  • She was baptized on 27 July 1834 in St Peter, Walworth, Surry, England. Her parents were given as John and Mary. She was baptised four weeks before her marriage by banns.
  • At the age of 21 years and 19 days, Sarah Newitt married Thomas Bridgeman, son of Robert Bridgeman and Sarah Wanstall, on 24 August 1834 in St Mary's Church, Newington, Surry, England. Thomas was a bachelor and Sarah a spinster, both of the Parish of St Mary Newington. They were married by banns. Witnesses to the marriage were Edmund ? and Elizabeth ?. Sarah had been baptized just a few weeks before their marriage.
  • In 1834 Sarah Newitt and Thomas Bridgeman lived in 1 Webber Street, Blackfriars Road, London.
  • Sarah Newitt and Thomas Bridgeman immigrated to Adelaide on 17 October 1837. According to the immigration records Thomas and his wife Sarah were still livng in Blackfriars at the time they made application as assisted immigrants. Thomas was 29 years old and a carpenter and Sarah was 23. There were no children listed. They came on the "Katherine Stewart Forbes". Their application number was 0945, Embarkment no 514.
  • Between November 1837 and 1840 Sarah Newitt and Thomas Bridgeman lived in George Street, Adelaide. According to South Australian directories he was a carpenter. While they lived in Adelaide their daughter Sussanah was born in 1837. She died aged 23, in Victoria.
  • Sometime before 1841 Thomas and Sarah moved to Melbourne where their son Alexander was born. Alexander and his sister Susannah, were baptized at St James Church of England in Melbourne.
    According to family hearsay Thomas was "the ship's carpenter on Lieutenant Hobson's ship, which sailed for New Zealand. He was believed to have piloted Hobson's ship into Auckland Harbour, because he had visited Auckland previously, and knew the channel in". William Hobson was Lieutenant Governor of New Zealand. He declared English sovereignty over New Zealand in 1840. Several days later he sent his ship HMS Britomart commanded by Owen Stanley to report on the establishment of a French settlement at Akakoa. Stanley raised the English flag at Akakoa on August 10, before the French disembarked. The following year, 1841, Stanley, in the HMS Britomart , was commissioned to carry out the first survey of Waitemata Harbour – where present day Auckland stands. Was this the ship on which Thomas Bridgeman made his way to New Zealand? Once Thomas had arrived in New Zealand, he decided to stay, leaving his wife and children in Melbourne. It is thought that Sarah married a Joseph Foster in 1853, believing she was a widow. Thomas may have jumped ship in order to remain in New Zealand. Thomas, by now 34, made his way to Nelson on the South Island.

  • At the age of 39 years, Sarah Newitt married Joseph Foster in 1853 in Victoria. It is possible this is not the same Sarah. The marriage certificate shows she was a widow.
