BDM Queensland Index Search

I had a look at the historical records of Queensland online and didn't find any OUGHTON families listed whatsoever. Perhaps the surname was spelled differently? It's also a good idea to check the NSW bdms and I think I found your family.

NSW Registrar of Births, Deaths & Marriages

Possible children:-

1893 Percy (Percival) George OUGHTON born Ashfield NSW parents Henry & Marian died 1970 Liverpool (mother listed as 'Marrian')
1895 Ernest William Henry OUGHTON born Ashfield NSW parents Henry & Marian died 1972 Bankstown (mother 'Marrian')
1901 Henry H. OUGHTON born Sydney NSW parents Henry & Mary A. died 1903 Glebe NSW
1906 Charles S. OUGHTON born Sydney NSW parents Henry & Mary A.

In 1911 Groom William J. MORGAN married Bride Lillian E. OUGHTON at Glebe NSW.

Hi again,

I see 4 births in Queensland to Henry & Mary Ann or Marian (Britton).

1881/C8581 Lilian Oughton. F: Henry, M: Marian Britton.
1885/C6210 Charlotte May Oughton. F: Henery, M: Mary Ann Britton.
1888/C7775 Florence Rachel Oughton. F: Henry, M: Mary Ann Britton.
1887/C7020 Albert Edward Oughton. F: Henry, M: Mary Ann Britton.

There is a death in NSW in 1911 for a Henry Oughton.
1911 NSW Reg 4023.
F: William, M: Rachel F.

The Sydney Morning Herald 3rd April 1914 page 10, has a couple of In Memoriam Notices for a Henry Oughton who died on April 3rd 1911 and one is place by his daughter Florrie. This probably is Florence who was born in Queensland in 1888 which adds to allycat's post earlier.

hello Lindashaw I see you have had other replies .

On Familysearch.org. their is the following

their son v
Henry OUGHTON DIED 31ST MAY 1911 -- m- v


( no date given )

Charlotte Oughton -b- 1885 - NSW - Australia -d- NSW Australia
( no date given )

Florence Oughton -b- 1887 "" " -d- " ( no date given

Lillian Oughton - b- 1893- " " -d- 1978 - NSW Australia

Ernest Oughton -b- 1897 " " -d- NSW Austrlia ( no date

Charles Oughton -b- 1906 " -d-( no date given
NSW Australia

These records can sometimes be inaccurrate . These look the part . I also think the original surname may be " Houghton " as the name only appears to go back to an " Adulphus Oughton " Warwickshire - Eng 1625
from then on not very much of that surname showing . Their is also a
William Oughton -b- 28th Aug 1886 Wellington nz -d- 2nd Aug 1938 Nz
Ok . hope it helps you. You have come to a great website . If you find any more could be helpful to put it on this website to possibly help others . Good hunting - Regards - edmondsallan
