Nicholas John Old and Grace Ann Hooper

Nicholas John Old and Grace Ann Hooper were married in Melbourne in 1874. MRN 1562. Though it says Launceston on the Pioneers CD. SO not sure about the location.

Children born to the couple were-
Mary Ann born 1877. BRN 21756.
Martha 1879 at Dookie. BRN 8630.
William John 1881 at Devenish. BRN 15698.
Emily Cadelia 1883 at Devenish. BRN 15778.
Lavinia Sophia 1885 at Devenish. BRN 17036.
Theophilus Samson 1887 at Devenish. BRN 18944.
Gertura Ivy Theresa 1889 at Devenish. BRN 11659.
James Henry 1891 at Devenish. BRN 22127.
Olive Daisy Grace 1893 at Devenish. BRN 3021.

Lives of the children are as follows-

Mary Ann Old married Frederick William Berthun at Devenish in 1901 MRN 5864.

They went on to have three children - William John born 1902,
George Raymond 1904,
Daisy Lavenia 1906.
All were born in Wangaratta.

Though on the listing it shows the father of Daisy as being Albert Edward Berthun not Frederick William Berthun. Which is very strange.

Lavinia Sophia Old married John Beggs at Boxwood in 1909. MRN 9048

William John Old married Mary Elizabeth Beggs in the same year and place. MRN 7415

This might be a case of a brother and sister marrying a sister and brother.

Gertura Ivy Theresa had a son Albert in Ballarat East in 1917.

Theophilus Samson married Cath Annie Church in Devenish in 1914. MRN 88. They had daughters Lillian Grace b 1914, Iris Cath b 1917 and Mavis Jean b 1920.

Charles Jonas Clark and Ann Powell

Charles Jonas Clark was born in England 20th September 1829 to Benjamin Thomas Clark and Anne Leaford Shuker.

Charles married Elizabeth Tolliday in 1853 and they had one daughter Jane when they migrated to Australia with Elizabeth's mother Jane, sister Christiana and two brothers William and John Curtis in 1855.

Charles and Elizabeth went onto have 9 other children born in Australia. Elizabeth passed away in 1874.

Charles married Ann Powell in 1892. More details to come I hope.

Charles died on September 20th 1892, (his 63rd birthday)at Scarsdale, Victoria. He was buried at the Smythesdale cemetery on September 24th 1892.

More research to do, as I didn't realise until today that he had remarried. He wasn't married to Ann Powell for long as the marriage was in 1892 and he died the same year.

Organising to get a photo of the gravestone for Charles Jonas from the cemetery in Victoria. Here is hoping.

Benjamin Thomas Clark and Ruth Butterworth

Benjamin Clark was born on 29th February 1799 at Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England. He was Christened on 24th March 1799 at St Peters in Cambridge. He was the son of Benjamin Thomas Clark and Elizabeth Eusden Bell.

Ruth was born 23rd April 1817 at Middleton Parish Middleton, Lancashire, England. She was Christened on 10th August 1817. She was the daughter of James Butterworth and Mary Fielding

Ruth married Benjamin Thomas Clark on 28th June 1857, seven months after her first husband John Briggs died in November 1856. She had five surviving children when she married Benjamin.

Ruth and Ben had one daughter Lavinia Alice Clark(e) born the following year 2nd June 1858 in Salt Lake City. Lavinia died in November 1860. (2 years 5 months old)

They were married less than three years when Ruth died on 4th August 1860. She left behind five children from her first marriage ranging from 24 years of age to just five years old.

Benjamin had 4 children with his second wife Ann Southwell. Two of the children were born whilst he was married to Ruth.

It seems he was married to them both at the same time.

I found an interesting fact whilst collating this information.

James Briggs son of Ruth Butterworth and John Briggs married Caroline Clark daughter of Benjamin Thomas Clark and Ann Leaford Shuker. James and Caroline were both 20 when they married on 29th April 1965.

So James married his mums new husbands daughter from his first marriage. Therefore his stepfathers daughter. No blood relation.

Benjamin married for the 4th time to Martha Larkins on 28/4/1866.

Benjamin died the following year on 4th November 1867 at Sugarhouse in Salt Lake City. He is buried at the Salt Lake Cemetery.

Ruth Butterworth and John Briggs

Ruth was born 23rd April 1817 at Middleton, Lancashire, England. She was Christened on 10th August 1817. She was the daughter of James Butterworth and Mary Fielding.

Her first marriage was to John Briggs. They had seven children all born in England. The family migrated to America sometime after that last child was born in August 1855 and November 1856. Records show that her husband John and two of the children died in the same month of November 1856. Some illness must have befallen the family.

She married Benjamin Thomas Clark seven months later on 28th June 1857. They had one daughter Lavinia Alice Clark(e) born 2nd June 1858 in Salt Lake City. Lavinia died in November 1860. (aged 2 years 5 months old)

They were married less than three years when she died on 4th August 1860. Leaving her family of five ranging from 24 years to just 5 years.

Did Benjamin and his wife Ann Southwell care for the younger Briggs children? Or did the eldest daughter Eliza and or Sarah raise them.

Ann Southwell had two more children Ellen born 1857 and Charles 1859 with Benjamin whilst he was married to Ruth from 1857 to 1860.

Was he married to both women at the same time?

I have four journals on Benjamin Thomas Clark.

1. with Ann Shuker
2. with Ann Southwell
3. with Ruth Butterworth
4. with Marth Larkins


Benjamin Thomas Clark died at Sugarhouse in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA on 4th November 1867. He was buried at the Salt Lake Cemetery in November 1867.

Ann Southwell died in 1887, 30 years after Benjamin passed away

Marriages
Ann Shuker 25/9/1820

Benjamin Thomas Clark and Martha Larkins (4th wife)

Martha Larkins was born on 15th April 1822 in Cambridge, England.
At some stage she has migrated to Utah, USA

I have no records of her parents at this stage. I do not know if she had been married before nor had any children previously.

She married Benjamin Thomas Clark on 28th April 1866.

There are no records of any children from this union.

Martha would have been 44 years old and Benjamin was 67 in 1866.
He died one year and nine months after he married Martha.

Benjamin Thomas Clark died at Sugarhouse in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA on 4th November 1867. He was buried at the Salt Lake Cemetery in November 1867.

At this time I do not have any more details on Martha.
