So you dont have a arrival for John 1864?

The 1824 John born Glous was married when he arrived 1858.

May I ask how you know he was born Gloucestershire?

The Marriage to Hannah Hoult was 1876 not 1866 as you noted.

So he may have been Widowed, do you have the Marriage Cert?

Aaah, Death Reg;
WESTBURY  ANNE 7042/1873*** AGE 55 YEARS DIED TENTERFIELD

So it looks to me that the 1858 arrival I posted is him with 1st Wife.
She dies 1873 and he remarried 1876.

I also noticed John/Hannah name a Daug Eliza Cassandra Westbury which cant be a coincidence as John/Ann had a Daug Cassandra who died.

Also on the Ship 1858 with John/Ann/Cassandra were;
Kilminster?
Thomas 15
Frances 13
Both born Highworth, Wiltshire
Mother on Board, Father dead, Parents Thomas/Ann

So Ann page must have married Thomas Kilminster and then John Westbury (although I cant find a Marriage yet)
The surname is hard to read though.

1st Marriage of FreeBMD;
June 1841
Kilminster    Thomas Swindon &c   8 533
Mary Ann PAGE on same page
Ok Kilminster seems correct

Frances Kilminster
Gender:   Female
Baptism Date:   3 Aug 1845
Baptism Place:   Highworth, Wiltshire, England
Father:   Thomas Kilminster
Mother:   Ann Kilminster

1851 Census

Thomas Kilmister, 59, Head, Mar, Master Plasterer, born Highworth
Ann Kilmister, 33, Wife, Mar, born Fyfield, Gloucestershire*****
Thomas Kilmister, 8, Son, born Highworth

I dont seem to be able to find Eastleach Turville records on line.

A Tree has Thomas Westburys Wife as Ann Tuffly.

How sad looks like Johns Mother died 2 years after they left for OZ.

WESTBURY, ANN, age   58
GRO Reference: 1860  J Quarter in NORTHLEACH  Volume 06A  Page 223

Sorry forgot to welcome you too Rootschat GWestbury :)

Adding some more to the mix...
There is a James Westbury b 8 March 1872 parents John and Hannah who (Trovenla) was best man at his brother Richard's wedding 19/7/1901 ref Tenterfield newspaper
And also gave away the bride, his sister Eliza 30/5/1911 at her wedding.
This same James Westbury has a christening date St Mary's Church Tenterfield 17/7/1906 which ? could be a transcription error? Did he change churches?

Hi Trish,
Thank you for the welcome.  Well, you have found a lot of information.  All my information came to me after my father, Harold Westbury died in 2005, he was born 1916 his parents were John Westbury and Annie Elizabeth Westbury(nee Collins). I was given a Tenterfield Star newspaper clipping of Richard Westbury recounting his family's life as pioneers in Leech's Gully near Tenterfield, he was apparently younger brother of John Westbury was born 1876 in Tenterfield NSW and died 21 March 1936 aged 60.  You asked about changes in church? It would seem that after John Westbury's death in 1894, Hannah Westbury made a gift one guinea on 31st July 1914 to assist building Catholic Convent? I found this by accident in another article in Tenterfield Star newspaper.  So she may have changed or reverted back to the Roman Catholic religion? However my grandfather, John Westbury and my Father, Harold Westbury were both Church of England. My father was the organist at St Thomas Church of England church Enfield in Sydney. I am still trying to clarify where they all fit in?  How do you have these details and how does the Westbury family interest you?
Cheers Grahame
