I presume John and Sarah are siblings although I can't find a baptism on FS to prove it. John may or may not be Robert's father. I also can't find the 1852 marriage on FS.

Robert has an uncle William in NSW but I don't know what side of the family he is from. I can't find a William THURSTON or RUMSBY in shipping records. Could be a sibling of Annie - maiden name unknown.

The only William THURSTON I can find arrived in Victoria in 1850. He was 21, a wheelwright from Kent.

I can't find any trees on either family.
