Hi Robyn,

Some thoughts

Do you have any thoughts of a possible middle name for Harriett, or do you know of her sponsors names from baptismal card perhaps .... thinking she may have been known by those names.

Harriett ... several of my forebears carried that name, variations in spelling on online indexes included Harriott and Marriell but the actual records read Harriet (one "t") .... Perhaps Arnold could be wrongly indexed as say Ornold etc ...

Hope these thoughts help

Cheers,

JM

JM,

No middle name for her at all.

Check all spellings even H*T

Her sister changed her name from Elizabeth to Isabella (not on legal documents though) and U have a good dispute with her grandchildren who insist that she Isabella and never Elizabeth, but birth cert, marriage cert, and death cert, and registrations of all children have her as Elizbeth. I knew her as Gaunt Isabel and if my mother still going sttrong at 83 hadn't known that she was really Elizabeth she may have been harder to trace.

There is the real posibility that she changed her name also.

The group of Arnolds, MCLaughlins , McKelvies who  went to WA betwenn 1895 and 1901 seemed to have been in involved with a religious sect. Many are buried in "Bretheren"  graves in Karrakatta.  So she may well have married and gone o's with the sect.

regards

Do Brethren keep records of all their members, do you know?   Like we keep baptismal records etc I mean?

Is that worth a go?

I would have thought the marriage posted in Vic in reply#11 would have eliminated them from your research :).

Cando,

For me that definitely ruled out the Harriet Arnold  &  Higgins  marriage and I am not even looking there.

I have also ruled out the Harriet Arnold George Nicholls Hunter marriage.

But I still do not know what happened to her. She was still living aged c 46 when her mother died in 1925 . Her siblings lived to be mostly 80 and over.  So if she is not with the bretheren then she may not show up in online records for some time. One sister lived to 100.

thanks for your continued interest

Hi,
My name is Christine Hunter.  I have information on Harriett.
She was born in Castlemaine Vic in 1872, parents William Arnold and Eliza Morton.  She had an older sister also named Harriett who died prior to the second Harriett being born.
Around 1900 Eliza, Harriett, sister Rebecca and brother John moved to Fremantle WA where they had a boarding house.  George Nicholls Hunter lodged there and married Harriett in 1905, she put her age down by 4 years as she was 8 years older than George.  Eliza and Rebecca later returned to Victoria.
They had 5 children, Gwendoline Maud, James Allen, Barbara Madge, George Nicholls (Jnr) and Kenneth Arnold (my father in law).
George (Snr) died in 1949 and Harriett in 1956, they are buried in Bunbury cemetery.
George (Jnr) moved to Geelong and died on a trip back to Perth, he was cremated at Karrakatta cemetery and his ashes returned to his family in Geelong.
My father in law Kenneth married Jessie Allen, they had 3 children - Lorraine Joan, George Arnold (my husband) and Maxwell Allen.
My husband George has 3 sons from his 1st marriage, we have none together.  My husband is the last George Hunter.
I hope this answers all the questions.
Please email me if you require further information.  I have all relevant certificates - births, marriages and deaths.
Regards,
Christine Hunter

Unfortunately you have arrived too late for Robyn, who died some time ago.  :'(
