WALLS IN NSW

Journal by WALLSD

John Walls,my ggrandfather was born in 1836 at Clackmannan, Scotland. He came to Australia in 1856 on the ship "Conway."

John married Mary Ann Green/e in 1865. They had several children: john, Hugh Benedict (my grandfather), Josephine, Isabella Julia, Daisy, Mary, Ernestine, William Arthur, James Patrick.

I have obtained numerous birth and marriage certificates. Associated surnames include: Williams, Colless, Gillett, Laverack, Haron, Falconer, Power.

Mary Ann Green/e's parents were William and Julia (nee Harty) Green/e. Some of Mary Ann's siblings were: John Joseph, Frances, Anna, Julia, Catherine, Bridget and Thomas. Associated surnames include: Lynch, Voss, Fitzgerald, Russell.

I'd really welcome contact from anyone who knows anything about my fathers Walls family.

Dear Deanne, Welcome. Can you elaborate more on your VOSS connections please?

What State did your WALLS family settle in Australia?

Thanks,
Alison (Qld).

Hi Alison

Catherine Greene married Henry Voss on 29/05/1873 in Gulgong NSW. I believe that they had the following children: Herbert W Voss, Arthur Voss, Ida Eveline Voss, Carl Frederick Voos, Henry Voss, Bertha and Anna Voss (all in the 1880s).

Most of the info came from the Mudgee and Gulgong Historical Societies.

My grandfather (Hugh Benedict Walls) was born in Gulgong 1878. I think he was the only one of his family who settled in Queensland.
Are we connected?

Regards
Deanne

Dear Deanne, Hi. Thank you very much for your quick response. I have three Henry Voss' in my family tree currently, and I do not have a spousal name for only one of them. And as he was born in 1897, this rules him out.

The children's Christian names of your Henry Voss and Catherine Greene seem familiar/similar to the ones in my tree. Perhaps there is a connection somewhere?

Good luck,
Alison.
