Kent Lookup Requests / Re: 1841 & 1851 census - Morris
« on: Thursday 10 January 19 01:57 GMT (UK)  »
Richard MORRIS baptised 14 Sept 1833 at Goudhurst. Parents William and Mary. (on familysearch)

As you say, this may be the Richard MORRIS who arrived in SA on the Cressy, however it may not be your Richard.

Having read your recent thread on the Australian board and seeing the link to this old thread ... have you discounted the Richard MORRIS who is the son of William and Mary MORRIS born Goudhurst, Kent c1834? This is the family in 1841 at Iden Green, Goudhurst

William Morris   44  (William is a carpenter in later censuses)
Mary Morris      45
Mary Morris      21
Harriet Morris   13
Walter Morris    11
Richard Morris    7
HO107/473/8 pg 8

and in 1851 Richard is in High St, Tunbridge
Thomas Pluck      56    Littlebury, Essex (plumber and journeyman)
Elizabeth Pluck     60    Brompton, Kent
Mary Pluck      22    Tonbridge, Kent
William Pluck      18    Tonbridge, Kent
Richard Morris    (Visitor)    17    Goudhurst, Kent (apprentice carpenter)
HO107/1615 / 15  pg 23

I can't see Richard in any later census, or a likely death, so a possible candidate for emigration.

(I realise Goudhurst is some 30km from Chatham though  :-\)

Hello Poppy and welcome to rootschat.

I'm sure Ken will be very pleased to hear from you if you have information about the person he is seeking. He should receive an email notification that you have posted on this thread, so hopefully will be along soon to contact you.

This has the marriage as 25 Oct 1731 at Little Bentley

It seems well researched, so worth a look  ;)

This thread says Francis WILSON married Mary CARRINGTON (reply #6). Perhaps you could pm B Steve, or put a post on that thread to see what other info he has.

Wicklow / Re: Catherine Dowling of Wicklow

Are you looking for information prior to her transportation, or after she arrived in Australia? Interesting info and account of the voyage here:

I notice it says Catherine DOWLING had a child with her.

Australia / Re: Help needed in Tasmania

Thanks Sue, so annoying not having my computer, but still can't stay away from rootschat!

The age in the death notice doesn't necessarily preclude him from being your Robert, but I do think it unlikely.

Sorry, on my phone so can't seem to attach the link. If you search trove.nla.gov.au and enter "Robert Stonehouse" you should find it
