becdean don't shoot the messenger,I know you will disagree with number 6. Not a Mary Brown in sight. I'm working on that. Jan
no i certainly wont shoot you Jan - there are a lot of Shuttleworths in Victoria thats for sure. My head is spinning trying to read that.
The information i had collated showed Thomas Richmond SHUTTLEWORTH (1832-1913) marrying Mary BROWN in 1860 in Victoria. They had 8 chidren:
1. Charles Henry SHUTTLEWORTH (1862-1942)
2) Alexander SHUTTLEWORTH (1864-1923)
3)Thomas SHUTTLEWORTH (1866-1952)
4) James SHUTTLEWORTH (1868-1872)
5) Richmond SHUTTLEWORTH (1868-1945)
6) Grace Elizabeth SHUTTLEWORTH (1873-1937)
7) John James Brown SHUTTLEWORTH (1875-1943)
8)Margaret Ellen SHUTTLEWORTH (1878-1885)
He then married Martha SINCOCK in 1878 in Footscray and had a further 5 children:
1)Thomas George SHUTTLEWORTH (1879-1953)
2) Jame Everet SHUTTLEWORTH (1880-1942)
3)Frederick William SHUTTLeWORTH (1883-1942)
4)Martha SHUTTLEWORTH (1889-1889)
5)Thomas Simson SHUTTLEWORTH (1889- )
Could it be a different line of Shuttleworths?? Perhaps Thomas Richmond SHUTTLEWORTH and the William SHUTTLEWORTH you listed are brothers??
and one last thing that is a lot of children... phew!!
Well, There were Shuttleworths entered NSW and Adelaide I really don't know I am looking at that Thomas Simpson at the moment I have found 3 different birthdates for him and not much else. Hell I just saw Grace Elizabeth now who did she marry TOZER I think now where was that. Your head's spinning! As for George Shuttleworths they are everywhere. I'll just go back and check Grace 1st.
I know I have Thomas George 1879 and Thomas Simpson 1889 as brothers which seems wrong was like that on 4 trees maybe Thomas Simpson who looks like a twin died. That whole number 6 seems wrong. I just get the feeling Emma Lye married another Thomas Shuttleworth. But then the LYE/SHUTTLEWORTH family buried him.
Here's Grace Elizabeth
Birth: 1873 - Bungaree, Victoria, Australia
Marriage: 1893 - Victoria, Australia
Death: Aug 1937 - Ballarat, Victoria, Australia
Spouse: Frank Duke 1872-1948
Don't know where I got Tozer from !!
Thanks Jan - I might do another journal entry so we can compare what i have to the research you have just done. So i take it both our heads are now spinning. They've not made it easy for us - but i do like a challenge ;) I'll get that journal started now..
