Hi, I realise this is a very old post but have you been able to trace Agnes further?!


Hi Rob

The painting Flintoff did that is my bff’s ancestor is at Ballarat Art Gallery (Henry Stone and his Durham Ox).

A second portrait of him is in archive at State Library Victoria.  Maybe SLV know more about Flintoff and his works?!

Thanks for reading....  It came to me like a bolt of lightning!  Mrs Anne PHILMORE she was.

Hello team

I am trying to link this woman to my family.

An Anne PHILLMORE (note the double L) married Thomas ODY at Lydiard Tregoze, Wiltshire 16th January 1748.  Both were of the parish.

An Anne ODY was buried at St Mary's LT in 1780, not sure if it's the same Anne.

My PHILMORE's are from LT but I cannot place Anne!  I wonder if she was Mrs Anne PHILMORE?!

Thanks in Advance.

Australia / Pemberton 1849, Crew List.

Hi team

For a friend, I'm looking for the names of the crew on the 'Pemberton' that arrived in Port Phillip in May 1849 from Plymouth.  She was an Earl Grey vessel. 

I've seen lots of lists of the passengers including the Captain, and the ships surgeon but what about the other crew members?!

Thanks in advance,

Probably Liverpool, New South Wales in 1882.  Age is out but there aren't any other's.

Hi team

My convict, John GARSIDE alias Smith was sentenced at Knutsford on 17 October 1836 to 7 years transportation for 'Stealing Soap'.  Looks like a couple of others were found guilty of the same offence at the same time.  He was transported to New South Wales on 14 July 1837 on the 'Asia II'.

The prison hulk register states he was married but also suggests their were no children to the marriage as others on the register do.  I do not know who his wife was, but that is one of my requests.

The register also states, 'Once in gaol for Bastardy'.  I dont know the name of the child or mother.  That is another of my requests.

I also dont know where the 'alias Smith' comes into it?!

John GARSIDE spent the rest of his life in New South Wales.  He married again in 1844.

Thanks in advance.
