Edward and Juliana Routledge departed from Plymouth, together with 190 other emigrants,
on the Lady Clarke on 4 September 1841. By the time they arrived in Sydney on 26 December
1841, Juliana was pregnant with their first child, Mary Ann Sophia. Edward worked as a
Blacksmith in Sydney, however when Henry Nicholas was born in 1854 he stated his
profession as ‘mathematical instrument maker’ or watchmaker on the birth certificate.
Shortly after the birth of their seventh child Edward, in 1857, the family moved to Brisbane
where they settled at Kangaroo Point. Here their last son, George William, was born in 1859.
Juliana died from phthisis in 1862, leaving Edward with several young children to care for.
Edward survived Juliana by 30 years but never remarried.
Edward continued to reside at Kangaroo Point where many family members were involved in
the fishing and oyster industry. He died on 19 November 1892 and is buried with his daughter Emma, his son-in-law Pablo Ignatius and his grand children.
