From on Thursday, 22 January, 2009

Hello Elizabeth
I see you linked 4 facts relating to 'F Perry'. As the gg granddaughter of Alice Ann Perry I am sorry to say that none of the facts is connected to the others.
Francis Perry (father of Alice) arrived from Dublin via Sydney aboard a convict transport ship named the Westmorland in 1838.
While Grace Bowden and Francis did indeed baptise Alice in 1841, by 1845 Grace Bowden was married to another man - she and Francis never married and only had the one illegitimate child.
Kindest regards, Jenny

David Louis Pettavel wed Esther Keanan in 1847 at Church of England Christ Church, Geelong
David Pettaval a Swiss émigré, upon arriving in Port Phillip Bay on the barque Platina in 1841 he immediately recognised in the hills behind Geelong a fine place in which to grow grapes and produce wine. He returned to Switzerland to recruit more wine-makers and soon turned the area into one of the most productive grape growing regions in Australia.
In 1842 a young Swiss emigre, David Pettavel, arrived in the fledgling Port Phillip on the barque Platina in 1841. He headed not for Melbourne but for the hills behind Geelong where his instincts told him he could continue the craft he had learned in his homeland - wine making. Pettavel is credited with planting the first wines in the colony and soon after, bottling the first wine.
