See paragraph in Archives Tuckett immediately found employment in Batman's General Store at the junction of Collins and Williams Street, later accepting a position with Edward Westby and Co. general merchants, on Flinders Lane (Sutherland Smith, 1992, p. 57). Soon after, he was admitted to the partnership "and continued as such in the conduct of a lucrative business until 1860, when the firm was dissolved" (Obituary, Argus, 20 September 1904, p. 5), He then turned his attention to pastoralist pursuits, acquiring Springbank station, near Casterton, with the partnership proceeds. It proved to be a disastrous initiative, attributed to "bad seasons", and Tuckett returned to Melbourne in 1868 to practise as an accountant (Sutherland Smith, 1992, pp. 57-58; see also Obituary, Australasian Insurance and Banking Record, 1904, p. 806).

Rev Francis Tuckfield Wesleyam missionary at Geelong came 20 October 1839 on the Henry from George Town to Port Phillip
Francis Tuckfield, (1808-1865), missionary, was born on 10 May 1808 in the parish of Germoe, Cornwall, England and was twice married: first to Sarah Gilbart of Cornwall; and second 1857 to Mary Stevens of Glenorchy, Tasmania. Of his eleven children, three sons became ministers and four daughters married ministers. After a break caused by ill health, he took charge of the Portland Church, Victoria, in 1864. Next year he contracted pneumonia after attending a funeral, and died on 21 October 1865. He was buried in the Methodist section of the Portland cemetery.
He was accepted with Rev. Benjamin Hurst, as a Wesleyan missionary to the Aboriginals in the Port Phillip District. The two young men reached Hobart Town with their families in the Seppings in March 1838. Four months later Tuckfield arrived in Melbourne, leaving Hurst to follow. Seeking a suitable mission site, Tuckfield made several journeys around Geelong, often with William Buckley as interpreter, and finally chose an area on the Barwon River, near Birregurra. The Aboriginals with him developed an efficient farming property, and in 1850 the Government cancelled their grazing licence.

James Turnbull Directory 1847 general agent Brunswick James Turnbull, M, #50271, b. circa 1791, d. 11 March 1860
* Birth*: James Turnbull was born circa 1791 at Northumberland, Scotland.
* Death*: He died on 11 March 1860 at Yarra Bank, Richmond, Victoria, Australia.
* Burial*: He was buried on 13 March 1860 at Old Cemetery, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
* Occupation*: He was a Shepherd.
* Emigration*: He emigrated circa 1840; to Melbourne, NSW, Arrived on the 'Glen Huntly'.
Family: Isabella Ord b. circa 1792, d. circa 1849
* Richard Turnbull b. 16 Apr 1816, d. b 1916
* Unnamed Turnbull b. 10 Feb 1819, d. 1819
* Elizabeth Turnbull b. 29 Dec 1824, d. 1894
* Isabella Turnbull b. 22 Nov 1826, d. 1848
* Matthew Turnbull b. 16 Nov 1828, d. 1829
* Jane Turnbull b. 1 Dec 1829, d. c 1865
* Mary Turnbull b. 15 Jun 1834, d. c 1859
* Note*: He Little is known about James' life prior to his arrival in Australia.
From his death certificate we know that he was born and married in Northumberland England. The family obviously moved to either the parish of Ross and Cromarty or Sutherland in Scotland. Their daughter Mary was christened in Edderton in Ross and Cromarty, while their son William's marriage certificate indicates he was born in Sutherland.
In the Old Parochial Records for Sutherland, Scotland, there are no births or christenings listed for James Turnbull and Isabella Ord, however there are entries for the christening of children born to James and Isabella (Bell) Turnboll in Eddrachillis whose names and christening years correspond with the children of James Turnbull and Isabella Ord. Therefore we can only assume that these are the same family. The records also show that James and Isabella Turnboll had a son Mathew, who was christened on 18 December 1828. If this is the family which migrated to Australia, we presume that Mathew died in infancy.

James and his family minus their eldest son Richard received assisted passage to Australia under the bounty scheme. This scheme encouraged settlers in Australia to sponsor immigrants into the country. The settlers received a 'bounty' for special classes of workers and the scheme was financed through the sale of crown land to colonists.
Although the Turnbulls were described by the ships Surgeon as delicate they managed to survive and were put into the healthy section of the Quarantine camp.
Under the bounty scheme James was assigned to work for Mr Munroe c/- Bourke's for 12 months. For this period he was to receive rations and 40 pounds. The passenger list for the Glenhuntley indicates that James was 49 years of age and a shepherd by trade.
The family lived in Burnley Street, North Richmond and later owned land on the Yarra River.
James died at the age of 69 years from Febris Typhris which he had for 15 days. He was buried on 13 March 1860 at the Old Cemetery, Melbourne. The death certificate indicates that at the time of his death, James was a gardener and that he was 22 years old when he married Isabella Ord in Northumberland England.
James together with other members of his family were originally buried in site 394 of the Old Cemetery in Melbourne, however around 1922, 900 bodies were exhumed from the cemetery to allow for expansion of the Melbourne Market. The records show that the Turnbull grave was one of those exhumed and interred into site 351/2 of the Fawkner Cemetery. A headstone was placed on the grave however no inscriptions were made on it.
As with their early life we can only assume that the bodies of James and Isabella, daughters Jane, Mary, Isabella, Elizabeth and Ann together with Ann's 4 children are located in the Fawkner Cemetery, as in later years when excavating to add the sewerage to the Melbourne Market many bodies were located.
