Quarantinedafter arriving, due to an outbreak of whooping cough having occurred during the voyage, it is fair to assume that both Sarah Booth died on 14th August, 1841, only four weeks after arriving in the new colony and their daughter Sarah Margaret died on 31st August, 1841 from this affliction. They were both buried in the Parish of St James, Melbourne and there are no details of the cause of their deaths on their Death Certificates
However, found in the Victorian Public Record Office Series 19 (Inward correspondence, Supt. Port Phillip, C.J. LaTrobe) unit/box no. 17, letter 41/1129, dated 6 Aug 1841, when Dr Paterson reported that from the "England", 4 women and 3 men, who were in need of medical treatment, had been placed in tents on arrival and one of these was Sarah Booth.
Found in Rootsweb from Abygail, I have a Daniel Kelly whom I think travelled with a brother/cousin? (Thomas Kelly) to Australia in 1841 on board the ship 'England'.
