Dear Elizabeth,
The John Trigg who married Sarah Linsdale is the son of John Trigg and Susan nee (Mussell/Mursel/ Mussel), he also had 4 siblings who came to Victoria.
Joseph Trigg arrived on board the Callioppe in 1853, with his wife and daughter.
Henry Trigg arrived on board the Black Eagle in 1857 with his wife and 1 child, also on board was 2 of his sisters
Martha Wright nee Trigg and her husband William and another unmarried sister Sarah Trigg.
My husband is a descendant of Joseph Trigg and one of his cousins is a descendant of Joseph Trigg and Ann Trigg who married Robert McKenzie, Ann’s father is William Trigg and mother is Rebecca Mansfield. Ann was born in Warrnambool.
Our belief is that the Trigg families are related but have not found a connection it will be back in Essex, think early Baptisms would need to be found to find any relationship. Interesting that they all arrived within 5 years and all went to the Western District/Geelong area to begin with.
Joseph only ever had one child Elizabeth Jane Trigg who married a Green and later married a McNeal, this is the surname she is buried under.
Loved your Family page, we have been working on my husbands Trigg’s for about 10 years.
Joseph and his wife are buried at Colac, Vic, along with his son-in-law William Green.
Kind regards, Jenni Green

From on Wednesday, 20 November 2013
: Hi Elizabeth,
My name is Glenys Williamson and I am distantly related to the John and Sarah Trigg family via Sarah Linsdell (Linsdale). Enjoying your website but I think there is a little mistake with the children of William Trigg and Jane Gaunt. I believe they only had 4 children - William, Frederick, Joseph John and an unnamed male.
The rest of the children you have listed for them, I think, belong to another William Trigg and his wife Jane Gaul. This couple married in 1886 and lived most of their lives in an around Melbourne.
Hope this makes sense to you. Yours sincerely, Glenys
Thankyou for your correction

Marriage 17 April 1862, by rites of Wesleyan Church, Warrnambool, John Ware of Sunderland, and now in Melbourne, aged 40, son of Jane Brainsly and John Ware, to Maria Trigg of Haydon, Essex, and now in Warrnambool, aged 23, dau of Rebecca Manson and William Trigg, Witnesses Joel Trigg and Susan Trigg
Thankyou also for - Maria Ware nee Trigg, died in Qld 1920/C4002, daughter of Rebekah and William Trigg, born England aged 82 years
John Ware is identified as 1820 - 1904, son of Jane Brainsley and John Ware of Sunderland, England
From on Monday, 3 December 2012
Baptism on 14 May 1820 at St. Peter's, Anglican, Monkwearmouth: John Ware, of Monkwearmouth Shore, born 13-Feb 1820, son of John (Excise Officer) & Jane Ware (She was Jane Brainsley). According to Durham records there were also two sisters born there, Elizabeth and Jane. Then there was a brother William born in Ireland, who appears on the 1841 census as a 9 year old with his father John Ware (father of John Ware who married Maria Trigg). That John Ware was an Excise Officer and a widower after Jane died in 1838. None of these migrated to Australia. Elizabeth and Jane were Governess/School Teachers and although they married, they had no children. William became an Inland Revenue Officer.
Interestingly the names of John's and Maria's eldest daughter were Jane Elizabeth, and their eldest son was William.
William's eldest child was a son named John and he had daughters named Elizabeth and Eleanor Jane.
John Ware's registration as a Merchant Seaman is dated 1860 and includes those exact details for his birth.
