I have my ancestorís brother, Austin POWER (12 March 1818), as the Publican of the Crown Tavern, London in the 1851 Census with his wife Harriet BARDENS. Their second son, Alfred Mathew Edward Manning POWER, was born in 1850 whilst there. The eldest son, Austin William Bardens POWER (1847) is staying around the corner there with his motherís sisters. Their only daughter, Justina Mary POWER (1845) is missing but I spot her when their ship, Fitzjames, arrives in Melbourne on the 7 September 1854. Their twins, Charles Blight POWER (1853) died on the 15 July 1854 on the way out and was buried at sea; Francis Foot POWER (1853), died the following year in Bendigo Gold Fields and Austinís wife died in 1856. Both she and Francis are buried in White Hills Cemetery Bendigo. They moved to Port Chalmers (Dunedin) in New Zealand on the 8 January 1863 onboard the Dublin.
