Hi
Thank you for your reply and apologies for my tardy response. Am in hospital with a shattered ankle and have only just seen this message. One of the things i am trying to find out is how and when he cam to Australia. There is some talk he came with his mother as v young child which may make sense as his father died about a year after hi birth in cornwall. I
cannot verify and can find no evidence of an arrival at any age. I assume he came by ship but don't know. His mother may also have married again so that throws another angle. I dont really know - am just trying to think of any possibilities. Francis married an Emily/ Margaret Allen- father Duke Thomas Allen, in Australia. cannot verify marr date from here but think it was around 1873/4. My grandfather - the eldest child, was born at McGuigans Lead, registration district Parkes,NSW Australia in 1875. All i know of whete they lived is from where subsequent chilred wete born but dont have that info to hand here
Apologies for any format etc errors, am doing this from my phone
Many thanks
Trish Fallen

Bride: Margaret Sarah ALLEN.
Year married: 1874.
Place: Parkes district, New South Wales.

Registration number: 2346/1874.

Took a bit of time to find the marriage because the spelling of HINGSTON was recorded under HINGETON.
