     Henry Gill was also known as Harry and occasionally Henry Wyatt. He was born on 24 March 1851 at Dean Street, Crediton, Devon, EnglandG. His Birth was registered by his mother on the 2nd of May 1851.

Henry Gill married Eliza Anne Roberts on 2 February 1874 at Old St Pancras Church, London, Middlesex, EnglandG. Henry is listed as a Bricklayer at this time. Note that Eliza, through her life, was also referred to as Eliza Anne ROFFEY or ROFE. Both sets of their parents were apparently dead at this time.6,5 Henry Gill and Eliza Anne Roberts arrived on 12 February 1874 to London, EnglandG.7 "Our Grandparents sailed from London for South Australia on 12th February in 1874 - just ten days after they were marrie at St Pancras Old Church, London. They voyaged to South Australia as assisted passengers on the sailing ship the "Hesperus" of 1770 tons, arriving at Outer Harbour on May 10th 1874 after a voyage of eighty eight days.
The newspaper cutting taken from South Australian Register" of May 11th of that year describes in some detail the events and dramas of the voyage."8
Henry Gill was found on a passenger list on 11 May 1874 at The South Australian Advertiser;
"ARRIVAL OF THE HESPERUS WITH PASSENGERS AND EMIGRANTS.
During the early days of colonisation there were few vessels ready to bring hither the bone and sinew of the colony. The Bucephalaus, Flora, Northern Light. Velocity, Roman
Empire, and a hundred others, brought to our shores the people who have made the colony what it is. And now there comes a ship, owned to a great extent in the colony, which imports fresh hands to develop the industry of our favored land. Under the circumstances of bad weather people do not in general look their very best, but on Sunday afternoon we could not fail to see promising colonists in the new comers, who have been so anxiously looked for during the last days. From the trade classification we find there are carpenters, laborers. masons, miners, smiths, joiners, painters, domestic servants, weavers, cabinetmakers, and several others whose occupation is not properly defined. Dr. Belgrave, the Surgeon-Superintendent, speaks most highly of their conduct during the voyage, dwelling especially on that of the single men, than whom he has never sailed with a better lot, though he has been engaged for a long period sailing in charge of passengers of this class to America. It has been a matter of regret that during the early part of the voyage measles broke out amongst the juveniles, and nine deaths are recorded. There occurred two births, and as a general rule the health of the people has been above the average. This may in a measure be accounted for by the admirable space and ventilation of the ship, for in every way she affords every requisite for the good and comfortable transport of people. As soon as the weather will permit she will be taken into harbor, after Dr. Duncan has concluded his visit of inspection.
The following is a complete list of the emigrants on board the

     Eliza Alice Gill was also known as Lilla.2 She was born on 21 June 1879 at Devonport, Devon, EnglandG.1,3 She appeared in the English census of 1881 at 8 Lamorna Place, Stoke Damerel, DevonG, She is listed as the daughter of Henry and Eliza and as being one year of age and born in Devon.. She emigrated with her parents Henry and Eliza in September 1889 aboard the "Iberia" with Captain Chas Adey. This time the family settled in Melbourne where they spent the rest of their lives. From this point the family history is all well established thanks to the information contained in the Family Bible which forms part of this history package. Stangely, Henry is not mentioned. Only Eliza Annie (35), Sarah (14), Eliza A. (10), Howard Augustus (5) and Harry Wyatt (3). Her married name was Montgomery.2
Eliza Alice Gill died on 7 July 1920 at Blackburn, MelbourneG, at age 41. She died as a result of a Railway Accident and the Gill Bible notes "dearly loved and deeply mourned". At the time of her death she resided with her husband at Baker's Road, Blackburn.3
An Inquest into the death of Eliza was held by the Coroner an unknown person on 15 July 1920 at The Morgue, MelbourneG, It appears that Lilla was killed at about 6:30pm after arriving at Blackburn Station on the 5:35 train from Melbourne. She needed to cross from North to South across the Level Crossing to proceed home. She waited for the 5:35 to pass when she stepped onto the line and was knocked down by Warburton train going in the opposite direction. She was killed instantly and her left leg was severed above the knee. Dr Richards was sent for and pronounced her dead.
Her husband swore that she was used to the crossing as she travelled once a week to her mother. Further he noted that "she was a little deaf and at times was worse than others". at age 41.
