Primary events

Secondary circumstances

  • (Witness) EmigratAU: Amos 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

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: Amos is listed on the passenger list, but no mention of him at all in Australia. Others have him as having died in Kent in 1836..
