Henry Judd

Another Henry Judd is 1845 - 1926 #12597 aged 81, son of Dorothy Baldiston and Daniel Judd, died at Beaufort
Henry Judd, b. 1844 - 14 Oct 1926, born Ryde, Isle Of Wight, d. Beaufort, Victoria, Australia, came on the General Hewett 960 tons, sailed from Plymouth on 12 Aug 1848 and arrived at Botany Bay 13 Nov 1848, with no deaths and 3 births, landing 118 men, 118 women, 15 male and 19 female chn aged 7 to 14, 26 male and 37 female chn betwn 7 and 1 years. The Sydney report records the usual problems with 61 single men, 82 single women, 36 families with 100 children, and totalling 180 adult labourers

From Cornish Weekly News - a description of this ship which brought 160 male and 171 female passengers to Sydney.
THE EMIGRANT SHIP “GENERAL HEWETT” - This vessel is the property of WILLIAM TINDALL, Esq., and is chartered by her Majesty’s Colonial Land and Emigration Commissioners for the conveyance of emigrants to Sydney, New South Wales. She is a first class vessel, 361 tons per register, and possesses a most extraordinary height in the between decks, there being nine feet and six inches below the beam. The passengers were 328 in number, equal, according to the computation of the passenger act, to 276 adults.
Between decks, the entire length and breadth of the ship is occupied by the accommodations for the emigrants, a double tier of sleeping berths being placed on each side, whilst in the centre are the tables, fixed benches, &c., &c., with convenient shelves overhead, for depositing the mess tins, &c.
Three distinct apartments, separated from each other by bulk heads, are formed, the one in the after or stern end of the ship being appropriated to single females, which is separated from that of the single men, in the forward part of the ship, by the married people’s apartment in the centre. The female hospital and dispensary occupy one side of the after end of the ship, being admirably ventilated by ports and scuttles. The male hospital adjoins the apartment for the single men.
The novel method of ventilation adopted in this ship is most ingenious; it is an invention of the owner, and voluntarily fitted at his expense, evincing his anxious desire to render everything for the comfort and well-being of the people as perfect as possible. Should the hatchway be closed, as may at times be the case, from bad weather, fresh air will find its way down, through the four iron deck pipes or ventilators.
An ample supply of medical comforts is sent on board each ship, to be issued at the discretion of the surgeon-superintendent. This officer holds his appointment directly from the commissioners, and is remunerated by a fee, per head, on every emigrant safely landed in the colony – thus stimulating him to increased energy in his care of the people. The entire fitting up of these ships is placed under the management and control of the zealous and indefatigable emigration officer for the port of London, LIEUT. LEAN, R.N., who also inspects every article of the ample provisions with which they are so bountifully stored; and much credit is due to this gallant officer for the efficient manner in which his arduous duties are performed.
We cannot close our remarks, without observing that Mr. J. B. WILCOCKS, the able representation of the Emigration Commissioners at this port, caries out his duties with a perseverance and unwearied zeal, scarcely to be equaled. The “General Hewett” has sailed for her destination, and we trust that she will have a favourable voyage. Plymouth Herald.


From Official Report
Niumber of Adult Labourers, not including married females - 180, Thirty-six of this number had families, Number of labourers hired at the place of Landing 99
Number of labourers left - forwarded to depot 81 and half
Number of Ag Labourers 61, Shepherds 21, Domestic Servants male 11, female 58, Builders 7, Trades 4, Tailor 1, Dressmaker females 4, other 13 male. Remarks.
The " General Hewett" is extremely well suited for the conveyance of emigrants to this colony, and she was in an unusually cleanly state on arrival. The accommodations were unexceptionable. The provisions and water proved to be good in quality, and the people expressed themselves fully satisfied with their issue, and with the treatment they received on the voyage.
Dr. Harrison possesses considerable professional abilities, as I have been informed by competent judges who have witnessed his treatment of patients since his arrival, and his performance of the duties of Surgeon Superintendent was characterized by great kindness and attention. He reports that ht received all requisite assistance from the master and chief officer of the ship.
The immigrants were of a very good description, with the exception of some of the single females, who are believed to be of very loose character. A tailoress, as she described herself, was deformed and quite unfit for domestic service, or for hard work of any sort.
Intimacies between some of the sailors and the single females have fallen under my notice since the landing of the latter, which induce me to suspect that their intercourse during the passage was not sufficiently prevented; but I am not informed that there was any very culpable neglect of discipline in this particular.
The principal diseases, as reported by the Surgeon Superintendent, were " Diarrhoea, Dysentery, Catarrh, Fever and Constipation."

