Charles Veasey Wills
Posted by Algy Alexander on December 16, 2012, 12:10 am
I'm currently looking for information on Charles Veasey Wills. He was born in 1821 and was a Vesta lamp dealer of Exeter, but went bankrupt in 1851. In 1871 he sailed to Australia on the "Royal Dane", arriving at Brisbane on the 2nd December 1871. He was accompanied by his daughter Kate, and also a Martin Wills (his brother?). After that I don't know what happened to him.
I'm also looking for information about his wife Georgina Ann Wills, née Strong. She appears in the 1861 census as a milliner in Exeter, and after that vanishes. I don't know whether or not she went to Australia with her husband, since I haven't been able to find a full passenger list of the "Royal Dane". Any information much appreciated!
