Note:

The Pre 1860 Pioneer Register - Book 1 notes that Robert Belford, his wife Eliza and their three children arrived on board the "Parkland". My research thus far has been unable to confirm this. The "Parkland" sailed from Loch Fayld, Ireland on 3 June 1838 and arrived in Port Jackson on 3 October 1838. The records indicate that it arrived with 295 emigrants.

Marion Purnell on her web site has the same family arriving on 20 August 1839 on board the "Marquis of Hastings". My research has found the record of this ship which includes the information that a Robert Belford, wife and three children travelled in steerage from Hobart. These facts agree with the information that we have on the family.

Any help in clarifying how this family arrived in Australia would be appreciated.
