The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 10 Jun 1933 p.9
ST. JOHN'S, CAMDEN.
Anniversary of Consecration.
(BY ERIC RAMSDEN.)
...
Mrs. Samuel Wheeler, the oldest parishioner, preserves an interesting link with the past. Her husband came to Australia with his father, the late Jonathan Wheeler from Gloucester, in 1838. The Wheelers were sawyers. They were brought out by the Macarthur family for the purpose of preparing the timber for St. John's Church. The finest of the ironbark trees in the district were placed at their disposal. How splendidly the Wheelers, father and son used their material, can be seen in the roof of the church to-day nearly a century later. The woodwork throughout St. John's has been handled with exquisite craftsmanship. Samuel Wheeler died in 1909, aged 94. His widow, though now in her 90th year, still walks up the hill to service.

Born at sea in 1844, her birthplace is officially regarded as New South Wales, Australia, for the sailing ship conveying her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Richards and family from England to Australia, was off the N.S.W. coast, and only one or two days of approaching Port Jackson.
No Assisted arrival to NSW in 1844 for a Richard/Richards family ??


Not totally correct.
... It was that year, 1837, he arrived in Australia at the age of 22 years ...
It was 1838 and Samuel is listed on shipping record as 17.

The shipping record seems to indicate Nathaniel was alive in 1838 and a farm labourer at Bisley.
