Thanks gibbo.

That must be Margaret.

I have the harder job of looking for a NZ arrival. :2fun: No name index.
 
As well as James Micheal brother John b. 1839 and sister Mary Ann b. 1853 arrived and lived in Victoria.

Name could be KILFEDDER.

There are several trees and no one has found any of them yet.
 
These are the only Kilfeder's i can find in the vic archives

KILFEDER ALICE 23 JAN 1871 ship ESSEX B 300 006
KILFEDER REBECCA 20 JAN 1871 ship ESSEX B 300 006
 
Cant find him Dave :rolleyes: I've looked everywhere i can think of and nothing:confused: Oh his in the newspapers but nothing to give a hint of how or when he got here :2fun::2fun:
