“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.

days without success, and at last came to
the conclusion that she was dead.- But one
day, while riding across his farm, he no-

pumpkins. He rode over to see, and was
surprised to find his sow. She had eaten
her way into the pumpkin, made a bed, and
had a litter of thirteen young ones all inside

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.

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
The Sydney Gazette and… Tuesday 12 April 1831, page 2.
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
ONCE AGAIN. READ ON THIS IS A GRAND STORY.
AND THEN THE YORK RETURNS TO SYDNEY AGAIN
The Sydney Gazette and… Tuesday 19 April 1831, page 2
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
” 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.

EVENTS OF 1831 http://www.jenwilletts.com/colonial_events_1831.htm
By Milton James Lewis
“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.)

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.

CESSATION OF FERRY SERVICES ON TWEED RIVER 1934
TWEED FERRYMAN SAVES WOMAN’S LIFE AT TUMBULGUM APRIL 1934
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.

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

Here its its intro :
Welcome to Old News Copy.

We are an information resource, providing copies of old newspaper articles, that we have indexed, from Victoria, Australia dating as far back as the 1800’s. You are able to search our archives and if you see something you like, you can use our order form to purchase that particular article(s).
BRAVO VICTORIA ! VERY NICE INDEED.
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.
Ancestors Known to have arrived as EMIGRANTS are
|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”.
NSW STATE ARCHIVES REEL 58.
ASSISTED IMMIGRANTS INWARDS TO SYDNEY PER SHIP ” VICTORIA” ARRIVED 2nd SEPT 1849.
SAUNDERS, William. 26 years. Butcher. Born Kenton Devonshire. Son of William and Elizabeth SAUNDERS- still living in Kenton. C of E – reads and writes. No relations living in Colony. in good health. Complained of short issue of rations during early part of voyage.
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 :
DAILY NEWS OCTOBER 7th 1850 LONDON ENGLAND
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
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 ” .
other KENTONS : http://www.rahul.net/kenton/OtherKentons.html
SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIAN GENEALOGISTS HAS PROVIDED AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A LOOK AT GALE CENGAGE LEARNING’S OLD UK NEWSPAPER FILES AND I AM TAKING THAT OPPORTUNITY.
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 .
