Unable to locate a marriage for William LOCKLAND and Clara VENN around 1908 but did find this birth.

Name: William Lockland VENN.
Born: 1908 Carlton, Victoria.
Father: Not recorded.
Mother: Clara VENN.
Birth registration number: 9606.

Because the father was not named and the birth was registered under VENN it would appear Clara was not married when William was born.

To Tonkin Many thanks for you reply. Les Lockland
1. My father William Lockland, birth cert states he was born William Locklin Venn 1908 at Carlton Cert No 3870
2. William Lockland death notice correct
3. Angus Charles correct. Body buried at Warracknambeal Cementary. Unmarked grave.
4. Millicent Isabella Lockland is correct.
5. Clara Millicent Lockland is o.k Mother Maiden name Steer
6. Clara Venn birth is correct. Lived in Mundala S.A
I have collected information on Clara's brothers and sisters. Cuttings of the Venn family history.
I am searching if Clara was ever married. She lived in Rainbow,1909, Minyip 1911, Crowlands 1912, Ararat 1913-1939. Never with a partner or husband ( according to my father). There is a William Henry Lockland lived in Melbourme 1870-1940's ?? LES

So far I have only located three children born to William and Clara as mentioned above, albeit with different parents details.

Have searched the marriage records again for Australia but unable to locate a marriage for William and Clara. It appears they were never married.

To Tokin, Clara Venn Lockland ( Locklin )had 5 children.
1. William Lockland, also recorded as Lachlan , Locklin Venn 1908 Melbourne
2. Angus Charles Lockland also recorded as Locklin. 1911 Minyip
3. Leslie John Lockland no Birth Cert born 1910 Nhill Vic
4. Clarabelle ( Belle ) Lockland Born Ararat 1913
5. Isla Lockland Born Ararat 1916 No Birth Cert
I am searching for William Lockland. Some records claim he is William Lochland, or Lachlan. There are lots of documents spelt either way, confusing the facts.I have researched the Venn family, they lived in and around Mundula South Aust.
Clara came to Victoria in 1908 to have her first child William, my father. Could email information if permitted. Cheers Les

There's a wealth of family information in TROVE
The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) Thu 18 July 1895
A DELIBERATE SUICIDE.
WARRACKNABEAL, WEDNESDAY.

A magisterial inquiry was held at the courthouse, before Mr. Donald M'Coll, J.P., on the body of George Venn, a labourer, who was found hanging by the neck from a mallee tree, at Bangerang on Tuesday evening. Venn's clothing was saturated with blood, from veins which had been cut at each elbow A pockebook which was found in his tent contained a letter asking that a copy of the contents of the book should be sent to John Venn, Border Town, Tatiara,
South Australia He wished his brothers and sisters good bye, and stated that he was going to bleed himself to death by opening the veins of his arms, and that drink had been his ruin A verdict of death from strangulation by hanging whilst suffering from the effects of a drinking bout was returned
The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA) Tuesday 10 September 1918
VENN. — On the 9th September, at Nurse Ashenden's Private Hospital, Torrensville, Charlotte, beloved wife of the late John Venn, late of Bordertown.

I am seeking information of WILLIAM LOCKLAND,also recorded as LOCHLAND , LACHLAN , LOCKLIN in 1906 .He is recorded as being married to Clara Millicent Venn of Mundala near Brodertown in 1906. One document states they were married in Mitchem S.Aust Oct 12th 1906. No official records.
I am unsure if this is accurate or covered up. Who was William Lockland or Lachlan, Locklin or Lochland .
CLARA VENN LOCKLAND had 5 children. No husband ever listed. Any suggestions

I have been searching the death records looking for a possible death for your William LOCKLAND including similar names like LOCHLAND but have not had any luck to date. The ones I did find had second given names and were married and I have ruled them out. Its a bit like looking for the shortest straw in the haystack but will keep looking.
