A CHRISTCHURCH PRESS PROJECT

Sarah Chick (nee Hill)
The Charlotte Jane

Original information:
Records show that this is Sarah, nee Hill, but there was no Sarah Hill on the ship lists. It is likely that she is a member of the Hill family; if so, see Charles O Hill. Mrs Chick was apparently living in Fendalton in 1900.

Readers' response:
According to sources, this is Sarah Browning Hill and she married Peter Chick in 1875.1  According to the family, Sarah Browning Hill was born January 21, 1850, at Gloucester. Mrs Chick’s husband, Peter, was a market gardener. They lived in Burnside and a family member thinks later at Clarendon Terrace.

According to a family member, the confusion over Sarah Hill not being on the passenger lists is because she was originally christened Frances but changed her name to Sarah.2
