Trying to confirm the parents of James COAD, born 1846, in Cornwall? UK.
Believe they are Edward COODE or COADE and Jane WILLOUGHBY, married in Kilkenny Ireland. Also trying to verify a connection between James COAD's parents and John WILLOUGHBY born circa 1854.
Jane WILLOUGHBY's father was John WILLOUGHBY (senior). A junior John WILLOUGBY, born circa 1854, labourer, migrated to South Australia on the ship TREVALYAN or TREVELYAN in 1875. Elizabeth NEWSOME migrated on the same ship. Elizabeth gave birth to John Henry NEWSOME in 1876 in Adelaide, the father was John WILLOUGHBY. The child was registered twice, under NEWSOME and WILLOUGHBY.
Elizabeth NEWSOME married James COAD in 1881?
One child was John BURGE, born August 1810, who may be our ancestor who migrated to South Australia in 1855, with wife Eliza SPRINGBETT and family Henry & Meshach BURGE.
James COAD, was born 1846, somewhere in Cornwall, UK. In 1865, a single man, age 19, he migrated to South Australia aboard the ship Burlington. He listed his British occupation as "miner". Eventually he settled at Inglewood, South Australia. He had a small farm/orchard. He died in 1896 and was buried in the Houghton cemetery in SA.
His wife was Elizabeth NEWSOME, who migrated from Yorkeshire, in 1875 on the ship Trevellyan. Her occupation was given as "domestic servant". They had 7 children together plus one child, John Henry Newsome, who was either Elizabeth's younger brother or son from a former relationship.
COAD appears to be a fairly common name in England. James started a new life and his own family tree in South Australia. There seems to be a common thread amongst several of our S.A. founding male ancestors that nothing is known of their parents although in most case there is fair bit of information regarding their wives'families.
Died 27/3/1888 at Lyndoch SA.

Known Facts, Tailor to Queen Victoria. Lived in North England industrial area. Apart from these facts, is the task of accurately pinpointing his parents and ancestry. He married Eliza SPRINGBETT in 1841, at Berkshire UK.
His wife was Eliza SPRINGBETT, her parents were John SPRINGBETT and Mary INGRAM, from Wiltshire, UK.
Eliza and John's children, wee born in Wiltshire UK, their name were Meshach and Henry John BURGE.
The family migrated to South Australia in 1850, aboard the ship Loevestein. They settled at Lyndoch South Australia and planted vineyards, which led to the BURGE family establishing a winery business, which was the beginnings of the winery business that their descendent, Grant BURGE owns and manages today.
