My grandmother, JESSIE SARAH READY ( BELL) and her family  were resident in LITTLE YOUNG STREET REDFERN. i shall confirm the dates later but we were told the house was under where the Greek Orthodox Church now stands. The time in Redfern was late 1800s to early 1900s. I have found a few snippets as background for the times.

IN THIS YEAR : 1838 -JESSIE – JENNET-JANET MCLEAN (later MCNEIL) ON THE BRILLIANT

 

1838
The BRILLIANT brought Scottish Bounty Immigrants including :
JESSIE(JENNET, JANET) MCLEAN MOTHER OF MARY ANN MCNEIL( later to become known as GRANNY BELL of LAURIETON, wife of the Invalid Mr John Bell. ) Janet was born in 1831 so she was only a child of 6-7 when she came. Her parents were JOHN MCLEAN and GRACE MCINNES(McGuiness)

The John Bells during the 1880s are said to have had a house at Palm Vale on the Tweed and the accident which invalided him. apparently rendering him unable to walk and preceding their removal to LAURIETON, took place in the sugar industry on the Tweed near CONDONG and TUMBULGUM.

Mary Ann married John  in 1878 in Taree.

Inverness Courier Index 1837, p212

A large body of emigrants sailed from Tobermory on the 27th of September for New South Wales. The vessel was the Brilliant, and its size and splendid fittings were greatly admired. “the people to be conveyed by this vessel are decidedly the most valuable that have ever left the shores of Great Britain; they are all of excellent moral character, and from their knowledge of agriculture, and management of sheep and cattle, must prove a most valuable acquisition to a colony like New South Wales.” The Rev. Mr Macpherson, of Tobermory, preached a farewell sermon before the party sailed. The total number of emigrants was 322, made up as follows:—From Ardnamurchan and Strontian, 105; Coll and Tiree, 104; Mull and lona, 56; Morven, 25; Dunoon, 28; teachers, 2; surgeons, 2. A visitor from New South Wales presented as many of the party as he met with letters of introduction, and expressed himself highly gratified with the prospect of having so valuable an addition to the colony. A Government agent superintended the embarkation.

MCLEOD ON CONDONG PLAINS

So far we have placed John and Normal Bell with their families on the TWEED RIVER. We also have their sister Wilhelmina who married GEORGE DINSEY. There is a MR BELL christian name unknown supervising at ABBOTSFORD MILL( I don’t yet know which mill that was. ) Now a JOHN MCLEOD appears and McLeod is the maiden name of the mother WILHELMINA who came on the JAMES MORAN in 1839. She had other children with her whose names I don’t as yet have.

WANTED to Let, on Clearing Leases, Seven FARMS, of from forty to fifty acres each; fine scrub land; river frontage, Tweed River ¡ eight miles from the Heads. Apply to Mr. JOHN M’LEOD, Condong Plains, Tweed River ; or E. W. S. HAYLEY, Southgate, Clarence River. 2575

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article1295006

The Brisbane Courier Friday 30 August 1872, page 1.

This is 3 years after JOHN BELL acquires his land and 6 years before he married MARY ANN MCNEIL.

 

And in 1881;

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article919217

he Brisbane Courier Saturday 30 April 1881, page 5

“Unique” writes from the Tweed River:
” On the evening of Easter Monday the rather monotonous course of life on the Tweed was broken by a ball given by the employes of the C.S.R. Company, and which, under the kind auspices of Mr. and Mrs Isaacs, bids fair to become one of the annual events of the neighbourhood. A range of the barracks had been prepared for the festive occasion, and, although the weather was unpropitious, a goodly array of the votaries of Terpsichore assembled. The room had  been most effectively decorated by the hands of f$air neighbours-wreaths, crowns, and pendants of varied colours relieved tbe sombre green of the foliage with which the walls and roof had been profusely ornamented, and with the brilliancy of the lights and the bright eyes and flowing drapery of the ladies, combined to produce a tout ensemble seldom seen in the neighbourhood. Dancing commenced at 8 o’clock to the enlivening strains of three musicians, and dance succeeded dance in rapid succession till long past the small hours of the morning. At a late hour the party broke up with many expressions of pleasure on the part of the hosts that their guests had been sufficiently enterprising to brave such stormy weather, and of hope that on a future occasion Condong might again be honoured by their presence.

