Hello Maddie,

Thanks for looking.

It's a name that I'm sure would be easily mistranscribed.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

It looks like the family. Some things fit and some don't. :)

Avenger must be the name of the vessel. :D

Births Mar 1851
Sherrell William Henry Plympton St My 9 493

I believe Jane was born in 1825 Saint Neot, Cornwall and William in 1820 place not given. I would say there is some doubt about that 1820 date.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

This is very curious. A birth in NSW:

# 3812/1857 SHERRELL JOHN S WILLIAM JANE ST GEORGE

So they left William Henry behind with his grandparents. :confused:

Deaths in NSW for William & Jane:

# 413/1907 SHERRELL WILLIAM - WILLIAM - ASHFIELD
# 8347/1901 SHERRELL JANE - JOHN JANE ASHFIELD

What we need now is the marriage for William senior.

Regards,

Dave
