James Baldock (1817-1896) who died in Jeparit, Victoria, is my 2nd great grandfather spring from the union of my grandparents Archibald Guest (1866-1932) and Florence Matilda Logan (1890-1968). James is my grandmother's maternal grandfather. Sarah, who is also one of South Australia's early Colony pioneers, is James mother and my 3rd great grandmother. They migrated from Frant Sussex aboard the Orissa to Adelaide disembarking in March, 1840. William, the third Baldock passenger is James elder brother, also the mature aged son of Sarah.
