CONVICT RECORDS

Hi Folks,

 

During September and October I have added some images of the convict records for the "guests of the crown" in the MP database.  Typically you can now see the images of your forebear's Convict Indent, Ticket(s) of Leave, Certificate of Freedom or Conditional Pardon and in many cases their Permission to Marry.

 

These images reveal some remarkable detail, including the offence(s) they committed, when and where tried and the length of their sentence.  A detail description including marital status and all identifying marks and tattoos can also be seen.

 

If you have not seen these records before, I recommend you take the time to have a look now.

 

Each image is attached to the individual's record in the MP database and viewed by searching for that specific individual or by viewing all the Convict record images ….

 

 

I hope you find these new images of some help.

 

Regards,  Ian

 


FRENCH FAMILY GATHERING

 

This coming November marks the 175th anniversary of the arrival of Daniel French and Isabella Whitton and their two children, William and Daniel, at Brungle Station.

 

“Many family members know that the family came from Lanark Scotland,” said archivist and historian Robert French, ‘but few know of family origins that go back to Yorkshire in England and, before that, to Normandy.”

 

To mark the anniversary a family gathering has been organised at:

All Saints Anglican Church Hall, Tumut on Saturday 28 November.

 

Mr French will give a talk on “The Norman, English & Scottish Origins of the French Family of Brungle” at 11 am, to be repeated at 2pm.

 

For catering and other purposes, booking is advisable.

“Family members, and others who wish to attend, should indicate which lecture time would suit them” French said. “Tea and coffee and sandwiches will be available for purchase before and after each session, a time for family members to mingle.”

 

Those wishing to attend should rsvp to:

rbfr@bigpond.net.au 

or

write to: 4 Ducros Street, Petersham NSW 2049

or

telephone: (02) 9568 1995 or 0427 105 675

 

Robert French

Mr French, a history graduate and a foundation member of the Australian Society of Archivists, was, before retirement, the Director of the Sydney office of the National Archives of Australia. He is also a former Deputy Archivist at the World Bank in Washington DC. In retirement he has spent time researching and writing history, including his own family history, and as an active member of several local history societies in Sydney.

GORDON ENQUIRY – HELP REQUIRED

Hi Folks,

 

I need your help?  I received the following inquiry …

 

Hi Ian,   I have been filling in the gaps on my family tree regarding Simon Gordon - thanks for the extra information.  I do have a problem with William George Booth who married Alice Maud Gordon.

I have William born in 1870  with parents as Charles Bleakly Booth and Caroline Brown.   My first source for the parents was NSW Pioneer Births.   In Ancestry.com they have Charles Bleakly Booth and Caroline (name spelt wrong on Ancestry) Reg # 9957 same as NSW Pioneer births.   

William had a sister called Lydia b. 1872 Reg # 3206.   Charles H Booth b. 1866, Caroline Booth b. 1868, Alfred George, b 1874,
  Emily Booth 1877  Walter Alexander Booth 1879.

Listed on the descendants report is the parents of William George Booth as Maryann Prentice d. 1914  John Booth b. 1821 d. 6/3/1891
They had a son called William George Booth but he was born 1 May 1874.   Source Monaro Eden Pioneers ID 53348.

Would you  be able to verify for me, if possible, who are the correct parents thanks.

Regards

Janette Cleaver

 

I was able to establish that the William George Booth born 1870 Goulburn to parents Charles Bleakley Booth and Caroline Brown was not the person who married Alice Maud Gordon 18/11/1896 in Pambula.  The MP database currently shows Alice's husband was, as Janette says, William George Booth (MP179732) born 1/5/1874 Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ireland and dies 27/10/1923 Haberfield, parents John Booth and Mary Ann Prentice.

 

However, we do have another William George Booth (MP228611) in the database who I suspect is the real husband of Alice Maud Gordon, born 1871 Kiama and died 1/11/1915 Jellat Jellat. Parents William Booth (1824-1916) and Eliza Jane Booth (-1891). The database currently has him unmarried but I have found the following death notice in Trove …

 

The Bega Budget Wednesday 3 November 1915

 

Mr. William George Booth died suddenly at his father's residence. Jellat Jellat, on Monday morning. Shortly after rising he complained of feeling ill, and almost at once passed away. Deceased was 42 years of age, and a wife and family survive. The remains were interred in the Church of England cemetery yesterday, Archdeacon Mell performing the last sad rites.

