How did Catherine HAWLEY get to Australia?
« on: Thursday 21 August 14 09:57 BST (UK) »
Catherine HAWLEY was born in Lancashire, England in 1851.

She married John CORBETT in Victoria, Australia in 1870.

How did she get to Australia?

Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers, Ted

There is a Miss Catherine Hawley travelling with her family to Australia in 1862 on the ship "Thames".

The family look to be Richard Hawley and his wife
Children are Edward, Richard, Henry, Francis and Catherine.

Yes Rosie17, John HAWLEY and Isabella CALDERWOOD are her parents.

On the 1851 UK census John HAWLEY is a Confectioner.

A Mr. J. HAWLEY, Confectioner of Bathurst was summoned due to possessing a stole bank note.

I wonder if it is my John HAWLEY?

It could be as they don't seem to be around in other census forms
I came across 2 entries one in 1852 Isabella Hawley aged 35 but that would give a wrong birth date and Isabella Hawley aged 13,Catherine Hawley 2 all coming from Liverpool arriving Victoria 1852 but says she was a widow some other writing but hard to make out ..

The next one was Isabella Hawley aged 50 Matron and Catherine Hawley aged 14 leaving Liverpool and arriving Melbourne 28/11/1864
