Primary events

Secondary circumstances

  • (Witness) EmigratAU: Thomas Henry Ball was with Thomas Cannum Ball and Elizabeth Jane Lester when they emigrated to Australia on 4 December 1837 from England; The Port they arrived at was Adelaide. This ship was very small, much smaller than those ships in the first fleet, so there is a good chance this was a privately arranged journey and records may exist in UK archives.3

Census details

Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): In 1852 Tomas BALL married Catherine Alice ROYAL in Kensington, South Au. Then as a widower same man (?) married Charlotte KING 1855 as a widower.

Then, just to confuse things further a child named Thomas BALL was born to George and Elizabeth jane nee PERKINS in 1857. Thomas died as an infant.

And we have not finished yet - In 1863 an Elizabeth Jane was born to Thomas and Charlotte nee KING. This may be complicated a lttle by the fact that Thomas and George's mother was also named Elizabeth Jane..10

His death was commemorated by an obituary in the Ballarat newspapers in April 1915 in The Chronicle (South Australia) Newspaper, Victoria, Australia, Aged 87. He arrived in South Australia in 1837 on the Lady Emma. A Daughter is Mrs LAWSON.11
