Hi Stuart,

Helen Lindsay's first husband was David Webster and had four children to him: John, James, Agnes, Ann.

John & James Webster were both contracted by the A.A.Co. and arrived on board the "Richard Webb" & "Aden" in 1840 & 1841 respectively.

When Robert Williamson and his brother-in-law James Lindsay were contracted by the Company they immigrated on the "Hero of Malown" in 1841. Agnes & Ann Webster are given as children on Robert which is why you have your number as five females.

The family had very close ties to the A.A.Co. Helen's nephew John Lindsay came out on the "Richard Webb" in 1840 and married his cousin Agnes Webster. Enoch Davies came on the "Artemesia" in 1849, while Thomas Tudor was on the "Vimeria" which arrived in 1852.

Robert Williamson was the Company's oldest employee and was tragically killed in the A.A.Co. Borehole aged about 77 years.

Best wishes, Ryan

Immigration November 21, 1841 (Age 14)
Note:

On board the "Hero of Malown" with her sister Agnes and her Mother and her second husband, Robert Williamson and their five children.

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.
