Looks as though I'll have to wait until tomorrow to get on to NSW BMD index to check death for Richard. Might be 1878 at Orange.

That's interesting. Have I done this before? :D I have KITTO in my tree.
 
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.

They never are :biggrin:

You have them on a passenger list or did just Richard arrive here?

Dunno yet. :biggrin: Possibly only Richard.

Hi Dave

There is a Thomas Henry b. 1840 Truro which covers Perranzabuloe, there is one possible for Richard 1839 but that may be a bit late.

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.
