Heather Report 3 Jul 2006 08:04

Hello Kerri, Thanks for a great offer. I am looking for the death of Charlotte Carne, (nee Howard) b-1854 Collingwood Vic. Have a feeling she may have gone to W.A. but Vital Records may still be a bit early. Would you mind also looking for the death of Mary Howard in Collingwood...probably 1852, and in her twenties I would think. Thanks Heather

Jacqui Report 3 Jul 2006 19:25

Hi Kerri Wow thats great thank you very much. Will PM you re the childrens records. Thanks again Jacqui

Hi Kerry, thanks for the great offer. Could you please search a marriage for me i am not sure where for: Catherine Drumm born in Ireland around 1832. I think that she moved to Australia around late 1850's early to mid 1860's so she could have married between then. There was a marriage for a Catharine Drumm in Tasmania in 1881, but i later found out that this was not the right match. Thanks very much Stephanie.


Brenda Report 4 Jul 2006 00:37

Hi Kerrie - I have come to a dead end. My Great Grandfather & GGrandmother (Henry Wilmot & Jane nee Lidbury) ex Somerset UK, sailed to Australia between 1851 and 1855 when a son, Henry William Wilmot was born in Victoria (I think) This was my G/Father. I have some info on Henry William, but cannot find anything on Henry & Jane - The ship the dates, and death dates and where. Also if they had any further children. Believe they had another child prior to marrying in UK. Any info would be v much appreciated. A relation of Jane in UK is also anxious for any info on Jane. Thank you, Kerrie. Brenda O'Toole nee Wilmot

Hi Kerrie What great resources! I volunteer at the local FHL in Qld and have a lady who is hitting a brick wall. Could you please help by looking for marriage about 1850 +/- 5 yrs for Edward Hawse/Haws/Hawes to Emma Richards in Victoria. They had a child born abt 1852 in Victoria she thinks. Thanks for the generous offer. Cheers Janet


Dan Report 4 Jul 2006 06:52

Hi Kerri Thanks for the kind offer. Wonder if you can help me out with a Bourke family from VIC please? On a birth cert I have: Patrick BOURKE born 1860 in Wangaratta - father John BOURKE born c1820 in Tipperary - mother Margaret Bourke nee Briant (aka Ryan, Obrien and Bryant) born c1835 in Tipperary. Other children recorded are: ? Alexander born c1853, Ellen born c 1856, Mary born c1857, Patrick infant deceased John and Margaret were married in 1852. I am not sure when they died but believe it was pre 1902 nor do I have details of their arrival into Australia. I belive John died pre 1902 as I have their son Francis Patrick (Patrick? shown above born 1860?) married to Adelaide Ortloff in NSW and his fathers name is given as Francis Patrick BOURKE deceased (though I think this must be the same person as I cannot find any other match, his mothers name is shown as Anne Ryan). Any help greatly appreciated. With thanks Danielle


Heather Report 4 Jul 2006 07:43

Hi Kerri, Thanks for that, appreciate your time. Now, if I'm not being too greedy could I ask you to look for the deaths of Mary and Thomas James Howard's children in 1852. They were John & Mary. It would help solve a mystery. Heather
