Ann Sargeant is my GG Grandmother. She was born in County Armagh about 1830 (Source: Her daughter Lydia’s birth certificate). She married William Furnell on 14 May 1855 at St Pauls, Port Adelaide, Sth Australia. (Source: William and Ann’s marriage certificate). William Furnell was born in Havre, France, occupation Mariner. (Source: Lydia’s birth certificate). I do not know when Ann arrived in Australia but she might be the Anne Sargeant a passenger on the ship Tudor which arrived in Melbourne on 23 Jan 1854. I cannot find any record of Ann’s birth or christening in Armagh, Ireland. Ann and William had 8 children – Eliza Ann born 8 March 1856, William born 1858, Mary Ann born c.1859, Frederick Cudmore born Jan 1861, Lydia born 24 March 1863 at Emerald Hill Victoria (my G. Grandmother), Josephine Lucell born 1864, Samuel Irvine born 1866, and Margaret Ann born 1868. Ann Furnell (nee Sargeant) died in 1874 in Victoria. Her husband, William Furnell, died on 1 January 1883 in Geelong Goal. Lydia Furnell married William Thompson on 27 Dec 1882 at Emerald Hill, Victoria. They had 2 children, Albert James Thompson (my Grandfather) and Frederick Woodford Thompson. Lydia died in 1894 and William Thompson married Lydia’s sister, Margaret Ann Furnell in 1899.
Can anyone assist with further information regarding Ann Sargeant, William Furnell and their family.
