To Mary & interested listers,
AONSW reel 2654 p.228
A return of the disposal of the immigrants by the ship British King from
Tobermory which arrived in Sydney on 28 February 1839 under the
superintendence of Dr Arbuckle.
This list contains; number, name, native place, calling, age of husband and
wife, age of children; boys and girls above 14, boys and girls below 14 &
children under 7, religion, by whom engaged - name and address, wages per
day, week or year, whether with or without rations.
For instance; Unmarried Male - No. 34, JOHN MCCALLUM, Island of Mull,
Footman, age 20, Presbyterian, employed by the Lord Bishop of Australia for
30 pounds per year with rations.
This lists every head of family or single person emigrating.
AONSW reel 1299 contains the entitlement certificates for every passenger.
Between these two lists combined it tells of passengers sick, dying or
dead. There is no account of the voyage and to the best of my knowledge
doesn't really indicate relationships to extended families on board. By
the disposal list you can determine who went where in terms of the same
employer or same district.
There is an index about the libraries of relations already in the colony
which may be a help in determining 'why they went where they went'.
Mary, have you got access to these Bounty immigrant records?
