Richard BETTS arriv.WA 1830 from Teston,Kent

Anyone out there researching Richard Betts who came to Western Australia in 1830 on ship Rockingham with his wife Elizabeth ,nee Russell(died 9 June 1830)& children Charles, Richard,Susan,James & John (died 8 July 1830).

Richard second married Elizabeth Nixon,nee Morrow in 1837 WA & had son John.Elizabeth was a widow who arrived WA 1831 on the ship "Egyptian" with her late husband Robert Nixon & children.

Richard was baptised 15th April 1798,in the parish of Teston,Kent,the son of Joshua & Jane Bates (Betts).This information from a transcript of baptism (original was held by the Granddaughter of William Thomas Betts,son of John Betts b 1839). So those searching the Dover ,Kent area are incorrect.Have more information on Richards siblings- Ann married Henry Chapman (to Canada), Jane (married John Gilbert) , John (married 1. Sophia Everest,2nd Susannah Roots,lots of kids),James (in 1834 had 7 kids & was living near London).
