    Notes 
    • http://www.geocities.com/wanderer57au/AmeliaLangley.html

      Amelia Langley was the daughter of convict parents David Langley and Phillis Skinner. She was born in Hobart, Tasmania on the 2 September 1837. I felt that Amelia Langley and her children deserved a page of their own, as they seemed to have led very interesting lives, moving around a lot, not to mention the various partners and husbands that they had. It seemed to be traditional for them to have at least two husbands, if not more!!. Amelia married Richard PINNUCK <http://www.geocities.com/wanderer57au/RichardPinnuck.html> when she was just 13 years old, and by the time she was 17 years old, she had two daughters (that I know of) and had left Van Diemen's Land sometime between the births of Frances Amelia in 1852 and Elizabeth in 1855. Frances was born in Hobart VDL, and Elizabeth was born at Avoca, Victoria. Amelia returned to VDL on the Empire on 11 May 1856, presumedly she had her children with her. Richard Pinnuck had previously left VDL on board the Adventure for Melbourne, Victoria on the 23 March 1852. On Elizabeth's birth certificate in 1855, Richard is listed as a 'Gold Digger'. I have no knowledge of Richard returning to VDL, nor can I find any record of his death or burial. Amelia next appears in White Hills, Victoria, where she gave birth to Adelaide Porter on the 23 September 1859. James Porter was born in 1863, and Alice Porter was born in Majorca, Victoria in 1868. The father of these children was James PORTER <http://www.geocities.com/wanderer57au/Porter.html> who was born circa 1830 in Preston, England. He was also a convict, and was transported to VDL on the Elphinstone, the same ship that Richard Pinnuck was transported to VDL on, and as Amelia was involved with both these men, I am convinced that Richard Pinnuck and James Porter knew each other. The question is: what happened to Richard Pinnuck? He must have either died, been presumed dead, or left Australia between 1855 (birth of his daughter Elizabeth) and 1859 (when Adelaide Porter born). James Porter died in Ballarat, Victoria in 1868. At Carisbrook, Victoria, on the 22 December 1871 Amelia married William Watson, who was born in 1829 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. William was the son of Edward Watson and Sarah Rodgers. He died on the 9 May 1904 in South Melbourne, Victoria. Amelia died on the 8 April 1890 at Williamtown, Victoria and is interred in the Williamtown Cemetery with William.
