Whelan / Marsh

I am looking for the details of James Leonard Whelan, born 1880, Hamilton, Tasmainia.

He married Gladys Issell in 1911.

His Father James born in 1860 in England or Ireland.

He married Emma Marsh 1878 in Hamilton, Tasmania.

Hope you can help with my research, cheers Rick.

William Breen / Mary Nicholls

I am tracing (for a friend) his family tree.

All I know is that his great grand father William Breen was born in Hobart, Tasmania in 1848.

He married Mary Anne Nicholls in Hobart, Tasmania in 1876.

Her parents were convicts: James Nicholls and Margaret (nee Leary)

William and Mary had a son, Walter Leslie born in Hobart in 1881.

Walter married Violet Emily Knott in New Zealand in 1912.

I know most of the family details after that marriage, so I want to know about Walter's father, William.

All about William's parent's details.

Hope you can help, cheers Rick Silverwood.

William Silverwood / home adresses from 1848 to 1851.

Hello, I am trying to find out where William and Elizabeth's lived after they married on 6th August 1848 at Cathedral Church of St. Marys, Manchester.

On 1851 Cenus night they were living at Settle, North Yorkshire (occupation: schoolmaster) with son William Henry, born 9th Nov 1849, in Liverpool.

***LOOKS LIKE THEY COULD HAVE BEEN LIVING IN LIVERPOOL BEFORE AND AFTER 1849.

Is there any directories or records that will have that address details.

Hope you can help, cheers Rick Silverwood.

William Silverwood dies at sea on the way to Australia.

My great grand father William Silverwwod, a school master, with his wife Elizabeth (nee Lewis) and their son William Henry and daughter Eleanor Jane set sail on the ship "the Queen" to Melbourne , Australia in Feb 1853.

Unfortunately, William becomes very ill and dies on board and is buried on 1st April 1853 at Sulawesi Tengah, Indonesia.

Now a widow, Elizabeth decides to continue her journey to Melbourne with her 2 young children.

Arriving in Melbourne on 27th April 1853.

Again she is confronted with another tragedy, her 22 month old daughter Eleanor becomes ill and dies in October the same year.

The happy news is that a man she has befriended John Boreland Dobie, both decide to marry in December 1853.


Both settling in Melbourne to start a new life with William Henry.
