  • Notes 
    • Agnes and Henry emigrated to South Australia in 1848. Henry was an architect and set up a successful practice in the Adelaide area. He is mentioned in ‘Architects of Australia’ and extensive research into his life has been carried out by one of his descendants, Michael Miller.
      Henry kept a diary of the voyage to Australia, which sounds extremely unpleasant. Both he and Agnes became ill due to the dirty, cramped and airless conditions, bad food and rough weather. Agnes especially seems to have suffered as she was pregnant with their first child. Henry died three years after they arrived but even after such a short period, the couple had managed to establish themselves in the colony. Henry’s architectural projects were completed by Edmund Wight, whom Agnes subsequently married.
