Hubert PERFECT and Annie GOODE were married in Adelong, New South Wales in 1890 as you stated, but the other details do not appear to be correct.

There was a Hubert PERFECT died in Adelong in 1923, and we have Ann PERFECT that died in Adelong in 1946. Her parents were named as John and Louisa. I expect this will be the couple you are looking for.

I'm unable to locate a birth for Ann in the N.S.W. records.

May I ask where you obtained Ann's birth and death details from?

by Fiona68 on 2011-08-20 01:32:36

Thank you for your response.

I was given this information from a 2nd cousin and have already found a few wrong years, but has given me a bit of a base to work on.

Yes I see if Annie had died in 1975 like I had been told she would have been 104 by my information. Sorry I don't know where they got it from.

I got the marriage from bdm.nsw website.

Do you have any more information on Annies parents?

I have Hubert's parents as John Perfect and Anne Goldspink her parents as Jonathon Goldspink (from England) and Margaret Reid. If you have any information on them that would be great too.

If you look at the 1954 Electoral roll you'll notice that Hubert is still living in the family home in Tumut St., Adelong with son Jonathan and 'Grace' she was John Victoria's wife Grace Cheetham.
Just the 3 of them.

Thank you so much. It's starting to make more sense.

Thank you Janilye ... you sure have saved me a lot of work in the way of typing out information for Fiona. Will ask the boss to put a few extra dollars in your pay check next week!

I agree with Janilye that Ann's parentss were John GOODE and Louisa DODD. There is no marriage record for them in Victoria, but they did have a daughter named Sarah, born in Melbourne in 1854. After Sarah's birth they packed the wagon and moved to New South Wales. They had another daughter, Ann, born in Tumut in 1858. I'm sure this will be your Ann married to Hubert PERFECT in 1890.

The above information supplied by Janilye, bless her heart, is much the same as I have located, and I think we must be on the right track.

Let us know what you think.

nsw.bdm Marriage
V1851151 80/1851 PARFET JOHN GOLDSPINK ANN PV This marriage was registered in Tumut with Parfet = error

John was a convict who arrived on the Theresa sentence was 15 years and on his convict application to marry his name is spelt PERFECT
they married at the presbyterian church by C F Brigstock John PERFECT died at Cootamundra on 14 May 1910.
I'm not sure of the full story about Annie Goldspink she'd been born in the colony on the 19 December 1832 daughter of Jonathan GOLDSPINK 1807-1876 and Margaret REID 1806-1898
Annie and John Perfect separated sometime in the 1870s because she had two boys to somebody else, a man named Thomas CONQUIST 1833-1906 he was supposedly of negro decent. You can look into that. Also I saw a reference to her committing suicide but I didn't see any proof.

nsw.bdm DEATHS

Children of John PERFECT and ANN, nee GOLDSPINK;
12801/1860 PERFECT HERBERT JOHN ANN TUMUT NO HUBERT but I think this is him

Thanks Tonkin and Janilye.
This is all fitting in well with what I have but the dates I had been given are wrong, and had already found a few wrong one, not so bad when they are only a year or 2 out, but some are a bit more than that.

Janilye - I had wondered if Annie and John had split as she seemed to disappear, but I can't find information on Thomas CONQUIST either.

Am I right in thinking that Annies GOLDSPINK's mother Margaret REID was a full aborginal? You also say that Annie GOLDSPINK was born in the colony on 19 December. What was the name of the colony?

Yes I agree with Herbert and Hubert being the same person as I seen references to either spelling.

I am researching Edwin Last who had a relationship with Annie Goode (can't find a marriage in NSW but on Edwin's death certificate it states they were married in Albury in 1870). They had the following children born in NSW:
1. Edwin b. Grenfell 1877 d. 1877 Grefell
2. Unnamed b.Forbes 1878 d. 1878 Forbes
3. Rosa Ellen b. 1879 Forbes d. 1881 Hillston
4. Albert E. b. 1881 Hillston d. 1882 Grenfell
5. Alfred b. Cobar 1882 d. Cobar 1882
Edwin Last also died in Cobar on 17.03.1882, Albert and Alfred died after Edwin. Edwin was also married to Margaret Gaskell in Stawell in Victoria in 1867. She was still living and later remarried. Any thoughts?

by Fiona68 on 2011-12-17 20:26:27

Hi rossuth
Interesting - I have just had a little look but also can't find a record of marriage.
I see children to Edwin Last and Annie. I note they all died as babies/infants, do you know why? I am afraid I can't help with any information myself as I didn't know about this marriage. But any information you have about Annie would be appreciated. I don't surpose you have an age she was married? As if this is the one and the same she would have been married extremely young.

Margaret LAST remarried in Victoria in 1876 to Alexander SHERRIFF.

Margaret died 1924 in Footscray, Victoria, aged 72 years. Parents recorded as William LAST and Mary RILEY.

The informant made an error with Margaret's father being named LAST. This should have been GASKELL. It appears to me the informant only knew Margaret by the name she was married under.

When the births of Margaret and Alexander's children were registered Margaret was also recorded as LAST a few times, but someone got it right in the end and she was recorded as GASKELL.

I have the birth details of their children here somewhere. If you want them I will go through my old research notes.

Hope this helps.

Thankyou both for replying. I have all the information on Margaret's marriage to my g. grandfather, Alexander and their children with the exception of Thomas Edward, who does not appear on the other birth certificates as 1st born, only appears on the death certificate. We have no information at this stage of who he really was.

Fiona I do not have any information on Annie, only came across her when I was researching Edwin's death. Without the death certificates for the children I can only presume that they were either failure to thrive or had a severe infection. Edwin's occupation on his death certificate was listed as "Hawker"and as they moved about I would immagine that money would have been scarce and life tough.

Will keep digging! Cheers, Ros
