Rolla Thomas PLANT b 25 Oct 1876 in Ballan, d 25 Apr 1941 in Horsham was my grandfather. I have the following information which I hope is correct:
Rolla's mother Mildred SPICE d 15 Feb 1916 in Ararat.
His sister Anna Elizabeth d 1912 in Newtown, NSW.
His sister Miriam Amelia PLANT m William Birchall HUNTER 24 Jul 1889 in Sth Melb.
William Birchall HUNTER's father was Job Hunter b 22 Jul 1832 in Swinford, Leicestershire, d 15 Mar 1915 of 'senile debility, exhaustion' at 82 Carlton St. Carlton, Vic. His mother was Anna Maria Johanna BIRCHALL b abt. 1834 in Chorlton upon Medlock, Lancashire, d 08 Jun 1893 at 72 Clarenden St, Sth Melb. They had 8 children of which William Birchall HUNTER was the 7th born. Job & Anna were m 29 Jul 1854 in St Paul's, Melb.
Thomas PLANT (youngest of Robt PLANT & Mildred SPICE's 10 children) was b 1883 in Ballan.
I hope this is of some use to someone out there!

Thank you Margaret.

You mention here that Rolla's mother, Mildred SPICER, died in Ararat on the 15 February 1916. There is no record of this death in the Victorian records.

This is the death of Rolla's mother.

Name: Mildred PLANT.
Died: 1922 Horsham, Victoria.
Age: 78 years.
Father: Thomas SPICE.
Mother: Bridget WHELAN.
Ref: Victorian Death Index #5601.

Note the different spelling of Mildred's parents SPICER and WHEELAN.

Here are some details that may interest you.


Name: Mildred Magdeline PLANT.
Born: 1915 Horsham, Victoria.
Father: Rollo Thomas PLANT.
Mother: Martha Rebecca KANE.
Ref: Victorian Birth Index #13549.


Name: Mildred Magdeline PLANT.
Died: 1916 Horsham, Victoria.
Age: 01 year.
Father: Rolla Thomas PLANT.
Mother: Martha Rebecca KANE.
Ref: Victorian Death Index #10550.

It appears to me someone has confused the death of Rolla's mother, Mildred PLANT, nee SPICER, and the death of Rolla's daughter, Mildred Magdeline PLANT.

I'm always happy to be corrected.

Thanks for such a prompt response. I know my mother (Martha Nancy CRAWFORD nee PLANT b 14 Aug 1912) was only 5 years old when her mother, Mildred, died of TB in a sanatorium. This would put Mildred's date of death as 1917 but I can't understand why there isn't a record of her death.

On a different note, I saw your name pop-up in relation to the MILLS family. I have also been researching the MILLS as my father's mother was Ethel Elizabeth Kendall MILLS b 1882 in Maryborough. She married my grandfather, John Crawford 03 Oct 1906 in Heyfield. I have details of over 50 members of the MILLS family dating back to Samuel b 1786.

Thanks again.

Hi Margaret.

A few more details for you.

Your mother's birth.

Name: Martha Nancy PLANT.
Born: 1912 Horsham, Victoria.
Father: Rolla Thomas PLANT.
Mother: Martha Rebecca KANE.
Ref: Victorian Birth Index #30878.

In your comment above you name Martha's mother as Mildred that died about 1817. Mildred was Rolla's mother.

This is the death of your mother's mother, Martha, not Mildred.


Name: Martha PLANT.
Died: 1917 Horsham, Victoria.
Age: 44 years.
Father: Robert KANE.
Mother: Eliza MCAFEE.
Ref: Victorian Death Index #12717.

You're absolutely right! Mum's mother was Martha Rebecca & her grandmother was Mildred! I haven't been able to find any information on Robert KANE & Eliza MCAFEE although I do have details of their 5 children. Thanks. All info is gratefully received.

I have all the BDMs for Robert and Eliza's five children. If you have any details missing let me know. I have not located Robert and Eliza's marriage or deaths to date and will let you know if I do.

I have just updated the above journal and hope it helps you in some way. I will include Miriam's death when I find it.

I'm also a granddaughter of Rolla Thomas Plant and have just started researching. So far I've worked out:
Robert Plant born in Suffolk, England 1825, but can't find record of coming to Australia. Buried at Ballan
Have been unable to find birth/marriage of Robert & Eliza Kane, though both were born in Antrim, Northern Ireland.
Robert Kane died in 1878 near Horsham, aged 31 years, as the result of farming accident. Located will/probate via PROV
Eliza remarried in 1887: George Edward Anderson, and they had daughter Elizabeth in 1888 (born in Horsham)
Eliza died in 1924 in Horsham, and she and George are buried at Horsham cemetery. Her grave says she was born in Antrim Ireland 8 October 1851 but I haven't had any success following this up