 

 

THE COTTAGE

THE COTTAGE BILAMBIL 2008

James had been born to John and Mary Ann by this time and Norman was born in 1881.

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article3429862 FROM BRISBANE COURIER THURSDAY MAY 8 . In 1884, Mr T Steel from the CONDONG MILL sent a large series of animals to the QUEENSLAND MUSEUM for nomenaclature.and two of those were included in science and named as follows;

    1. a tree frog resembling in coloration an American  species. Now named HYLA FENESTRATA and
    2. a fish of the GENUS GALAXUS which was to be described as GALAXIAS BREVIANALUS

The ABBOTSFORD MILL I find in the BRISBANE COURIER 5 AUGUST 1882 was erected near the JUNCTION – the village now called TUMBULGUM. This one did not belong to the massive COLONIAL SUGAR REFINING COMPANY to which CONDONG belonged. It belonged to PRINGLE, SHANKY and CO. Small but enterprising beginners.  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article3412851

 

IN 1886 the schooner CONDONG, of the TWEED RIVER, was carrying logs of beech, cedar and pine into BRISBANE. In the same year a general servant was wanted for the CONDONG MILL at 15s per week.

IN 1889 E DOWLING of Condong won 900 pounds in the  TATTERSALLS MELBOURNE- CUP SWEEPS.

And in 1892, the BELLS went south to LAURIETON. Some of the family remained. Wilhelmina Dinsey for one.

AND FROM TUMBULGUM, where I lived from 2002-2005;

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article3701412

The Brisbane Courier Tuesday 12 September 1899,

A correspondent of a New South Wales
top-country paper questions whether the
Hunter district is entitled to the credit of
producing the largest pumpkins. He says :
-” I read an account of prolific pumpkins
in the Hunter. The Hunter may be a won-
derful place for pumpkins, but a neighbour
of mine, at Tumbulgum, lost a sow not long

since. He searched everywhere for several
days without success, and at last came to
the conclusion that she was dead.- But one

We are requested to correct a mistake which occurred in the notice of the arrival of the ship York (Captain Leary) in our last number. The burthen of the York is there stated to be 429 tons, instead of 478 tons, as appears by the register, -which we bave seen. This vessel is not the old York, as some persons, we are informed, suppose.; but was built, in the year 1819, at Southwick, in Durham. Captain Leary, the commander, is an old and much respected visitant to this colony.

RETURN OF THE YORK,

We have to announce the gratifying
news of the safe return to port of the ship
York, together with the equally pleasing
intelligence that the apprehensions for

the safety of the crew, which a chain of
circumstances occasioned in the public
mind, turn out to be altogether ground
less. She anchored yesterday evening
about dusk, in Watson’s Bay, the passen
gers and crew all well. From the hasty
particulars which we have been enabled
to glean, it appears that her parting from
the Edward was occasioned by a strong
northerly wind, which induced Captain
Leary to alter his course, and endeavour
to make the passage through Bass’ Straits
When the ship was hailed by Captain
Gilbert, from the Edward, the wind was
so high, that nothing more than a con.
fused sound could be distinguished on

board, and, being unable to lay-to, she
proceeded on her course : the wind
subsequently veered to the southward
and, after beating about the straits for
several days, Captain Leary thought it
most advisable to return to Sydney. We
are most happy at being thus enabled
satisfactorily to allay the ferment which
a rumour so astounding in all the alleged
circumstances which gave rise to it, was
calculated to excite, not only in this Co.
lony, but in every part of the British
dominions to which it might reach.

 

FURTHER TO THE POSTCRIPT

TUESDAY, APRIL 12, LAST.

RETURN OF THE YORK.

We had the heartfelt satisfaction of
announcing in our last, in a hasty Post-
script, the safe return to port of the ship
York, which was supposed, from Captain
Gilbert’s strange story, to have been
piratically seized by the troops she was

conveying to Madras. We must now
give some explanation on the other side,
as derived from the very best authority.

On Sunday, the 27th ult., Captain
Leary, of the York, dined with Captain
Gilbert on board the Edward, and re-
turned to his own ship in the evening,
after arranging for the signals to be made
during that night. This was the last per-
sonal intercourse they had. The wind

was then N. E.