 

So this "other" William George (MP228611) had a family and we have no information thereof.  Plus all of the children of Alice Maud Gordon have a birth registration district of Eden.  Thus I suspect this "other" William George (MP228611) is the correct husband for Alice Maud but I have no proof, a copy of the marriage certificate would resolve the issue if anyone has one.  Ancestry.com has a number of trees that show William George (MP179732) as the husband but we all know how easily an error can be propagated on that site.

 

Can anyone help resolve this question?  If Alice Maud Gordon did marry William George Booth (MP179732) then who are the family of William George Booth (MP228611)?

 

Hoping someone can help,

 

Regards,

 

Ian Harvey

Hi David and Ian,

 

Greetings from New Zealand.

 

Thank you both, plus all your helpers, for all the work you do on the Monaro Pioneers website and database. A fantastic source of information for the family I'm interested in as well as "collateral" families that they associated with in some way, eg emigrating at the same time, emigration sponsoring, living/working in the same district, etc.

 

I have a request of you and/or recipients of your newsletter, please.

 

I am interested in the McPAUL family, as my grandmother was Catherine McPAUL.  I understand that a write up of (some?) McPAUL family history was created by Nancy Roberts in the early 1980s  and made available at a McPAUL reunion.

 

I would like to obtain a copy of that document if possible, please.  An original that is no longer needed would be the ultimate, but a copy (photocopy or scan) is equally desirable.  My email address is: susan@kennis.co.nz. Thank you.

 

Cheers,  Susan Wilson

RIXON

Subject: MP pioneers

Hi Ian

 

Thanks for the latest interesting newsletter. There is always something to catch the eye - even if it is not immediately related to my family line. Much appreciation for the continued dedication.

 

Could you please update this:

1473. Rixon, Jean   Descendancy chart to this point was born 12 Aug 1927, Gulargambone, NSW.

Passed away 16th July 2015

 

Another interesting point is the possibility that my ancestor, James Rixon, [MP0643] - who was charged as James Hickson may have been baptised at St Michaels Church in Lichfield, Staffordshire. [Attached photo]

 

This information was given to me by David Herbert, shortly before my husband & I were to be in the area in early August. We went to the Church, saw the font which would have been in use on 17.1.1771, and examined the microfiche of the Church records. This date fits with James' age being given as 22 when he was charged in 1792.

If this is the correct James, his parents were Thomas Hickson and Mary.

 

James was charged with stealing nine guineas in Ilkeston, Derbyshire which is about 35 miles from Lichfield.

 

With more time & further research it may be possible to find a marriage for his parents & possibly a prior conviction for James. The local Librarian suggested the death penalty was harsh for a first offence!

 

Cheers,  Joye

Hi Joye,

Thanks for the information, there is always some new info "popping" up which makes the MP project so interesting.  I am delighted you find the newsletter worthwhile, sadly the volume of material for inclusion is starting to dwindle.  I am not sure if this is because of disinterest or that we have most of information in the database already.  Sad really because there is still so much that needs to be added and so many dates that are incomplete.

 

Perhaps another appeal to our readership might stir some action?

 

I have recently been adding the images of convict records I can find in Ancestry.com to the "guests of the crown" in the database including the scant material available for James Hickson.

Regards,  Ian

Hi Ian

Hopefully the lack of material is because people are finding so much useful "stuff" there already.  As more becomes available online, no doubt there will be more to add.  It is great to see copies of original documents because as you know it is easy to mis-read or transcribe incorrectly from hand-written documents.

Our "James Hickson" is a bit of an enigma with the name change to "Rixon". Maybe an early mis-spelling!

 

No need to reply to this message -  I do appreciate all the work you do for the wide membership.

