The march of Civilisation
I began these pages on 6 July 2007. Remember - many names belong to more than one individual. I added links but sadly many have now moved.
The Site is being rebuilt Nov 2013, with two indexes - ships listed per year, and people in alpha order, combining details.

I began these pages on 6 July 2007, when I added links but sadly many have now moved. The Site is being rebuilt Nov 2013, with two indexes - Ships listed per year, and people in alpha order, combining details. Remember - many names belong to more than one individual.

This is a story that has grown as Internet records have increased.
I began these pages on 6 July 2007 and did a quick survey of records then available to produce a superficial survey, when I added links but sadly many have now moved. During 2010 I began reworking the records to do a major revision of names, and added details of ships that arrived - up to 31 Dec 1841. Then in 2013 I completed adding data to the end of 1844 and studied newspaper records mentioning visits to Port Phillip before 1840.

The Shipping records of the passengers on the Bounty ships divides individuals into three Groups Couples - arrived as married couple, or children baptised but no record of marriage
Children either listed as arrived, or baptised. Noted many marriages are not followed by children being baptised. Single men and single women listed as arrived, as in colony or when they married.
Approximate totals, based on average using totals for first 97 pages, to end of surnames beginning with C.
Counted after I entered notes for 1846, in Nov 2008 - 436 pages total 41,545 - 5,088 Couples, 13,147 children, Singles - 5,771 women, 12,545 men

Names are shown with original surname and then revised surname to try to match records, eg - Jane Gaddis aged 20 came Feb 1844 on the Wallace, as Gaddip wed Henry Aaron Smith in 1846

Diary 1835 - 1842, in Rootsweb, is Extracts from a diary of Victoria dated from the first settlement until 1842
Concise accounts, including the voyage 1849 of James T Foord, can be found in books such as
"The Somerset Years" by Florence Chuk, State Library of Victoria, and "Perilous Voyages To The New Land", by Michael Cannon.

His epic journey was to be first to take a herd of cattle starting 4 Jan 1838 from the Goulburn River, along the Murray and to Adelaide.

Sadly, nothing is free for ever - host sites develop problems, and I APOLOGISE when you are inconvenienced.
My original free Geocities site was closed in Oct 2009. I designed new sites with new web addresses,
