To whomever can help!
I am trying to track down an elusive ancestor who came to Australia in around 1855.
Cornelius Charles Cullens married in 1856 in a small town called Beechworth in Victoria Australia. He lists his town of birth as Rotterdam Holland. His father is listed as Daniel Cullens (a Ships Captain) and his mother is listed as Cornelia Cullens nee Blaghurst (spelling may not be quite right as it is difficult to read.)
I suspect they came to Australia just as the gold rush commenced in Victoria. I have not found his or her name on any Ships passenger lists as yet. I am trying to find either a birth record for Cornelius or a marriage record for Daniel and Cornelia. On the Marriage certificate for Cornelius he lists his age as 27, which means he may have been born somewhere between 1827-1830. I am guessing the marriage recording for Daniel may be in the 1825-1830 period.
