLIAM - ROOTES MARY - GLEBE
