Happy New Year!
This year I have decided to take part in Amy Johnson Crow's 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks blogging prompts.
The theme for Week 1 (Jan. 1-7) is: First.
One of Amy's suggestions for this weeks theme is:
Who was the first ancestor to arrive in the country?
My first ancestors to arrive in Australia were my 3 x great-grandparents, William Fullerton and Mary (Dunne) Fullerton. They arrived at Port Phillip (Melbourne) on 30 September 1840 on the barque Himalaya.
You can read more about the Fullerton's on my Fullerton Family History blog: A Summary of the Fullerton story.
