I know of a few HAYDEN clans in early Melbourne. If you can supply a few names and dates, and the info you are seeking, will have a look at my collection and see if I can assist with your research.
And thanks for the info on Leo.
Emma Julia Hayden married William Rostron Whitehead d 1933 owned Whitehead Bros general Store Charters Towers in 1880s see Trove for exam results of his sons Lionel Roland Gerald
You mean Emma Julia HAYDON married to William Royston WHITEHEAD in 1873,
the parents of Leo. I found some old research notes with a few details on the family and will have another look at the records today.
Emma was born in London, but I don't have any details about her parents.
Will get back to you later.
Sorry, that was William Roston WHITEHEAD.
Noticed my error after I hit Submit.
I have posted a few details on the HAYDON family for you. The correct spelling is HAYDON and not HAYDEN. William's second given name is Rostron and not Roston as I stated. ROSTRON was William's mother's maiden name.
I'm doing some research on the ROYSTON name and I confused myself with the name ROSTON and ROSTRON.
Hope this helps for now.
I can't recall what happened to the Whitehead Family History written 20 years ago by a lady whose ancestor was Williams uncle Robert Whitehead. Elizabeth rostron eloped & was married secretly under her mothers maiden name Pickup. This made the gossip column of course in the Melbourne newspaper
I know Elizabeth PICKUP married Joseph WHITEHEAD in 1843, and was then named as Elizabeth ROSTRON in the birth registrations of their children. This explains a few things because I expected PICKUP must have been Elizabeth's first married name.
When Elizabeth died in 1893 her parents were named as Laurence ROSTRON and Elizabeth 'unknown' and there was no mention of the name PICKUP.
Thanks for the good oil on Elizabeth.
