Where did Thomas and Benjamin Boyce come from?

In 1837, Thomas Boyce landed in Holdfast Bay, Australia, on the ship "Katherine Stewart Forbes". Benjamin Boyce, who landed in Adelaide, Australia on the ship "Moffatt" in 1839, and John Boyce, who arrived in Adelaide, Australia aboard the ship "Surrey" in 1838. The boys' father was Henry Boyce, and their mother was Margaret Smith. They had two siblings: a brother, William, and a sister, Mary.

They were born in Scotland. No exact date has been found for their death, but based on how old they would have been when the ship on which they came to Australia died, they could have been dead by 1857, the year their son Thomas landed in South Australia. Their story may have been forgotten, if it wasn't for their great-grandson, who discovered documentation showing that they were brought over on the ship "Katherine Stewart Forbes".

Where did Christopher Columbus originate from?

Genoa (Italy) Christopher Columbus, the son of a wool merchant, is thought to have been born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. He acquired a job on a merchant ship when he was still a teenager. He cruised until 1476, when his ship was assaulted by pirates as it went north along the Portuguese coast. The young Columbus was taken prisoner and held for three years before being ransomed back to his family. After returning home, he found that his father had died and left him with responsibility for the family business.

So where did this young man who would one day travel across the ocean in search of new worlds come from? And what kind of family was he part of? We will never know the answers to these questions because Columbus kept no records and left no memoirs. What we do know is learned from other people who knew him. His reputation as a great navigator led many travelers to hire him for their ships, so he must have been capable of getting them where they needed to go. And since he returned to Genoa with money in his pocket, he must have done something right with his life. This means he must have been successful at work or else wouldn't have been able to afford such expensive clothes and tools.

His family was not very well-off either. When he was only nine years old, his mother died and two years later his father too. Since then, he had been working to support himself and his sister.

Where did the Christian Brothers establish a school?

Similarly, in 1842, a mission to Sydney, Australia, failed after only a few years. Brother Ambrose Treacy established a presence in Melbourne, Australia in 1868, then in Brisbane, Australia, in 1875, and in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 1876. A school was established in St. John's, Newfoundland, in 1875. There are now more than 9,000 students at 80 locations across six continents.

The first school opened in South Boston by the Christian Brothers was called The Hall School. It started with an elementary school and a high school. Today, there are three Halls in South Boston: Hall Elementary School, Hall Middle School, and Hall High School.

The Brothers have also been involved in education around the world for over 160 years. Here is a list of some of the schools they have run (or still run)':

Australia - The Brothers established their first school in Sydney in 1842. By 1946, there were 35 schools with 10,000 students enrolled in them. This number has since dropped to just under 9,000 students at 80 locations.

New Zealand - The first school was established in Dunedin in 1876. Now, there are more than 9,000 students attending 80 locations.

United States - The first school was established in Boston by the Christian Brothers in 1842. There are now more than 9,000 students attending 80 locations.

Where did Thomas Mitchell and Tom Wills live?

Following Thomas Mitchell's discovery of "Australia Felix" the following year, the Willses traveled overland to the Grampians in the colony's Port Phillip District with shepherds and their families (now the state of Victoria). There they established a farm on what is now known as Wills Hill. The site is marked by a monument erected by the Australian government in 1827.

Thomas Mitchell lived on his estate near Melbourne until his death in 1856. He is buried in the Mitchell Cemetery in Melbourne.

Tom Wills died in 1848 at the age of 31 after falling off his horse while trying to escape from mobs of protesting students. He is buried next to his wife Amelia on the grounds of Flinders University in South Australia.

Amelia Wills was born in Ireland in 1796. When she was only six years old, her father died, leaving her and her brother John in poor health. They were sent to England to be educated by their uncle who owned a large estate there. When she was 12 years old, Amelia fell seriously ill with tuberculosis and was told that she would not survive. She decided to put aside her illness and return home to Australia. However, the ship in which she was traveling had a very bad voyage and when it docked in Sydney Harbor, Amelia was unable to leave it because of her frail health. A friend took her home instead.

What country did Christopher Newport come from?

English Christopher Newport was an English privateer, ship captain, and explorer who helped build Jamestown, North America's first permanent English settlement, in 1607. He also is credited with discovering the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay on his way to New England in 1608.

Newport was born in Norfolk around 1563-1564. His parents were Richard and Elizabeth Newport, who were wealthy land owners and active members of the Church of England. Young Christopher joined the merchant navy at a young age and traveled around the world three times before he reached 30 years of age. During this time he captured several Spanish ships and made lots of money which allowed him to buy land in Virginia.

After retiring from sailing ships Nathaniel Bacon recruited Newport into the government service as a colonel of militia. This gave Christopher the opportunity to go on more explorations and discover more lands for the colony to grow into. In 1609 he led an expedition up the Potomac River where they found coal and iron. Then in 1610 he sailed up the James River where they saw many Indians. After returning home that year he led another expedition up the York River where they found even more coal and iron. In 1613 he went back to Europe and brought back two ships full of timber for use by the colony.

Where did Thomas and Margaret Gage live in England?

In June 1773, Thomas and Margaret Gage with their ten children went to England and resided on the family estate in Sussex. They missed the Boston Tea Party in December 1773 because they were in England. As a result of the ensuing debate, British soldiers sealed down Boston Harbor until the colonists made full restitution for every leaf of tea destroyed. The Massachusetts Government refused to pay, so the British government had no choice but to rescind its action.

After the Gages returned to America, they settled on a farm that Thomas Gage bought in Brookline, Massachusetts. He was elected town clerk and served one term before being elected selectman. In 1789, he was appointed deputy surveyor of highways for Brookline and Norwood. Brookline at that time consisted of about 80 acres with seven houses built on it. The population was about 150.

Thomas Gage died in Brookline on September 2, 1809 at the age of 70. His wife, Margaret, who was forty-two years old at the time of his death, survived him by twenty-one years. They had twelve children together: nine boys and three girls.

The Gage family is an important part of American history. Several members of the family became famous people themselves: Joseph Gage, a lieutenant general in the army; Samuel Gage, a major general in the army; and William Gage, a brigadier general in the army, are all listed on the Memorial Day parade in Washington, D.C.
