Joseph senior was a Master Mariner, born in England about 1801. His two eldest sons, Sam and Josh, became masters in sail.
Josh was also a shipwright (builder of ships) and attained the rank of mariner. Sam brought his Mother, sister and brothers to Australia and with Josh ran a trading service between Australia and New Zealand.
Josh built ships and Sam either sold them or sailed them in their trading business.
