RICHARD SOUTHEE 1804 Kent, England to 1873 Victoria, Australia - via St Petersburg
Dr Richard Southee was born in 1804 In Bekesbourne, Kent, England.
His parents were John Southee and Charlotte Brice.
The Doctor and his wife Martha Hatfield had two children:
Martha Amelia born 1831, and Richard Brice born 1838 and christened Richard Brice John Elistrateff SOUTHEE at the British Chaplaincy in St. Petersburg, Russia on 15th May 1846.
Dr Richard Southee is mentioned a few times on the net as born in 1799 - this is incorrect.
He arrived in Melbourne on the 25th December 1851.
Was in Castlemaine in 1854 and Forest Creek in 1857.
He died in Marjorca - 172km NW of Melbourne on 12th June 1873
I would like to know more of his parents, his siblings and why his son was christened in Russia - was he also born there?
Who was his wife Martha Hatfield, where did they marry and where were his children born?
