David Batty Kelly

Fried Heinr Landwehr aged 25 came Jan 1855 on the Acmel. Is he a relative?

From on Thu, 01 Feb 2007

My great grandmother, Mary Louisa Wells, (Polly) was the second child of Henry Cadby Wells and Hannah Hill, christened at St James CofE Melbourne in 1841. The first child was born and died on the ship (Andromache) on the way out to Australia. I understand that she was to be called Polly (possibly a contraction of Margaret) and that Mary Luisa was dubbed Polly although registered differently.

Richard Sumerton Games and Annie nee Brown were my mother's grandparents.

See my pages Andromache for ship voyage. and Henry Cadby Wells for early notes.
See The Laudehr Family, and The Wells Family for this family's story.
