Isaac Board, his Wife Anne and child Ellen aged 1, are on the Assisted Immigration Passenger List for New South Wales, Australia 1 Nov 1856.

Isaac Board is my Gt Grandmother's half brother.

Any surviving relatives still living in Australia?

Hi Teresa

The NSW/BMD (on-line) shows Isaac & Ann/e had 2 more chn:
Frederick Johnson K McK Board 1858 and Victoria A Board 1865.

Frederick J & K(C)atherine May Board had a son Douglas Graham Board 1907 and Nancy E Board in 1911 both born Lismore NSW.

Katherine May Board died in 1968 age 88yrs at Murwillumbah
Son ...Douglas Graham Board died 1969

Nancy Elizabeth Alecia Board married Paul William Barnett 1937

The 'NSW State Library' has an 'Ask a Librarian' service ...they could check newspaper death notices i.e.Katherine 1968 and Douglas Graham Board 1969... and they also check electoral rolls.

'Ryerson's Index' shows:
Frederick Johns(t)on Board d 22/11/1942 'late of Lismore' ...notices in 'Northern Star' (Lismore)

Nancy Barnett (nee Board) d 12/7/2001 age 90 'late of Kingscliff'
notice/s in 'Northern Star' (Lismore) 25/7/2001
(her husband)
Paul William Barnett d 16/3/2008 age 96yrs 'late of Nerang formerly of Kingscliff' ....notice in 'Northern Star' (Lismore).
Probate Notice shows him 'late of Melody Park Retirement Village' Nerang QLD. Notice in 'Gold Coast Bulletin' 19/5/2008

'Ryerson's do 'look-ups' of these newspaper notices ....hopefully you will learn of more family descendants.

The Frederick Johnston BOARD who died in 1942 had different parents (Wm & Elizabeth).

I think Frederick son of Isaac died in 1900. Possible death for mother Anne in 1891. No sign of Isaac.
