Outboard ships from Australia.
« on: Tuesday 14 May 19 15:51 BST (UK) »
Hi, I am trying to find my family travelling back from Australia around 1850 - 60
There's plenty of information about people going to Australia but not the other way!!

Arthur Blake went to Adelaide Australia in 1849 and his future wife Sarah Agnes Gower went in 1850... I guess assisted, as a group of seamstresses.
They married in Adelaide and had a child Agnes Eliza Bradley in 1851. ( I have all the details.)
Sadly there are no family details on the marriage certificate & I am trying to find James father ( for over 25 years ) :-\
All three were back in the UK by 1863 as the child was christened in London.

The one little glimpse of light for me is when Agnes was christened, the following Children's father in the church book was Joseph Bradley and both families were living at the same address!!
This was Joseph's second marriage & I'm wondering if James was from the first marriage although I cannot find any earlier marriage!!

Sadly it's all tentative searches from now on.

Hope some kind soul can help in some way... to find them travelling back home.
Kind regards Ken Bradley.

Agnes Eliza Bradley

Wondering why she has a different surname if she belonged to Arthur Blake?

Or was Bradley her married name?

Could this be him in 1841?  I see from his marriage to Charlotte his father was Benjamin.

I can see that Sarah Agnes Gower married James Bradley in 1851. Who was Arthur Blake ?
