Hi Ruth

I have family who were in Blaina Aberystruth in 1861 and have not been able to find them either.  Someone on the Monmouthshire board (or maybe the Yahoo Monmouthshire group- which you may find useful) told me that large lots of 1861 in that area have been lost  >:(

Don't know if it is relevant but from newspaper shipping lists

a Mr WILKINSON travelled from Adelaide to Mauritius aboard the SARAH departing 13 Feb 1868. There is no further information.

a Miss WILKINSON travelled from Adelaide to Mauritius "In the Saloon" aboard the YARRA departing 7 Oct 1887. There is no further information.

Cheers Kris  :)

Hi Ruth,

nothing much to report from the passenger lists I am afraid.

I could find no sign of Margaret arriving in SA, nor of any of them leaving SA

Passenger List from the ART UNION arriving 22 Aug 1864

WILKINSON Cathe, single  aged 19 a servant from Monmouth

Passenger List OCEAN CHIEF arriving 7 Apr 1864

WILKINSON Cathe single aged 21 a servant from Monmouth
WILKINSON Eliz single aged 18 a servant from Monmouth

Cheers Kris  :)
Hi Ruth,

seems to be quite a bit of supposition in this

Catherine was born June qtr 1842, chr. 18 Sept., 1842, Trevethin, Monmouth, England. dau. of John Wilkinson and Margaret Jones. 
 Have found a Catherine Wilkinson (age 19) on ship "Art Union" from Plymouth, Devon, arriv. S.A. on 22 August, 1864, Adelaide.
Her younger sister Margaret came out in 1863 age 16, and married in Adelaide age 17 in Dec. 1864.  I thought Catherine could have come out for her sister's wedding.   

Do you have this Art Union Entry? Catherine Wilkinson is not an unusual name. Are you sure Catherine was ever in Adelaide. I note by this arrival you mention, this Catherine is aged 19. Your Catherine would be 22. You make comments such as "a Catherine Wilkinson"  "I thought Catherine could have come out for her sister's wedding."  Do you have Margaret's marriage cert? Was Catherine a witness or do you have any records of her ever being in Adelaide?

Cheers Kris  :)
