Tilley -
2 families are listed by the Argus, Thomas jnr, his wife and family (2 sons) and Thomas Henry with his wife and family (7 children), the eldest 2 probably being the 2 Miss Tilley's named in the diary. Names and details of the families provided by Barry Tilley (bredanic@internode.on.net)
Ward  may have been Woods (Thomas Woods later married Elizabeth Tilley)

Webster Mr & family
only appears on this list so may be the man, Alex, who was travelling alone and disembarked in Melbourne. (Mrs. Webster & family went on to Adelaide)
Mr. Davis & wife
was probably Mr Thomas Davis and wife who were supposedly going on to Adelaide but only he was listed as arriving in SA. He was listed among the single men on the official list in Melbourne so it seems that there wasn't a wife.
