    Notes 
    • On passenger list going to New South Wales in 1883 - next person listed was a Charles Hunt - was he a friend / relative? The nation (sic) George was 'of' was shown as "Kent", while that of Charles was "Sydney". Charles year of birth was shown as 1862 - this matches a Charles born in Bredgar, and related to Goathams though not to George, but he could well have been known to him.
