Immigrationyes

Note: There is a record of a Francis Sellars being a passenger on board the "Royal Charter" departing Liverpool about 21 May 1859 and bound for Sydney. Francis was listed as being 24 years of age and a "smith" as occupation. His age does not correlate with his age inscibed on his headstone. However, his age in the 1851 England Census is closer to this age. Also his occupation (and that of his Father, Francis), is shown as "moulder at iron works". This correlates to his occupation as "smith" on the ship documents.
