I am researching the Roberts Family in South Australia.

Any information relating to Robert Roberts who emigrated to SA in 1854 with his wife Lydia, 4yo son Josiah and 1yo son William aboard the barque 'Emigrant' will be much appreciated.

There appears to be no subsequent children born to Robert Roberts and Lydia in SA.

Mike, Thank you for this information.

I had considered this couple but wasn't able to find either a marriage that matched on 'FreeBMD' or any record of children Josiah or William born to them.

Thank you all the same

Mike, I'm happy to say I have now found that Lydia Thorpe IS the name that I have been looking for.

Thank you again for taking the trouble to look-up the two names.
