They were both remittance passengers. Both were described as single, farm labourers, protestants, able to read and write and origin county Tipperary.

They were not ag labs and also not from Tipperary so they fudged a bit.

Thanks Geoff.

Thanks Rupert.


Lots of things not fitting.

1866 birth but marriage in 1873 ??

Do we have two families - George and Robert both married to a Frances/Fanny ??

Dave
 
Another point to make from that Will

I bequeath to my nephew Norman BICKNELL of the Salvation Army New Zealand

Norman is a son of Charlotte HAMMOND, from her 1st marriage
