FAMILY HISTORY

           (e) George Curtis (1806-    ) and Priscilla Wiggs (1804) sailed to Wellington, New Zealand in 1840 on the 'London' with five children. Priscilla Wiggs was the daughter of Charles Wiggs and Priscilla Woodley. Her brother, George Alfred Wiggs and his wife Lucy Louisa nee Tween set sail from London in 1853 on the 'Earl of Charlemont' that was bound for Sydney. The 'Earl of Charlemont' was never to arrive and founded on a sand bar on the 18th June 1853 off the shores of Barwon Heads on the Victoria Coast. George and Lucy filled their laceup boots with soverigns but their boots came off and they lost their money. (One cannot help but wonder had their boots not come undone if they would have drowned due to the weight in their boots!).The only casualty was a passenger who died soon after the vessel struck. George and Lucy waited for  four days to be taken from Barwon to Geelong where they reamined for the rest of their lives.  George died in 1892 and was buried with his wife, Lucy, in the Eastern Cemetery at Geelong, Victoria, Australia.
