Thomas Burr and Frances Ann De Quinemont

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Ros Report 28 Oct 2012 07:30

Thomas Burr c1814 - 1866 born Wokingham, England, died Melbourne, Australia
Surveyor, explorer, mine manager.
Married Frances Ann De Quinemont arrived South Australia Dec 1839 aboard Cleveland, to post of Deputy Surveyor General, with 2 daughters.
Three or four more children were born. In c1856 only 2 had survived, one Jane Anne nee Burr Sinnett and sister Isabel.
I am interested to trace descendants of Isabel Florence(?) Burr or Jane Anne Sinnett seeking contacts?
I am also trying to trace the origins of Frances Ann De Quinemont, possibly born in London,c 1810-18.

What were the names (and ages) of the daughters who travelled with them?

I would have thought that the wife was more likely to have been of French origin

Having checked on Ancestry, the only two instances of de Quinemont are a man who married and died in France, and another about whom there is info in Quebec ( the predominantly French province of Canada)
