The ORD family is connected somehow to LINEDALE and REID and NEWELL.

I have this note in my tree that makes no sense after visiting the State Library yesterday.

ORD family per 'Vimeira' arrived 16 Nov 1853

The family is not in the index and not on the film of the passenger list of that vessel.


Qld. Birth 1897/C05206 Linedale Selby Ord - Anthony Theodore - Isabella Jack

Marriage 2022/1856 LINSDALE ANTHONY THEODORE - MUIRREID ISABELLA BUCANAN M - TENTERFIELD

Birth 12505/1858 TINDALE ANTHONY - ANTHONY T - ISABELLA B M - TENTERFIELD

On Isabells'a side we have REID and HOLMES.

Did the family arrive unassisted on the 'Vimeira' or are they just missing from the passenger list?

At least George arrived 1851 - 1859 for sure. George has a brother David as well as a son with that name.

Possibly 1852-1859

Thanks Geoff.

So we still don't know if it's the right vessel.
