“Not having alluded to the deaths from time to time as they occurred I will now mention that since leaving England up to this time we have had 56, all infants and young children, with one exception, viz. a country lad named Rowarth who died from apoplexy – he was about 15 a very sleepy looking customer, and blessed with an enormous appetite to which I think in some measure may be attributed his death – as far as we can humanly speak. – There have also been 10 births on board, some of which children died, and are include in the above number”

LOOKING FOR IMAGES OF THE BEEJAPORE WHICH BROUGHT THE CRAIGS AND HURRELLS IN 1853
Do you have a picture of the Beejapore. My husband’s great great grandfather was Joseph Drayton and although I have searched I have not been able to find a picture.
via DECEMBER 25 2011 : Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we are here for something else besides ourselves. Eric Sevareid. « the GEM COLLECTION 2011.

Hi Lynne – Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Just a short note to let you know I’ve decided to commit my family history info to http://www.wikitree.com/
I’d previously considered using the likes of Ancestry etc, but the idea of my info being locked away behind a paywall irritated me. Similarly, paying to host a site for myself seemed unsustainable. So the Wikitree seems like a better option – someone else maintains & manages the site & the info is freely available to all.
I’ve put some of the Bryce info up there – and was quickly contacted by a Pentland researcher from UK who I gather has already been in touch with you.
Have a look. If you are interested in adding to or building on to what I’ve put up so far, send me a request & I’ll add you to the trust group to manage pages.
(I’ve only put up basic info & narrative & a few photos – still to learn stuff like footnotes & citations.)
