I read Charlottes birthplace as Saich = Norfolk is not a county I am terribly familiar with -  the nearest I could find is Setch/Setchey

An update - recently found Thomas Russell as a convict - went to Van Diemans Land 1842 for 10 years for stealing 8 sheep at aged 17yr - he was a butcher!

And just found Isaac and Jane Russell coming to Australia 1866 "Chariot of Fame" which fits with marriage in Axbridge Somerset (don't have confirmation only an index) and child (James William Russell) born in Australia 1867

Obituary
MR. J. H. W. RUSSELL
James Henry Weaver Russell. Mr. Russell was born in Berrow, Somersetshire  (England), in 1830, and was within a month or two of his eighty-fourth year. Determined to go to sea, he travelled to London as a boy of thirteen years, in attendance on the six horses of a stage-carrier. He wanted to join the navy at the time of the Crimean War, but could not obtain his parents consent. He sailed to Sydney in the maiden voyage of the clipper ship Moravian, and later took similar voyages in the Lincolnshire and in the Kent (under Captain Clay- ton). He settled in Lancefield in 1864.

This sounds like the same man? Looks like he was a sailor - he brought the rest of the family out because he told them about Australia after his trips? Now you just have to find them all arriving but you know how he got here
Case solved, lol

WOW - that was so wonderful to read - thanks heaps for the link - and to think I know how to use trove a little - but never found that article - so much rich history and personal information from his early days, thanks again - I am so glad I updated the post about Isaac, to receive your post was a huge bonus.
I am having doubts now about 1866 shipping for Isaac and Jane - there are references to Isaac Russell in 1864 - but of course there could be more than one Isaac Russell in the area
Again, thanks ............... Alison
