I've struggled with this today and there are a lot of gaps. Any help with these two TOOTELL families would be appreciated

Hello, I'm a descendent of Ellen Tootell b: 1847 who married Thomas Hosking CARMAN 1838-1888 at Bendigo in 1869. Their daughter Phillippa Ethel b. 1881 was my GGG grandmother. I came across this page. It was only this week my Father and I were wondering about his Mothers line of genealogy. Now we have another piece of the puzzle!

That's good news. I've added marriage and death years for her.
A trip to Maldon with a visit to Carman's Tunnel would complete the experience.
