Erratum Biographical index of South Australians 1836-1885

The Biological Index of South Australians is a valuable resource for all local or family historians. The works were first published in 1990, and now include two extra volumes.

Having just purchased this, I have discovered why my family history was at a stand still, and, this project is primarily to register the errors that may have occurred due to mistakes, and mis-information.

In addition, if you have any extra information, ie: missing spouse etc. this would be a goog place to add the information.

The work is very extensive, and, errors and omissions are always possible, with corrections may come debate, which would be best in the discussions attached to this project.

We will add this project to "The History Link" project, so, if your family arrived in South Australia in that time span, they will be noted.

If you have corrections and additions to this collection, please:

  1. Join the project
  2. Add the original information
  3. Add the emended version
  4. Add the link to the profile
  5. Add the profile to the project

You will see how this is formatted by the entries already here, if this is too difficult, then please message the collaborators of the project with the above information, and they will add it for you.

This will help many who may see the different versions of the facts, and, wonder which is correct.

Thank You

The George Duthy that arrived on the Coromandel was 18 years old (born 1820 or so) and was single, no children. At the moment he would be: George Henry Duthy, the nephew of George and Maria. Please see profile for all details of immigration

George and Maria are not included in this collection.

Ships List:

  • DUTHY George arrived in SA 1837-01-12 aboard Coromandel (1) from London [Source:2,7(not this J DUTHY),27,PRG174/13]

Did he send his nephew ahead to make arrangements for their arrival?

Maria died, and a year or so after that death, and death of another child Alice Duthy, also assigned to the "Corromandel George" at times, George married Jamesina Sword Alston

Still looking in to the connections in Unley, South Australia with "Duthy Street".
