Trove Tuesday - One, Two, Three

Anyone in Australia with the name Pusell is likely to be a cousin of mine. We all descend from a young errand boy, James Pusell who was transported on the James Pattison in 1837.

For this Trove Tuesday post I am sharing one of the newer articles that is available on Trove from the Australian Women's Weekly. I have never met the subjects of this story, Malcolm and Pam Pusell, but through this and other articles in digitised newspapers have learnt quite a bit about them and their special family.

1973 'THE FAMILY.', The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982), 25 July, p. 18, viewed 28 August, 2012, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article45651319

As this is a multipage article you will have to follow the link in the citation above to read all about it

Jill, the name of the ship really stood out for me...

I have an ancestor, James Pattison Swadling...

"James Pattison Swadling was named after the ship that brought the family to Australia, arriving 9th December, 1838" He was born on the 13 Feb 1839.

Seems as good a reason as any to choose a name...
