Hello Elizabeth,
I had just stumbled on your website and thought I might be able to tell you a bit more about the Gallienne family.
Nicholas Gallienne 5th who came out to South Australia aboard the Trafalgar in 1850 is my Great Great Grandfather I believe. He and his family departed Plymouth aboard the Trafalgar 26 Dec 1849.
I was also able to find the family on an 1841 Census for Guernsey.
Louisa Gallienne did not die. She was aboard the Trafalgar.
The names I have on board were:
Nicholas, Rachel, Marie, Frederick, Sophia, Louisa, Lucrece, Elise who died at Sea aged 3, on the voyage on 27 February 1850.

Subject: Re: Gallienne Family - Louisa Gallienne Hello Elizabeth, Thank you for your reply. I have included here the photo that I believe is of Lousa Gallienne. Also here is a list of the births of Louisa's children taken from official SA records (Diggers SA Births 1842-1906). You will also see on the list the births of two of Thomas Junior and Alice Louisa Pallot's children. It would seem young Thomas married his cousin. Also notice the varied spellings of Gallienne.
The only information I have on the Children born outside SA are from the Waanyarra site.
I was fascinated with the story of the gold discovery. A SA Govt Gazette of the Era (1855) shows unclaimed mail for Nich so this more or less dates when they went overland. It seems perhaps they did well out of gold and also Thomas as he was able to buy land near Mt Gambier.
I wonder if Nicholas and Rachels' graves are still to be seen. If so I might make the trek across from WA to visit them and also Thomas and Louisa's in SA. I would also like to ride the Dunolly cycle track tour.
Clarice Millowick is unfortunately no longer alive but her husband, in his eighties, was going to try to find what information he could for us. We've not heard back yet but he telephoned my sister late last year.
With reference to the Tarnagulla book where might I find a copy ? or just the appropriate pages I guess.
I would love to get a copy of the photos of Nicholas and Harriet.
Best wishes,
John Lewis
