Janilye – re William (Cudmore) FURNELL, from curlycor
The profile you saw on my ‘curlycor’ journal was out of date. I have now updated the profile. I did not realize when I deleted the former profile I had also deleted your comment. Please go into my new profile to see the changes I have made. William’s obituary refers to my Great Great Grandfather William Cudmore FURNELL. My relative in Canberra, Australia (surname FURNELL) and I have been exchanging information about the FURNELL Family for some years. We cannot find any christening records in Ireland for William, but think he was born in Limerick City. However, we have found that Michael Cudmore FURNELL was christened in Dublin on 8 July 29, at St. Andrews Church, parents Samuel and Marie FURNELL. Michael’s death notice in The Age, Melbourne newspaper, dated 25 July 1888 say he had 2 brothers, the late Samuel and William, the latter living in South Melbourne. We think William Cudmore FURNELL may be related to Michael and Samuel. We did not know that a William FURNELL was the captain of the steam-tug ‘Young Australian’ from 1855. I have looked on the internet and have found a picture of the tug but not who the captains were. Do you have any information about this?
