William Hale

Birth*1827 Gloucestershire, England, baptised 4 Nov 1827 Hawkesbury. 
(Migrant) Migration/Travel14 Mar 1833 Sailing with George Hale, Anna Hale, Hannah Hale, Emma Hale, Elizabeth Hale, Caroline Hale, Esther Hale to Hobart, TAS, Australia. Ship The family decided to emigrate to Van Diemen's Land. Very fortuitously, their initial travel plans were thwarted… At first they had intended to leave Liverpool on board "The Hibernian", but were unable to secure passage in time for its departure, so they were forced to wait several weeks for another vessel. They subsequently set sail, but their ship met a violent storm in the Bay of Biscay and nearly foundered, so the captain returned the ship to Liverpool, where "the old tub" was condemned. Whilst waiting (for two months) for yet another vessel, the Hale family learned that "The Hibernian" had caught fire at sea, and of the several hundred aboard, only about sixty people were saved. Their third voyage, aboard the "Princess Elizabeth", was also unsuccessful… a storm blew the vessel onto the Cheshire coast, and after the passengers and cargo were removed, she was towed back to Liverpool and declared unseaworthy. Two months later, the Hale family's fourth journey was delayed when their ship, the "Lady East", hit a sand bank near Liverpool … after being dislodged by a high tide, she was returned to the dock for inspection…there was no damage, so the ship was allowed to sail. It had taken a weary wait of eight months, but the Hale family's trip was finally 'underway'.
