  • Notes 
    • Youngest daughter of Benjamin Wickham of Wickham Park, ADELAIDE who emigrated to Australia.

      A link at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=roncox&id=I14488 says:

      "Benjamin WICKHAM (her father) served in 40th Foot under Wellington. Battles of Albuhera, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz & Salamanca. Awarded Military General Service Medal 1793-1814 with four bars. Pensioned in 1813. "Meadows Heritage" - 1983 - indicates he was a British Army Captain at the Battle of Waterloo. [It is unlikely that he attained the rank of Captain]

      The Somerset Electoral Register, Eastern Division for 1832 (and also 1835) has Benjamin WICKHAM leasing houses and the Horse and Groom Inn at East Woodlands, Frome, Somerset. Seems highly likely that this is our Benjamin given his activities in Adelaide in 1838/39 (see below).

      Benjamin arrived "Africaine" 12 Nov 1836 with wife Tabitha and children Eliza, Daniel R, and Lucy. Benjamin was present at the Proclamation of South Australia.

      On 31 Dec 1838, Benjamin was granted a licence to sell wine, beer and other malt liquors. He owned Wickham's Hotel South Tce (Town Acre 691) in 1838-1839. In 1839, property to be 'let or sold'.

      Benjamin also owned quite a lot of land at various times. Allen's Almanack 1849 has him owning 320 ac Hd Kuitpo, 584 ac Hd Willunga, 84 ac Hd Noarlunga.

      In 1837 he owned Town Acres 691 on South Terrace, 609 on Gilbert St and 602 on Gilles St. In Noarlunga, owned Sections 725 and 726 on Onkaparinga River. In Hundred of Kuitpo, Sections 3509 and 3510, known as Clear Hills. In Port Lincoln, half acre allotments 25, 131, 197, 237, 262, 389, 422, 474, 764, 929, 941. Also 20 acre blocks 8 and 58. On Boston Island, half acre lots 66 and 115.

      In the Hundred of Willunga, he owned Sections 568, 569, 572, 573, 574, and mentioned in his will, Sections 530, 722, 723, 533, 724, 725, 726. The Govt. Gazette of 6 Aug 1876 also shows Sections 717, 719, 720 and 301 in name of Mary Ann Wickham.

      A newspaper obituary at his death indicates he was 104 years old at death. However, the SA Biog. Index indicates born 1791, religion Methodist." John Jennings J_JENNINGS@onaustralia.com.au [1]
