Mary Ann Fitzgerald and her sister Martha Fitzgerald were accompanied on the voyage on the China by their aunt and uncle, William and Jane Sparrow along with two of their children, Elizabeth and Mary Sparrow. Jane Sparrow nee Gladwin was a sister of Mary Ann and Marthaís mother.

Williamís full name was William Chambers Sparrow b 1798 Lacken, Wexford, Ireland d 1883 Melbourne, Victoria, Jane was his second wife she was Jane Gladwin b 1798 Wexford, Ireland d 1860 Melbourne, Elizabeth and Mary were her step daughters. William remarried in 1861 to a Clara Shakel nee Swallow. William became a Customs Officer in Melbourne.
You have the correct husband for Mary Sparrow b 1823 Wexford, Ireland d 1853 Benalla, Victoria, wed in 1844 to Richard Clark b 1817 Hailing Kent, England d 1869 Benalla, Victoria.
Elizabeth Sparrow b 1824 Wexford, Ireland d 1886 St Kilda, wed in 1847 at the home of her father in Melbourne to Alexander McLaurin b 1823 Dunoon, Argyleshire, Scotland d 1872 Deniliquin, New South Wales.

From on Wednesday, 9 February, 2011

Hello Elizabeth Thanks for the prompt reply.
Where John and Mary went after arriving is a bit of a mystery really....The theory I am working on is this....this is the first marriage of John Spearin. I think Mary died in 1854 ( as Mary Ann SPEAN) , and I know for sure that John married Mary Ann Buckley, in Jan 1856, at GEELONG , then moved straight away to Sydney . Here they had 5 issue with Mary Buckley passing away in 1864. John marries again in 1867, and I am descended from this possible third marriage.
My story really starts with the marriage cert of John and Mary Buckley in Geelong , 1856. I can find no shipping records for him however, so I am thinking he came on the Diamond, in 1841.

John Sperring wed 1856 #462 to Mary Buckly died 142/1864 aged 33, and children are born in Sydney John Speerin wed NSW 705/1867 to Elizabeth Summers

Note from on Sun, 13 Apr 2008
Megan's ancestor was Alice Maud Elizabeth Spice born 9 May 1868 Ballan, VIC died 5 Jan 1929 Flemington NSW. Her father was William Spice born 4 Feb 1844 Bacchus Marsh VIC - unable to find death record in VIC, NSW, TAS, SA or WA. His father was Thomas Spice born circa 1814 Suffolk UK died 11 Sep 1890, Ballan VIC. Thomas married Bridget Whelan on 28 April 1843 in St James Church Melbourne. Bridget died on 20th Jan 1880 at Ballan VIC from Typhoid Fever which she had had for three weeks. Certified by Dr Marr. Her age on the death certificate was stated as 60. Her mother and father's names were unknown - her husband was recorded as Thomas Spice of Ballan, she was buried on 21st Jan 1880 at Ballan New Cemetery. It was not known where born, but it is recorded that she had been in Victoria for 40 years. She was married at age 21 in Melbourne. Her children at the time of death were William 35, Mildred 34, Thomas 33, Amelia 30 and Mary 28. Reference 1880/361
If she was the Biddy Whelan who came on the Strathfieldsaye in 1841 aged 23 - in 1880 at the time of her death she would have been 62 but her age was recorded as 60. If she had been the Biddy Whelan who came on the Marquis of Bute in 1841 aged 18 - in 1880 she would have been 57.
I realise that they didn't always give their correct age to the authorities at time of immigration so it could still be either of these. The reason I had thought my Biddy was the Marquis of Bute one was that her age would be closest to being 21 at time of marriage in 1843. I have had a good look at your website (which is fabulous actually) and when I saw the information at the top of your page that the Biddy Whelan who married Thomas Spice in 1843 came out on the Strathfieldsaye, I just had to write to ask you how you know it's this one.
Have attached Spice marriage certificate - unfortunately it doesn't say much except the names of the witnesses. No parents etc.
Bridget is buried in the Roman Catholic section of the New Ballan Cemetery Plot 197. Tom is buried in the Wesleyan section of the same cemetery. He remarried after that but his second wife only lived two years. Tom was a convict sent to Van Diemans Land from Suffolk for 7 years (from 1834 - he came out on the William metcalf from Portsmouth 23 May 1834 arrived VDL 4 Sept 1835) for stealing two watches. He was assigned to a Mr Chaffey in Hobart and was not in a prison there. From "The Walsh Papers" which are memoirs of the early settlement of Ballan Shire Mrs Spice (Bridget) was the first white woman to live in Ballan. After Tom & Bridget married in 1843 they must have gone straight to Ballan where Tom had a tannery and leatherworks. I think you'll find that what looks like "Nason" on the register is actually Roscrae which is on the border of Tipperary and Offaly counties. That old writing is hard to decipher isn't it. Thanks again for your interest.
