Thomas Richards, arrived om the James T Foord from Plymouth England 7/11/1849 arriving in Port Philip Bay New South Wales Australia, Thomas died as the ship went into quarantine.
His wife Dorothy came ashore with 3 children, and lived her life in Victoria Australia, Despite extensive searching, no evidence, of death certificate or burial has been found.
Ships log states he died in quarantine,but also states 'So therefore we cannot say he arrived alive, and we cannot say he arrived dead.'I would appreciate any further information as to where to search on this.
