Thank you Debbie.

I hope it will serve as a guide line for your research. Always good to get a kick start when first starting out. If you would like to add a few more details to assist other researchers please feel free to do so.

I am great grand-daughter of William Hook and Nell Blackmore and back in the early 1980s, my mother was sent a lot of information about the children of James and Anna, which surprisingly a New Zealand descendant on the Blackmore side had fleshed out long before I contacted him in 2008. He gave me everything he had about the early Hooks before passing away in Sept 2009 leaving a family tree with over 8000 names on it for his grand-daughters.

Anna Hudson was born about 1831 in Merton, Surrey, England to George Hudson and Anna Barnett.

b. 12 May 1856

I am a g'son of Amelia Hook and like those of you interested in this family, have been researching for a few years. Extra info I can pass on is:-

ANNA WINTLE HOOK d 1911 in Sth Melb

ELIZABETH HOOK married THOMAS CHARLES HALES in 1875 in Vict, poss Creswick or Echuca
d 1912 in Northcote

ELLEN HOOK m CHARLES LEVI BOWER in 1882 in St Paul's, Melb They had 3 children before Ellen left for San Francisco in 1890, and Chas divorced her in 1900. No further info has been found for Ellen. Chas was the brother of Jane F Bower and remarried after the divorce.

The family of DANIEL HOOK and HANNAH/ANNA WINTLE. They had 10 children:-

ELIZABETH b abt 1816 in Gloucestershire, married ROBERT HAWKES MILLIGAN in 1836 in Lambeth, Surrey. She died in 1841 or 1847 (not ascertained yet) and Robert remarried in 1849. They had 3 or 4 children.

MARY b abt 1818 in Gloucs, d 1902 in Richmond, Vict. She married John Tuley Satchell in 1955 in Vict. They had no children.

ANN b abt 1820 in Dartford, Kent. no further info known.

ELLEN b abt 1821 in Dartford. No further info known.

JANE b abt 1823 in Gravesend, Kent. Married HENRY WINTER in 1847 in St Mary, Lambeth, Surrey. Jane died in 1909 in Richmond, Vict. and they had 7 children, all born in England.

JAMES b 1824 in Gravesend. Other info noted previously or above.

WILLIAM WINTLE HOOK b 1826 in Gravesend, d 1833 in Lambeth.

JOHN b 1828 in Lambeth, died 1914 in Sth Melb. Married JANE ILES at St John's, Creswick in 1860 and had separated within a couple of years, with Jane remarrying in 1868. John and Jane had no children.

AMELIA b 1830 in Lambeth. No further info known.

LUKE b 1831 in Lambeth, d 1835 in Lambeth.

Father DANIEL died in 1837 in Lambeth, and HANNAH came to Vict with Mary and John in 1854. Hannah died in Creswick in 1875 and John had a fine headstone erected for her. Son James had preceded them in 1853 and dtr Jane followed with her children in 1865. Still chasing Jane's husband but looks like he came out separately in 1864.

Most of this detail has come from BDMs Vict and Eng, immigrant listings and news articles in the Argus and the Creswick advertiser, as well as some from mydogphoebe that has cleared up one or two uncertainties.

Hope this is useful,

Garry Clough

Your input is very much appreciated.

Ooops! Mary Hook married John Tuley Satchell in 1855. 1955 could suggest a match made in heaven!