On Monday, the 28th, no communica-
tions took place, “and the wind continued
steady from the N. E.

On Tuesday, the 29th (the memorable
day on which Captain Gilbert supposed
the York to be captured), about 3 o’clock
in the afternoon, Captain Leary, find-
ing the wind so unchangeably contrary,
began to think seriously of putting

AND THEN THE YORK RETURNS TO SYDNEY AGAIN

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2200161

The Sydney Gazette and… Tuesday 19 April 1831, page 2

RETURN OF THE YORK AGAIN!

OUR good friend the York, has visited
us yet once again, having this time en-
countered dangers of no imaginary or
trifling order. She put back on Sunday,
with her rigging a good deal damaged.
The tremendous hurricane of Saturday

night and Sunday morning, was enough
to have foundered the stoutest ship that
ever floated, and when we remember that
it was from the south-east, and how near
the York was to an iron-bound lee-shore,
we may judge how imminent was her
danger, and how providential her escape.
But of this our readers will form a more
adequate conception by the subjoined
extract of a letter from one of the pas-
sengers, written to his friend in Sydney,
immediately after anchoring in Watson’s
Bay.

” You must be a little surprised to “find us
here again : the fears entertained for our
safety on the former occasion were more
sensibly felt by ourselves on this. We
sailed yesterday morning, with a fine wind
from the S.W., the weather looking very
dark and unsettled. About ten o’clock it
changed all round the compass, and at last
settled in the South-East, and increased to
a gale, accompanied with the most awful
thunder, lightning, and the heaviest rain I
ever witnessed, which continued the whole
of the day, and the sea ran to an immense
height. Our fore-top-sail-yard was carried
away-I rather think struck by lightning
the top-sail and two or three other sails

blown to ribbands : two of our boats stove
in. About two o’clock in the morning Cap-
tain Leary came to me, and said it was
necessary to have an additional number of
hands on deck-not that there was any im-
minent danger, but that we were on a lee
shove, and the ship having lost her head
sails, consequently was not easily worked
off. Every assistance was of course af-
forded ; and I am happy to have it in my
power to state to you that no men could

behave better, notwithstanding they had
not a dry shirt to their backs for 24 hour.
As far as my own opinion goes, I feel con-
vinced that his own crew would never have
been able to save the ship from going on
shore, as we were close to the land to the
southward of the Light-house, and the sea
running mountains high. However, thank
divine Providence, we got in as soon as day-
light would permit him to approach the
entrance to the Heads. I am happy to state
how grateful we all feel for Captain Leary’s
zeal and exertions; he never quitted the
deck the whole time; and but for his
thorough knowledge and experience as a
seaman, I really believe we should not have
survived to tell the tale. Our miseries did
not end here ; we bumped two or three
times on the bank at the Sow-and-Pigs.
I hope the ship has not suffered any mate-
rial injury, but it will be as well to have that
ascertained before we make another trial.”

We once more congratulate these brave
troops on their safety, hoping that after
all these untoward events, they will en-
joy a quick and pleasant passage to the
place of destination.

 

The Sydney Gazette and… Tuesday 26 April 1831, page 3 http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2200267 The York is immediately to be hove down, in order to her undergoing a thorough repair, previously to proceeding to sea once more. She cannot, therefore, leave this spot before the expiration of a month at least. The troops disembarked yesterday morning, and marched hack to their old quarters, looking like any thing but pirates, poor fellows !

DEVON

http://genuki.cs.ncl.ac.uk/DEV/index.html

“A county of England, reaching from the Bristol to the English Channel, and bounded by Cornwall, and Somersetshire, and Dorsetshire. It is 69 miles in length, and 60 in breadth, and is divided into 31 hundreds. It is very hilly, and abounds in huge granite rocks, some of whose peaks are above 1500 feet in height. The highland is covered with wide moors, of which Dartmoor is the most extensive. But in the valleys and lower ground the soil is fertile. Its rivers are the Exe, the Culm, the Dart, the Tamar, the Otter, &c. Some parts of its coasts are composed of lofty cliffs, but at others there is a beautiful sandy shore. The air and climate are so mild and salubrious that invalids often retire to its sea-ports for the winter. Limestone, granite, some building-stone, and a species of wood-coal are found here, as well as some kinds of variegated marble. It produces corn, &c. and fruit trees, especially apples, whence much cider is made. Its fisheries also are of value. Exeter is its chief city. Population, 533, 460. It sends 22 members to parliament.” (From Barclay’s Complete and Universal English Dictionary, 1842.)

