WAYMOUTH Josiah married Susan FARRELL 1868

Journal by tonkin

Information Journal.

Groom: Josiah Henry WAYMOUTH
Birth place: Given as Cornwall.

Bride: Susan Jane FARRELL
Birth place: Given as Victoria.

Year married: 1868.
Place: Victoria, Australia.

Josiah died 1918 in Malvern West, Victoria.
Age: 74 years.
Parents named as Bryant WAYMOUTH and Martha unknown.

Cornwall baptism records show a Josiah Henry WAYMONTH (sic) baptised in Helston, Cornwall, in 1844.
Parents named as Byant and Martha WAYMONTH. I expect this will be the baptism of Josiah.

Josiah's second marriage and children to Sara HILL recorded below.

Susan died 1894 in Alexandra, Victoria.
Age: 45 years.
Parents named as Henry Charles FARRELL and Jane THOMAS.

The birth records tell me Susan Jane FARRELL was born 1850 in Carlshrue, Victoria. (I think this was the earlier name for Kyneton) Her father was named as Henry Charles FARRELL, but her mother was only recorded by her first name of Jane. The marriage records tell me Henry married a Jane NIXON in 1841. It appears this was a second marriage for Jane and her maiden name may have been THOMPSON, and not THOMAS, as recorded by the death index.

Five children located Victorian records for Josiah and Susan FARRELL.


Susan Edith WAYMOUTH. *
Born: circa 1869 Wangaratta, Victoria. (Birth not located)

Age: 31 years.

Married 1: Henry Christian JEE.

Married 2: Thomas GRAHAM.
Year: 1897.

Note. Susan's marriage to Thomas GRAHAM was recorded twice.
Once under LEE and once under TEE, but not under JEE.

Age: 62 years.


Blanche Eleanor WAYMOUTH.
Born: 1878 Smythes Dale, Victoria.
Died: 1953 Parkville, Victoria.
Age: 75 years.

* Susan's birth not located. I found Susan in the death records with parents named as Josiah WAYMOUTH and Susan FARRELL. Susan and Henry had the one child, Edith Waymouth JEE, born/died 1892 in Alexandra, Victoria. I have not located the death for Henry JEE.

Josiah's second marriage.

Josiah WAYMOUTH remarried in 1897 to Sara HILL.

Sara died 1898 in Alexandra, Victoria.
Age: 41 years.
Parents named as William Hill and Letitia HUGHES.
Birth place given as Co Monaghan.

Two children located Victorian records for Josiah and Sarah.


Susan Edith WAYMOUTH. *
Born: 1897 Wangaratta, Victoria.
Died: -


Sarah Fanny WAYMOUTH.
Born: 1898 Alexandra, Victoria.
Died: -

* Susan's mother was recorded as Susan Jane FARRELL. It would appear the informant registering the birth was a bit confused and named Josiah's first wife as the mother. It would be interesting to know the name of the informant.

Bryant and Martha Waymouth are my great, great, great grandparents. Their child Sarah Fanny Waymouth married Edmund Fletcher Gilles in 1864 and their fourth child was Herbert Woodley Gilles. Herbert married Laura Muriel Hinchcliff and the elder of their two children, Gwendoline Muriel Gilles, is my paternal grandmother.

I have been doing some work on the Waymouth family and have some info you may find interesting. I have located the death of Sara Hill in 1898, the year after Sarah Fanny was born. I have also located Josiah Henry's will in the PROV database in North Melbourne. I'm not sure I can send these to you via this medium but if you send me an email at [email protected] I can send you back some data. I have also found Bryant and Martha's grave in St Kilda and have photos of this.
