Note. The spelling of NANKERVIS appeared as "NEKERVIS" in the marriage records. I have used the spelling of the name as it appeared in the records so as not to confuse anyone.

Henry's death not located.

Ann died 1887 in Daylesford, Victoria, aged 55 years. Parents recorded as Thomas WALLIS and Ann TREMBATH.

Looking at the Cornwall records I would say Ann will be the Nanny WALLIS baptised in Madron, Cornwall in 1832 to parents Thomas WALLIS and Ann TREMBATH, married in Sancreed, Cornwall in 1831.

Henry and Ann's first child was born in Cornwall and recorded as NEKERVIS. Their children born in Australia were recorded as NANKERVIS.
