I can’t find them entering Australia - They arrived sometime between 1851 and 1859 - or the deaths of Benjamin and Jemima. In the 1889 article he is the ‘late Benjamin Whiffen’.

I think the great grandson was taking a guess at the year of the family's departure when he placed his  inquiry.

Thank you all for your wonderful detective work! A veritable goldmine of information that I have now entered into my tree, and managed to fill a few gaps.

Thanks so much for all the time and care you've given to this.  It is greatly appreciated.

If it's not pushing the friendship, could I ask again for your help to locate information about Edward Deacon WHIFFEN. He was a brother-in-law of the aforesaid Thomas Henry Lancelot LEWIS, and was  born in London (Middlesex) on 28 AUGUST 1835. I have him in the 1841 and 1851 census but can't find him after that.  I'm not sure if he came to Australia with the rest of the family in 1852. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I can’t help with that one.

I’d like to find Benjamin and Jemima.  ;)

Jamjar I have found Benjamin and Jemima. They arrived in Sydney on 24 December 1853, but sadly, Benjamin died of a stroke on 8 January 1853. Can you image being in Jemima's situation - in a strange land with 7 children! I don't know if they had any friends or family in Sydney, but I think the family went to Rockhampton. I'm not sure what might have attracted them to north Queensland or what they might have done there.

I've become quite fascinated by this family (no relation to me) so I'm still looking.
