Brocks in Australia
« on: Friday 05 September 08 13:34 BST (UK) »
Can anyone please help me find info on George Howard Arthur Brock born in England 1864. He married Ada Crawford and they had a daughter Ada Violet Kortright Brock.

I am completely stuck. I have been told that George and his wife died at a young age but I have no idea whether this is true or not.

Help  :'(

I think this may be a possibility for Ada Violet.
from www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/familyhistory/search.
Marriage
4343/1906
Groom  PHILLIPS  Jacob N
Bride   BROCK  Ada V K Y 
Reg. Dist. GRANVILLE 
the Y is for  "YOUNG"

Death

42742/1973
PHILLIPS  Ada Violet
Father George  Arthur  H 
Mother Ada 
Reg. District Burwood

and if this information is correct there is a digitised war service dossier on
http://naa.gov.au/collection/recordsearch.aspx for Jacob Nathan PHILLIPS, wife Ada Violet.
And Jacobs' obituary is on www.ryersonindex.org.

My Brocks originated from Guernsey. They moved around quite a bit. Spending time in Devon, Somerset/Gloucester (mainly Bristol/Clifton/Bedminster), London and Wales.

I don't think we have any connection to Brocks in Norfolk. They were a family with connections to the military and medical fraternities. Do these places or occupations mean anything to you?

Other names connected with the family are Kortright, Aikin, Carter, Bevan/s and Pearce.

Hope this helps

I know about that lot. Not connected to mine, alas!  :'(

I presume you are connected to Sir Isaac Brock who came from the Channel Isles?
