I am not sure if you can help me I am in search of information relating to a Elsie May Coffey (nee Crouch), her father was John Baird Crouch who married Elizabeth Hughes. Elsie is my great grandmother and the information we have on her is from after she married my great grandfather Patrick Joseph Coffey in 1915 in Glenelg South Australia. We would like to know of any information of her prior to her marriage thankyou look forward to hearing from you my email is thanks again

Greetings rennewb.

Having searched all the Australian birth records I can find no children recorded for John Baird CROUCHER and Catherine Elizabeth HUGHES. It's possible John and Catherine left Australia after they were married in 1886 and had children in another country. Being unable to locate John and Catherine's deaths in Australia makes me think this may be the case, but I could be wrong.

Going by Elsie's given age at marriage and death she was born circa 1888.
This may assist others with a birth search for Elsie.

hello rennewb,
Catherine Elizabeth (nee BRITTON, formerly HUCHES) married John Baird CROUCH Fitzroy, Victoria on 30 September 1886
Apparently they did not have children of their but they did raise a family of adopted children

Due to a lack of official records and a fire that destroyed the records of the Kennerley Boys' Home in Hobart (from where some of the boys were adopted aged between 5 & 7), no documentary evidence has been found for the adoptions:

- these are the only children found at this time (and all taken from the very informative site linked here) but does not include your Elsie May (which doesn't mean she wasn't a daughter, just that I haven't found her as being known as one of their children)
1892 - Archibald Crouch (born Rhyl Garrett)
1893 - 1965 Ruby Sylvia Crouch (born Garrett, blood sister of Archibald)
1897 - 1935 Ralph Whitticomb Crouch (drowned with his son in Hobart)
1898 - 1917 Raymond Crouch (killed in action)
1901 - Charles Henry
? - 1924 Wentworth
? - ? Ronald
1904 - [url=]Russell James[/url[

* see more on The CROUCH Family

* the family appear to have broken apart, several of the siblings were never in contact with one another again.

* Catherine Elizabeth died in 1914 (shortly after three of her sons went to war) and perhaps it was this that led to the break up of the siblings and the alienation between the family

* After Ruby married she never spoke to the family again

* on 11 March 1918, John Baird Crouch married again, to a widow of German descent, Louisa Augusta Schmidt

* John Baird Crouch died in 1951
- for a very full & interesting look at his life John Baird Crouch, Tasmania
Mr John Baird Crouch, well-known Dover identity, who as a lad in Victoria rode with the boys who would later become notorious as the Kelly Gang, died in Hobart on Monday at the age of 90. Mr Crouch had been in failing health for some time