Cheers,  Joye

BUNYAN

From: John Bunyan
Sent: 25 October, 2015 7:27 AM
Subject: origin of name "Bunyan"

Dear Sir,

 

Just before going into town, I thought I’d enquire about how “Bunyan” came to be used of the tiny hamlet and the lake near Cooma.  On this web-site the name in this case is said to be aboriginal.  I wondered if there was any evidence for this at all.

 

The name would have been very well-known in Australia as in the UK in the 19th century when many people still read “The Pilgrim’s Progress”.

 

The surname’s origin is Buignon (spelt in various ways in the Middle Ages), from a Norman French word for small patties (related to the words “bun” and “bunion”), the earliest known member of the Norman family being noted in 1199.

 

Have not passed by Bunyan for many years and first did so when going with our Canberra Grammar School pupils to the snow back in the early 60s.

 

With all good wishes,

 

Yours faithfully,  (Chaplain) J.R.Bunyan

Campbelltown, NSW

Hi John,

Sorry, I am not aware of any "evidence" to support the information we have.  This email will be included in our next newsletter and perhaps one of our readers will be able to help you.

John Joseph Galvin b 25 January 1873 and d in 1923 in 38 Derwent Street Glebe.  He married my Great Grandmother - Margaret Mary Carroll born 31 October 1881 in Merringo near Boorowa NSW married on 29 November 1900 in Condobolin.  Margaret Mary Galvin nee Carroll died 6 April 1967 in Prince Alfred Hospital Sydney Cert no 21122/1967.  I have all their children that I can give to you.  My grandmother was their second child Christina Hope Galvin Born 24/12/1902 in Condobolin Died June 1970 in Concord Hospital Sydney  Certificate no 19355/1970.

 

Christina Hope Galvin married Victor Rowland Ham b 25 April 1896 in Bristol, Somerset, England. Married 29 December 1932 in St John Bishopthorpe Glebe Cert no 1933/1589 Died 31 October 1950 in Randwick Hospital Sydney Cert 29822/1950.  He fought for Australia in the Army and died basically from wounds sustained in the Second World War.

 

Then you get to living people my mother Joan Margaret Ham, named after her grandmother Margaret Mary Carroll.  Joan Margaret Ham married John Addison on 31 March 1956.   Then me Judy-Ann Armstrong nee Addison.

 

I can give you all the information if you want to add it onto the tree.  I was reading some stories about Peter McNally who if I have it right is my gg grandmother Sarah McNally's brother.  There seems to be a long history in Yass, Yass River and Derringulen.  Michael Denis Galvin b 1819 was apparently an apprentice to Hamilton Hume and Margaret Ennis was sponsored to come to Australia, they were yet unmarried until they came here and then they were married. Mum and Dad went to a special event about 15 years ago in Yass about this, there is an association with Caroline Chisolm, I think.

 

John Joseph Galvin (The third) b 25 January 1873 was a policeman in the NSW Colonial Police Force.  He opened up a few of the regional police stations/goals Condobolin in particular as there is a news article my cousin has celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the jail a few years ago and stating that law enforcement/solicitor connection is still there 100 years later as my cousin is a solicitor and is married to another solicitor, they have a legal practice in Condobolin.

 

I have a similar connection as I am a Licensed Conveyancer.

 

My parents in law live in Frogmore near Boorowa, they moved from Sydney about 17 years ago.  I have done some family research and found something like 73 relatives buried in Boorowa Cemetery, their family names are Carroll and Corkery.  I must admit that I have always felt at home on the Monaro Plain, and love the Snowy Mountains, Boorowa and Yass.  This was before I knew my family had a family history in the area.  When I go and visit my parents in law in Boorowa, I have noticed that some of the people look a lot like me and my great grand

aunt for example, sometimes the resemblances is uncanny.  But probably I am just related to them, they are my cousins.

 

Kind regards

 

Judy-Ann Armstrong nee Addison. gg granddaughter of John Joseph Galvin.  We do have some lovely photos of him, all dressed up in his Colonial Police Force Uniform.  I think he was an Inspector of Police when he died in 1923 at Glebe, my grand uncle told me a few years ago, His name of course was John Joseph Galvin (the Fourth and one of the best!).

