Migrated from Wales 1860 see below
Joseph Vipond born
Wales 1827 with Wife Mary [Williams] Went to Australia 1860 aboard the “Ramillies” which arrived from
Plymouth Nov 11th 1860. The following children
went as well William born abt 1852, Annie born Abt 1853, Sarah Born Abt 1855 and Richard Born Abt 1859. Source L & G Mulquin
GLAMORGAN Lrootsweb 1997. I think at least one son Thomas may have been born in Australia.
According to L & G Mulquin the above Joseph Died 1868.
I believe that the
above Joseph was the son of William Vipon [Vipond] born 1807 and the brother of William born 1825, Richard born 1838? who
went to the USA and Thomas born 1828 who went to the USA and on to Canada.
The above Viponds
were probably non conformists and no church records have been found for them so far. It is also strange that other than William
Vipan [probably the son born 1825 who went to USA]
a lodger in Aberdare no trace of these Vipond's show up in the 1841 or 1851 censuses, which is very disappointing. However
marriage certificates for all the above sons are available from Merthyr Tydfil BMD.
If anyone in Australia
has any info on the above please contact me.
