James Bamford (b 1822) & Jane Eastcott's children

Hi,

James and Jane had 6 children: Ellen; Jane; Louisa; George, Jane E and Henry.

A fair bit of research has been undertaken on all but Henry.

Henry's death certificate shows he was a bootmaker, and never married. He died in 1925 at age 59. His death certificate also shows he died in a mental hospital. He could have been a patient here f he was an invalid, or ....?

Does anyone have any further information on Henry Bamford?

Regards,

Jo

Welcome to the boards Joanne

Have you tried searching in the trees on here to see if anyone else has him?

Also was this in the UK?

Ok found a tree on ancestry and James was from Liverpool and Jane was from Cornwall but married in Australia

The tree also says Henry married Georgina Brett? and he died in 1901? but then they have all the siblings dying in 1901....so it probably is not correct anyway

There are a few people on here that have Henry born Redfern NSW 1865 are you in contact with them?

When you ask for help, it is vital that you give location details

NLA Trove - his brother who died the same year

The Sydney Morning Herald, Monday 18 May 1925
BAMFORD, -May 15, suddenly, at his residence, 432 Unwin's Bridge-road, Tempe, George Bamford, beloved husband of Frances Bamford, and father of George, Fannie, Doris, Percie, Maude, Millie, Archie, Edward, and Edna, aged 65 years. Interred Saturday 16th, at Woronora Cemetery.

His wife Frances died in 1928, aged 56.

Hy may have been institutionalised for some time and since he never married it is possible he had a disability of some sort.
