William Fagg had Catarrh and was listed on the sick list of the Bengal Merchant.

He was assigned to Andrew Badgery at St Vincent.

1839: TOL St Vincent (Braidwood)
24/4/1841: COF

1842: Married Catherine Pollock at Bungonia. 1 child, Mary Ann born 1843. 
Catherine died 1845 aged 23.  the Registration No. was V1845827 ‘828 was Mary Ann, Infant, and 829 was Eliza, Infant, so perhaps they all died together.

1848: Married Margaret McGuire (b 1808 and died 1871 aged 65 at Ballallaba, Braidwood) No children found.

1878: William died at Liverpool, aged 70.
