BOOTHEY, Sarah nee SHARP
BOOTHEY, Joseph Mr. F. W. Hutchinson, of Hackham, has supplied us with some information relative to the history of Mr. Jos. Boothey, who died towards the end of last month. Mr. Boothey was one of the earlier settlers in this State, having arrived as far back as 1840, in the ship Diadem. He was then only 12 years old. He and his parents stayed in Adelaide for a short time, and then took up land at Cherry Gardens, where the deceased gentleman lived for the greater part of his life. He was married on Christmas Day, 1849, to Miss Lucy Middleton, who had arrived in this State at a yet earlier date than Mr. Boothey being one of the passengers of the Buffalo, and arriving here at the age of 4 years. Mr. and Mrs. Boothey had the distinction of being the first couple married in the Cherry Gardens Church, where the Rev. J. Draper officiated, and of this church they remained stanch adherents for a period of 54 years — till their death. Mr. Boothey was chiefly engaged in farming, but towards the latter end of his life resided with his son-in-law, Mr. F. W. Hutchinson, at Hackham. He died on June 25 last, and was predeceased by Mrs. Boothey by ten months. They had 13 children, of whom 10 still survive. 38 grand children, and 16 great-grandchildren, and fully merited the great esteem in which they were everywhere regarded.

Joseph Francis Hornsby, his wife, Elizabeth Green, and their younger children travelled to S.A. aboard the ship Diadem. Their three eldest children Thomas, Joseph Henry, and Elizabeth had already emigrated and settled in 1836 and 1837. Sadly, 46 year old Elizabeth died on the voyage, which must have been very difficult for them all. Youngest daughter, Ann, was only 7 years old at the time. Joseph took up 217 acres of land at Munno Para, and named it Green Tree Farm. He established a house, yards, and fences and had 2 teams of bullocks, horses and dairy cows. When Joseph died in 1861 at age 72, his daughter Eleanor and her husband took over and expanded Green Tree Farm and raised 12 children there.

Thomson, which occurred at the residence of her eldest son Thomas, " Highland Home," Attamurra, on the 3rd inst. The deceased had attained the good old age of 84 years, and her death was mainly due to senile decline. She was in her usual fair health till about two years ago, but was an invalid for a year and a half. The deceased was, prior to her marriage, Miss Emma Maria Hornsby, a daughter of the late Mr. Joseph Hornsby, of Wandsworth, Surrey, England, where she was born in 1824. She came to South Australia in the ship Diadem in the latter part of 1840. This ship, it may be mentioned, was the first ship to come up to the new port. In 1842 she was married to the late Mr. Robert Thomson, at Adelaide. In 1860, eighteen years afterwards, Mr. and Mrs. Thomson and their family came to Mount Gambier, and settled on a farm at Attamurra.
