Hello Lois All I know about Emily is that she was 63 at death in 1886 – but that is only from SA Deaths index and the age cannot be taken as absolute. So although it seems that she was born 1823 – you finding an 1826 birth might not be out of the question. Conversely the 1821 birth of Emily in Kent might have more credence. Where is that info - I have not discovered that source-
The records of the census 1851 fits the bill as far as I can see: My Robert was born c 1815 And the children Jane 1843 Sarah 1847 I don’t know of Henry – but that might not exclude the family
They would not appear in the 1861 census because they had a child Mary Ann Elizabeth in Littlehampton in June 1857. Therefore they emigrated after 1851 and before 1857 however I do not know when she (they) came to Australia I am most interested in the Census docs.
You are a treasure of information- but it seems we are not connected.
