Westhead

On 5 February 1850 John Westhead, a brewer of Great Crosby, near Liverpool in Lancashire, breathed his last. On 21 April, just over two months later, a wedding took place at St Patrick's chapel, Toxteth Park, Liverpool, when John's son, Thomas took as his bride Jane Davies, a Welsh lass from Denbighshire. Within a week, the newly-weds were sailing aboard the Argyle for Melbourne, Australia, no doubt grateful that a small inheritance from the late brewer's estate enabled them to pay the fare. (Two years later, in August 1852 cousins Richard Westhead and Mary Ormeshire followed them aboard the Fanny.)
Thomas and Jane had been in Melbourne for less than a year when the cry of "GOLD!" sent thousands scrambling northwards. The earth of the newly-separated colony, Victoria, offered dreams of a golden Utopia. Thomas and Jane Westhead joined the throng and trekked with their small son to Bendigo Creek, where they remained for the rest of their lives. Their family grew up as Bendigo itself was growing from a camp to a city - though riches, for them, remained elusive.
The story is told more fully in Jan Dobb's recently published book "From Lancashire to Bendigo - a Westhead Family History".
