Hi Ngairedith.

Thanks for searching the cemetery records for these burials. I've been chasing up a few deaths and marriages and will update this post when I sort a few things out. I'm sure it will help a few people researching these lines.

Melva died 1930 in Boulder W.A. at the young aged of 34 years. Have not visited the cemetery as yet.

Thanks again Ngairedith - IOU one.

Hi Tonkin ,
Melva Nankervis was my Grandmother and married to Cosmo James Halse . seems like a few of them married each others families over the years .
I would like to know more about her and who her parents were ? There are very few bits of information available to me as little or no information was passed down the line .
Even her parents names would be appreciated .

by philhal2 on 2011-01-14 05:24:11

Melva and Cosmo were married in Coolgardie , lived in Boulder , Melva is buried in the Boulder Cemetary . Children born to Melva and Cosmo ,in Boulder , were Ronald , Gladious and Ross Halse . Cosmo James her husband is buried in Karrakatta Cemetary Fremantle W.A

Thanks for the extra info. I'm sure other family researchers will appreciate your input.

OK - Melva was born in Kadina, South Australia in 1894. Her parents were Richard NANKERVIS and Elizabeth HARWOOD.

I only have hand written notes on this family at the moment and will put something together tomorrow. I'm trying to get rid of this flu I have and must not overwork myself.

by philhal2 on 2011-01-14 08:23:22

Thanks for that and try to help correct for Ngaire

I am still trying to find more on Cosmo's parents James and Jane and the relocation to W.A
This may be the parents
Jane Halse Female 1925 Western Australia Perth North Perth
Jane Halse Female 1916 Western Australia Perth North Perth
Jane Halse Female 1936 Western Australia Perth Maylands
Jane Halse Female 1925 Western Australia Perth North Perth

Needed the confirmation on Melvas folks to remove those horrible ?? marks . Learning more about her now than in 50 odd years prior to today. TY to the good side of the internet and the people who use it wisely :)

by tonkin on 2011-01-14 19:27:36

Sorry, can't help you with the parents of Cosmo. I only know they were James and Jane. They had another five children in New South Wales besides Cosmo, but I have not located a marriage for them. We know they were still in N.S.W. in 1890 when Gladious was born but have no idea when they moved to W.A.

As for their deaths ... could be any of the above.

I put my notes together on Melva's family and have put up a post with what details I have collected to date. I have only done a bit of research on the NANKERVIS lines in South Australian and still have a lot to learn from the records. I do know there are plenty of them and they are not always easy to find because they are always on the move.

There was a Richard NANKERVIS died in Coolgardie in 1921 so he may be worth looking at. I will do a search of the S.A. births and see if I can find a possible birth for Richard and Elizabeth. Let me know if you have them - it will save me some time.

by ngairedith on 2011-01-14 23:05:11

hope you can get something from this:
NANKERVIS buried in Perth WA

by tonkin on 2011-01-15 15:37:42

Thank you ngairedith much appreciated.

I think Elizabeth Ann and Stirling William NANKERVIS will be two of the clan.

And a correction to my last reply - I named Gladious being the last born in N.S.W. in 1890 ... this should have been Alfred. We all make errors.

I have since searched the S.A. records for the birth of Richard NANKERVIS and Elizabeth HARWOOD. No luck with Elizabeth but Richard was born there in 1887. His parents were Thomas NANKERVIS and Mary GRENFELL. Have started a post on the family for anyone interested and will update with marriages and deaths after further searches of the records. It all takes time.

LOOK at the above re Thomas Henry HALSE and Elizabeth Annie NANKERVIS were married in Victoria in 1895.

Thomas died 1951 Perth district, Western Australia, aged 72 years.

It makes Thomas 16 at the time of his marriage ? if you have the Thomas as being in W.A and dead in 1956 .
His wife would have been 25 , Does some one have a marriage certificate for this or its all guess work ???

Thank you Phil. Will leave Thomas above ground for now. It's also possible this Thomas was a few years older than stated. Will take another look at things.
