Gilbert / Gilbart family of St Erth

I am looking for the descendants of John Gilbert / Gilbart died 1837 ages 76 at St Erth. He married Elizabeth Huthnance (1774-1847) and they had 13 children.

Some of these children emigrated to Austrlaia - in particular:
*Mary (1805-1867) who was married to Thomas Edwards (1794-1871)
*Sarah (1808-1854) who was married to Francis Tuckfield (1808-1865)

I would be delighted to make contact with any fellow researchers.

Robert Henry WHITEMAN (abt 1839 Somersetshire - 1884 New South Wales, Australia)

Robert Henry Whiteman died of pneumonia in February 1884 at Parkes in New South Wales, Australia. He left behind a young widow and one child with another child yet to be born. Robert had married Sarah Jane Way in 1882 at Parkes. He was a miner.

The marriage certificate does not give details of his parents. Similarly details of his parents were not known at the time of his death (informants were from his wife's family). His death certificate states he had been born in Somersetshire, was aged 45 (born about 1839) and had emigrated to Australia at the age of 5 - ie about 1844.

I would be delighted to share information with any other researchers.

Researching the COLEMAN family from Gloucestershire

Henry Edward Coleman 1802-1884 was a medical practitioner. He lived at Mitcheldean.

There are a number of puzzles about his life. For example his estate was only administered in 1907, 23 years after his death!?!
