His first wife, Margaret died at the Nth. Head Quarantine Station whre she is buried. Physical location of burial plot is now unknown other than being in “The First Burial Ground” which was in use until the latter part of 1853.

“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”
