THE DINGLE FAMILY

and of Cornwall

Descendants of William DINGLE and Jane POMERY, who arrived in Port Adelaide, South Australia aboard the "Royal Admiral" on 18 January 1838.

The vessel departed London on 18 Sep 1837, and Falmouth on 26 Sep 1837, and was under the command of Captain Fotheringham. The "Royal Admiral" was a barque, of 413 tons, and carried 208 passengers, being 139 adults and 69 children.
