Hi Rick,

There seems to be something very strange about what this family did in relation to travelling to and from Australia.

I believe that William b1790 (or 1809 on some records) was the brother of one of my ancestors.

Susannah and William are back in England living in Chelsea on the 1851 Census.

This is the extraction:

41 Queen St Chelsea

Wm Seabrook abt 1795 Devonport Head
Susanah Seabrook abt 1802 Devonport Wife
Charlotte Seabrook abt 1831 Van D Land Daughter
Ewdo Seabrook abt 1844 Guildford, Surrey, England Son
Martha Seabrook abt 1838 Guildford, Surrey, England Daughter
Saml Seabrook abt 1840 Guildford, Surrey, England Son
Thos Seabrook abt 1835 Guildford, Surrey, England Son

On the 1861 Census some of the informatio differs - his birth location and DOB are different and Susan has also changed her DOB.

42 Queen St Chelsea.

Susan Seabrook abt 1811 Devonport Wife View Record William Seabrook abt 1809 Guilford, Surrey, England Head Eliza Seabrook abt 1841 Chelsea, Middlesex, England Daughter
Samuel Seabrook abt 1838 Guilford, Surrey, England Son

I cannot find the family at all on the 1841 census.

I am still trying to confirm a definite link between William Seabrook and my John Seabrook b1805 Stoke nr Guildford Surrey. John's father was Thomas Seabrook (Saybrook), I do not know where he was born but he died in 1815 at age 46 so he was born abt 1769, which would also make him old enough to be the father of William regardless of whether William as born in 1790 or 1795 or 1809.

This is starting to look like a very interesting family. The other information my mother told me was that the Seabrooks were also supposed to have an Irish link.
