Hi Stuart,

Helen Lindsay's first husband was David Webster and had four children to him: John, James, Agnes, Ann.

John & James Webster were both contracted by the A.A.Co. and arrived on board the "Richard Webb" & "Aden" in 1840 & 1841 respectively.

When Robert Williamson and his brother-in-law James Lindsay were contracted by the Company they immigrated on the "Hero of Malown" in 1841. Agnes & Ann Webster are given as children on Robert which is why you have your number as five females.

The family had very close ties to the A.A.Co. Helen's nephew John Lindsay came out on the "Richard Webb" in 1840 and married his cousin Agnes Webster. Enoch Davies came on the "Artemesia" in 1849, while Thomas Tudor was on the "Vimeria" which arrived in 1852.

Robert Williamson was the Company's oldest employee and was tragically killed in the A.A.Co. Borehole aged about 77 years.

Best wishes, Ryan
