Hello,

Civil Parish: Bottisham
Hundred: Staine
County: Cambridgeshire
Registration District: Newmarket
SHIP William, 1796 age 45 Sheperd Cambridgeshire
SHIP Haner, 1796 age 45 Cambridgeshire
SHIP John, 1820 age 21 Cambridgeshire
New South Wales, Australia, Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896

I can't find the marriage but William married Flower (Flora) DRIVER.

I don't know if 'Haner' is Flower or a 2nd spouse.

I'd like a look up for William and remains of family in 1851 please.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

Some of the children ended up in Australia.

Only thing left to do is find when William and Flower died.

I've had no luck with their marriage.

Regards,

Dave
