Information Journal.

Groom: Albert Edward BOTTRELL.
Birth place given as California Gully. (Suburb of Sandhurst)

Bride: Lena RICHES.
Birth place given as Donald.

Year married: 1896.
Place: Victoria, Australia.

Albert died 1914 in Eaglehawk, Victoria.
Age: 40 years.
Mother recorded as Mary Amelia BOTTRELL. Father unknown.

Birth note.
Albert was born 1872 in Eaglehawk, Victoria.
Mother named as Mary BOTTRELL. Father not recorded.

I'm not sure what become of Lena after Albert died.
The marriage index gave her birth place as Donald, but there is no record for her birth under this name. There is no death recorded for a Lena BOTTRELL and there is no second marriage recorded for her.

There was a death for a Kelina Agnes BOTTRELL that died in Eaglehawk in 1915, aged 44 years. Her parents were named as John RICHARDS and Margaret MACLAREN. I have a feeling this will be the death of Lena and the informant has given her father's name as RICHARDS and not RICHES. It's also possible her mother's maiden name of MACLAREN is also wrong.

Further searches of the birth records finds a Colina RICHES born in Colac, Victoria in 1873. The parents are named as John RICHES and Margaret MCLEOD. I think Colina RICHES may be the Lena RICHES married to Albert BOTTRELL in 1896, and will be the Kelina BOTTRELL that died in Eaglehawk in 1915 ... but I could be wrong.

Two children located Victorian records for Albert and Lena.

Journals are intended to assist new researchers locate family lines in Australia and should only be used as a guide for follow up research and record searches as intended. Due to spelling and informant errors appearing in the records, typo errors and my misreading of the records mistakes must be expected. Errors will be corrected when detected.
