Hey there folks, looking for any help anyone can give me. I would like to find out as much information as possible about Thomas Hyland and his wife, Elizabeth Simmock. I know that they had at least three sons, James (b 1828), Walter and William, born in Sussex (possibly Hastings?) and that at least these three ended up in Australia.

Also, if anyone can suggest and good places on the net where I may be able to find out about shipping (immigrant) from England to Australia before about 1845, I would appreciate the info. I'm especially interested in checking out the 'LADY RAFFLES' and the 'NEPTUNE', both of which left England ~ May 1839 and arrived in Sydney in Sept 1839.

Thanks for your time, I do hope someone can help me!
