Frederick was my Great, Great grandfather. He married Sarah Rontree the daughter of Thomas Rontree a warder who had also travelled to Australia with his family on the Nile. Frederick married under the name Kennell but reverted back to Holmes at a later date. In 1864 Frederick became clerk to the Fremantle merchant Lionel Samson. Two children were produced from Frederick’s marriage. The eldest, Alice and then George Frederick who became an early pioneer of the Kimberly area. Around 1866 he had a store in Champion Bay. Shipping records show that he possibly may have travelled to Mauritius with horses about 1869. I have no record of him after that date.
