Thomas BANNER & Mary Ann WEBSTER

Journal by lynniegirl

Good evening,

I need a little help I am trying to find a bit more information about Thomas Banner and Mary Jane Webster I am told by a family member that they had no children of there own, now I have been doing a bit of searching but I have come up with different parents to the family member
This is the information I have

Thomas Banner Birth 1847 Death 16/1/1929 Aged 82
Mother: Ann Lewis Father: Richard George Banner
Mary Ann Webster Birth 24/3/1855 Death 1932 Aged 78
Mother: Mary Ann Mills Father: Henry Matthew Webster, on the Victoria Death CD I have only name was Matthew Webster but her mother was the same.

I have them married in London in 1876, well that's what the Disc told me, but was told they married in Natimuk in 1876

Its getting late, now I am totally confused

They are both buried in the Geelong Eastern Cemetery so decided to take a trip there and find them, was hoping to read the plague, but to my horror its an old grave and no names or dates only BANNER written on it, but found out by online data that they are both buried there.

Thank you ashepard,

For this information since posting this I have came across a bit more as well, their parents had 9 children Thomas begin the second youngest all from Kent in England as far as I can figure out Thomas & Mary had no children, somehow I would like to link Thomas to Sarah Ann Banner
But will I hope
As far as ordering Birth, Marriages & Deaths, not sure how to but have a girlfriend who brought me Family Tree Maker and she is also doing her tree, and know she has ordered them over the net, so might need a lesson, tried it ages ago but couldn't do it

I should have added this before, Elizabeth Ann Banner, Thomas's sister married James McConkey they had a daughter Mary Jane McConkey b1867 d1914 whose husband if she had one is unknown they had a daughter Sarah Ann Banner b1884 d1982 who married John Flurrence Golding b1872 d1944 Sarah Ann had a Brother William James McConkey b1890 d1891 read into that what you will.

Elizabeth Ann Banner had a second husband Joseph Thwaites, they had a daughter Frances Banner Thwaites

Mary Jane McConkeys siblings were Richard Banner McConkey b1868 d1882, Elizabeth McConkey b1894 d1978, and Agnes Ann McConkey ?

Thank you eljay,
My grandfather Charles Albert Golding was one of John and Sarah's children
Thanks you for this.
Also not sure if you can help I have Family Tree Maker on my computer how is it best to make sure nothing is lost I have it download to my external hard drive but to print it our never know what part too. So far I am lucky as when I updated my computer the CD of Family Tree Marker when on with no problems

Which version of familytreemaker do you have ? Do you have a tree on ? is it linked ? If it is, it is saved on both sites. If you keep clicking save on familytreemaker at the end of each session it will always be up to date. You could also save it as a gedcom file on a memory stick.
I have the 2012 version which has a tab called Publish, click on this and a panel will open, click on collection. Down the left side will appear a number of choices. Open each one in turn and decide which you one(s) you want to print off.

You can also create books from here and the program will collate it all for you Hope this helps. come back if want any more help.

Just a further note on Allan John Webster, i have been told by my Aunt that he often camped in the bush behind their house at Manangatang and her Mother, my grandmother would take him food from time to time Her name was Elanor (Lena) Maude Ryan nee Golding she was his cousin, Eleanors father was John Francis Golding, His sister Catherine was Allans mother, just a little anecdote that might be of interest to some.
If anyone ever finds more information on Allan John Webster or his supposed brother Alexander John Golding i would be pleased to see it, i suspect they may be the same person at this point, and that the name might actually be Alexander Allan Golding, but that's another story with no proof whatsoever.

I forgot to mention that in Catherine Webster nee Goldings Obituary their is no mention of an Alexander.
