From on Thursday, 8 March 2012
Hi Elizabeth
I note that there is a reference to James Ferguson, with a possible death 1869 aged 48. This James is my great great grandfather who came out on the Grindlay in 1841. There was a fire on the original ship carrying Bounty immigrants, and they were rescued and taken to Rio de Janiero, and continued their journey on the Grindlay. He married my gg grandmother Margaret Kyle in 1850, and they had a number of children and settled in the Kilmore / Wallan / Euroa area.
There is a mystery about him though, in that on the passenger list on the Grindlay he had a wife, Eliza Ferguson, and there is a reference on another of these pages to a child born in 1842 to James & Elizabeth Ferguson and who also died in 1842, Isabella Primrose Ferguson. However, he described himself as a bachelor on the marriage certificate (very little information on it as it was 1850), and there is no reference to any previous wife on the death certificate – but that didn’t even have all his children on it. His death cert says he was in the colony 28 years.
I was able to pin him down as the same person as the one on the passenger list when I found an obituary to another Euroa man, Mr W Beaton, who was also on the India and Grindlay, and it made reference to Mr & Mrs Ferguson, (as parents of James of Euroa, my g grandmother’s brother) also being on the boat, implying that the present Mrs F was the same but although that was not correct, it still places James F on the ship.
I would love to know what happened to Eliza / Elizabeth, and why he claimed to be a bachelor on the marriage certificate.
I also have no information about him in Scotland –he possibly came from Edinburgh as that was on the passenger list (on line), and his death certificate says his parents were James & Margaret, and that he came from Scotland.
Regards Margaret Murray
The first thing I notice, is the change in religion, suggesting Margaret Kyle was the Church of England member, and second is both church events (baby and wedding) are in Melbourne.

From on Monday, 27 April, 2009

I am looking for advice or information on Thomas Field mentioned in your site.
Thomas Field born about 1794, wed in Hobart, Van Diemans Land in 1824 to Elizabeth Hall. He had the "Cape of Good Hope" Inn at Black Marsh or Apsley in Tasmania, left his wife who took over the Inn, travelled to Port Phillip c.1836. Purchased land at the first land sale in Melb. Had inns in Williamstown.
Went to Port Fairy, then on to Portland.
He married Alice Goldsmith, (married to James Murdoch (k)) in Portland in 1840, died in 1856 & is buried in Portland Cemetery, Victoria, Australia.
No one I know - knows - how, where from, why, when - Thomas Field came to Australia and I would be very grateful if you could help.
Thanking you, Pam Fenwick, Melbourne.

William Field, and Mary Kelton baptised female Mary Anne at Roman Catholic St Marys, Geelong born at Geelong 1842 # 508

From on Monday, 27 April, 2009

I started out researching a g.g.grandfather William Field who married Mary Kelter in 1841 in Geelong, Victoria and was told that the above Thomas Field was the father of this William Field. William & Mary Field farmed at Wurdi Buloc near Winchelsea, Victoria which is near the "Leigh(t) and Bunninyong", but the local Hist. Socs. cannot help me. Thomas Field "settler" is noted on William Field's Death Certificate as his father. I do want to collaborate all of this information.
In the meantime, I will work through your great website....
Thanking you, Pam Fenwick, Melbourne.
