Hi
I was interested in your website because of the Thorogood name and particularly Emily who married Henry James Hince as they're my grt grt grandparents.
I have to let you know that Emily is not the daughter of Joseph Thorogood but rather James and Amelia nee Nunn who arrived originally in Perth in 1853 aboard the Sabrina, James died on board before making it to Aust. Emily was born abt 1847 in Great Wilbraham, Cambridge, England. the family moved to Victoria. I have marriage certs as sources. Hope this helps and please feel free to contact me for any details thanks

John Thurgood

From on Tuesday, 9 September, 2008
Hello again Elizabeth,
Thank you for the last email and all the sites for me to tap into but... you have the wrong John Thurgood for our line.
John Thurgood Born 1827 in Bishops Stortford
He was the son of Lawrence Thurgood and Rebecca Mountford.
He died 1902 in Stawell.
Cemetery records confirm this. I have also sent for the marriage certificate to see what other info is on it, Now just to make it even more difficult Margaret seems to think they came to S A first before settling in Vic. So as far as the ship he arrived on I'm now back to square one, but I'll keep plugging away have had a bit of help with a lady I know that is keen on finding ancestors.
I have also made contact in Essex with another Thurgood researcher and he found John in 1841 and 1851 census but nothing later
Once again thanks I do find your site really interesting reading .
