Further InformationFrom his time in Australia it would appear Isaac was a single man so the information in the 1861 census may not be pensioner Isaac Davis, alternately his wife may have decided not to leave Britain.
Isaac Davis was one of five pensioners who were sent to Roebuck Bay to find and bring to justice the killers of Messrs Harding, Panter and Goldwyer. In 1865 they were returning to Fremantle on the Emma when it was lost with all hands in 1867.
One of a group of men from the Enrolled Pensioner Force who perished on board “Emma” last heard of 3rd March 1867 on departure Port Walcott Western Australia
This man not named in Newspaper Articles although WO23/29 states this man was “Lost on Emma”.
