According to the info in the shipping record Philip had died by Aug 1854 but I can't find it 1851-1855 in FreeBMD. Ann may or may not have died by 1861. This is a possible:

Hello Ozn,

Thanks. Some of that is correct. Maybe even all. :biggrin:

Marriage 10 Nov 1821 Weston Colville, Cambridge

Maria died 3 Jan 1909 in Queensland.

I viewed the shipping record on film today and it was clear enough to read without me adding transcription errors and it only had mother living in Cam.

This would be it then:

Deaths Sep 1865
Waters Philip Linton 3B 335
looks like Philip still alive in 1861, Dave

Thanks Barbara.

Sometimes it says 'both dead' other times 'living at...' and this time clearly 'mother in Cam.'

For William it had 'Thos. and Anne mother in Cam.' and that is correct:

Before they left:

Deaths Jun 1853
Gilbey Thomas Linton 3b 35[35]

After they left:

Deaths Mar 1855
Gilby Ann Linton 3b 420
