Australia / Re: Captain Edward Isaac DOWSETT & Grace RUTT
« on: Sunday 03 March 13 08:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
I too am related to William Spencer dowsett via my Grandmother who was Doreen Dowsett. She was the daughter of William Herbert Spencer. Although Nana would never speak of her family- who knows what family secrets where there, as William contested his wife's will and they didn't live together. Some family mysteries for sure.
I would love to see photo's of William Spencer. I think i have one of William Herbert but Nana never wrote on the back of photographs.
I can be contacted also via email:

as far as i know
"BENNETT Thomas (m 25 yrs), Eliza(beth) (f 25 yrs) (nee SOUTHALL), and a son (6 months) arrived 06-12-1837 on Navarino from London this would have been Charles as William was born here.
He lists on the immigration records as Harbone, W. Birmingham This was listed on the immigration records as his last address in England 1836.
I haven't found any other information howver i think he was a station master
