vic1847 From on Thursday, 14 January, 2010

Hi Elizabeth,
I have searched assisted and unassisted arrivals to VIC to no avail for the arrival of my ggg grandparents. My Aunt[deceased], over twenty years ago, did a family tree, and it says they came out on the "Sultan", 13 Feb 1842, to Port Philip.
Thank you for this information that you have put on the web. Is there any way I can clarify that the Mr and Mrs Hull mentioned are indeed William and Ann Hull? But they also had quite a few children and no mention is made of them.
If it is them, then I'm still stumped as to when my gg grandfather William Henry Hull came out, if not with them. He would have been about 24.


Is this your Hull family?
William Hull died 1874 aged 79 son of Ann Glyde and William Hull
