Seeking info on William Orchard from Leicester
Posted by: Tanya (ID *****1446) Date: July 11, 2006 at 21:35:22

I am a descendant of William Orchard born circa 1812, possibly in Leicester. He married Catherine Robertson (born 1931, Scotland) in Stirling, Scotland 3rd July,1848 before coming to Australia on the Flora McDonald from Liverpool England in 1852. Their first child John was born en route to Portland Victoria. Other children were Robert William, Jessie Eliza, Charles, Catherine Mary, Emma, William, James Benjamin, and Minnie Rosetta. William died 30th Nov 1881 in Adelaide, South Australia and Catherine died 25th August 1875 at Red Camp (Glenburnie), South Australia. Catherine's father is listed as Bengemen. Any info on Catherine and her family in Scotland would be very welcome.
I am willing to share any info I have on my Australian family but have reached a HUGE roadblock in finding any info on my family in England. If you have information on the Orchards of Australia or the ancestry of William that would be awesome.
