GRAVETT William married Frances CHAPPELL 1892

Journal by tonkin

Information & Research Journal.

William GRAVETT and Frances Jane CHAPPELL
were married in Victoria in 1892.

William, recorded as William Frank GRAVETT, died 1896 in Coburg, Victoria,
aged 29 years.
Father recorded as William GRAVETT. Mother not recorded.

In the comment section below Grub names William's parents as Thomas GRAVETT and Harriett DELASALLE. There was a William Frank GRAVETT born in Rosedale, Victoria, in 1866 to the same parents so this will be him.

When married William's birth place was recorded as Dandenong, Victoria, but I expect he will be the same William married to Frances in 1892, as birth places often vary in the marriage records.

Frances died 1934 in Box Hill, Victoria, aged 66 years.
Parents recorded as George Seneca CHAPPELL and Clara ALLOTT.

Frances remarried in 1897 to William Job GIBBS.

William died 1929 in Balwyn, Victoria, aged 67 years.
Parents named as William GIBBS and Honor GIBBS.
William's birth place given as London.

Two children located Victorian records for William GRAVETT and Frances.

My records indicate that Wiliam George Cecil married Clara Grace Emma COOPER in 1920 in Geelong.

William Frank was the son of my gr grandparents Thomas Gravett and Harriet Delasalle, and sister to my grandmother Violet.

You are correct, and I thank you for bringing this to my attention. I can see where I made the silly error and have now corrected my post.

We all make errors, and it's always good to compare notes with another researcher. Family Tree Circles allow us to do this. It's all about learning and trying to help other people.

Thank you again Grub ... corrections are always welcome.

Hi Tonkin
I wasn't being picky...just wanted to make sure that I had the correct information.
Kind regards,

Hi Tonkin,
Frances married William Job Gibbs in 1897 Toora, Victoria. They had 1 son and 3 daughters. Also I think COOPER should be HOOPER.
