Frome Emigrants to Victoria, 1839-54

                                                                  

Emigrants from Frome, kindly extracted by Philip Candy from Florence Chuk’s ‘The Somerset Years: Government Assisted Emigrants from Somerset and Bristol who Arrived in Port Phillip Victoria, 1839-1854’.

 

Phil says that the book “contains the names of hundreds of individuals and families from all over Somerset. It is much more than a list, as it contains whatever information the researcher could find about each emigrant’s ancestry and descendants (usually limited to children) in Victoria.” Many of the entries lack a parish, so there could well be others from Frome.
