John and Sarah Fisk


From on Monday, 4 March 2013
His name was actually JOHN Fisk, born 10 March 1794 in Wacton, Norfolk, England, son of John Fisk and Elizabeth Barrett. He married Sarah Lush in Hobart, Tasmania in c1834. William Job, the youngest of their seven children, was born 6 April 1851 and baptised 17 August 1851 in Melbourne. He married Margary McGillivray in 1872 and died on 17 July 1939 in Yea, Victoria. His father's name in the Victorian BDM Index is incorrect, it's not James, it's John.

Your comment.. "Sarah could be Sarah Fisk died 1878 #3898 aged 64, daughter of Sarah and unknown Lush of Perthshire, Scotland"
Yes she died on 14 February 1878 in Yea, Victoria. However, Sarah was born Sarah Lush to Sylvester Lush, a convict transported on the Calcutta to Hobart in 1803 (the first transport of convicts and settlers in Hobart), and Ann Burrows, daughter of Richard Cornelius Burrows, a Second Fleet convict, and Elizabeth Cole, a First Fleet convict (born in Devon, there was also another Elizabeth Cole, from London, on the First Fleet). Sylvester came from Gillingham in Dorset. He stole some sheep, was sentenced to death, then commuted to a life sentence in Australia.

John, known as James Fisk 1793 - 1877 aged 84, and Sarah lived at Flemington, Melbourne when their only child registered in Victoria, was baptised 1851 at St James Church of England, Melbourne.
Sarah is Sarah Fisk 1814 - 1878 #3898 aged 64, daughter of Sarah and unknown Lush born in Tasmania
