Austen/Austin
« on: Wednesday 12 December 18 22:54 GMT (UK) »
G'day Members,
I have just returned to Rootschat after about eight years absence and have found quite a change in the system.
Could someone please assist me.
I am seeking the arrival of a John AUSTIN/AUSTEN and his family aboard the vessel HONDURAS in 1839.
Many thanks from this old timer in avance

Thank you Jamjar,

All we know at the moment is that his father was Edward and that he came to Australia from Kent in 1839 aboard the vessel "Honduras" with his wife and 8 children.

Then I think the death cert should have name of wife and children on it.
