FLETCHER George and Emily TONKIN

Journal by tonkin

Information & Research Journal.

Children of George FLETCHER and Emily Jane TONKIN.

Married: 1866 Victoria Australia.

Marriage note - The marriage index records Emily's maiden name as TOMKINS. The VBI also records Emily's maiden name as TONKIN and TONKINS. TONKIN seems to be the correct spelling. The VMI records Emily's birth place as Cornwall, but I have not been able to locate her birth with the details supplied at death.

George died 1887 in Matlock, Victoria, aged 48 years. Parents recorded as Josiah FLETCHER and Anne BIRD.

Emily died 1932 in Woods Point, Victoria, aged 85 years. Parents recorded as William Ackland YONKIN (sic) and Jane unknown.

This is what I'm trying to find out Lynda. Some researchers say there is a connection to my line, but I have not been able to locate the missing link.

Emily's parents have been named as William Auckland TONKIN and Jane unknown. I have a feeling this information may not be correct.

My research indicates Emily Jane was baptised as 'Emily Jane Gilbert TONKIN' in St Buryan, Cornwall, in 1846, and is the base child of Jane TONKIN. This of course has not been confirmed.

I'm now trying to find out a few more details about this Jane TONKIN. I still have a few more records to search so may come up with something.
