JEREMIAH LANDER, his wife Miriam and his four children Jemima Tomes Lander, Julia Lander, James Lander and George William Lander arrived in Sydney 21/10/1854 aboard the "Anglo Saxon". They originated from the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset where the Lander family has lived since the early 1600s. Jemima married Moses Corben and Julia married George Robert Keats who both came from Purbeck. James drowned, at age 10, in a waterhole in Chisholm's Paddock, near Redfern NSW. George (my Great Grandfather) became an alderman and mayor of Redfern and was a member of the board of the first "Metropolitan Board of Water Supply and Sewerage" of Sydney.
