Cadet lines in New South Wales, 1835+

Robert Baskerville, 1850s

Robert Baskerville was born in the Devonshire village of Wembury, on the Cornish border, on 22nd August 1810, a son of Sampson and Mary Baskerville, and grandson of John Baskerville of the neighbouring village of Antony in Cornwall.

Robert married Agnes, and several years later the family emigrated to New South Wales as assisted immigrants. They arrived in Sydney on the 'Lady Ann' in 1854 with their five children: Mary Ann, Robert, Sampson, Ellen and Henry.

I have no other record of Robert and Agnes Baskerville as yet. It is possible that they did not stay long in New South Wales but moved on to another colony.
