Another set of exercises for my left shoulder rotator cuff to try and keep me off the list for surgery.

When I go back to see the surgeon next month he will ask "can you live with it?" !

The baptism record has Thomas as a bricklayer.

If that tree is correct the Dickins family arrived 1849.

I can't find the family in 1841 census.

DICKINS or DICKENS

No birth reg found for Mary Priscilla. Age at death points to 1844 so age in shipping record is out.

No birth reg found for Rose Elizabeth to confirm year of birth.

I still can't find the family in 1841.
