From on Tuesday, 22 December, 2009

Dear Elizabeth
Thank you so much for your quick replies and all the information you included. I now understand much more. Having the NSW webpage has certainly helped as well. I fear I cannot tell you anything about the family since they were not technically relatives, rather James Alderton was the sibling of Mary Anne Alderton who married into my Taylor family. (Notes in Alderton entry.)
The only thing I can add is that John Taylor and his wife Mary Anne ( nee Alderton), together with their family, also arrived on the Dale Park in 1944. They too were sent on to Geelong. Two of their children, John and Robert, married sisters from Tasmania, Bridget and Mary Grehan respectively, at Christ Church in Geelong in 1854 and 1865. At some time both families seem to have moved to New Zealand as they are buried in Invercargill and Winton respectively. Unfortunately I have been unable to find any record of their arrival in NZ, but I am in touch with someone in NZ who is going to make further enquiries when she next visits the PRO there.
Thank you once again for your help, With best wishes
Andrew

From on Thursday, 17 July, 2014,
Hi Elizabeth,
I am researching my grandmother's step-mother Sarah Lucy Taylor (married Charles Walker in 1896 ). She was the daughter of John Walwyn Taylor and Sarah Thomas who came to Australia in about 1840. They lived in Port Fairy (Belfast) and had six children there.
John Walwyn Taylor was born in St Kitts, West Indies and in 1856 built the Star of the West hotel in Port Fairy. Both their death certificates state that they married in Melbourne but I cannot locate any marriage record. Their children were born in 1841, 1843, 1846, 1848, 1850 (Sarah Lucy) and 1852. I don't know if Sarah Thomas was English or West Indian but I think she may have been English. She possibly arrived on the ship Andromanche in 1840. I don't think John Taylor was a convict. Do you know how I would find out if they married in Melbourne and what ship John Walwyn Taylor arrived on? Any advice would be much appreciated, Regards Gill Farrell

From on Thursday, 6 October, 2011
Dear Elizabeth,
I am trying to clarify an arrival - Robert Taylor and his wife Mary, arriving Port Phillip on the Alexander 24th December 1841.
My research says that Robert and Mary had children before they left Galway in Ireland in 1841, however, from your passenger list, I see that only Robert and Mary seem to be arriving in Australia. Were accompanying children always included in the passenger list? The children I have are John b.1833. Anne 1835. Thomas 1837. Maria 1840, so they would have been accompanied by four children. I would be grateful for any information you may have.
With thanks. Barbara Aldersea.
The last two recorded children of Robert Taylor and Mary Willis are
Ellen Taylor 1851 #45941, christened Roman Catholic, Portland
Michael Taylor 1855 #11508 born and registered at Castlemain
Civil registration of all births was introduced, after Ellen was born.
Purchasing Michael's birth certificate can be hoped to include a list of all his older siblings, and if they are dead, or their age listed.
Maria Taylor 1840 - 1922 #7607 aged 82 dau of Mary Willis and Robert Taylor, wed John Deery
Cath Taylor 1850 - 1924 #4714 aged 74 dau of Mary Willis and Robert Taylor, wed Michael Dwyer
