A post on ancestry as I try to piece together the Furrill family. Sarah Ann Furrell married George Henry Bliss, a convict from Kent, England, in Yass NSW in 1850.
"Seeking descendents or knowledge of William FURRELL/FURRILL who was born in Kent, England around 1811, and married Susan Ann Percival there in 1834. They embarked for Australia on the Westminster (which left from Gravesend, Kent apparently) on 26th March 1838. They arrived in Sydney on 27 June 1838, William describing himself as a farm labourer age 26, with his wife aged 30. They brought at least one child with them, Sarah Ann FURRILL, born 1835 in Kent.
On arrival, William, Susan and whatever family they had located to Yass, NSW (a journey of 280 km!), and Susan died just a year later.
Their daughter Satah Ann FURRILL married George Bliss in 1850 in Yass (transcribed at the NSW BDM site as George BLESS and Sarah FARRELL) at St Clements Church, and two years later in 1852 William FURRELL married for a second time, to Ann Foley (transcribed in the NSW BDM site as William FARRIL and Ann FOLEY).
I've found one potential offspring born in Australia:
V18391245 23A/1839 FARRELL, STEPHEN f: WILLIAM m: SUSAN
, but none to his second marriage to William's second marriage, nor have I uncovered the date/location of William's death."
