I am looking for any relatives of my Grandfather Joshua Hort. He was born in Stepney, London, England on 25th January, 1845. His father was John Kempton Hort and his mother was Esther Bartlett, daughter of Joshua Bartlett. Joshua Hort was a Captain in the British East India Company and spent many working years in sailing ships. He married Amelia in 1873 in London and a daughter Maud Amelia was born in 1874. His wife died in 1913 and he married my Grandmother, Frances Meadows in Sydney, Australia, in the same year. He had lived in Sydney since approximately the late 1880's or early 1900's where he had met Frances, 30 years his junior,and they had six children, four sons and two daughters, before they married. My Father Samuel was one of the sons. Joshua was obviously not free to marry before 1913 until his first wife Amelia died. I would really like to hear from any relatives of Joshua who know about his life in England before he came to Australia. I believe that he also had a brother John and sisters Maria and Mathilda.