  • The Government, however, have latterly proposed a measure for the encouragement and promotion of emigration which, if the settlers were at all alive to their own interests and disposed to cooperate in securing them, would be tantamount to the adoption of our original recommendation. For, at a cost for agency which would be altogether insignificant for each individual or family brought out to the colony, the respectable colonists might have seemed through the Government measure we allude to, the immediate introduction of two or three thousand families of virtuous and industrious emigrants of the classes chiefly required in the colony.

In Scotland, and the north of Ireland, where no such contribution could be looked for, but where the lower classes, being more intelligent, industrious and frugal, would be better fitted for roughing it in a new colony, virtuous and industrious families of these classes would willingly bind themselves to pay that amount from the first of their savings after their arrival ; and if in the event of their purchasing land on credit from the Company, this debt were to be chargeable on the land, its repayment would be secured.

In fact, the obstructions, the suspense, and the jobbing of the present system, tend to destroy, the property, if not work the absolute ruin €of the poorer class of immigrants. An individual of this description on his arrival is forced to leave his family in Sydney, whilst he proceeds to explore the north, the south, or the westward, for a suitable location

JOHN and NORMAN BELLS’ LANDS ARE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO TUMBULGUM. I came to live on the Tweed in 2001 and in Tumbulgum in 2002. My mother Joyce Bells and her sisters and brother grew up in Sydney in a street called TWEEDMOUTH AVENUE. My own granddaughter Madeline was born at TWEED HEADS HOSPITAL in 2004.

TRUCK PLUNGES

FROM PUNT

Ferryman Saves
Woman’s Life

MURWILLUMBAH, April 2.

When the hand punt was almost across the north arm of the Tweed
River at Tumbulgum late this afternoon a motor truck which It was con-
veying suddenly ran back, broke the gates of the punt and fell into the
river, which at this spot is eight or nine feet deep. The truck was driven
by Mr. O. Hicks, who was accompanied by his wife and Mr. and Mrs.
Daly, of Newstead, Brisbane.

Mrs- Daly, the only occupant of the truck at the time, was seated in the
driver’s cabin. The ferryman, E. Hill, realising her danger, promptly leaned
over the lip of the punt and pulled her back on board. While running to
his wife’s assistance Mr. Daly fell and badly injured his leg. Half an hour
later the truck was hauled out of the water by a breakdown car.

William Mayers, a publican, residing and keep

ing the Murwillumbah Hotel on the Tweed

River, assaulted and beat his wife while in the

pains of labor, and that when the mother was

delivered the child was found not only lifeless,

but with two bruises one on the right temple ;

OUTRAGE ON BOARD THE "INDIAN" EMIGRANT SHIP : DAILY NEWS 1850. SATURDAY FEB 16: LONDON

CONDITIONS ABOARD EMIGRANT SHIPS VARIED GREATLY. THE CRAIGS SAILED ON THE BEEJAPORE IN 1853 AND THE LOSSES WERE HIGH.

BELOW IS THE CASE OF THE “INDIAN” – AN EMIGRANT SHIP OF 1859 WHICH BROUGHT IRISH EMIGRANTS. THE “OUTRAGES” WERE RAISED IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS. WHILST OUR EMIGRANTS ARE APPARENTLY SCOTS AND ENGLISH , ( OUR IRISH HAVING ALREADY ARRIVED AS CONVICTS) THE ARTICLE BELOW IS CONTEMPORANEOUS WITH THE MCELODS, MACKAYS, SANDERS’ ,JACKSONS AND CRAIGS.

