William Henry Harry arrived Port Adelaide Apr 1864 on "Ocean Chief".
« on: Saturday 17 February 18 07:05 GMT (UK) »
I am researching William Henry Harry and family who arrived Port Adelaide 7 April 1864 on " Ocean Chief".
Whh 1831-1908 had married April 1853 St Austell Cornwall , Mary Hancock Minear 1834-1911.
I think they lived Saddleworth South Australia and may be buried Payneham.
They had at least 11 children. 3 came with them when they migrated.

Mary may be the base daughter of Jane (Guy) Minear.
I mam wondering if the middle name Hancock suggests a further connection.
I am hoping someone might have knowledge of this family.

My Harry family does appear to have Hancock connections.

Any snippet of information greatly appreciated.

Thank you Ros Much appreciated.
I will add to my records.

I am hoping someone has knowledge of this family.
Henry died 1908.
I have bpt . , marriage record also passenger list indicating three children came  with them on "Ocean Chief".

The bpt record for Mary Hancock Minear includes the word "victualler" suggesting a connection to the hotel industry.
This might be relevant as I have a Henry Harry marrying Elizabeth/Betsey Hancock. Henry was inkeeper at Seven Stars Inn St Austell. I cannot find an obvious connection.
