Yes, thanks gibbo. Not totally correct that tree.

I can't find a birth reg that fits born 1838 Perranzabuloe. Not sure what RD but not the RDs that do show up 1837-1839.

I can't see Richard in Cornwall in 1861 so it looks like a 1851-1861 arrival. No sign of him assisted to NSW.

Thanks Geoff.

I still can't find the other Kitto in my tree. I think it's in a note attached to one of the 4997 individuals but I don't know which one. :2fun:

I'll find it one day.

I've searched Qld. and NSW assisted and Victoria and I can't find Richard in shipping records. Did find a few ships captains. Don't know what occupation he had in NSW. He died in Orange so it could have been miner.
