Thank you so much for all this information. As always you post the full picture.
I did have some of it but it was not making very much sense to me.
The mis-transcription as "Trimer" on the Macedon, I did see that one. However I checked the Index to Official Assisted Passengers - sailed on the Macedon, and it was transcribed as "Turner".
I also looked at the microfiche for the "Macedon", it was difficult to read. However looking at the SA BMD Registrations of the births of James & Maria TANNER, I have to accept that it is indeed "TANNER".
Yesterday a light switched on in my brain, and I thought I would do a search for a marriage for Maria TANNER, and I found the one in 1861 to James CRABBE. I followed to see if there were any children and found Maria has reverted to her maiden name "HUNT".
The last child born to James Crabbe and Maria Hunt/Tanner was 1873.
I presume Maria's first husband James TANNER was deceased when she married James Crabbe in 1861. I don't seem to be able to find his death, then I would be happy to find Maria's too.
If I'm on the right track this has given me a whole other family to follow.
Thanks once again.
