Passing on information my great grandmother was Alice Wills, born 1867/68 in Clerkenwell, Middlesex, and she came to Queensland Australia in 1891 on the ship Tara. She went on to marry John Henry Dickson and went to the Normanby gold fields near Bowen Queensland to live and then onto Townsville. She died in Toowoomba Queensland in 1938. Her morther was Ann Sheppard and her father as Jessen/Jessea Wills Seaman. I have yet to find any records of Alice and her mother in the Uk. John Henry Dickson was born in New Orleans Lousianna. If any reader of your web site knows any info on the above I would greatly appreciate a message.
