Hi Bonnie I also found a John BERGHARD 66 travelling from NZ to Sydney 1877.

In 1830,his father a Tailor appears as a Debtor/prisoner at the Old Bailey which mentions also Alexander, son of the Tailor. if you Google his name it should come up that's what I did.

Although this is getting away from FJB a bit I've found all info helps to fit things into place.

happy Hunting

Thanks Merlin your message.
I have the death certificate;  Frederick was the son of Alexander Burghart and his wife? Maria though his birth certificate shows name as John Frederick born 10 Mar 1858.

and just to add, Alexander was the brother of Frederick John b1811 who came to Australia.

This won't get you any further but my gx3 grandfather, William Burne, a tailor, following his arrival with his family from Jersey into Sydney in January 1851 began an intensive advertising campaign for business.  Under his name he highlighted the fact that he was employed by F Burghart, London, Tailor to the Royal Family.  William left Frederick Burghart's employ in 1839 after the said Frederick was declared bankrupt.  I assume he was the father of the Frederick Burghart for whom you're searching.
