Death of CAUSON brothers from Cranham
On 10 Sep 1849 just 17 days after their arrival in Adelaide, Edwin's two brothers, Charles and James CAUSON were passengers on a small cutter bound for Melbourne, the Thompsons, which was shipwrecked in a heavy gale about 3 miles south of Guichen Bay, off Robe (south of Adelaide). They were two of nine shepherds of the South Australian Company who perished. Twenty-one souls in all were lost, including the Captain Frederick Wilkinson, his wife Elizabeth and child Sarah, the mate, 3 seamen and a boy and other passengers. There were no survivors and the ship was totally wrecked. So that was the tragic fate of two young lads from the village of Cranham. Accounts of the wreck of the cutter Thompsons can be found in the South Australian Mining Journal 22 Sep 1849, The Adelaide Times 24 Sep 1849, and the South Australian Gazette and Mining Journal 4 Oct 1849.
