[TSL] Barque Sarah..London/Plymouth..Port Phillip Bay, Australia..1842.

I would like to find out as much as possible about this departure and
arrival, and also hope to see the full complement of passengers onboard
including crew. I believe that one of my family members onboard (Mary
Emmerson) had a marriage proposal from the third mate but the Captain
wouldn't allow him to leave the ship so they had to end their relationship.
I haven't been able to trace Mary in Australia and wonder if she may have
returned to find her 'man'. This family all came from Collon, County Louth
in Ireland as did the Greene's who employed them. They all settled in
Melbourne and for some time were employed by the Greene family in various
roles. John and Jane are my 3xG/Grandparents.

Two index lists below...1st is a copy of just my family who were onboard and
the 2nd is the passenger list I took them from which I am sure is incomplete
at it does not mention the Greene family who chartered the ship, I would
like if possible to have that information also.

Regards 

Julie McBride

John Emmerson/Emerson, with his wife Jane Emmerson and seven of their
children left Plymouth on the 8th of August 1842 and travelled on the Barque
'Sarah", a converted convict ship which had been chartered by William
Pomeroy Greene to bring his family and servants and various livestock
(thoroughbreds) to Australia for a new beginning after his retirement from
the Navy. John Henry Emmerson was employed by W.P.Greene as his Carpenter,
as was his son George also, to build his home in Australia. Also onboard the
ship was a prefabricated kit home which W.P.Greene intended to be his new
home, The Emerson's (Carpenters) were to erect this home once they were
settled. From what I understand, certain original passengers were unable to
make the trip and opted out at a late stage and so were replaced by other
people.
