I had noticed a reference to a Lakeman in New South Wales, Australia on
another list and before I got around to passing on the relevant info (which
takes me some time), I had been given references to a couple of other NSW
Firstly the NSW Pilliga list had a list of unclaimed mail for 1861. It
mentions a letter for LAKEMAN, Henry at Mudgee.
Secondly, a friend doing NSW research has come across the following references;
- In a newspaper there is a reference to a R.W.M. Lakeman being present on
Aug 5 1872 at Lodge 523 Murrumbidgee held at Hay [free mason].
- And some shipping records show "1852 Depositor-John Lakeman on 23 May
1862 to bring out Edward B. Gibbs 50yrs Labourer from Kent, England. Gibb's
reference from Mr James Birch Faversham Kent. Cost 12 pounds. Ship-Protea
(unsure of spelling).
If any of the NSW researchers connect with the above names, please get back
