Martha Dunk arrived with father Jesse Snr, mother Charlotte nee Sellens and siblings on the 'Florist' as Bounty Immigrants on 26 Oct 1839. William Loomes arrived with father John, mother Ann nee Speechley and sibs as Assisted Immigrants on the 'David Scott' on 30 Oct 1834. William and Martha were married at Heber Chapel, Cobbitty and both families are in the Camden Pioneer register.

Thanks.

One of my ancestors was Mayor of Camden. There is a carved stone horse trough in a street with his name carved into it. I've found many errors in the Camden Pioneer register.

I searched Bounty Immigrants for Jesse and Marth Dunk and got this:

No Results Found
Sometimes in life, less is more. Try your search again with a little less information. If you get too many results, you can always add more

The only Charlotte I can find is this one:

Charlotte Dunk
Immigration Date 26 Sep 1838
Immigration Place New South Wales
Volume 9
Ship Name 'Palmyra'

I know there are many errors in the Camden Pioneer Register - I am currently reviewing it and making as many corrections as I can find in prep for a new edition.
