31 James OSBORNE m Elizabeth SNELLING (b 1821 Thetford) 15 Oct 1849 St Peter's Church, Thetford

Note: Witnesses at the marriage were Susan SNELLING and Joseph FOWELL. Joe FOWELL, grandson of this Joseph, married Mabel Osborne BROAD, James' granddaughter in Dunedin in 1909. The family was living at St Nicholas Lane in 1852 and 23 White Hart Street in 1861: James was a pattern maker for Burrellsin 1852 and in 1861. Ellen (as Elizabeth Ellen was known) and Martha emigrated to New Zealand on the barque "Coromandel" in 1880, and Ellen met Moses (whilst on the "Coromandel") whom she subsequently married. There is a book about the family called "The Browns of Kyeburn Peninsula" by Wally Brown which gives a wonderful picture of the whole family of Browns. Moses was a successful gold miner on or near the Kyeburn River

The Coromandel left England Dec 19,1879 and arrived in Dunedin on Apr 2, 1880. It was carrying 1400 tons of cargo, 25 tons gunpowder, and 32 passengers all in steerage class (31 originally plus 1 born on the way). A press cutting from the day of arrival may be seen here

A total of 13 different surnames, are all documented. Miss Osborne being listed as "with the Broads" in their cabin or possibly just a screened off area.

"For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during the operations about Haplincourt on 2nd September, 1918. The battalion of the left had failed to reach its objective, with the result that the left flank of the company to which he belonged remained "in the air". On reaching the first objective, the platoon commander had been wounded, and he was left in command of his platoon, isolated on both flanks. He immediately rushed the cross roads, taking over fifty prisoners and several machine guns. He then discovered that the enemy was strongly entrenched behind him and the flanking battalion. Reorganising his platoon, he maintained his position until reinforcements came up and restored the situation. During the whole operations he displayed coolness and courage which were an inspiration to all ranks under his command.
