      Register of Emigrant Labourers Applying for Free Passage
      South Australian Assisted Passengers 1836-1841
      The very first era of migration to South Australia is probably the best documented even though many passenger lists have been lost.
      The South Australians who arrived in the colony 1836 to 1841 as assisted passengers all had their details recorded in a register which survives in the PRO Kew.
      The 1836-1841 Emigrant Register contains a range of useful information.
      Some entries are more informative than others!

      1867 Sands and Mc Dougall Directories. Joshua Turner North Parade Lefeure Peninsular.

      there was no mention of a Joshua TURNER at Elland or Sowerby Bridge in either the 1830 or 1834 trade directories. Here is the list of the TURNER entries found in those places.
      1830
      Midgley Turner,shopkeeper - Sowerby Bridge
      John Turner, innkeeper - 'Bird-in-Hand',Elland
      John Turner, woollen manufacturer - Cooper House Mill,Sowerby Bridge
      James Turner, cooper - Sowerby Bridge

      1834
      Richard Turner,fulling miller - Soyland
      Midgley Turner,shopkeeper - Sowerby Bridge
      John Turner,retailer of beer - Elland
      Jonas Turner,retailer of beer - King Cross
      William Turner,woollen cloth manufacturer - Greetland
      James Turner,cooper - Sowerby Bridge

      Given that Joshua was a cooper and named a son James, I'm assuming that this James is a brother of Joshua

      James had a son in 1834
