Looking for a marriage between Alice Constance Martin and William King,(could be Harry William King). William was born in Suffolk England in 1853, the first child to William and Alice was Constance King born 1895. Williams previous wife, Grace, died in 1892 so the marriage would be some time between 1892 and 1895. Thanks.

Suffolk / William Hembling 1853 Union Workhouse, Shipmeadow.
« on: Saturday 22 September 18 03:19 BST (UK)  »
Looking for information on William Hembling born1853 Union Workhouse, Shipmeadow, illegitimate son of Susannah Hembling and stepson of William King. He has 2 known siblings, Georganna 1849 and Richard 1851 both illegitimate and born in Union Workhouse, Shipmeadow. Their mother Susannah later married William King.
Last positive siting of William Hembling is 1871 census Bungay, Suffolk, living with William and Susan King and his step siblings and then he dissapears.
Family stories say he went to India and arrived  in 1872 may of had 2 marriages, first to Grace D Royle around 1877 where they are both registered as widowed and maybe she died in 1892. The second marriage to Alice Constance Martin. As I said these are mainly stories and if he was widowed in 1872 he must of had a previous wife maybe in England. Any help appreciated.

Where do I start looking for German births and baptisms.
Looking for the birth of Hermann Bollmann born about 1844,  Lesum, Hannover, Lower Saxony, Germany or Bremerhaven, Bremen, Germany. He left Bremerhaven as a crew member of the
SS Louis Kniffler bound for Sydney, Australia in 1865. In 1869 he married Rebecca Funston who was born in Ireland about 1851, Rebecca arrived in Sydney in 1865. Hermann died in 1916, Leichhardt, New South Wales. I've searched about every where online but can't locate his birth or parents.

Australia / Mystery man in Tasmania.
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 01:02 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find where Cornelius Gibbons originated from. He married Jane Pearmain in Port Sorell 25 Oct 1862, Jane arrived from England 10 Mar 1862 on the ship "Solway" from London. I can't find a passenger list for the Solway to see if Cornelius was with her then also I can't find him on a list of convicts so when did he arrive in Tasmania? He was 26 at the time of his marriage so that makes him born around 1836, the witnesses to the marriage were Elizabeth Chatwin and Alfred Chatwin, Elizabeth was Jane's sister and she married Alfred 19 Apr 1858 in Port Sorell. There is a prisoner in Liverpool city gaol in 1851, Cornelius Gibbons age 14 a dock labourer but I have'nt been able to find his crime or conviction to see if he was transported. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
