Journal by allycat

Nicholas VIPOND born June 1861 Whitehaven, Cumbria, England married in 1885 at Patricks Plain, NSW Australia (Registration No.6960/1885) to Sarah Ann ELWEN born c1860, died 1928 Singleton NSW (Reg.No.14622/1928). Click on Australian Cemeteries Index and search for VIPOND to see their burial details with MIs.
His parents names: Thomas VIPOND b1835 Alston, Cumbria, England and Mary Ann ANDERSON born 1841 Middleton, Durham, England.
Her parents names: John ELWEN and Elizabeth unknown.

In trying to stretch family tree out further by locating father of Nicholas VIPOND namely Thomas VIPOND, I experienced a bit of difficulty as follows, because there are two distinct separate families around about the same time, both with children named Thomas (sigh). And Lead Mining - what a dreadful occupation that must have been.

Are you still looking for information on the ancestors of Thomas VIPOND and Mary ANDERSON?

Hi David here is my 2 cents worth from N.Z.

In 1980's I had a Snr Ranger who was in charge of all the Wild Animal Control(W.A.C.,E.F.) People who worked in the N,Z.Native Bush in what was known at the time as the Eastern Bay Of Plenty.(E.B.O.P.)For the old N.Z.Forest Service,which was closed down back in 1987.
He was a well known and well liked kind of a chap,with a big heart,I would have walked on fire for this chap. He was one of a few.
He had been in the Merchant Navy during W.W.2.
The only name I new him by was Harry Vipond who had a wife,1 daughter & 1 Son.
Around the roar of 1986 (winter time) while on duty in the bush he was shot and killed by accident.
Poor Harry was buried in the R.S.A.Cemetery in Rotorua, near where he and others trained many off us at F.R.I.
If Harry had lived he would be around 85 today.
