    Notes 
    • 1870 Emigrated with her mother from England to Australia
      1890 Emigrated from Australia to USA with her husband and family [This date has to be after 1897 when the last child was born in Brisbane. Also, not all the children emigrated suggesting they were of an age when they could look after themselves.]

      MHP (her daughter) writes [extract from notes under Ann Phillis (Knight) Hougham] :-

      "During the waiting period a friend of Fred's had taken a liking for the youngest sister and when the ship was due begged her to remain and be his wife. She would not remain.

      "The Darling Downs was lifting anchor, tie ropes all untied, sailors unfurling sails, getting a foot or so from her moorings, when a young man with suitcase in hand leaped aboard. John William Hurley joined the Hougham family on their return trip around Cape Colony. So Africa to England. The return trips were not emigrants, very few passengers. There is nothing more prettier or more stately than a ship in full white sail leaving or entering port unless a graceful white swan gliding along admiring its reflection in the water. The group aboard the ship were happy.

      "Arriving "home" safely in due time disappointment, things had changed in those few short years. Old friends gone, some moved and some died, young folks married and got their home cares now. Most of all they had forgotten the constant fogs and drizzling rain of London and longed for the sunshine and cloudless skies of Queensland. Fred and John William were feeling the effects of the damp. Decisions had to be made.

      "They all agreed that the sunny days in Australia would be good for Sarah's invalid husband, again they pack up, not only suitcases but household goods etc and soon were on their return journey to Australia going by way of South America round Cape Horn on the "British Nation" with 600 emigrants aboard. This trip was rough, crowded full of thrills and excitement they were all glad when it ended.

      "Volumes could be written about this one journey alone, Suffice to say it ended safely and this story continues with the lives of each individual . The mother had her family, John William Hurley gained his prize, Mary Ann Hougham became his bride and wife. It is after this marriage that MHP enters the scene."