 

Judy-Ann Armstrong

Thank you Judy,

We welcome additional information and images if you can provide them.

Regards,  Ian

DAY/SMITH/AKERS

From: Michelle Wallace
Sent: 20 October, 2015 11:15 AM
Subject: Seeking family history connections

Hello, 

Please forgive the intrusion.

 

My name is Michelle Wallace and I am seeking to research my family history in the Monaro. My sister, Diana Goldrick has done some research and has passed the baton to me.

 

I have looked on the Monaro Pioneers site and hope you may be able to point me in the right direction.

 

My maternal grandmother was Elsie Maud Henry (nee Smith) born at Ironmongie on 9 August 1890, died 13 October 1976 in Sydney.

 

She was the sixth living daughter of William Henry Smith born 11 February 1954 at Charcoal Creek, died 26 December 1922 in Cooma and Margaret Day born 20 October 1856 at Camden, died 25 May 1928,  Sydney. All of their 11 children, eight of whom survived were born at Ironmongie.

 

I was very close to Elsie and remember going to Cooma with her at about the age of 10  and meting a Lonnie Day, who I think was her cousin. My sister and I were her only grandchildren as her son Larry (Laurence) did not marry. My mother's name was Joyce (Joy) May Preston.

 

My sister has been able to trace back to First Fleeter Thomas Acres (Akers) but we are very keen for more information  on the Day and Smith families.

 

I would be grateful, too, to know if I am barking up the wrong tree. 

Yours sincerely,   Michelle Wallace

Hi Michelle,

You can find all the information we have on the Day and Smith family's in our database which is searchable via our website.  Margaret Day is indeed a direct descendant of Thomas Akers and you can follow those branches back as far as we have information on our website.

Regards,  Ian

 


RIXON

Subject: MP pioneers

Hi Ian

 

Thanks for the latest interesting newsletter. There is always something to catch the eye - even if it is not immediately related to my family line. Much appreciation for the continued dedication.

 

Could you please update this:

1473. Rixon, Jean   Descendancy chart to this point was born 12 Aug 1927, Gulargambone, NSW.

Passed away 16th July 2015

 

Another interesting point is the possibility that my ancestor, James Rixon, [MP0643] - who was charged as James Hickson may have been baptised at St Michaels Church in Lichfield, Staffordshire. [Attached photo]

 

This information was given to me by David Herbert, shortly before my husband & I were to be in the area in early August. We went to the Church, saw the font which would have been in use on 17.1.1771, and examined the microfiche of the Church records. This date fits with James' age being given as 22 when he was charged in 1792.   If this is the correct James, his parents were Thomas Hickson and Mary.

 

James was charged with stealing nine guineas in Ilkeston, Derbyshire which is about 35 miles from Lichfield.

 

With more time & further research it may be possible to find a marriage for his parents & possibly a prior conviction for James. The local Librarian suggested the death penalty was harsh for a first offence!

 

Cheers,  Joye

Hi Joye,

Thanks for the information, there is always some new info "popping" up which makes the MP project so interesting.  I am delighted you find the newsletter worthwhile, sadly the volume of material for inclusion is starting to dwindle.  I am not sure if this is because of disinterest or that we have most of information in the database already.  Sad really because there is still so much that needs to be added and so many dates that are incomplete.

 

Perhaps another appeal to our readership might stir some action?

 

I have recently been adding the images of convict records I can find in Ancestry.com to the "guests of the crown" in the database including the scant material available for James Hickson.

Regards,  Ian

STEWART — TOMLINSON.

