They came by ship - Assisted Immigrants who arrived 1849

Passenger lists - NSW lists as families or singles, Victoria has age of individual, or C=child, A=Adult.
Some are not on both lists, people slip between the lists - Vic includes crew and maybe the paying passengers.
I indicate if I have viewed the fiche containing photographed images of the Returns of Passengers. This is sometimes difficult, maybe impossible (lovely word - 'illegible') and frustrating when people are so important they are listed as Mr and Lady, when I want the forenames.

See Haley family - William HALEY (s/o Wm) m Ann NICHOLLS 26 Jul 1846 Saint Matthew, Bethnal Green, London, England [IGI Batch No M046987 extracted from parish records] (Also a submitted entry for 25 Jul 1845 IGI Batch No 8611430) In any case it would seem that at least the first child was from a previous marriage.

Fred Hull was born in Marylebone London in 1831, he was a baker and his father, William was a shoe and bootmaker b abt 1783 Yeovil Somerset ...Fred came out as an assisted migrant in 1849 on the Caroline Agnes and went home for a visit in 1855 on the BLACKWALL.
Fred and Margaret seem to have married at the home of John Douglass, Lambeth St and the minister was a Congregationalist His wife, Margaret SPENCE ( a servant in 1859) was born 1837 in Carrickfergus, Co Antrum Northern Ireland. It appears she came out to Port Phillip in 1857 on the ALMORA with her mother Janet b 1799 and a sister Jane SPENCE b 1833. The father, John was a farmer but he must have already died by 1857, as he wasn't on the ship. Frederick Hull, aged 40 years, native of London; arrived 1849, in the Caroline Agnes; died January 2 [1877], of pleuro-pneumonia.

In 1849, two of the sons of John and Ann Wilson - Benjamin and Henry, applied for and were granted assisted passages from England to New South Wales and they took ship on the 8th March 1849 bound for Sydney, NSW. Benjamin was aged 19 years and Henry was just 17 years old. The journey as far as Port Melbourne took three and a half months and we know that both brothers had birthdays aboard the Caroline Agnes. It is not known why they left the ship in Melbourne, but it may have had something to do with discussions they had with other passengers onboard during the voyage. In the event, they ended up at Geelong. See Ossett Wilsons.
