I am searching for info on my gr gr grandmother Sarah Holland. Sarah was sent to Ausatralia on the "Garland Grove" on Jan 20th 1843. Her records show that her father was James Holland, her brothers were John & Matthew.  There is no mention of a mother.  She seems to have been born near St Andrews, England  1816-1818.  Sarah gave birth to a son William in the Female House of Correction in Tasmania in 1846.  Can anyone please help with further information.

Hi there,

 I live in Streaky bay South Australia and I am fairly certain that the Sarah Holland who came out ont he Golden Grove (2) was also my gggg grandmother.  Her son William born on May 30, 1846 Launceston, Tasmania  is my ggg grandfather also.  There are not many records of either but I have found some things. His father was unknown although Sarah did marry a William Ferrier and have another child named M Ferrier.  My family have always thought that a William Holland who came out on the Marion in 1844 was our paternal ancestor.  I have found no marital conenction between the two.  They were both single when they were transported and records in England ae very confusing now with so many familiar names crossing over between family lines.  Did you find anything on Sarahs father or brothers?

Did you find anything on Sarah in England at all? I am trying to rule out her connection to the other William Holland (Marion and there are no clear records on him but I have traced his family members to Spitalfields in England) altogether so that I can reveal the truth to my family finally. 

My only questoin was perhaps Sarah and William (Marion) they were somehow related in England? Although I have not found any chrystal clear evidence of this.

Cheers Jayne Holland.
