Catherine Ford 18 (single woman 17) House Servant Prot both Co Armagh, came 30 July 1841 on the Westminster
Catherine Ford wed Charles Rout in 1844 at Presbyterian Geelong
Catherine Ford eighteen years old from Armagh Co Antrim Ireland. She was one of two hundred and forty six immigrants who arrived in good health although five deaths occurred during the voyage. The ship’s records show she was a Protestant and able to read and write.
It was from the tents that Catherine was employed as a house servant possibly in the Geelong area.
She met Charles Rout a former convict from Tasmania and a child Charlotte Rout was born June 1, 1843 at Geelong. Charles and Catherine were married on August 5, 1844 at the first little bush church of Geelong at the top of Yarra Street later to be called St Andrews Presbyterian Church. Records show that Catherine bore seventeen children, eight never reached maturity and there was twenty years between her first and last-born child.
So many births and so many children lost it is not surprising that Catherine was called on many times to assist other women with the birthing of their children. They moved to Saltwater, (Flemington), and then Westernport before settling at Spring Grove, (Cheltenham), about 1854. Known for her midwifery skills, she soon became known as Nurse Rout. Tom Sheedy writes in A Hospital for the People, “Near Church Street lived a professional nurse. Mrs. Rout who helped many sons and daughters of early settlers into the Moorabbin world. She trampled the bush tracks night and day in any weather.” The Moorabbin a Centenary History 1862-1962, also refers to Nurse Rout, as a fully trained professional “who moved into a small home near Spring Grove (south of Cheltenham ) in the early 1850's”. Where and how she obtained her training is not known.

Henry Bayles Ford was the Cape Otway light's head keeper from December 1848 until October 1878. Henry and Mary Ann Ford raised seven children at Cape Otway Lightstation, which is the oldest, surviving lighthouse in mainland Australia. The light, which has been in continuous operation since 1848, is perched on towering sea cliffs where Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean collide. For thousands of immigrants, after about 3 months at sea, Cape Otway was their first sight of land after leaving Europe.
The mystery of the seventh child's name was solved when I found Agnes Sophia Ford's death

William Ford came on the Wallace (864 tons) sailed from Liverpool on 3rd November 1843. The Fords were small tenant farmers in county Monaghan, Ireland, where the landowners had reduced the acreages of the tenant farms. No longer able to sustain a living for the family, in 1843 William and his 3 brothers decided that they must seek their fortunes outside Ireland. William, his wife Sarah Trew, and their infant daughter Mary arranged their assisted passage (18 pounds and seven shillings was recorded as bounty for each adult) on the Wallace, Departing with the ship's Master, Andrew Main, were a crew of 40, and 335 passengers (208 adults, 44 older children aged 7-14, and 83 young children under 7). In the tropics, diarrhoea broke out aboard the ship, and their daughter Mary died on 22nd November 1843 aged about 1 year. Sarah was pregnant at the time of departure, and gave birth at sea on 21st January 1844 to a baby girl - the ship's register records the birth of Mary Ford, but Caroline Ford is the name on the arriving passenger list. There had been 38 deaths recorded (11 adults, 1 older child, and 26 young children) from diarrhoea, dysentery and typhoid, and 5 births on the 15 week voyage, which arrived at Port Phillip on 16th February 1844

From on Sunday, 17 February 2013
Hullo again,
James Forrest was a convict transported to VDL per Melville in 1818, for life.
He first married a young women whom was likely to have been a convict but she died within two years. He then married an Irish girl, Bridget Houlahan, who arrived in Hobart, VDL, as a single and free woman and whom at the age of 23 years migrated to the colonies as a result of a bounty scheme arranged by the Emmigration Committees of England. She was on the Boadicea which left London on 2.10.1835 and arrived in Hobart, VDL, on 7.2.1836.
Perhaps James repaid the favour shown to his wife in employing another Irish girl? Perhaps James's wife was interstate and he needed household help? Bridget rec'd about 15 pounds pa when first employed in VDL, compared with about half of that for the apprentice girl at Merri Creek in 1850.
In 1850 Bridget appears to have been at Surrey Hills in Sydney ( not confirmed ) so employment of a housekeeper whilst he attended to the farm made sense. That has perhaps been the reason for his quick remarriages.
James and family shifted to Horsham, Vic, in the early 1850's, where he established a lodging house. He raised his family there and died there in 1872. He had there wives in all. His remarriages to Bridget and Agnes quickly followed the death of the previous in each case.
In short, james's life has been an interesting study of hardship and adaptation.
So, the discovery of the apprentice girl in 1850 adds substantially to the ancestral story and again shows that the story is always unfinished.
Regards, Allen Bills
