In 1884, Lewis Herbert Shepperd emigrated to Tasmania. He sailed together with Richard and Harry Franks and future sister-in-law, Sarah Jane Franks. Sarah’s fiancé and Lewis Herbert’s brother, Francis Henry Shepperd, was already residing in Tasmania. Previously he had been a clerk at Beckington, England, which is where the Franks family came from.
My question is whether there was a typo in the caption as I am not aware of a farm owned by C Franks. Could this have been Harry Franks’ potato farm?
Thanks for checking in and welcome to my adventure
