Everett of Hay
I am the great grandson of George and Emelia Everett (nee Radfer) who is believed to have been born in Koslin Prussia (now Poland) and migrated to Tasmania with her parents and siblings on the ship Victoria. Two years later she moved to Echuca where she married George Everett in Echuca and they had their first children at Torrumbarry Victoria. Emilia and George had a number of children namely Louisa, Walter Stanley, George Radfer, Richard Henry (my grandfather), Bertha, Alina J, Joseph Silverton, Charles and John. George R was born in Hillston NSW,Joseph in Carrathool NSW and the remainder believed to be in the Hay NSW district. It is also believed that some of the family lived in Cooronbong near Morrisett NSW and they were members of the Seventh Day Adventist Congregation. It is also believed that some of the children lived in the Wauchope/Port Macquarie area. Richard Henry Everett married Jane Elizabeth Josephine Pocock in Hay and had the following children, Minnie Josephine (m F Westwood), Dulsie Amelia Hope (m Arthur Stevens), Eunice Mary Ann Peace (m Basil Harvie), Florence Ruby (m H Miller), Richard Henry (m E Gizzard ), Lesley (m E Snow), Welbourne, Valerie Ada Lorraine (m L McLean), Valma Faith (m Allan Stevens) my parents, Herbert Munro O'Connor(m J), Athol, Maxwell (m N Williams)
It is believed that that Emilia/Emelia/Amelia was the second oldest and she had a sister older Bertha Fredericka who married Peter Voss. Emilia's parents were John and Johanna Radfer and according to Emilia/Amelia's marriage and naturalisation certificates her mother's maiden name was Johanna Fehlberg.
It is believed that George Everett was English, born in Liverpool (England) to Miles Everett and Rose Ann Blunt. There is also spectulation that there is some Spanish influence in this side of the family. Where Emilia first met George (?Echuca) is not known and when George arrived in Australia - how - when- where -why is also not known. Did Miles and Rose emmigrate to Australia?..
Any information would be welcome.
