Information from Margaret.
You mention my Great Great Grandmother's name, Emma Ada Carter/Twite. When I opened your site I see you have the shipping records of her coming back to Australia with my Great Grandmother Annie Maria and her other daughter Laura,
Emma and her husband Robert Twite ( who you have s/o Robert Twite and Maria Bridges) were both transported to VDL, Robert going to Norfolk Island first.
Emma had Laura Emma Ada Carter-Twite and George Koelher on their wedding day 1869 and another child in Tassie who died in childhood. She went back to England to stay with Robert's parents when she was pregant with my G.Grandmother, Annie. She came back to Australia in March 1859 on the Southampton when Annie was nearly 12mths old, Laura was 6 and Emma said she was 25.
Robert and Emma had another child Fredrick in Tasmania before they came to Victoria where Mary and Charles were born. Robert died 28th July 1865.

Emma married George Koehler 1869 and this photo was taken on their wedding day. They had 1 child Louisa.
