From Ancestry's sscammell1: "Sarah Dunstall left Yorkshire for Sheerness in 1827. In the census of 6 June 1841 in HIGH ST, BLUE TOWN, SHEERNESS, KENT, ENGLAND, she was listed as the wife of Joseph James Greathead.
In the census of 30 March 1851 at 308 HIGHT STREET, CHATHAM, KENT, ENGLAND, she was listed as the mother of William Greathead.
Joseph and Sarah emigrated with their four youngest children, Alfred, Emma, Eliza and Edward leaving the London Docks on April 12 1853 and arriving on 6 August 1853 in Australia on the ship "Diana". Joseph acted as the ships doctor, he was a chemist, and also a Methodist Minister. Joseph produced a handwritten diary of the journey from Shadwell Basin, off the Thames to Australia.
