Hi Dave
still working on it, but it looks as if Julias father Robert re married before 1871 and started a new family with Diana. Sarah's family disappear, so did they all emigrate before 1871

Hello dave,

Thanks for looking. I have no proof yet that the 1909 death in Brisbane (a 'B' in the reg) is Julia's father. Qld. certificates are very expensive and this is not one of my direct lines.

I can't find any sign in Queensland of Julia's siblings William and Hanna.

I will look now to see if I can find a death for Dinah.

It's possible Julia arrived solo.


Hello Steve,

Thanks for looking. I'm not sure if that is the death of Julia's father or not. It's possible Julia arrived solo and that the one arriving in 1883 is her.

DIXON Julia 27 Duke of Buckingham 11 Aug 1883 IMM/118 122 Z1960 M1699

Julia seems to be the only DIXON on that vessel.

I will view that film next month when I next go to the state Library.

This is why I think Julias father remarried. Sarah was 10 years older than Robert, Dianah is 4 years younger. Roger was a miller born Hungerford, the same as in 1861 when married to Sarah. Roger and Dianah were still together in 1901

Hello dave,

Thanks. I'd say you are correct.

I can see no sign of Julia's siblings in Queensland so it's possible Julia arrived solo.

I should know more sometime next month. I hope the film has at least place of birth.
