This website largely covers "Pentecost Families" from Truro/Creed, Cornwall, England.  It includes 
coverage of Pentecost families who have emmigrated to:
a) Australia and New Zealand - immigration dates include: 1849, 1887/1888 and others 
b) the USA in 1845. 
(Note: to date: the site includes "4 separate branches" of NZ/Australia Pentecost's ... as yet I have 
been unable to connect the 4 branches).

line that immigrated to NSW & Qld, Australia. Also a Navy Commander that immigrated to Boston, 
Massachusetts, USA.

Branch four: the "William Pentecost b. 1750" branch from Truro, Cornwall England (colour - red).
This branch includes my G Grandfather "Edward James Wellington Pentecost b.1864" (known as Edward 
James Pentecost). 

Lines of the 'William Pentecost b. 1750" (branch 3) include family who immigrated to:
a) Brisbane,Australia in 1887/1888, and Hastings, New Zealand in 1902/1903;

My G.Grandfather "Edward James Wellington Pentecost" was born 1864 in Truro, Cornwall, England.  
Edward James Pentecost married Elizabeth Caroline Heard 1883 in Truro, Cornwall,England.
They had two children, Richard John Nathaniel and Mable Jane, in Truro before departing for Brisbane, 
Australia in 1887/1888. 

The Journey of the Edward James Pentecost and Elizabeth Caroline Heard: 

Edward James Pentecost b.1864 Truro, Cornwall emigrated to Brisbane, Australia in 1887 & his 
wife Elizabeth Caroline Heard followed with their 2 children in 1888. They settled in the 
Indooroopilly/Toowong/Mogill areas of Brisbane, Qld, Australia.
Edward James was a dairyman/carpenter-builder by trade and also sold livestock and vehicles (back then 
horse and buggy) with the Penhaligon brothers. 
Edward James and Caroline Heard had four more children while residing in Qld, Australia - my 
Grandfather Edward Thomas and his brother Sydney James, unfortunately two other sons died while 

Edward James emigrated from Australia and settled in Hastings, New Zealand in 1902. His family, 
Elizabeth Caroline Heard (wife) with 3 children, followed in 1903.
