From on Sat, 9 Feb 2008

Dear Eliza Jan,
I have just come across a web site of yours which mentions Richard Stevens who was an ancestor of mine. Your information does not include the eldest son William George, from whom I am descended.
Richard Stevens went to Tasmania about 1833, came to Melbourne about 1839. He could be the R Stevens listed at Portland in 1839, came on the 'Sally Ann' with the Hentys. He married Elizabeth Hill at St James in Melbourne - she came here on the "Argyle". He worked as a waterman with the Customs in Williamstown and later acquired land at Beaufort.
I have little information about Richard's early days here, lots about his family in England - their history crossed paths with Wordsworth who helped them when the children were orphaned, and many other contacts. Their uncle married a cousin of Nelson. I have almost no information about Richard from the time he was orphaned in 1819 and his arrival in Australia. I also have very little about his life in Williamstown except for a list of children.
Would be glad to hear from you, Trish Steward

From my Vic before 1847 page,
Elizabeth Hill 19 (number 25 in the list of single woman) Housemaid, Protestant, reads, from Somersetshire, came 1 Mar 1841 on the Argyle
