I have absolutely no idea but .... I don't see Johannes as a particularly Russian name. Might the first letter of the surname be W and ending in a k with a c and j in the middle? Seems like it might have a bit of a Polish ring to it.  :)

A very wild guess though.

Would this surname appear on any other documents? Does the naturalisation form give an interpretation of the surname?


Lin- Spinner

The 't' is not crossed so I am not convinced it is a t, though I can't work out what else it could be.  :)

Added: I see there is an occupation of Lint Dresser, so I presume this is Lint Spinner.
I would look at Catherine in other censuses to see what her occupation is for comparison.

That is wonderful Comberton, thank you very much.

Since posting this question I have come to the conclusion that sadly, this is the wrong Elizabeth. I found this Elizabeth with her family on a few censuses including the 1861 as an unmarried 28 year old. "My" Elizabeth was married to Samuel in 1857.

I am still working on finding the correct Elizabeth. I think I have found her with Samuel but have run out of time today to investigate further so will continue the search tomorrow.

That is definitely the right Samuel though.  :)

Thanks again.

Genuki tells me that baptisms for 1832/1833 for both Gamlingay and Barrington are at Cambridgeshire Archives.

Does anyone know if they are available elsewhere, or does anyone have any transcripts or CDs which contain these baptisms?

I am looking for Samuel John Barltrop Allbon - 20 Feb 1833 - Gamlingay
Elizabeth Jane Coleman - 24 Dec 1832 - Barrington

This couple married in Islington in 1857. His father is George, a grocer. Her father is John, a farmer.

Information is from a tree on Familysearch so unsure of accuracy. I do not know if the dates given are for births or baptisms.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

Looking at the women's fashions, a guess at the date - possibly 20s/30s?

Someone will probably be able to narrow that down further.

I'm afraid I don't know how long it would have taken a ship to get from Britain to Australia in 1872.

Generally about three months ....

I agree we need a better scan.

Is Allan's occupation Sawyer? If the first letters weren't so different I would guess that Catherine was a Servt something or other ...

First letter is likely to be an L.

Added: I see Ancestry have transcribed it as "Lins Spinner". I don't think that is quite right but second word could be Spinner. We need to see a clearer image and if possible can you include examples of capital Ls and Ss from the same page for comparison? :)

I agree that there is some resemblance especially the eyes. The girls nose is bigger though.

I agree with Carol about the date range.

I think they are all Presbyterian JM. I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.  :)
