The story of the Crawford Family Tree
To the readers of this story I would like to say hello and would like to hear from you with any comments you might have. My address is 21 Mulgoa Ave Dandenong Vic 3175 Australia.

My name is Lochlan Rex Crawford (6th generation)
I was born on the 28 June 1953 in Balmain N.S.W. Australia. My father was Victor Leslie Crawford (5th generation) the son of Joseph George Crawford (4th generation) and Mary Matilda Behan.

I would like to thank people like Gordon Crawford, Rodney Crawford, Fae Crawford and Fay Leatheam from Nowra also my sisters from Sydney and my sister from Bangalow and everyone who has helped put our family story together so far. On the 2 Feb 2005 will mark the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the first Crawford of our line coming to Australia. It would be nice to have a Crawford family reunion in Nowra on or close to this day as possible.

The Crawford line started with William Crawford (1st generation) and Mary (surname unknown at this stage), in Ballymore Armagh Ireland. They had a son Joseph (2nd generation).
Joseph was born in 1821 in Ballymore Armagh Ireland. Joseph married Elizabeth Jane Annett the daughter of Thomas Annett and Elizabeth Ann Tolley on the 9th March 1841. Joseph and Elizabeth had eight children. Five were born in Ireland one was born on the voyage to Australia and two were born in Australia. Mary was born on the 4 May 1841, Thomas was born on the 11 November 1842, William was born in 1846, Sarah was born on the 8 May 1848, and Joseph was born on the 4 May 1852. Robert John was born on the voyage to Australia. Elizabeth Jane was born in 1861 in Campbelltown N.S.W. Australia. James was born in 1864 in Campbelltown N.S.W. Australia.
The ship they embarked on was named the Nabob and it sailed from Liverpool and then left London England on the 3rd of November 1854. After the ship had sailed there was an infant male born on the voyage.
He was first named Nabob after the ship and then renamed Robert John Crawford on arrival in Australia. The Nabob arrived in Sydney on the 2nd February 1855.The voyage took three months. On the Immigration lists dated the 7th of February 1855 it showed that Joseph and Elizabeth had no relatives in the colony. Immigration details are from the N.S.W. State archives at the Rocks Sydney Reels 2137 and 66.
On the travel papers of Joseph and Elizabeth it showed only four of the five children came out on the Nabob in 1854. The children’s names were Mary, Thomas, Sarah and Joseph.
William stayed back in Ireland for some unknown reason. He did arrive at a later date to join his family.

Joseph's father William was deceased according to records and his mother lived in Ballymore. Her name was Mary. Elizabeth's parents Thomas and Elizabeth Annett were both still living in Ballymore, when they left for Australia.
The next piece of information I have is a Copy of the Shoalhaven census district report of 1891.I got from the N.S.W. State archives at the Rocks Sydney showing Joseph Crawford at 13 Flat Rock Creek Shoalhaven. There was a Mrs. William Crawford at 14 Flat Rock Creek Shoalhaven.
Thomas Crawford at 31 Cock Crow Creek Tomerong. James Crawford at 35 Nowra Hill.
Robert John Crawford at 101 Yerrieryong. Early Lands Dept. Maps dated between 1860&1883 show land held by R.J.Crawford on the eastern side of Braidwood Rd. Adjacent to the present southern boundary of HMAS Albatross.
