Hi again Elizabeth, I can't trace Jane Waldron with total certainty, but I think she is the Jane Waldim that was on the same ship out as John Emerson. Hard to imagine there weren't some romances given the length of the voyage. John and Jane were married exactly 1 month after they arrived - the main reason for the shipboard romance theory. It also makes sense that they were both Irish Protestants. John and Jane both died in Bendigo. Their son, William, who was a bit of a horror story went to Tasmania and he is my wife's ancestor. A long story!! With best wishes. Thanks again. Chris
Monday, 12 November 2012 Hi again Elizabeth,
I didn't know quite what you meant a couple of emails back about details recorded after civil registrations started. (Nearly all my research has been Tasmanian). I had William Waldrons birth record, but that was 1851. I now realise what you meant - more details recorded from 1853 with Civil Registrations. I had Jane Waldron born County Kildare which adjoins County Queens from her death record. Anyway, I forked out $20 for the birth record for a child of hers born after 1853. I was pleased to see Jane had recorded her place of birth as County Queens, so now feel very confident Jane Waldim (ship manifest) = Jane Waldron ancestor. Bye,.

Elizabeth replied - Sorry - I neglected to tell you Victoria gained Separation, then set up Registration of all Births, Marriages and Deaths. Before about 1854, only clergy records were involved.
