I have information on a John Shorten and his descendants. He migrated in 1854 on the ship "Anglo Saxon".There appears to have been two Shorten families on the ship.The details are as follows:
a. SHORTEN Anne, age 33 b. SHORTEN Emily, age 11 ( appears to be child of Henry and Anne, died in Parramatta in 1860) c. SHORTEN Henry, age 40 d. SHORTEN John, age 9 (appears to be child of Henry and Anne, and is of interest) e. SHORTEN John, age 45 f. SHORTEN Mary A, age 9 g. SHORTEN Mary A, age 40 h. SHORTEN Robert, age 6 i. SHORTEN Thomas, age 3 (appears to be child of Henry and Anne, died in Sydney in 1905).
If anybody is researching these families, would love to hear from you particularly John Shorten who married Christina Brewer in NSW, Australia
