  • Notes 
    • From Sue Wragg:

      I am seeking information about my gggrandfather, Rev William Jarrett b. 1810 in London, England, ordained a Congregational minister in 1832.

      He arrived in Sydney Australia in 1833 where he married Mary Ann Russell in 1834. He worked at churches in Sydney, Hobart and different parts of Melbourne, as well as running small schools and apparently editing The Argus newspaper in Melbourne for a time.

      He left Melbourne for England in 1867, went to a charge in Galway, Ireland for about 12 months before sailing from Liverpool for America in 1868.

      In 1869 he was known to have been at a church in the northern part of Philadelphia. He severed his connection with this church in 1871 and was heard of from Hampton Virginia, 1872-4.

      He is said to have died on 18 Feb 1883, but where? His wife died in East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 19 Jun 1884.

      I would greatly appreciate any further information about this man, especially his American years, and confirmation of his date of death and place would be wonderful.
