I am looking for a John Thomas Keen born 1843 Bethnal Green Middlesex and his wife Sarah Emily born 1851 Regents Park St Pancras Middlesex with possibly a daughter Frances Mary Ann Keen born 1870 Pancras
it should be after 1870 and maybe 5/8/1875 on the Great Queensland ,Mayborough Queensland as thats when her sister went
thanks very much

Val, I've just had a quick look on the Queensland index but didn't find any matches for your names and dates. I have to go out now but could look again tomorrow.

This is a link to the Queensland site. Perhaps their names have been mistranscribed.

This is the passenger list of the Great Queensland, showing Frances and family, but there are no Keens on board:

Can't see them on the electoral roll. Are you absolutely sure the Keens went to Aus? Did Frances and family stay in Queensland?

hi Mary no Im not sure ,nobody can trace them in spite of there being loads on people researching the family, so wondered if they went with her sister ??? as its about that time they disappear thanks very much for looking.
The only clue I did have but have more or less ruled them out is a family in the USA in Maine
