Francois William Balcam (1819-1900), who emigrated to Victoria, Australia, with his young family in 1863, was born in St Helier, Jersey on 12 December 1819.

Although there are conflicting versions of his ancestry, it seems most likely (Source: 2x great-grandson William Balcam's family tree at Rootsweb) that his parents were Jean Thomas Balcam and Marie Le Cras. Other sources show him as the son of Francois Bertram and Anne Renouf, but this couple were from a much earlier generation (see family tree below).

Francois William Balcam marred Anne Romeril, daughter of John Romeril and Mary Hair, in Jersey on 18 June 1843. Their daughter Anna Matilda was born on 8 October 1846, followed by another daughter, Clara, on 8 December 1850, and son Francis Walter on 16 August 1851. Francis Walter is shown in some Balcam trees as Francis William.

The family emigrated to Australia on the Naval Reserve, arriving in March 1864. It is possible that Francois' mother Marie and one or more of his sisters travelled with them, but records are unclear
