On board the "Hero of Malown" with her parents and six siblings.

The "Hero of Malown" sailed from London on 14 July 1841, under the command of Captain Christian Jackson. The vessel was under charter to the Australian Agricultural Company, and most of the passengers were contracted to work for the AA Co. The Company held the monopoly to the great coal seams under their new settlement at Newcastle, and had contracted these Fifeshire miners to work their holdings. Experienced miners from the parish of Cupar had been employed by the AA Co. agent Robert Taylor. The vessel arrived at Port Jackson (Sydney) on 21 November 1841, with 33 passengers, all coal miners and their families.

Citation details: 7153/1877 WILLIAMSON ROBERT AGE 76 YEARS DIED NEWCASTLE NEWCASTLE
Note:

The following account of the accident was given by James Reid at the inquest held at the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel, The Junction, before the District Coroner:

"I had been gone about five minutes when I heard the deceased shouting. I immediately ran to his assistance, and found him in his bord, lying on his face with a huge lump of coal lying across his body; he seemed to have been filling a skip at the time the coal fell; I spoke to the deceased, but got no answer; David Griffiths, who followed me into the deceased bord, helped me to extricate the deceased by removing the coal from off him; he was then very weak and unable to speak; we then removed him to the top of the pit, but he died whilst we were putting him into the skip to remove him ..."

The Newcastle Morning Herald of 17 March 1877 remarked that Robert Williamson "was about seventy-seven years of age, one of the A.A. Company's oldest servants ... many of the family are now occupying respectable positions in the city, and he has a large connection throughout the district."
