    12 October 1829

  • Notes 
    • "The Hentys" by Marnie
      Bassett spells out the tale in fine detail ...

      The Henty family chartered the CAROLINE to send out their advance party to the Swan River Colony and had to arrive before the end of 1829 with money and goods in tow (investments in the new colony) to qualify for offers of grants of free land ... part of the goods, apart from sheep & provisions, was servants.

      Of the 65 passengers on board (cabin and steerage) many were servants, not only to the Hentys but to the other gentlemen on board ...Camfield, Talbot, Trimmer, Everard and Alfred Stone 28, solicitor and "a good shot, whose mustachoes were black".

      Camfield's servants were Frederick & Frances Friend and child Mary Ann, and William Smith and wife and son William.

      The Henty servants were George Hills and his wife, son and daughter, while other labourers and servants were listed as Mr & Mrs Chipper, Mr & Mrs Gee and 5 children, Mrs & Mrs Rewell and daughter, Mr & Mrs Bushby and 2 sons, Mr & Mrs Sandford and 4 sons and 6 single men by the names of Price,
      Patterson, Dyer, Barnden, Haybittle and Goble.

      No other names jump off the pages at me but Erickson says William Criddle arrived on the Caroline and was A.H. Stone's servant and Phoebe was his youngest child, born in 1870.

      The HENTY servants were nearly all old employees of the family in Sussex UK and "signed on to serve Thomas Henty, gentleman, or his agents, as dutiful servants for five years in return for a free passage, twenty pounds a year, fuel, and board.

      The Henty's had a rough time of it in the colony and moved on to Tasmania and settled in Launceston where their father and the rest of the migration caught up with them. One son, Charles, set up a shipping business and took goods around to Fremantle, as well as setting up business in South Australia
      and their Victorian claim to fame of settling the Portland area.

      It states in a book that the name may have been taken from Crit Hall in the small town of eneden. Willam Criddle was born 1804 in Kent (not sure where)his surname was spelt Crittal,and his hometown was tunbridge wells, he came to Western Australia as indentured servant to a solicitor Mr Alfred Hawes Stone, William was released from his indenture in 1830 to make his own way in the colony. After working for a few years in the Perth area, WIlliam went to Toodyay, or Newcastle as it was then known, he met future wife, Elizabeth Thomas, who was born in Bristol U k. They were married at "DEEPDALE" the home of Elizabeth in 1840,he was 36 years and she was 18 years they had fourteen(14) children.
      William was a stonemason and a builder. The Perth gasette of 1842 mentions that the Police Barracksat Toodyay was built by Willaim Criddle he eventually moved the Greenough flats on his own land and engaged in farming, there is much more to this story but cannot write it all on this message.I am not sure where you live, I shall check your email address later, but if you are interested and you don't know already Greenough is about twenty five kilometres south of Geraldton, it is now a tourist area and has a renovated hamlet, and there are various old buildings and ruins in the area (we go there often researching) many of these buildings at Greenough and Dongara were built by William. He died at Greenough 12 may 1875 (i shall ask my wife where he is buried) his wife Elizabeth died in Dongara in 1909 and is buried in Dongara cemetery. One last point the first child of William and Elizabeth was Anne Criddle she married a John Patience (they were my wife Pamela's g/grandparents)John Patience was number two (2) convict on arrival,from England,that is another story.
