John and Augusta Smith

From , Mary Augusta Smith (not Augusta Mary as you have her listed) married 5th November 1854 to Thomas Craig. Mary Augusta was the sister of my William Smith who married 1868 to Mary Hain.
Mary was born in 1836 in Nafferton, Yorkshire and was baptised 22nd December 1836 in Nafferton. Mary & William's parents were John Smith born 25 Jul 1813 in Great Kelk, Yorkshire and Augusta Hinds/Hind/Hines born 16 Nov 1813 in Beeford Yorkshire and appear to had 11 children born.
Augusta brought her surviving children to join John in Geelong. The Australia came Nov 1853 with Assisted British Immigrants Augusta Smith aged 39, Mary Smith 17 (who wed Thomas Craig), Susan Smith 12, Anne Smith aged 9, William Smith 4 and Abraham Smith 2
Also on the Australia are William Smith 34, Helen Smith 35,

Augusta departed Liverpool with the children on 22nd August 1853 on the "Australia", arriving in Melbourne on the 18th November 1853. On the 29th, she proceeded to Geelong to join John. (She was described as a Servant in the Shipping Lists.) John Smith apparently owned the first grocers in Geelong and Richard & Grace Hain the first woodyard. Their last child lived 4 months, Augusta Sophia Smith b: 8 Sep 1859 in Rokewood, Victoria, Australia
John and Augusta Smith moved with their family up to the goldfields around Ballarat and eventually settled in Corindhap where they were instrumental in the establishment of the first Methodist Church building in nearby Rokewood.

William Ferry Smith


From on Sunday, 11 October, 2009

I was interested to read today about Catherine Cahill, who I believe, arrived on either the Mindoro or Black Eagle in 1857. Her brother Patrick married Elizabeth Wilson also lived in Buninyong.
I have been tracing the Butler family from Tullowbrin Tullabrin, Co. Kilkenny for many years. Bridget Cahill, Catherine's sister, arrived in Portland in October, 1853 aboard the Oithona with her husband, Patrick Butler, and inlaws, John and Ann Butler, and two other couples, Brennans and Curtis, from around Kilfarney, Ballyfoyle, Kilkenny and probably a cousin to the Cahills, Michael Bergin, and his wife. The two Butlers and Brennan and Curtis married with three days of each other in May 1853, before departing for Australia.
The two Butler couples and their friends originally worked at Harrow on a large property there until they reappeared in baptism records in Warrnambool in Feb. 1854. Later the same year (most of )the Butlers appeared in Ballarat where they met up with Patrick Butler's sister (s) and eventually brother. John butler had died. The Butlers and Brennans both settles in Warrenheip to the east of Ballarat where they owned property. The Butlers were not alone there were many other residents of Warrenheip and Buninyong from the same region of Ireland.
