  • Notes 
    • farmer. "PELL Bridge" Brand Highway near Dongara.
      The "Sophia" brought 250 immigrants to Western Australia, 4 of whom were engaged by Lefroy to work for him, namely John and Ester Pell, a shepherd and a boy. Their rates of hire were 16 pound. 15 pound and 10 pound per annum respectively.
      Esther was already pregnant, but they set out in Lefroy's bullock cart for Walebing. It had been arranged for Mrs Doust to come from "Bebano" to attend Mrs Pell at her confinement, but when the time came John Pell was away working so Lefroy sent a native boy to Clinch's for help but when Mrs Doust arrived she found a healthy baby boy awaiting her, he had been born just after midnight on 15th November 1850. George as he was named, was the first white baby to be born in the Victoria Plains.

      The Pells remained in Lefroy's employ until after the birth of their second child. About this time Gerald de Courcy Lefroy made over "Walebing" to his brother Anthony, who installed John Joyce, a Toodyay workman, as his station manager. The Pells then worked for "Squire" Phillips of "Culham" Toodyay, and when he took up land in the Irwin district in late 1880's, Pell was employed as Phillip's shepherd. The ruins of their first home are close to Cadji Station east of Mullewa before returning to Dongara where John Pell sr. took up land north of the town, naming the property Wimpole, after his birthplace in England.

      John C Pell was the son of William Pell and Frances B: 1831 in England. He married Esther Bright their bans where read in Wimpole 28th October 1849. He and Esther emigrated to Western Australia on the "SOPHIA" They where both 21 years old when arrived with John brother George he was 19.
      He was a farmer at PELL'S Bridge on the Brand Highway near Dongara.

      Notes on the Arrival of SOPHIA

      Arrived in Fremantle with a crew of 33 and the Captain was John Claborn he received 25 pound for the
      journey. The weather was hot and calm for most of the 3 month voyage. The younger passengers where able to cool off in a sail on deck filled with water.
      Supplies where inadequate- no fresh water was taken on after they set sail and oranges proved to be a novelty with the passengers.
      The ship was 537 ton teak and yellow metal and was built in Calcutta India in 1819. Sophia arrived in Western Australia on July 27th 1850.
      Settlers traveling to the Swan River in 1850 were required to pay a rate up to twice that required from those contemplating passage to America and Canada, All who where assisted emigrants on SOPHIA contributed towards their fare.

      When SOPHIA arrived in Fremantle the where no Wharf's and immigrants could not remain on board for the interview with prospective employers.

      The acute accommodation shortage led to the leasing of several buildings in Perth and Fremantle. Some of immigrants were placed at the disused steam driven flourmill below Mt Eliz on site where the Swan Brewery was later built. While in residing at the Immigration Depot, adults daily rations were:-
      1lb bread,1lb meat, ½ lb potatoes, 2 oz sugar, ¼ lb Tea.
