Although ... now I see there are 2 Robert and Sarah BRIDGEMAN families in Burwell in the 1841 around the same age. Which family is yours? (Children: John, Grace and Sarah, at Parsonage House; or with children Charles, William and Sarah Ann)

Have you seen this death notice -
"BRIDGEMAN - At Burwell, on the 24th instant, Sarah, wife of the late Robert Bridgeman, in her 76th year."
Cambridge Independent Press, Saturday, March 31, 1860 pg 8

So Sarah born c1784?

Australia / Re: Any details - George Francis Smith 1842? - 1901

3. I walked Waverley cemetery for ages trying to find a headstone for George Francis that corresponded to the plot number given by the cemetery and I couldn't find it. I would be really keen to see the headstone you found.


Apologies if this has already been posted, but there is a photograph of the headstone here:

It does say that the older headstone (George's) is too weathered to read.

This is the thread you mention where Merlin has the passenger list
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=711575.0

It would probably be an idea to either post a request on that thread, or send Merlin a personal message (click on the message icon under Merlin's name to message).  :)

Hello and welcome also from me.

Do you mean the "Emma Eugenia"? There is this thread which has some resources noted already for the "Emma Eugenia" which arrived in 1858
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=787187.0

A notice of it's arrival doesn't have a passenger list but says only:
"22 married men, 21 married women, 5 single men, 117 single women, 7 boys, 11 girls and 3 infants"

Interesting item here about the passengers conduct during the voyage here too:

I'm not an expert, but I notice in Pigot's that "Plumbers, Painters and Glaziers" are together as one trade.

Will have another look for burials, I recall seeing a couple of Elizabeth's that looked possible, but nothing conclusive.

I think you mean the London Female Guardian Society which ran Stamford House, High Street, Stoke Newington, for fallen women.
