The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser (NSW : 1838 - 1841)
Wednesday 7 November 1838

Shipping Intelligence. ARRIVALS. On Monday night, the Maitland, from London with emigrants. Typhus fever is raging amongst them, she -has therefore gone into quarantine.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser (NSW : 1803 - 1842)
Thursday 8 November 1838

THE MAITLAND.- This emigrant ship,

which came in on Monday evening, has been more unfortunate with regard to sickness than any emigrant ship before her. Shortly after the vessel left the land typhus and scarlet fever broke out, and spread rapidly. About forty of the emi- grants died on the voyage, and a great many are laid up at the present moment. On the arrival of the vessel on Monday night she came to an anchor in Watson's, Bay, where she remained until the next
day, when she was visited by the Medi- cal Board, and the result being unfa-vourable, she was immediately ordered into quarantine. All hands have been more or less afflicted with one or other of these dreadful diseases.

Almost. :2fun:

Just want to try and check if it is BALTHAM or BATHAM. And check if the parents of both James and Elizabeth as per shipping record do seem to fit.

Thanks. So it's either Edward or Edmund.

I can't find either marriage.

Curious it seems to say his father is William MOON.

Thanks. That's the expanded version of the extracted IGI marriage one but with no extra info.

Possibly William married twice.

So she was single when she had James :confused:

Wonder how come he has Moore as a second name on his baptism in 1814 when his mother didnt marry Moore until 1833 :confused: Or i wonder if his father's surname was Moore and his mother actually married a Moon :confused:

Can i ask now? :confused:............. case closed yet? :2fun::2fun:

Case closed in 30 seconds. :2fun:

Looks like there is some confusion in the records as to the spelling of William's name so one marriage with MOORE and one with MOON.
