  • Notes 
    • Emma was an East London girl, born to a father who was a Tailor. She married William - also from East London - who was a Merchant Seaman when she was 26. She followed her husband to Australia after the birth of her daughter, because her husband, now a captain of passenger steamers, got a job running boats along the coast there. Emma stayed in New South Wales in a suburb of Sydney after her husband died quite young, and saw her one daughter marry before dying at the age of 53.
