From Icklesham to New South Wales Early Colonial Emigrates (1838-

1842) – The Bardens

Member, Chris Offen, has researched emigrants – those who chose to go rather than transported – to Australia. His results with particular reference to the village of Icklesham are provided here and indicate the kind of detail the Society can find on long-lost relatives.

The HRFHS has an index of bounty emigrates, including those from Hastings and surrounding villages, held in the research (Tomlin) room at the Ore Centre which is available to members.
