Hi Dave,
Thanks so much, I have collected all the information together regarding Jessie.

I am slightly suspicious about Jessie, her birth must have been an afterthought.

Hi Bruce,

You may be right or there were others who didn't make it to 1861 census.

I don't think we are missing anything except the death of Joseph STEVENS/STEPHENS but there are too many to try and eliminate.

I have another family in my tree in 1861 census - mother 60 and youngest daughter 15 and ages are correct.

NANCARROW Eliza - Blonde 1848 Port Phillip Reel 2144, [4/4816] Page 94

That one from Ely, Fife, Scotland.

Unless there is an error on the page - reading across the row so most of the page would have to be wrong not a single row.

Single female and single male PRATT both from Fife.

This is the line above Eliza:

May Jemima 20 Housemaid Truro Cornwall ChofEngland R&W

Will have to check this out. The family name MAY does exist in Cornwall in 1841.

Only these two in 1841 and neither fit:

MAY Jemima F 6 Cornwall St. Mabyn
MAY Jemima F 10 Cornwall Padstow

Can't find any Jemina Mays in Fife in 1841.

Hi Dave,

I looked at the Disposal list of immigrants for the ship 'Blonde'
The last 2 entries on page 96.
Eliza is listed as sister of Thomas who is a miner and it is interesting to note that they are to be employed by a Thos Stephens (Is he a relative?)

Best regards,
Bruce
 
Hi Bruce,

Thanks for that. I came to the conclusion it was an error and that it had to be a single female that age travelling with some family member - Thomas.

Where did you find the Disposal record? I can only get to page 95. ? 96 is page 1 of the 'Tasman' ?

I don't know about their employer being a relative or not. Will have to investigate that.

The only Thomas Stevens/Stephens I can find arriving before Thomas & Eliza was from Buckinghamshire.

Hi Dave,

I can't understand why you can only get to page 95 for the 'Blonde'

I didn't look at the full list of immigrants so I am not sure whether this list is on the last page.
I took a photocopy of it and it definitely is the 'Blonde' and I'm fairly sure that it is page 96.
I got my copy at the State Library.

Hi Bruce,

Did you get it off film 2144? If so then NSW Records have not digitised all the pages.

Dave
 
Thanks Bruce.
