Australia / Re: John Murray Maitland NSW 1850's

Hi,

I am sure that Jen will not misunderstand when I write ... How sure are you that John MURRAY was still with Margaret for all three babies...
Looking for a death record for John Murray who married Margaret Jennings on 8th June, 1837 in Maitland NSW.  Have located 3 children born to this couple, Anne Jane 1842, Mary 1849 and John A, 1851.  Family records indicate that John was a former soldier possibly from the 3rd Regiment of Foot (Buffs).

It may be sensible to look earlier for the burial of John... 

The Australian Joint Copying Project would likely include payroll and musters for the Buffs.  Likely held at NLA Canberra and Mitchell Library, Sydney.

I am not home at present, but if you do a search at RChat I am sure you will find posts where I mention the project - I wish they would consider digitising and uploading the reels...  ::)

Volume 37a for the NSW BDM Early Church Records ... Maitland ... errr .... possibly findable within C of E and Christ Church Cathedral (Newcastle Diocese), and these are online, no charge images ... see RChat's NSW resources board, or search at RChat for err ... where I have mentioned that  ;D
(Volumes 1 to 44 are C of E) - if John MURRAY was buried C of E Maitland or anywhere within Newcastle Diocese, you should find burial in those images,  same with baptisms and with marriages  ;D

Fingers crossed, sorry I cannot be part of the searching through at the moment.  :-X

I think there's several:
a) the chap the OP has found
b) the chap Sue has found
c) there's a chap by that name in the same decade (1911-1920) in the Balmain district
d) there's a chap by that name in the same decade (1911-1920) in the Waverley district

I have not looked through my offline resources for NSW in the earlier decade 1901-1910, and it could be a week or more before I can  ::)  :-X

Red Post
Agh, so that will likely eliminate the chap the OP was considering...   age/middle name  ;)

Hi,

NSW BDM online index has a death registration for Michael J TIERNEY registered in the Narrandera district, in 1916 with parents as Michael and Anne...  Their reference #9853.

Do you have copy of that d.c. or copy of the official transcription of the d.c.?

It should give you details that will help you to confirm or eliminate that chap from your research as NSW BDMs are quite informative, including information such as the deceasedís:
Age at death
Where born
How long in the colony/state
If married, when/where, to whom
If children, their names and ages
Occupation
Usual address
Parents names, including mumís nee name
Cause/s of death
Length of illness
Where buried/cremated
And other vital family history infoÖ.

If you don't have that NSW BDM record, may I suggest that the official transcription will be the better alternative...  https://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/Pages/family-history-research/family-history-search.aspx

It is possible that the chap whose death certificate I am writing about did not die in Narrandera.  NSW BDM notes it as registered in the Narrandera district.    I am wondering if the chap may have died about 12 May 1916, and was buried in Ganmain Cemetery, which is around 50 kms from Narrandera...  The NSW BDM index drills down to that date. and family search has the following:

There is a death indexed on the Victorian BDM in 1969.  The deceased's father is displayed as James CROAL.  The deceased's name is female and the surname is NOT  Croal, so likely that is her maiden surname. 

I will send Tony a PM.

attaching a pdf of sorts  ::)   

Shhhhhhhhhh .... I will get there,  I will  ::)

nope,  the file is too large.   So it is for:
413 Jame CROAL
HO 24/15 P. 11 parkhurst register

Likely Tony will have already accessed it, but it does mention that he was apprenticed to a W Barker, as a shoemaker.   He was later noted as a shepherd, working on his own account.  and then .... TR 13, shepherd, (master as J SEWELL), indentures have expired.... HE HAS NOT YET APPLIED FOR HIS WAGES...  (my capitals, 'n colour etc to highlight ... not collected wages ... why not ... perhaps ill/or worse ...) .... no date but I think would be circa 1850 ish as indentures were 5 years.

Hi Tony,

I am in NSW, so far from the WA Archives, and I realise you are even far further away from them.  I can see that it may be that there's archival material that needs to be examined in person :

I hope there are regular RChatters based in Perth WA who may be able to look up there.

Cheers,   JM

Hopefully Rhonda will resolve it all before the weekend, and fingers crossed let us all know online rather than by PM
