You would mean 1851. To the best of our knowledge Joseph Gell was a convict in Tas, In the 1830's. Came to Victoria after that. He was a talior by trade.
One of his son's ? was John William, Who selected the land for what is known as Paradise Valley, in Gippsland Victoria in 1884, Gell's are still there today.
