- parents Benjamin GRIBBLE & Mary

Marriages Mar 1848
HARRIS William Redruth 9 249

One researcher claims Mary married on her birthday - 26 March - I don't know if that is correct.

The HARRIS family is not on board the 'Blonde' with Mary's parents and siblings. Their first child born in Australia was in South Australia on 4 Jul 1849.

Not this family

HARRIS William, wife, child (Wm?) arrived 1848-11-10 on Bussorah Merchant from London v Plymouth [Source:4,6,7,8,30] ?

Bound for South Australia 1836-1851 CD
BUSSORAH MERCHANT from London to Plymouth
1848 November 10 - Adelaide
HARRIS Wm. (Sawyer and ag. labourer), wife (Jane - sempstress?) and child.
