The Lawlers of - Lucknow and Orange NSW Australia - about 1800-1880s

Query by lostlawlers

My father Brian b:1927, only son of Leslie Lawler d:1933.
This branch of the Lawler family was sadly torn apart by
death of Leslie unexpectedly at the age of 37 years.
Most of the family are deceased and whom are left of that
generation will not speak about the era.
I am the eldest daugther of Brian Lawler. Dad would not
talk about his family at all, whether it be pain or hatred
I will never know. I have just received some information
lately, Leslie Lawler's father was Edward Garrett Lawler
and Leslie's mother was Alice Henriette (nee Astill of Orange).
Edward Garrett Lawler was born about 1867 Lucknow NSW, he was named
after his father Edward Lawler a miner in Lucknow NSW.
Edward the Miner was partnered with Anne (nee Madden).
I am looking for any information about the Lawlers, I find it
hard to believe that there were no brothers or sisters
of the Edward the Miner or Edward Garrett Lawler who went on to be
a horse trainer.
Any help is always greatfully accepted.
Thank you for your time.
Shelleen.

I have no idea if any of this is relevant but I'll lay it out anyway.

There was also a John Garrett Lawler (publican at Narromine) his father was Garrett and mother Fanny, nee Riley. Garrett and Fanny married in 1867 in Orange. He was the centre of a much publicised divorce from Emma Victoria Morgan back in 1903.
He was born in Orange in 1875. He died on 27 February 1930. He had a brother Francis and a sister Frances. John Garrett Lawler had just the one son called Martin Garrett Lawler. It probably doesn't relate I think there may be a connection being born in Orange. &c.also share a burial site with Edward d:1927

I think these 3 are Annie Madden's

Thank you Janilyn.
Your information certainly does weave it's way around my family,
but does pose a question.
According to my marriage certifcate for Edward Garrett & Alice H. Astill
Edward & Ann (Madden) were parents of Edward Garrett.
Which makes a Question of
1. why were John Garrett and Edward interred together
2. no known birth records for Edward Garrett abt. 1867-8.
or any marriage details for Edward & Ann Madden.
3. were Garret(who married 1867 Faney) and Edward(interred with John) brothers?
4. really jumping to weird conclusions - perhaps
a- Edward Garrett born to John's wife but lived with Edward & Ann Madden as
their son,perhaps Edward was the real father.
The wonderies of Family History, just as well that I like a good puzzle.
Thank you again for help, you have given me a lot of details I didnot have
and confirmation for many more.
Regards
Shelleen
