GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM G. GRAVE (1) AND MARGARET PULFORD

Captain William George Grave (2) was born in Dec. 1802 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, and died 22 May 1873 in Melbourne, Australia.  He married Elizabeth Wade on 29 Nov. 1826 in Surrey, England.  She was born 17 Oct. 1808 in London.

On 29 Jan. 1849 the sailing ship ‘Garland Grove’ departed Plymouth, England, arriving Melbourne 10 May 1849.  Unassisted immigrants were William and Elizabeth Grave and their 9 children.

Captain William George Grave was a sea captain, leaving his family for months at a time for long voyages.  In later years he was a sailmaker and a marine surveyor.  The 1841 census for St. George in the East, Middlesex, England, listed William, 37, mariner, Elizabeth, and 7 children.  All their children settled and married in Victoria, Australia.  (R‑1)
