ELiza Kirk was born in 1847 Wisbech and gave birth to Gabriel in 1969, then Alred abt 1874 before marring George Ayre in 1875. In 1881, they are all living in Barton upon Humber with two daughters Ada and EMily. George dies in 1885 but I then cannot find ELiza in the 1891, 1901 or 1911 census. I believe she died in Cambridgehsire in 1928 as ELiza Kirk. I cannot find her on passenger lists or remarrying either. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can go from her? Her son Gabriel (my great grandfather, came to Australia in 1888, Thanks Elaine

Are you certain, Elaine, that Gabriel travelled alone when he emigrated?

Elaine

Elaine Report 13 Jan 2013 00:50

Hi Everyone

Thank you for your quick and comprehensive responses. In answer to Reggie's question re Gabriel travelling alone - I have been unable to evidence of any other member of the family travelling with him. Also, there are many family stories and photos stil around from soon after the time he arrived in Rockhampton and no mention of any siblings or parents. Gabriel married Lois Essex in Rockhampton in 1895 and many of the family lived to an old age and stayed in the area. My 92 year old Dad remembers Gabriel but no other family members. However, I still have not discounted the possibility. ELaine

HI Everyone again

My apologies for not including ELiza's middle name which is as you have found "Lowis" - I have also found some variations such as Lowess and Louis. The two ELiza Lowis Kirks in my family are the one born in 1968 with Gabriel as her eldest and later married to George Ayre (we know this from documents belonging to Gabriel Kirk) and her niece, Eliza Lowis Kirk, daughter of ELiza's brother John Lowis Kirk. Kirk seems to have been a common name around the area.

Thank you for finding Ada Ayre and Emily Ayre. That suggests to me that Eliza stayed in England. Just need to find nw when she died.
