    1. [Fiji] Port Stephen

    3. Could anyone tell me if there was a place named PORT STEPHEN on any of the islands around 1850. I am trying to find the birth of Emma Crumrety/Cromarte born to William Crumrety/Cromarte and his wife Caralin(?) about 1854. I think William was Irish and Caralin was from one of the islands. Emma seems to have lived her life in Fiji, marrying John Alfred JOYCE on 31 July, 1878, having five children and only coming to North Queensland in 1896 where she took her life in 1899. Family story goes that she was very lonely and homesick. I have found all her children registered in Levuka, although they were (according to the European Census 1875) living at Wai Kava in Vanua Levu. Any help greatly appreciated.