 

A quiet, but pretty wedding took place at St. Philip's Church, Auburn, on Thursday, 23rd December last, by the Rev P. J. Evans, when Isabella Mary Tomlinson, second daughter of Mrs. Tomlinson, of "Cordillera", Cumberland-road, Auburn, was married to Mr. Leslie Stewart, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Stewart, of Wellington.  The bride was gowned in an ivory crepe-de-chene trimmed with Georgette.  Her embroidered veil was held in position by a cirlet of orange blossoms, and she carried a shower bouquet of white roses and carnations, tied with white satin streamers.  She was given away by Mr. Bert Stewart, brother of the bridegroom, and was attended by Miss Alice Leake, as bridesmaid, who wore a pretty blue voile dress, trimmed with frills, and hat was of the same shade.  She carried a bouquet of pink roses and asparagus fern, tied with pink satin streamers.  Mr. Charles Leake, brother-in-law of the bride, was best man.  A reception was held at the residence of the bride's mother, and only the immediate relatives and friends were entertained.  After the usual congratulations the happy couple, amid showers of confetti and good wishes, motored to Coogee, where the honeymoon was spent, the bride travelling in an apricot crepe-de-chene dress and hat to match.

BAIN

From: Phyllis Kallquist
Sent: 13 October, 2015 7:43 PM
Subject: Elzabeth Bain Ref MP13458

Dear Ian,

I am looking for some clarification of the parents and siblings of Elizabeth Bain. ID 113458

There was a family of Bains who came to Sydney in 1837 and 1838 on the Portland from Greenock. In 1837 Mary Bain and Henrietta Clugston nee Bain arrived. In 1838 Jane/Jean McKay widow of James Bain arrived with her 3 children Elizabeth b 24 Mar 1823, James b 13 May 1820 and Jane b 1832. The mother Jean Bain died in 1840 with daughter Jane taken into care but the following year given into the care of her brother in law Alexander Clugston. So this establishes that Henrietta was the daughter of Jean McKay.

Was the Elizabeth Bain who married Thomas Appleby the one who arrived on the Portland in 1838 ? To add to the confusion it has Elizabeth’s origin as Cornwall on Bounty Immigrants list.

There are OPRs for Henrietta and Mary as daughters of James Bain and Jean McKay in Montrose, Angus. However  Mary’s registry of death states that her mother was Elizabeth. Also on the Bounty Immigrants List it states that she is a native of Geenock.

When Mary Bain married John Ferguson in 1841 Henrietta Clugston and James Bain were witnesses. There appears to have been close contact between Elizabeth Bain Appleby’s family and Mary Bain Adcroft’s family in the ensuing years.

It is all very confusing and I would appreciate any guidance you can give to help me unravel the Bains.

Regards,  Phyllis Kallquist

Hi Phyllis,

I have done a bit of checking and it appears you are correct.  The information we had on the parents of Mary and Elizabeth was not correct and I have amended our records accordingly.  You conclusions are supported by the information available on the immigration records, the Familysearch website and Ancestry.com.

TINDALL

Sent: 7 October, 2015 6:29 PM
Subject: Monaro Pioneers Website - James Ivan Tindall

Hi Ian

 

I am writing to find out if you have any biographical information on a family called Tindall? Specifically James Ivan Tindall (known as Jim Tindall, he was born in Towamba on 14 July 1913), his parents or siblings? James died in an RAAF plane crash in New Guinea on 18 September 1945. He was one of 29 servicemen. My uncle also died in the crash and I am writing a book about it, and including a short biography on each of the servicemen.

 

I already have a copy of James Tindall's service record and have found other details about the family on Trove - but wanted to know if you have anything I can add. I also have had past contact with some of his present day relatives who I want to talk to again. But I'm contacting you as I am interested in looking at the history aspects.

 

His parents were:-

 

Charles James Tindall was born in “Native Dog Flat", Mt Cooper, in 1882 Ethel Eunice Maud Martin born in Eden in 1891

 

Their other children (James' siblings) were:-

 

Mary Elizabeth, Courtney Charles, Edna Doris, Dorothy Alma, Vera Eileen, Gordon Wilfred, Reginald Laurence and Ina May.

 

The father Charles James was a farmer in Towamba, then Kameruka, before moving his family to Candelo moved into the town of Candelo where he bought a shop known as the Old Repository from Mr. and Mrs F. J. Ryan, who were well known proprietors.

 

I'd be grateful for any information (even photos) you can share.

 

Look forward to hearing back from you.

 

Kind regardsMarilyn Campbell
