South Australian Register Friday 29 April 1853
Thursday April 28th, 1853:-the barque Marshall Bennett, 363 tons, Harris, Master, from Plymouth, 23rd December, with the following Government Emigrants.—4th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1853 ; three births and seventeen+ deaths on the passage, W.F. Armstrong, surgeon-superintendent.

Sydney Shipping Gazette 21 May 1853 p.153: The Marshall Bennett.— This barque has arrived here under very trying circumstances. The day after she left Plymouth a heavy gale from the westward carried away three topsails. Fine weather supervened till abreast of Tristan d'Acunha, when circumstamces occasioned a survey of the hold, and it was found that seven water casks had leaked out.
This discovery determined Captain Harris to put in to the Cape. This was on Saturday, the 19th March, and on the 21st the Marshall Bennett departed thence with the requisite fresh provisions and water. On the 6th April, the ship was found to be making more water than usual, and on inspection of the fore-hold, it was perceived there was water (as much as four feet,) "above the skin." The crew and passengers engaged in working the pumps and the ship was kept before the wind under easy sail until night. The combined efforts of crew and passengers were systematically employed during the night, but in the morning it was found that the water had increased about a foot.
On making this discovery, at daylight, a foresail was got over the bows and passed under the ship's bottom, which operation caused the influx of water to decrease so much that in two hours and a half the pumps "sucked." The fore-hold was then cleared away and then "the skin" cut through, when the leak was traced to the "fore foot," which was caulked with oakum so successfully that the working of the pumps was reduced to a five minutes' spell in two hours." The passengers voluntarily proposed to be divided into three watches, and the progress of the ship under sail was resumed with confidence. The leak, however, gradually increased until the 23rd instant, when it became so serious that the ship was "hove to." A sail, thrummed with oakum, and successfully applied to the bottom, again reduced the leak very considerably, and another caulking within succeeded so well that the ship made very little water.
On the 24th April, another heavy gale from the N.W. was encountered, and it became neccessary to "heave to" again under close-reefed topsails. it was then discovered that the leak had broken out afresh. Another kind of caulking (with white lead and oakum) was then resorted to, with a pressure contrived by means of shot and chain. This contrivance was so far successful that the pumping was reduced to four minutes' spell in two hours, a state of things which continued up to the hour at which our report was penned. The greatest commendation is due to the captain, crew, and passengers, to whose united exertions (under Divine Providence) may be attributed an almost miraculous preservation.—Adelaide Register

From on Thursday, 17 September, 2009

Elizabeth, I have been researching the Lethlean family and there are two Thomas Henry Lethleans from Cornwall about the same age and both ended up in central Victoria. Your Lethlean/Lobb contribution I believe is in error in that these 2 gentlemen have been mixed up. They are related as one is the nephew of the other. I have attached my record of what is I believe the correct match up. The Thomas Henry’s concerned are on pages 5 and 20 of the attached file.

A Thomas Lathlean aged 19 and Alexander Lathlean aged 27 arrived in Victoria in July 1857 on the "Sir William Eyre". This is likely to be Thomas Henry and his brother Alexander Eustace Lethlean.
Thomas moved to Bendigo where he worked as an engineer at one of the larger mines.
The marriages for Thomas Henry -
- Sarah Lobb in 1866 - marriage officially registered in Victoria between Thomas Henry Lethlean, bachelor, age 27, miner, and Sarah Lobb, widowed in 1866, age 30, mother of 4 living and 5 dead children, both normally resident in Maryborough, Victoria. The service was at St Johns Church, LaTrobe St, Melbourne. Sarah was born Sarah Rosewarne.
- Mary Jane Price in 1876 - marriage officially registered in Victoria - from which came 9 offspring.

If you want any further information on the family, please let me know. Regards, Kevin Lethlean

This reconstruction began with the two surnames Lobb and Rosewarn for Mary's parents. The result shows she was first called Eliza, also that both her parents died young.
