Comment

my great great grandfather was on the Trusty. Came using a false name Charles Trout. His real name was Charles St Julian

My Great Great Grandmother, Jane Jones, was a 19 year old Housemaid which she made her journey to Adelaide on the "Trusty" arriving in Port Adelaide, on 15th May, 1838. Shortly after her arrival, she met William Joseph Strummy and they were married in Holy Trinity Church, Adelaide in September, 1838. In 1839 their daughter was born, and by 1840, Adelaide was in the grips of a severe drought. With courage in both hands, they set sail on the "New Holland" for Sydney and then on to Paterson where they settled. They fulfilled their dreams by buying a small property in the St Clair area and raised 9 children.
