My wife Lorraine (nee Shaw) is the GG Grand daughter of  Thomas Messenger and Amy Mills. We would be very interested to see any photos.

Thomas Messenger + Amy Mills - Alice Messenger + William Thomas Shaw - William Norman Shaw + Gertrude Stanton - Ronald Norman Shaw + Elizabeth Isabel Linda Griffin - Lorraine

We have placed an extensive family tree on Wikitree and I am willing to post photos and info

Hi as I've said above I'm the GGG Grand daughter of Thomas Messenger and Amy Mills.

Thomas Messenger + Amy Mills = John Messenger + Mary Ann Keal = Nellie Clara Messenger + Frederick Claude Stephens = Vernon Claude Stephens + Elizabeth Jean Scott Clark = Craig Stephens + Linda Howlett = Me (Shaye Stephens)

I would love to see any information that you have. Is there anywhere I can show my photos. Unfortunately all my relations on the Messenger side have died there are many photos unidentified so I'm hoping there are some people that can help me

Hi Nudge!
I am a G G G Grandaughter of Thomas, from George who travelled to Western Australia.  We have a Messenger loop going with a lot of descendants from the Messenger family.  AND a lot of photos of the family.  Inbox me of your email and we will compare notes.  A lot of Messengers in South Australia and a lot of interest in this line!
All the best from Kath

Hi all,

Im trying to pick up where I left off long time ago. If anyone else had anything they could share it would be much appreciated. Before I stopped researching I was trying to look for more information on my great great grandfather John Messenger, son of Thomas Messenger and Amy Mills. Any suggestions on where to start? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

If the Thomas MESSENGER we are seeking is this man
Thomas Messenger
BIRTH   1831
DEATH   22 Feb 1910 (aged 7879)
BURIAL   Yankalilla Public Cemetery, Yankalilla, District Council of Yankalilla, South Australia,

then his death notice on TROVE says he was a colonist of 62 years which gives an arrival date of 1848 so perhaps he's the one living at Hulcote in 1841 with parents Richard and Martha
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/208013710
MESSENGER.On the 23nd February, at Alberton, suddenly, of heart failure, Thomas Messenger, aged 79 years, leaving a widow, 5 sons, 5 daughters, 51 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren.
Colonist of 62 years. Late of Woodville and Two Wells
.

He's buried at Yanakilla with Amy MESSENGER 1834-1913 and Matilda Amelia Messenger Stock 18621891 so I assume it's the correct man.

edit to add:  Amy was still alive when he died so the time spent in the colony is quite likely to be correct.
