Francie has been a Family Tree Circles member since Mar 2009. is researching the following names: RYAN, CONNORS, CURRAN and 5 other(s).
This is excellent work Francie. I had come to dead end in trying to find out who the real father of Ernest Augustus Curran was as I could find no birth or death notices in Australia
My grand mother is Amelia Louisa Curran (1874-1961), daughter of Ernest Augustus Curran and Lavinia R Brooker
The only clue I had was that the many of the family had changed their surname or middle names to Slade so I guessed this was the father of the illegitimate EAS Curran11. Im not sure how or when they found out their father was illegitimate but it may have been on the death of the father or mother as they were claiming the Slade name well and truly by the early 1900s
I can give u lots of references regarding our Curran/Slade ancestors!
I even have a few pics which I can give to you if you are interested.
Last year i visited Maunsel House Somerset and meet Sir Ben Slade the 7th Bt. and gain further information, he allowed me to take a pic of the most hated man in Australia EAS1 lol!. He has just given me permission to publish, I also have found two further females and another male who EAS1 fathered, the ? Offical marriage no record found produced a daughter some of her lot are in Sydney! The other two children one lived in London but interestingly the other female ended up in Geelong Vic and married a Graizer of some wealth, I have always wonder if EAS11 and her very meet?
I do not have much on our own Mary Anne Curran she is mysterious but believe she did marry in the end. It is interesting that after EAS11 death his children were told, my own Uncle who is 80 now but me on the right track as he knew there was a name change, but we didnot expect such a exciting result, I was hoping maybe convict but discovered the lot more on both Curran/Slades.
i would love to talk with you to see if we maybe able to help each other further our knowledge of our ancestors. I am on facebook under Fran Ellingsen if you want to make contact.
Firstly let me apologize for this slow response, as I only do this stuff when I can, which is not often due to work and family etc but I was thrilled to see your reply today
Enough of the excuses. I tried to find you on FB but no luck under a general search for Fran Ellingsen. I am there too under Ian Wilson in Bali
After trying a few different free data bases Im now using Family Tree Maker 11 but have not published online yet but Im close, maybe will try tonite?
BTW my Grand Mother is a daughter of EAS 11 and LRB that you don't show on your sites. Her name is Amelia Louisa Curran and she was born 1873 in Victoria and d 1962
I would love to see any pics and info you have and I can send you scanned certificates too if you need them a a pic or two but I don't have much in that area
Looking forward to hearing from you again
Cheers too, Ian
