Seeking information on (the family of) Mary FORBES (born: 1801 Scotland died: 14 August 1884 New Zealand)
She arrives in Launceston 1855 (Oct, SHIP: James Baines) with JOHN (1823-1829), JANE (1839 - ?) and ROBERT (1843 - ?)
[Later Daughter Ellen (married to james PICKRELL) and her family join her in Launceston]
I am trying to trace JANE (who i think moves to Geelong, Australia) and ROBERT (who i think moves to New Zealand but it could be another son...no idea)
There are two other children: Margaret Hay and Joseph who may have died (or stayed in England) or gone else where.
Also very much interested in the reasons for travelling from Launceston (tasmania) and New Zealand.
