On the Amelia Thompson

Five years before the emigrant voyage of the James Baines, another Yeo family from Swimbridge emigrated to Australia. Their descendants have been documented by Jim Fairweather and others.

Roger Yeo, his wife Maria (née Pinsent) and several of their children emigrated on the SS Amelia Thompson, arriving at Sydney on 27 September 1839. See Roger Yeo and Maria Pinsent.
