Yes thanks, Barbara.

There is a bit on NSW Archives. Just index entries and no images.

LAMB Richard Asia 1837 41/2590 Ticket of Leave [4/4157; Reel 942] District: Goulburn; Tried: Warwick assizes

LAMB Richard Asia 1837 44/1812 11 Dec 1844 Certificate of Freedom [4/4395; Reel 1018] TL 41/2590

Not sure of his father's name. Richard's son called Eli for short.

Eliezar/Eliezer - The head servant of Abraham (Gen 15:2).


Not much fun searching TROVE for 'lamb'

Married well after CofF so no Application to Marry.

Geoff found the Muster.

1841 census ? - might mention he was assigned to James Chisholm.

Yes. There is a small census of land holders or something.

I'll check what it's called. It's on A...

The 1901 Census for the state of New South Wales, Australia is contained in this database. Taken on the 31 of March, 1901 and organized alphabetically by district, the census records the surnames of each head of household and the number of people in the household. Gender is indicated by the column in which the number of householders is written along with columns indicating whether persons of either Chinese or Aboriginal ethnicity were found in the household.

Goulburn or Mummel(l) probably.

Only other things I can think of are 1901 census and 1903 Electoral roll.
There are Lamb's in Narrabri [1903] but wrong area.. Frederick, Richard and William.

Geoff

EDIT: 82x Lamb listed in 1903, none for Mummel/Goulburn.. a few in Wagga Wagga. It doesn't look as though Goulburn and Mummel are covered in the listing I have.
