Cherilyn Report 21 Jun 2007 03:03

Hi Sar Thanks for your message. I'm afraid I can't find a marriage or children to Henry and Alice. Are you sure they married? I did find son Wm Hy's marriage to Annie in Brisbane in 1885. They had 10 children, 1 died as a baby. At least 2 of their sons enlisted in WWI (George and Alfred); their dossiers are online at NAA RecordSearch. I have a marriage for son Percy (b. 1888), to Mary DOWLEY in 1911. Daughter Annie Flora (b. 1903) married someone named VALE; she died in Dec 2004. Let me know if you need all the children's birth details, maybe you have this. No deaths either sorry. Good luck Cherilyn :-)

Hi Cherilyn, I just want to thank you for all your time and effort in your searching, It has been much appreciated. I had quite a few 'Missing' Links, and you filled alot of those Spaces. Thanks once again Geoff Brown


Leslie Report 21 Jun 2007 05:06

Hi Cherilyn Thank you for all that, sorry late getting back to you..Had to help a friend get their car out of a creek crossing. Never cross in heavy I got Harriets surname from BDM. My mum in law remembered her first name and the surname had something to do with weather. Found one Fairweather at the Gunning cemetery and there was only one fairweather married to a Humphrey Thorn in any time period. I agree that Mary A must be John Thomas wife, and it is an informant error. Because that is when my mum in law was born and she remembers her mum telling her about it... Will have to order the death cert for John Thomas I am guessing. Cheers Leslie

Barbara Report 23 Jun 2007 13:21

Hi Cherilyn You tried to find someone for me the other week but had no success. I wonder if you could look for another member of the same family. His name is Paul J Daly and he was born in Liverpool in 1914. Having had no luck with the rest of the family I'm hoping there may be something on him, perhaps a marriage - even a death would be useful! Fingers crossed Barbara


Cherilyn Report 25 Jun 2007 09:19

Hi Barbara Sorry not much luck here either. Only possible death I found is in NSW in 2002 (makes him about 88); Paul DALY, formerly of Gorokan, died 30 Mar 2002. There are death notices in the Sydney Morning Herald and Newcastle Herald. If you go to http://www*rootsweb*com/~nswsdps/dpsindex*htm (replace * with .) there is a lookup request service on this page. Good luck Cherilyn


Barbara Report 27 Jun 2007 14:45

Thanks Cherilyn, I'l give it a try. Don't suppose it's worth looking in sevice records for WW2 as he would have been of conscription age. I've tried on the Australian records site but there's a fault and I can only get so far. Thanks again Barbara


Dianne Report 28 Jun 2007 12:58

Hi Cherilyn, thanks for the offer. Any info you may have would be much appreciated to learn more about my great uncle who deserted his ship, HMS Prometheus, in Sydney in 1907. He began a new life in Australia and had no further contact with his family in UK. I'm looking for details from the marriage entry in NSW of Horace John BENNETT & Ethel J ELLIOTT in 1907. Particularly interested to know what Horace's occupation was given as. Horace's place of birth is Wolverhampton, 1 March 1883. Also looking for any birth entries for children of Horace & Ethel in NSW. Don't know if there were any children. I came across a later marriage entry for Horace John BENNETT(can't remember date)still in NSW but couldn't find any death entry for Ethel. Can you provide confirmation of a death entry for Horace John BENNETT, aged 74 years, at Hornsby, NSW, 1957? Is this the same Horace John who married Ethel? Horace signed on with the Australian Navy in August 1914 and served throughout WW1, leaving Tingira training ship in 1919 with a very good character reference. Regards Di

Hi Dianne Sorry about the delay in replying. I'm afraid I don't have much to add here. There is a death as you say but no way to know it is the same Horace without actually ordering the certificate or using a transcription service. Also, I don't have access to the birth regs for the period you need. There is a birth of an Ethel Jemima ELLIOTT in 1880 to Robert Pinkney ELLIOTT and Louisa in Gundagai, NSW (reg 15546). Then a death for an Ethel Jemima BENNETT, daughter of Robert, in Auburn in 1941 (reg 8222). The marriage of Horace John in 1944 could actually be his son (ie Horace John jnr)...hard to know, without ordering it. Sorry I can't offer more. Good luck. Cherilyn


Elizabeth Report 29 Jun 2007 22:34

Hello Cherilyn.... I'm looking for the death (or anything) of my husband's gg grandfather. His name is Myles Kirkby Eyre ARIEL. Born 1819 in Bristol. He married Emilie Weaver and came to Australia in 1853 with Emilie and his three children, Emily, Myles and Richard. I can't find anything on him after that. I have the three children and Emily. Emily remarried in NSW in 1863 and the cert has her as a widow. I'm wondering if Myles was 'declared' dead. I have searched NSW and Qld and I have the AVRI.Most of the family settled in Qld. I think he may have gone back to England, but not sure. Thank you.

Hi Elizabeth Sorry but this man remains'd think with such an unusual name it would be easier! ;-) I hope you find him someday...maybe he died at sea? Cheers Cherilyn

dodsy Report 18 Jul 2007 09:07

Hi Cherilyn I hope you will be able to help me again with a member of my family. My rellie is William Peat born 1825 in Maulden Bedfordshire, parents Francis and Lucy. He was transported on the ship Marion 2 on 14 June 1845 to Tasmania. On completion of his seven years sentence I think I have him leaving Tasmania for Melbourne in Dec 1851 on the ship Shamrock. Also on the same ship is another William Peat who was born in the colonies and I wondered if this could be his son. However no female Peat was on this ship and I could not find a record of a marriage in the 'permission to marry index' either so maybe this is completely unconnected. I would love to find out what happened to him once he arrived in Melbourne and am keeping my fingers crossed you can find something about him somewhere. Many thanks Wendy

Hi I am looking for the marriage of Harold George Salmon and Dora Ellevsen, possibly in Toowoomba, Qld. regards gina


Cherilyn Report 20 Jul 2007 01:55

Hi Wendy Sorry no trace of William. It is possible he chnaged his name, which makes it near impossible! Hope you track him down someday! :-) Cheers Cherilyn ______________________________________________ Hi Gina Sorry no sign of Harold's marriage. Could it have been after 1914? Records are still closed after that year. Good luck and happy hunting. Cheers Cherilyn