 

EMIGRATION ON SHIP INDIA  DAILY NEWS FEB 16 1850

EMIGRATION IN THE 1850s

Ancestors Known to have arrived as EMIGRANTS are

YEAR

SHIP EMIGRANTS
1839 JAMES MORGAN WILHEMINA MCLEOD WITH HER MOTHER JANET MACKAY AND HER SIBLINGS
1849 VICTORIA WILLIAM AND MARY ANN SANDERS
1853 WILLIAM BROWN WILLIAM JACKSON AND ELIZABETH JOHNSON (HIS WIFE) WITH ONE DAUGHTER.
1853 BEEJAPORE THOMAS CRAIG WITH HIS PARENTS AND SIBLINGS

 

 

The Sanders are marked on their disembarkation papers as “assisted emigrants”. The 19th century newspapers fill in a good deal of my lack of understanding of emigration in the 19th century. I have images of William Sanders and of Mary Ann Skivings Sanders but none of the other ” emigrants”.

MARY ANN SKIVINGS SANDERS MEN BLACKBERRY , FRED J, FRED W , ESSEL REECE

Mary Ann Skivings Sanders and the elderly gentleman seated is BlackBerry Bill Sanders:

NSW STATE ARCHIVES REEL 58.

SAUNDERS, Mary Ann. 19 years – farm servant – born Silverton Devonshire – daughter of George and Grace Skivings. Still living in Silverton. C of E – Reads and Writes – no relations living in Colony – in Good health.

The Researcher (whom I think may have been Dick Sanders) has added – ( SAUNDERS should read SANDERS )

THE JACKSONS. from READY OR NOT – compiled by PHIL READY.

On 17th May 1853 a sixty ton ketch, WILLIAM BROWN, had arrived in Sydney from Honolulu. Aboard were immigrants WILLIAM JACKSON and his wife ELIZABETH and one daughter. William who had been born in Nottinghamshire in England was a Coppersmith by trade. On 26th November 1849 , in London he had married EIZABETH JOHNSON who had been born in Norfolk England.

In 1853 William whose trade was very much in demand set up in business in Steven Street, Ultimo. The following year his address appeared in SANDS directory as BAY STREET GLEBE. Julia from whom I descend  was born on 5th June 1860 – listed as Newtown.

THE OTHER 2 FAMILIES OF EMIGRANTS SO FAR TRACKED ARE :

  • WILHELMINA MCLEOD who came from SUTHERLAND SHIRE with her mother and siblings : JANET MACKAY.

A LETTER FROM PRESTON – 1737

The SANDERS have been traced in a direct line back to Kenton, Devon, UK. from those of us living in 21st Century Australia. Below is an extract from the Country Journal or The Craftsman , a London Newspaper of the 18th Century. My week buried in the SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIAN GENEALOGISTS’ free trial of UK HISTORICAL NEWSPAPERS from THE BRITISH LIBRARY has provided me with many snippets which I will gradually add to the site. Some, like this one, are simply background – reflections of the times in which our ancestors lived. This letter is in the period when John Sanders and Susannah Kerswell were living in Devon. It is from the COUNTRY JOURNAL or THE CRAFTSMAN . SATURDAY APRIL 9 1737. LONDON ENGLAND. ISSUE 562. I thought the Kenton referred to in this edition was OUR KENTON in Devon but on reflection think it likely to refer to the Kenton which is now a neighbourhood within London. I have left the articles in as they do provide such vivid images of the times in England.  In addition I spent hours looking at miniscule print to locate these obscurities and I am not wasting them.

AND THESE ARE THE EXTRACTS FROM 1737

letter from preston 1737    

Yep. The wrong Kenton. This is the one near Harrow. Fires and burning seemed  a common occurrence. We read in the SYDNEY HERALD of 1831 of wee servant lasses running screaming from their workplaces with skirts afire. Melinda McNally was already in the service of Rev Richard Hill at the age of 9 . I myself am fond of the GREY HORSE called COW and would have bet on him. Izzy is of Polish Descent and doesn’t fancy encountering the spectres arising from “the Scarcity of Provisions ” .

What is Greville’s?

Back in 1872 they didn’t have phone books but they did have post office directories – people had a listing that so they could be found, much the same as a phone book but not all people ended up in the directory

Many Thanks to Helen Castle for making these pages available on the Web for free. Check her page on the CASTLE AND MALLOY FAMILIES. WE Are still looking for more details of Melinda Mcnally Kendall .

I have found several of my own relatives on the Grevilles listing. Including the Bells at Kynnumboon , Craigs on the Mcleay and Sanders also on Mcleay .