From on Monday, 20 July, 2009
On Frances's death certificate it states that she lived in WA for 2 years, I believe that this was at the turn of the century. In 1928 Frances was a widow and died of influenza.
William Miller, Frances Harriet’s father, travelled to Fremantle from Melbourne arriving on January 19th 1898. He travelled in the fore cabin of S.S. Bulimba.
Also in that section of the Bulimba on the same voyage was William's son in law, Henry Judd who lived in WA with his wife, Frances Harriet Miller.
The Bulimba ran aground after the Judds and William disembarked. The Bulimba's master was Captain G.D. Clarke, appointed to the Shipping Line in 1881 and to the vessel in 1883. The ship was powered by a steel single screw steamer. It had 3 decks, 1 of steerage and a tonnage of 2,510 tons gross, 2,210 under deck and 1,607 net. The ship was 315.8 feet long. The Bulimba had a wide variety of cargo besides passengers. On board were 25 pieces of bluestone, 7 packages of tobacco, 25 kegs of grease 160cs of mineral oil, 615 bags of flour, 267 packages of butter, 7 casks of oysters and 93 cases of eggs.

From on Sat, 21 Oct 2006
Subject: Nethaway/Judd family research
ELIZABETH:
My great great grandmother, Elizabeth Nethaway, was the sister of the Nethaway daughters (Ann, Caroline and Christiana) wives who wed Judd brothers. Elizabeth wed John H. Allen and remained in the Langtree, Devon area before moving to Laneast, Cornwall. The youngest son, Samuel Allen, of Elizabeth and John wed Sarah Geake Jenkin and they had four children (Catherine, John, Henry and Marley). Sarah died of typhoid fever in 1878 just after giving birth to Marley. A year later, Samuel immigrated to the U.S. (Texas). He sent for the two boys, but left the two girls behind in Cornwall to be raised with their grandparents. Samuel later married the lady, Phillipa Hobbs, who brought the boys over with her to Texas. The descendants of the girls still reside in Cornwall.
I have a letter which Caroline Judd wrote (which was written for her by one of her sons because of her poor eyesight) to her sister Elizabeth in 1910. Elizabeth passed away in the following year. Let me know if you would like a copy and if you have any research on the history of the Nethaway family in Devon.

From on Tuesday, 24 June, 2008
I seem to have some good success with Peter Johnson. His death certificate is attached, and identifies a further child after Ernie. Have no idea what happened to that child (but curious). From what I can gather, Ernie’s dad (my great grandfather) was the son of Peter Johnson (from Jacobstad in Sweden , now Finland ) and Ellen Standen. Ellen was the daughter of Edward Standen who appears to have come out to Tasmania as a convict in 1820. So I’ve found our convict… As for Peter, I believe that he came out in about 1852 and was a storekeeper on the goldfields. His death certificate is also attached.
Peter Johnson from Sweden died 1874 #5708 aged 51, so born c1823, may be the Peter Johnson aged 20, came Nov 1853 on the Mobile as an Unassisted Immigrant, only one of surname Johnson in that passenger list.
As a curiosity, the next called Peter Johnson are three arrived in 1863
Johnson Peter - Jan 1863 Madras (may be from America, wed 1866 to Elizabeth Williams)
Johnson Peter 21 Apr 1863 City Of Hobart II (may be from Austria, wed 1868 to Catherine Lyons)
Johnson Peter 21 Dec 1863 Hero (may be from Denmark, wed 1871 to Ellen Kennedy)
Johnson Peter 23 Aug 1869 Tararua (may be from Denmark, wed 1872 to Mary Sharples)
Johnson Peter 31 Sep 1870 Gothenburg (may be from Denmark, wed 1872 to Bridget Fulton)
