Ok, not a problem there

When did your Charlotte go out to Australia and where did she live.

Who did she marry and how many children did she have ?

When did she die etc...?

Maybe l could do some digging.

Cheers

Jamison

Hi Jamison,

Charlotte was transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1835, courtesy of His Majesty's Government.  According to her convict record she was born in approximately 1814 and at the time of her conviction was living in North Gray's Close, Edinburgh.

In 1840, Charlotte married Alexander MacDonald in Westbury, Van Diemen's Land.  I believe that Charlotte and Alexander had the following children:

- Henry (born 1839)
- Charlotte (born 1841)
- David (born 1844)

In 1846 the family moved to Geelong, Victoria, Australia.  Another son (Alexander) was born there.

Charlotte died in 1852 and was buried in Eastern Cemetery, Geelong.

Whereabouts did Janet live in Australia?

Regards

Neil
