  • It seems that following the death of his wife, James LANE then remarried on 29th July 1800 to a Elizabeth ATKINS.
  • his grandson, my great, great grandfather, Robert LANE (1826-1904), his wife Susannah and his 6 children arrived in Australia in 1855 on the ill-fated maiden voyage of the luxurious “Shomberg which was shipwrecked en route near Petersborough, Victoria, resulting in loss of all their furniture.
