Hi Cherilyn,

I hope you can help. I am looking for 2 brothers John Wynne Teagle b 1816 & Smith Teagleb 1821 who were both transported to Australia in 1843 on the Maitland. Their parents were Thomas Teagle and Barbara Wynne they were from Broughton , Buckinghamshire. On Trove I saw a marriage of Johns daughter in Tasmania.

Thank you

Hi Liz

This shows John Wynne TEAGLE d. 1874 Hamilton, Tas.

Both were sent to Norfolk Island on Lady Franklin.

The above site has their indent records etc (page 174).

Shows John was 28 and Smith 24, both Protestant; John was married with 2 children and Smith was single. They were charged on 11/3/1843 at Beford assizes with stealing a watch and 5 shillings. They each received 21 years (how harsh is that, don't even get that for rape or murder these days!). John's wife shown as Mary, mother Barbara, brother George and sister Mary (if I am reading it right).; native place Broughton, Bucks. Both received reports of good character.

But you probably knew all that...still looking...!

Hi Cherilyn
Please could you see if you can find any record of a Bertram Hope arriving in Sydney NSW. He was born in Carlisle Cumberland England in 1854 and married an Amy Toogood in Sydney in 1885 and died in 1894, presumably Sydney! He does not appear in any censuses in UK so could have emmigrated when quite young.

Thanks for all that Cherilyn. That's brilliant. Don't know why I keep having relatives that leave no trace of getting to Australia!! Very frustrating!!
Bertram's mother was called Marianne Castle, although I have seen it written as Mary Ann several times. I don't think any other family member came with him. I have just discovered about him actually as I came across a descendent of his via ancestry and I contacted her. Apparently he had been ' thrown out ' of the family but they do not know much about him. Sounds like my Airy relative from the same time period!!
I'll pass your info on. I don't know how much she knows.
Thanks for looking.

Hello Cherilyn,

Thank you so very much for the above links and information. There was so much more information there that I did not know. I did find Smith Teagle's marriage in 1852 which was under Teagle Smith. I will look at the other links that you have given me. You are a gem!!

So very much appreciated

Thank you so much for your very kind offer
I am looking for the death of Herbert Harril Babbage.
Ancestry shows him in several census of Australia up
to 1940's but I do not have worldwide membership so
cannot see the entries. He was born in England around

Hi Vicky

Sorry no luck with this one.



Irene Report 6 May 2011 13:49

Thank you so very much for the interesting information
you gave me re Hebert Harril Babbage. He was uncle to
my Aunt's mother(Clarissa Babbage) I as doing some research
for my Aunt by marriage who is almost 86. Herbert came
from large family so I am sure he had lots of relations who
would have loved his medals. Thank you so very much for
finding out this for me very much appreciated. Irene
