Probably Liverpool, New South Wales in 1882.  Age is out but there aren't any other's.

Cheshire / John GARSIDE, alias Smith. Native of Cheshire.

Hi team

My convict, John GARSIDE alias Smith was sentenced at Knutsford on 17 October 1836 to 7 years transportation for 'Stealing Soap'.  Looks like a couple of others were found guilty of the same offence at the same time.  He was transported to New South Wales on 14 July 1837 on the 'Asia II'.

The prison hulk register states he was married but also suggests their were no children to the marriage as others on the register do.  I do not know who his wife was, but that is one of my requests.

The register also states, 'Once in gaol for Bastardy'.  I dont know the name of the child or mother.  That is another of my requests.

I also dont know where the 'alias Smith' comes into it?!

John GARSIDE spent the rest of his life in New South Wales.  He married again in 1844.

Thanks in advance.

That's what I was thinking.  His name doesn't appear on the CWGC website as War casualty.

"My great grandfather James Augustus Reynolds....... had 7 children all alive except for my grandfather Maxwell Bryant Reynolds who was born in Mitchell qld 1946- passed away 1983 glen Innes in a car accident"

What do they know about their parents? Have you spoken with them?

No names because they are alive, but where and when were they born.

The death certificate 1970, how does it account for children of James Augustus REYNOLDS.  Does it accurately name the seven children.....correct ages, birth order?

Just looking at the transcripts of the two dc's we have.

In 1970 when James Augustus REYNOLDS died.  The informant was his WIDOW, Mary Ellen HARDY, married circa 1924.

In 1983 when his son Maxwell Bryant REYNOLDS died.  The informant was his MOTHER, E M McMAHON.  Mother on DC is Edna May RIXON, same person.

Can we place Mary Ellen HARDY?!  Doesn't it seem UNLIKELY that they are 2 different ladies?!

bitzar.

Edna May RIXON/McMAHON was definitely the mother of Maxwell Bryant REYNOLDS. Only two surviving sons were named on her headstone in the Glen Innes cemetery.

I cannot see why the widow of James would need to change her name from Mary
Ellen (nee) HARDY to Edna May (nee) RIXON when Maxwell died in 1983.

Hang on....  Neeky said there were 7 children and only 1 had died?!
