There seems to be something very strange about what this family did in relation to travelling to and from Australia.
I believe that William b1790 (or 1809 on some records) was the brother of one of my ancestors.
Susannah and William are back in England living in Chelsea on the 1851 Census.
This is the extraction:
41 Queen St Chelsea
Wm Seabrook abt 1795Devonport Head Susanah Seabrook abt 1802Devonport Wife Charlotte Seabrook abt 1831Van D Land Daughter Ewdo Seabrook abt 1844Guildford, Surrey, England Son Martha Seabrook abt 1838Guildford, Surrey, England Daughter Saml Seabrook abt 1840Guildford, Surrey, England Son Thos Seabrook abt 1835Guildford, Surrey, England Son
On the 1861 Census some of the informatio differs - his birth location and DOB are different and Susan has also changed her DOB.
42 Queen St Chelsea.
Susan Seabrook abt 1811Devonport WifeView Record William Seabrook abt 1809Guilford, Surrey, England HeadEliza Seabrook abt 1841Chelsea, Middlesex, England Daughter Samuel Seabrook abt 1838Guilford, Surrey, England Son
I cannot find the family at all on the 1841 census.
I am still trying to confirm a definite link between William Seabrook and my John Seabrook b1805 Stoke nr Guildford Surrey.John's father was Thomas Seabrook (Saybrook), I do not know where he was born but he died in 1815 at age 46 so he was born abt 1769, which would also make him old enough to be the father of William regardless of whether William as born in 1790 or 1795 or 1809.
This is starting to look like a very interesting family.The other information my mother told me was that the Seabrooks were also supposed to have an Irish link.
