Welcome Maree50.

I noticed a few marriages for a Joseph JARVIS in W.A.

Would save a bit of time if you know the name of Joseph's wife.

Cheers.

Joseph's wife is Selena d.19.1.1883. I think Joseph was a pensioner Guard.

Thank-you so much for your information. Joseph Jarvis is my Great Grandfather. My Grandmother was his daughter Edith. I know only that she met my Grandfather in W.A. Had two children there and returned to N.S.W. and had my Mother and three others. Does anyone know about where he came from. I know nothing about my Great Grandmother Selena. Thank-you janilye.

Hi Janilye, Thanks for all your help. My mother was Annie Wilce. I have done some family tree on the Wilce side, but just did not know where to start with my Grandmother's side (Jarvis/Peters). My mother said that Selina was a lot younger then Joseph. My Grandmother would have been about 3 years old when she died. Thanks again for giving me your time. Regards . Maree.

DEATH.

Name: Bridget Catherine JARVIS.
Died: 1966 Perth district, Western Australia.
Age: 99 years. *
Father: Timothy.
Mother: Bridget.
Ref: Registry of Deaths, Western Australia. Reg #3080.

BURIAL.

Age: 92 years.
Buried: Karrakatta Cemetery, Western Australia.
Area: Roman Catholic.
Section: PC.
Gravesite: 0288.

Bridget's age recorded in the cemetery records of 92 years apppears to be correct. Her age recorded as 99 years in the Death Register must be a typo or informant error.

Note Bridget's second given name of Catherine.
The correct spelling may be Katherine, aka Kate.

by janilye on 2013-05-16 00:03:26

Yes tonkin it is an error Bridget was 93 when she died.
The children of Henry Samuel Jarvis and Bridget Buckley were:-
Norman Henry Jarvis 1911 1979 m. Hilda DOUST. and John Jarvis 1916 XXXX
However, Henry had a previous relationship with Mary Jane Wales PARKER 1870-1945 and this produced 2 children, Howard Samuel Parker 1892 1942. and George Edmund Parker 1895 1963. Mary Parker went on to marry Thomas? Ingram.

Thanks to Janilye and Tonkin for this info. I don't know how you guys Do this. I feel a little slow. You both got so much in such short time and I have nothing to share thanks once again. Regards Maree50.

by janilye on 2013-05-16 20:22:56

Indeed tonkin's access to registrations is invaluable to us all.
You don't need to share Maree50 tonkin and I are not related.
These are the children of Ellen Jarvis and John Fitzpatrick married in Fremantle in 1879.-FITZPATRICK JOHN Male JARVIS ELLEN Female FREMANTLE 4699 1879.

One of the above should hold clues as to his/her grandparents. I find the more names you acquire in a family tree the better the chance of finding an elusive relative.
Selina FITZPATRICK married Vernon Wakeham Goode CAPORN 1884 1954 in 1909
CAPORN VERNON W G Male FITZPATRICK SELINA Female CANNING 7 1909
Selena died on the 7th February 1913
CAPORN SELINA Female PERTH 79 1913
The West Australian, Perth, WA. Saturday 15 February 1913
The funeral of the late Mrs. Selina Caporn, wife of Mr. Vernon Caporn, of Queen's Park, took place on Monday morning, and was largely attended. The cortege moved from Messrs. Bowra and O'Dea's private mortuary, and proceeded to the Roman Catholic Cemetery, at Karrakatta, where the remains were interred, the Rev. Father Thos. Masterson conducting the burial service. The chief mourners were Mr. V. Caporn (husband), Mr. and Mrs. J. Fitzpatrick (father and mother), Mrs. J. O'Shea, Mirs. H. Richards, Mrs. E. C. Smith, Miss Francis Fitzpatrick, and Miss Doris Fitzpatrick (sisters), Messrs. John, Frederick Percy, Arthur, and Augustus Fitzpatrick (brothers), Messrs, F. and J. Fitzpatrick, and A. Caporn (uncles), Mr. W. Caporn (father-in-law), Messrs. Wilfred and Lewis Caporn (brothers-in-law), and Mesdames F. and J. Fitzpatrick (aunts). The pall-bearers were Messrs. S. Brown (C.R., A.O.F., Court Perseverance, No. 8068), H. Henson, F. Bridgwood, N. Tennant, W. Cole, and J. Gilbert (Court Perseverance A.O.F.). The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Messrs. Bowra and O'Dea.

The above funeral notice shows us that Ellen JARVIS FITZPATRICK was still living in 1913, thereby narrowing the search for her.
This is the only Ellen I found, searching from 1913 up to 1971
FITZPATRICK ELLEN M Female PERTH 989 1928
The West Australian Perth, WA. Saturday 23 June 1928
FITZPATRICK. On June 22, 1928, at West Leederville, Ellen Mary, the dearly beloved wife of John Fitzpatrick, of Welshpool, fond mother of (Annie), Mrs. J. O'Shea, of Sydney, John, of Armadale, Fred of Cannington, Arthur, Percy and Gus, of Welshpool, (Nellie) Mrs. T. T. Smith, of Carnarvon, (Maudie) Mrs. H. Riches, of Bunbury, (Frances) Mrs. A. Hansen, of Belmont and (Dollie) Mrs, W. Benton, of Victoria Park: aged 65 years. R.I.P.
Ellen is also buried at Karrakatta. (Catholic)
Unfortunately no obituary but this shows Ellen was born c.1863 but not where. John Fitzpatrick was a Bootmaker of Welshpool later moved to Stirling Street, Perth, where he was knocked down by a car and died at the Perth Hospital on the 14 June 1939 age 78. buried at Karrakatta (Catholic)

'Ngairedith' in here, has the cemetery lists for Karrakatta I'm sure she can help you out there.
Anyway, you're well on your way to having your own tree and possibly the 1st Joseph Jarvis 1830-1908 tree.

(I think Selina Peters was born in Capetown about 1843)

Dear Maree50

I have posted some information from my own family tree research here.

http://cybernetic3starmediaclippings.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/joseph-jarvis-born-1830.html

[the link is just a convenient one for me to use for this purpose]

My connection is via Selina Frances, wife of H H Clemens, mother of Harry, Victor and Arthur Clemens. Died 1 February 1956, aged 88 years.

Unfortunately I know very little of the links back beyond this to South Africa (although I have emailed a friend there to see if anything turns up).

Hope it helps your own searching etc.

Hi, Just wondering if anyone on this thread knows any information on John Fitzpatrick who married Ellen Jarvis? In particular, where he was born. There are so many John Fitzpatrick's and it's hard to find the right one. He is my husband's great, great, great grandfather. Any help to be pointed in the right direction is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
