Thanks gibbo.

That means a 2nd marriage for Simeon or the names are being swapped.

Marina Elizabeth C = Catherine Marina

Marina S J married 1876 so if they are siblings she is the eldest by far. ???

That would be 'La Hogue'

Several voyages listed for 'La Hogue' with Assisted immigrants but not 1862.

Not on Ozships site.

Not Assisted or Unassisted to Victoria.


It made a voyage to Qld. in 1883.

Curious. Here is a list of vessels that arrived in Sydney on or just before 20 Nov 1862:

56 18 NOV 1862 KATE AUCKLAND SYDNEY
57 18 NOV 1862 MOIRA LEITH SYDNEY
58 19 NOV 1862 ANN AND MARIA ADELAIDE SYDNEY
59 19 NOV 1862 BRILLIANT ROCKHAMPTON SYDNEY
60 19 NOV 1862 LALLA ROUTH OTAGO SYDNEY
61 19 NOV 1862 OCEAN S. S. ISLANDS SYDNEY
62 20 NOV 1862 WONGA WONGA MELBOURNE SYDNEY

and it's not there.

Go back to 1 Nov 1862 and it's still not on the list.

Simeon John Fletcher
christening: 27 April 1834 St. Mary's, Lambeth, Surrey, England
father: Simeon Fletcher
mother: Susanna Fletcher

We have the right death for Simeon.

I can't see a marriage for him or birth of children in NSW before 1876 so it must be Victoria.


Do we have an age at death for Marina in 1882? No burial on BCC site.

JAMES Maria Susannah Jane Death notice 07JAN1882 Death 27 at Ipswich, Queensland Sydney Morning Herald 26JAN1882
JAMES Marina Susannah Jane Death notice 07JAN1882 Death 27 late of Ipswich, Queensland, formerly of Sydney Sydney Morning Herald 09JAN1882


Oh. Abt 1855. So born Victoria or bv or England. ???
