Immigration about 1849 (Age 13)
Text:

"Samuel left England from Plymouth in July 1849 but it is not sure on which ship he sailed. It could have been one of many, the - "Una", "William and Mary", "Petrel", "Lismoyne", however, none of them are recorded as having arrived in Adelaide where Samuel said he had in a letter to his father. The "Isabella Hercus" sailed from Plymouth for Adelaide on 11 July 1849 and aboard was a steerage passenger named only as Mr Plummer. The Brig "Christina" with Mr Plummer aboard but no Christian name arrived in Sydney from Port Phillip on 29 Nov 1849."

Note: I have tried searching the usual sources to find out when the Plummer children arrived in Australia, but I have not been able to find any relevant information.
Residence after 1849 (Age 13)
Address: On the gold fields
Text:

"Upon arrival in Australia, Sam went to the Gold Diggings in Victoria first. He was supposed to have become ill at this time and it is believed that this contributed to his early death."
