      BIOGRAPHY:

      Out of the family home by the 1851 Census.

      The witnesses for Charles' wedding were Richard Pennell and Rachel Crew. "The ceremony was performed by Curate George Normas.
      They immigrated to Australia in 1859, in a small sailing ship called the GLENTANNA. They sailed from the West India Docks, London, on February 4, 1859, and went non stop to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
      Charles and Susan immigrated as REMITTANCE MIGRANTS, which meant they were sponsored by a "natural born or naturalised person" residing in Queensland, who obtained a passage warrant from the Government ON PAYMENT OF THE REQUIRED AMOUNT. THis was then forwarded to the friend or relative in Europe. On presentation of the warrant, the gov't rep. in Europe would then arrange a passage for the immigrant.
      They arrived at Moreton Bay, July 7, 1859; a 153 day trip. The GLENTANNA was 610 tons, built in Aberdeen in 1842 and was navigated by Captain Wilson. After the ship anchored, the passengers were taken by small paddleboat steamer up the Brisbane River to a small wharf in South Brisbane, which adjoins Kangaroo Point. The only Hotel in South Brisbane was the Lord Raglan.
      Kangaroo Point was covered with thick bush in the midst of which was a large aborigine camp. There was also a building to receive new settlers and Charles, Susan and Susan's brother, William Henry Crew, were accommodated in this building from the Thursday to the following Monday awaiting the arrival of relatives.
      From the town of Limestone (now Ipswich), 24 miles away, came John Edward and Marie Bradfield, Susan's sister, who had emigrated to Australia two years earlier. When the Bradfield's arrived, John and Charles went to the Lord Raglan Hotel to finish a game of Quoits they had commenced the day the Bradfield had left London in 1859.
      The party left Kangaroo Point on the Monday, about July 21, for Limestone. The women went by small steamer and the men, wanted to see the land, walked the distance. However Charles was a "real Londoner" and was never very happy about leaving England. He had been influenced by John Bradfield.
      After a few weeks stay in Moreton Bay, the GLENTANNER ship sailed for Callard, Peru South America and was not heard of again.
      Charles died of chronic Bright's disease, Dropsy, and cardiac failure. He 5'11", had light blue eyes and dark hair. He did not like farming.
