From The Diaries of Rev. Theophilus Taylor, 23 September, 1853 - 1 August, 1856. (Australia).Transcribed by Jill, Walter and Brian Wood (1997).
"Commenced Sep 23rd 1853, the day I embark as a missionary to Australia.
1853 Sep 23 - A most solemn crisis in my History. In company with Revs JS Waugh (from Ireland) W Hill from Ceylon, WP Wells from Newfoundland, C Akrile from Horncastle & J Albiston from Manchester I embark on board the "Beulah" (owner Captain Lidgell Commander W Garland) at Gravesend for Australia as a Missionary."
Does anyone know who this J. Albiston from Mancester is?
Would like to hear from any Australian Albiston's who are researching the Albiston name.
