HUNT – This Hunt family mainly lived in Surrey, England. The line I am researching begins with Charles and his wife Jane. Charles was born in Norwood in 1842; he was a house painter all of his working life it appears. Jane was born in 1843 in Reading or possibly Lambath?
Between them Chalres & Jane had nine children: Emily Hunt (b: 1861), Florence Hunt (b: 1864), Alice Hunt (b: 1866), Rose Minnie Hunt (b: 1868), Charles Herbert Hunt (b: 1873), Ellen (Helena Margaret) Hunt (b: 1875), Frank Hunt (b: 1878), Thomas W. Hunt (b: 1880) & Rose Hunt (b: 1885). It appears that the first daughter Rose the family called Minnie, and so they had another daughter which they called Rose.
Rose Minnie Hunt married James Edgar Knox Gibbons. I know very little about the other children, but would like to find out.
GIBBONS – This Gibbons line originated in Canada so far. John Gibbons was born in 1867 in Canada, but I don’t know where exactly. His mother was named Ellen, and she was born in 1821 in Montreal, West Canada. The earliest record I have of him in England in on the 1861 census, where he is married to Mary, who was born in Devon, Plymouth, England in 1866. John is listed as being a Solicitor’s clerk, and later as a Police Sergeant. They family were living in Surrey mostly, but in 1901 were in Wandsworth.
John & Mary had four children: James Edgar Knox Gibbons (b: 1871), Mary Caroline Gibbons (b: 1873), Julian/John Gibbons (b: 1878 ) & Helen (Ellen) Gibbons (b: 1880).
James married Rose Minnie Hunt, but I don’t know about the other children. I would like to find out what happened to James’ siblings, and where John came from in Canada.
I found a brother of John's, Thomas Gibbons who was born in 1851 in Scotland. But I have not been able to locate their father, or anything else about this family.
Can you help me?
RICKETTS – This Ricketts family begins so far with Thomas & Sarah who had a son Richard, born in 1838 in Worcestor, England. I would like to find out more about Richard’s parents if possible and any siblings he had. I would also like to know anything I can about Richard’s children.
Richard married Elizabeth Ann Ivell, who was born in 1842 in Middlesex, London. Richard & Elizabeth had nine children who were mostly born in the Birmingham area. The children were: Benjamin Ricketts (b: 1864), Mary Ricketts (b: 1867), Richard W. H. Ricketts (b: 1871), Lillian I. Ricketts (b: 1872), Herbert J. Ricketts (b: 1876), Charles Ricketts (b: 1878), Gertrude P. Ricketts (b: 1880), Kate A. Ricketts (b: 1881) & Annie Ricketts (b: 1883).
SHARP – The Sharp family I am researching originates so far from Haltwhistle, Northumberland, England. The line begins with Thomas Sharp who was born in 1836. I believe his fathers name was also Thomas, but know nothing more.
Thomas married Rachel Ann Brown in 1870 at Lofthouse, Northumberland. They had eight children before Rachel died in 1886. Thomas then remarried to Elizabeth Ann Harris and they had another two sons.
Thomas’s children were: Charles E. Sharp (b: 1865), Ann Elizabeth Sharp (b: 1866), Edward Thomas Sharp (b: 1872), Frances J. Sharp (b: 1874), Florence M. Sharp (b: 1876 –twin), John Sharp (b: 1876-twin), Clara M. L. Sharp (b: 1877), William R. Sharp (b: 1887) & Frederick Thomas Sharp (b: 1889).
I would like to find out what happened to all of these children, and identify who Thomas’ parents were.
Edward Thomas Sharp married Kathleen Rose Gibbons, and they moved to Australia with their children.
COGGINS – I know very little about this Coggins family. The name appears to be spelt sometimes as Coggings. Mary Jane Coggins was born in 1861 in London, and she married William James Webb, and they had three children; Michael, Florence & Eliza.
Mary’s father was Richard Coggins, he was born in Bristol in England in 1823.
WEBB – The Webb family I have been researching is rather confusing. It begins with William James Webb who has listed his year of birth as 1851 and place of birth as London, England on the 1891 census, but then in 1901, he has listed his year of birth as 1853 and the place as Turnbridge, Kent. However, I do know that he married Mary Jane Coggins (Coggings) and they had three children: Michael, Florence & Eliza.
I would like to find out what happened to these three children as well as unravel the mystery behind William and his birth.
FLOOD – This Flood family came from Hampshire in England. The line I am researching begins with George who was born in 1815, and his son George H. Flood, who was born in 1845 in Southampton.
George H. Flood married Matilda who was born in 1848 in Southampton also. They had four children that I know of: George Henry Flood (b: 1870), William Bishop Flood (b: 1872), Thomas Scott Flood (b: 1876) & Frederick J. Flood (b: 1878).
I know that Frederick J. Flood married Mary Georgina Macey. But I do not know what happened to the rest of the children, and I would like to. I would also like to find out a little more about George and his father.
HULL – This Hull family line originated in Childesoakford, Carshalton, Surrey, England, with George Hull who was the third son of Thomas & Rose Hull. The children of Thomas & Rose were: Thomas, Joseph, George, James, Rose, Mary & Sarah.
George Hull married Anna Munro and they moved to Australia in 1818, first going to Sydney and then to Tasmania, with their two eldest children. This Hull family made a significant name for themselves in Tasmania and some of the line later moved to South Australia and Victoria.
I would be very keen to find out what happened to all of Thomas and Rose’s children.
