Primary events

Secondary circumstances

  • (Witness) EmigratAU: Hannah 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.4

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: A Hannah BALL married John WHELAND in 1840 in Adelaide. He was from Bristol, and she was from Rainham. John's wife appears as Lucy Ann in all further records, including her death in 1847 in Rivoli Bay. John married again in the same church as a widower in 1847. There is no birth of a Lucy Ann BALL in Rainham..6
  • Research note 02: John, Hannah's/Lucy's husband, was the publican of the Tasmanian in Hindley Street, Adelaide in 1839. In the same year he donated £1 towards the building of a Presbyterian Church.7
