John Austin was my GG Grandfather.  He shepherded a mob of sheep on the Honduras in 1839 for the Australian Agricultural Company.  On arrival in Sydney the family went to Maitland.  Then the boys went west while the girls stayed in Maitland.  The youngest son was my G Grandfather and he is resting in Wellington Cemetery with his wife Jean Ferguson.  email                 debbieandmartin@optusnet.com.au  if you would like his death certificate (No mention of wifes name) and passenger list.  I am stuck working out if he was married once or three times but I do know that Catherine died in 1838  Would love to know who the "wife" was he came out with. 

Regards

Martin Austin
