  • Notes 
    • According the the book "Lonely Graves of Western Australia and Burials at Sea" he arrived in WA in 1830 with his first wife and 4 children on the ship "Rockingham". The youngest child was an infant born on the 4 month voyage out. As they were coming ashore the little boat capsized in rough surf and all were thrown into the water. Elizabeth died of the wetting and exposure and dysentery. Their son John died on the 8th July 1830.
