Apppleyard

From on Tue, 8 Feb 2005

Hi Elizabeth,
I think the error is a simple misunderstanding:
Peter Appleyard married in England in 1829 his first wife Anne Sheppard. So the couple Peter&Ann are not the parents of the poacher Peter Appleyard but Peter's first marriage. And his parents are the couple Samuel& Elizabeth nee Wood.
Bye - Sigismund

Subject: Appleyard Genealogy
Hi Sigismund
It was very interesting to hear from you and I am glad you are interested in the Appleyard family.
Peter Appleyard was born on 29 August at Lofthouse Gate, a small village near Leeds in Yorkshire.He was the second of 9 children of Samuel Appleyard and Elizabeth Wood - I can give you the names and birth dates of the others if you need them. Peter married Anne Sheppard in England in 1809 and they had 3 children before Peter was convicted of poaching ducks and transported to Australia in 1835. He was freed in 1840 and married Harriet Wheatley and had 8 further children in Australia. Peter's father Samuel was listed as an agricultural labourer in the 1841 census. I don't have any more information about Samuel at the moment and the informaton I have about John and his ancestors is all on my web site.

The Appleyards were not jews as far as I am aware. They were all baptised in Anglican churches. Biblical names such as Isaac, Samuel, Joshua, Joseph etc were very common in England in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries - in fact the majority of English people were given biblical names at that time.

John Appleyard's father was a farmer and miller and owned a farm at a little village called Thorpe-on-the-Hill near Leeds - most of his ancestors were farmers also.
I would be interested to know the pedigree of your son-in-law from Peter Appleyard. The only child of Peter about whom I have more information is Arthur Horatio Appleyard - which child is your son-in-law descended from ?

Good luck in your research.
Mike Appleyard

Ashman

Benjamin Ashman 33, came Oct 1854 on the Neleus with Harriet Ashman 28, Elizabeth Ashman 7 and Matilda Ashman 5 as Assisted British Immigrants

From on Tue, 13 Sep 2005

Hello Elizabeth
Benjamin Ashman, wife Harriet, daughters Elizabeth & Matilda came out on the Neleus, leaving Southampton 10 August, 1854. Their son James was born in Melbourne, to become my great-grandfather. Benjamin never was able to read and write, but left two houses, one to his daughters, the other to his son's widow in trust during her lifetime. It appears that Matilda dabbled a little before actually marrying William Key, having a daughter Louise/Louisa registered in 1867 without a father's name, and a rape charge is in the Victorian Police Gazette records. The charge was not followed through. Maybe she made up a story, and her parents high-tailed it to the police, only to find out that it was a story!

Benjamin was looked after in his later years by his daughter-in-law Edith Georgina (also known as Edie, or Georgina Edith). His Will is dated 10 March, 1904, and he died about 1908/1909.

Harriet's sister Susan and her husband John Reeves also migrated to Melbourne, having left Southampton via the Elizabeth on 14 April, 1853.

Horningsea is a small village outside of Cambridge. The day we visited, a wind from Siberia was blowing, and one could imagine poverty-stricken villagers struggling to keep out the cold! Have you cottoned on to anything by Colin Holt, who has extensively researched Cambridgeshire and its emigrants, and whose research I have found to be most helpful?

BOOK- (on two Genealogical Society bookshelves)
Holt, Colin S ‘No Sirs or Esquires’. The Story of assisted Emigration from Cambridgeshire to Port Phillip and Victoria 1840-1867 (SFHG location: 620 HOL - Shepparton)

No Sirs or Esquires, the story of assisted emigration from Cambridgeshire to Port Phillip and Victoria 1840-1867, Colin S. Holt M.A., Holt, Doncaster East, 2001 Index to Assisted Emigrants-Cambridge to Port Phillip District 1840-1867, A.I.G.S., Blackburn, 2000.
We thank Colin Holt for providing resources relating to Assisted Emigrants from Cambridge to Port Phillip District 1840-1867. His book, "No Sirs or Esquires", is described by Don Grant, President of the AIGS, as a "magnificent contribution to our history and to the history of Cambridgeshire … the most comprehensive treatise written on the history of immigration from Cambridgeshire to Victoria … a significant contribution to the general history of immigration to Australia …", whereas the "Index to Assisted Emigrants" has, until now, been available only at the AIGS.
