Re: West Family.... Warwickshire to Australia

Hi Anne,

I have access to the "Index to Assisted Immigrants Arriving Queensland" and have found the following. They all appear to be listed bar one - Thomas.

These WEST's arrived in Brisbane on board the "Darling Downs" on 5th November 1874.

Joseph ... aged 39 (this age differs too)
Ellen ... aged 39
Elizabeth ... aged 19
William ... aged 18
James ... aged 17
Sarah ... aged 15
Joseph ... aged 13
Ellen ... aged 12

However, no young Thomas. Could he have died before they came to Australia ?

There were other WEST's on the same voyage ...

Charles ... aged 28
Mary A. ... aged 29
Eliza ... aged 8
Emma ... aged 6
Charles ... aged 2
Arthur ... aged 1
Charlotte ... Inf
Samuel ... Inf

I have grouped these together as a family purely because they were not names you gave. But, perhaps they are part of your family.

Hope this helps.

Brisbane, Australia
