Seeking descendants and related families for genealogy purposes.

Is that not what this website is for?

Looking for related family.

The head of this family worked for several Gaols in Victoria as Turnkey and Governor. His descendants worked as a teacher in Cobram, a newspaper manager in Cobram, and farmer? in Corryong.

Would love to hear from related families either on this board or privately.

Dear Betty and Grandarog,

Thank you so very much for your replies! I do have a World memberhsip to "" and still no luck in finding records.

Curious if anyone has any better resources than "" for Australian, India, or other non-US sources pertaining to immigration? Their records give nothing much more than names...


Kent / Samuel Walker & Eliza Walker; Kent - Post 1851
« on: Tuesday 09 December 08 10:48 GMT (UK)  »
After many years searching, I'm still completely flustered regarding the whereabout of Samuel Walker, b. about 1803, Canterbury and his second wife, Eliza after 1851.

Samuel was formerly the Governor of Abingdon, Berks prison. In 1851, he and Eliza are in Greenwich:

1851 England Census, Kent, Greenwich, Greenwich West, District 11
HO 107/1586
Ashburnham Grove
Walker, Samuel, Head of household, Married, age 45, Annuitant born Kent, Canterbury
Eliza, Wife, Married, age 40, Annuitant born Oxford
William, Son, Unmarried, age 17, Apprentice born Berkshire, Abingdon
Charles G., Son, Unmarried, age 11, Scholar at home, born Berks, Abingdon
Eliza G., Daughter, Unmarried, age 6, Scholar at home, born Berks, Abingdon
Thompson, Charles G., Visitor, Unmarried, age 30, Tailor born Oxford

I've been through Ancestry 100+ times, trying every conceivable name option and haven't found a thing past 1851. They've vanished, including Eliza's brother Charles G. Thompson.

It sounds unreasonable that they may have all died before the 1861 census, and there are no clear BMD records without spending a small fortune on certificates.

Samuel born about 1803-4 Canterbury
Eliza born 1809 Oxford

My gut instinct tells me that they left England, but I can't prove that either.

Might anyone have suggestions about further searching? Thank you in advance for your replies...

Oxfordshire Lookup Requests / Oxfordshire Marriage Lookup Please

Hoping to find the location/parish for the following marriage:

1732      Eaton, Deodatus of Oxford and Hicks, Jane of Oxford

Thank you in advance for any help!

Just an idea, and I don't know how difficult this might be to implement since I have no background in writing computer programs.

It would be wonderful if when we look at our surname interests, that we had the option to see the results in a "table" format, each area separated in boxes. Results able to be ordered by surname and/or county.

It's difficult to scan the entries as they are for possible matches, especially when the surname is a very common one.

Thank you for your consideration.  :)

Looking for the baptism/parents of Ella Allin b. abt. 1810 at High Wycombe, Iffley, Oxfordshire. I suspect that her father might be Richard Allin, widowed farmer of Littlemore in the 1851 census.

Also looking for the marriage of the same Ella Allin in 1836 to William Thompson at Iffley. The exact parish unknown, it may be Littlemore or Iffley.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Staffordshire / Lichfield Maltings
« on: Friday 06 June 08 07:45 BST (UK)  »
I'm seeking information on the Lichfield Maltings that were closed in the last decade or so. Was this Malting an independent company, or did they produce for a large brewing organization? Is this the same Malting that was converted into residential dwellings in recent years?

A relative, Henry O. Evans retired from there as Maltster before his death about 6 years back.

If anyone worked there and would like to share background on the firm, I'd love to hear from you. Thank you in advance for your help.  :)
