Re: Immigrated from England to Aust. 1838
My intrest is in the Masters from Brockenhurst who (I have been told) were the Blacksmiths there for about 400 year. Thomas Simon Masters (B 28 April 1852) went to Aus in 1875.
On the Hampshire / Wiltshire border I came across the Burial in Whitsbury on 22 November 1789 of Mary, wife of Richard Masters, aged 54. In a Whitsbury parish census of 1784, Richard a carpenter was living with his wife and a servent.
