From on Friday, 24 September, 2010

Hello Elizabeth ,
Thank you for your great website which I have just been introduced to.
I am connected to two couples who came on the Bounty ship ‘John Bull’ arriving in Melbourne in January 1840.
One couple is listed on your site – George and Eliza (nee Maidment) Roberts, numbers 68 and 69 on the shipping record.
The other couple is not on your site -- George and Thirza (nee Maidment) Haskell, numbers 72 and 73 on the shipping record.
However, George and Thirza Haskell are both listed in the 1847 Directory. My GGGrandmother was Jane Bishop (nee Maidment) who came in 1851.
Another sister, Maria, came with her husband, Thomas Leach, in 1853. The four sisters were from Donhead St Mary in Wiltshire.

Thankyou to Irene, I have united the entries for George and Thirzia Haskell here - the shipping lists them as Naskell.
