- Marriage: Emma Birge (Binge?)
JAMES FISHER: James, the second son of Elizabeth and William, married Emma Birge (Binge?) in Middle Swan on 11 March 1852. They had a daughter, Alicia, born in Middle Swan, but by 1854, they had settled in Melbourne, and lived in Brunswick at least until 1875. They had 8 more children in Melbourne: Emily Elizabeth b 1852; Sarah Anne b 1856; Alicia b 1859; William b 1861; Charles b 1863; James b 1866 -; John Thomas b 1868; Lily b 1874. The first Alicia must have died, but the second Alicia (Elicia?) married a Job Holder, and most of their children were born in Pentridge. Pentridge may have been the name of the district in the vicinity of the Coburg Gaol or maybe Mr. Holder lived on the gaol premises as part of his work requirement.
