Holborow / Coleman Family - New South Wales, Australia and England

I would like to hear from anyone who has knowledge of the Holborow Family from New South Wales. This line lived around Kempsey. We have no history of the family and no photos of Richard or Clara and if any exist, it would be good to see a copy. We have names and dates but no family stories. It would be good to add some to our family.

Richard Holborow married Clara Coleborn (known as Clara Coleborn Teague - Clara was raised as the daughter of Robert Teague.)I have no knowledge of Clara's father.

Richard was possibly born 1862 in Oldbury on the Hill, Gloucestershire, England, the son of William Wraxall Holborow and Charlotte Payne / Paine. He died 30 Sep 1932 in Kempsey, New South Wales, Australia.

Clara was born 14 Apr 1876 Macleay River, Kempsey, New South Wales, Australia, died 10 Apr 1930 Kempsey, New South Wales, Australia. Her mother was Sophie Coleman. Sophie was born 1858 in Sydney, New South Wales.

Richard and Clara had nine children - Annie (Mrs Henry Baker), Dorothy (Mrs Eather), Mildred (Mrs Harold Victor Rowsell and I believe Mrs Victor Gaggetta), William born 1904 - no spouse listed, Grace (Mrs Duncan McLeay Fern), Alma (Mrs James William Perry),Wrex married Marjorie May Davey, Sophia 1915-1915, Richard married Minnie Kathleen Ford.

I hope that anyone who has any knowledge of the families listed above will take the time to contact me.
Thanks
Janice

Hannant Family - Queensland and England

I would like to hear from any descendants of Henry Hannant - (born Buxton Norfolk England 1826 - died Ipswich Queensland Australia 1910) and Jane Golding /Goulding - (born Middlesex England 1830 - died Hattonvale Queensland Australia 1902.

From a copy of Henry and Jane (Goulding) Hannant's marriage certificate the following information was found.
1852. Marriage solemnized at the District Church of St Peter in the Parish of Stepney in the County of Middlesex. Married on 27 June 1852, Henry Hannant, age 26, bachelor, his occupation - omnibus conductor, his residence at the time of marriage was 39 Wellington Place, his father is Richard Hannant and Richards rank or profession is a Tailor. Jane Goulding was 21, a spinster, her residence at the time of marriage was 39 Wellington Place, her father was John Goulding and he was a Pensioner. The witnesses were Henry Manning and Louisa Hopkins.

Henry and Jane had 11 children. Henry's parents were Richard Hannant - 1799-1881 and Charlotte Gooch - 1800-1875.
I believe Richards father is William Ward Hannant and his mother is Sarah Smith.

I would like to know if anyone has any information regarding (a newspaper article headed - Rosewood Pioneering Reminiscences by Kola Knut)In this article is a photo of Henry and Jane. I have a photocopy of a photocopy and would very much like to see the original article for a good copy of the photos. The photos were lent by a Mrs Hucker. I have never been able to locate anyone with a connection to a Mrs Hucker to find out if the photographs still exist.
Thank you
Janice
