Hi Alan,

Where was Benjamin from? Can you give us some more information please?

Please see

The Havilah, to my knowledge was a coastal steamer.

I have it bringing family from Melbourne to Adelaide in 1854

Cheers Kris  :)

Looks like the HAVILAH must have done more than the coastal trade. It is mentioned in the shipping gazette that the Havilah - steamer from London 2 July arrived in Melbourne 17 Oct 1853 with 11 passengers on board. It is listed on Prov Unassisted Passenger List but alas no Benjamin CARR aboard.

Thanks

Benjamin Carr b1823 was a Mining engineer he went to Canada Nova Scotia around 1850s  were his daughter was born Sarah Jane, he is not on the 1861 census but his wife Jane b1827 and daughter Sarah Jane b 1851 are thay are living with Janes sister Margaret Wilkinson in Newcastle.  Benjamin's brother Joseph Carr went to Australia  and we think he went with him. There Parents were Aaron and Sarah Carr of Walker,
on the 1871 census Sarah Jane is a servant for the John Tweddell  in Walker, no sign of Benjamin or Jane.  on the 1881 census Benjamin's wife Jane is a widower in Gateshead living with her daughter Sarah Jane Gray and Matthew Gray.
There was a  clipping in an Australian news paper saying that a Joseph and Benjamin Carr mining engineers had put in a patient for a Pump,
So Benjamin died before 1881 but where?

That Patent was registered 1858 in Victoria, Australia.

Specifications for registration of patent by Benjamin Carr and Joseph Carr titled - A new and useful improvement in pumps; 1858.
