Notes for Samuel Moore: General Notes: Arrived 5 April 1841 in Sydney NSW on the Bussorah Merchant. Gives his place of origin on the assisted passage as Montgomeryshire and carrried on claiming to be a native of Wales in Australia. It is possible he was born in Wales as although he was baptised at St Botolphs without Aldgate London in 1822 along with his siblings (apart from Thomas), he was 5 at the time so Fanny/Frances could have gone back to Llandyssil to have the baby in 1817. None of the other children give their place of birth as Wales. As Uncle Samuel Breeze left him the most money £400 this indicates he knew him well so maybe he spent time as a child and also possiby as a teenager in Montgomeryshire.

Samuel had an obituary published in the Mudgee Guardian on 11 June 1906, page 2. The article doesn't tell anything of his origins in the UK, but does say that he was an undertaker for a time in the town, which fits with the occupation of carpenter.
