William John Pickett/Pickard Bedford married Mary Ann Banks or Mills.

Not sure when or where, but about 1824 - 1833.

The marriage appears in England Select Marriages.:rolleyes:

Daughter, Mary Anne Elizabeth Eleanor Bedford. 1833– Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

No subs for Anc, and can't find it in FS.:eek:

He dies in Sussex, and a son, Edward Henslowe Bedford marries in 1868, Surbiton, Surrey.

Thanks.

Steve.:)

These are from my daughters maternal side, and it's always nice to put a face to name.:)

The facial features are certainly handed down to my daughters Grandfather and well beyond to the other Gt Grampy's. Especially the nose and eyes.:eek::2fun:

Thanks GB & Dave.O0

I doubt very much that there'll be any shipping records.:rolleyes:

The bio on with the portrait gives a year of arriving in 1823, and later 1832, arriving back at Van Diemens Land, and refers to a younger brother Edward Bedford(a bit of a mouthful.:biggrin: ). Not found anything for Edward, except that reference.? He may have been born c1803/1805.

A lot of the information attached to the portrait is incorrect.

Marriage in Cambs not Hobart. Arrived back as a minister so not ordained in Hobart? Does not say and wife. No Mary Bedford on the list of arrivals.

Looking for departure in 1859 and the data set ends at 1853.

Checking departures from Melbourne for England from 1853 to 1860 and can't find the family.

If the return was 1859 then the family (3 children) should be in 1861 census in England.

I can't find the family on FS.

An earlier Eleanor must have died young.


Can't find one for Edward 1805 - 1821. The younger brother of William 1804.

Have not found a death yet for Edward to get age at death.

Edward, younger brother of 1804 William, is a bit of a mystery.

Not this one as child of a surgeon.

Oh. That's just from Sydney to Hobart Town.

This is curious. In 1822 the same vessel reached Hobart Town before Sydney.

ship Caledonia 412 tons
Convict vessel
Master: Robert Carns
Origin: Portsmouth 1822 Jun 19
Destination: Sydney 1822 Nov 24
Date Item Details Source
primary source AO 2/8249p169 [2418]
primary source AO 4/4008 [395]
1822 Nov 6 background Convicts landed at Hobart Town tal:1
1822 Nov 6 arrival Hobart Town tal:1


Perhaps on it's journey back to England it arrived at Hobart Town on 31 Jan 1823.

A bit of a puzzle.
