William WELLS Elizabeth CARSON - QLD
« on: Tuesday 14 July 09 09:07 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I am on the hunt for information regarding William Wells and Elizabeth Carson (born 1833 ireland died 1921 queensland, aus). They immigrated to Australia post 1854 (daughter Margaret was born 1854 in Armagh, Ireland) and they settled in Maryborough. If anyone is searching the same family please help because I know next to nothing about them.

Thanks,
Anna Edwards Brisbane

Hi I hope this information helps

This family arrived on the "Montmorency" which sailed from London, arriving Moreton Bay 4 August, 1865:
William WELLS aged 36, his wife Elizabeth aged 32, and their children - Margaret 8, William 6, and Elizabeth aged 4.

William Wells
Born 1828 Northern Ireland
Married County Armagh, Ireland
Died 2 may 1877 Maryborough Qld
Buried 3 May 1877 Maryborough Cemetery

Elizabeth Carson
Born 1832 County Armagh, Ireland
Died 18 Sept 1921 Maryborough Qld
Buried 19 Sept 1921 Maryborough Cemetery

Death Notice - Maryborough Chronicle dated Monday, September 19, 1921:
WELLS - At the residence of her grand-daughter (Mrs H. Specht), Elizabeth, relict of the late William Wells, and mother of William Wells (Maryborough), and James Wells (Maryborough), Mrs R. H. Whitehead (Bundaberg), Mrs W. Wilson (Maryborough), Mrs J. McCarthy (Brisbane), aged 88 years and nine months.
The Friends of the late Elizabeth Wells, relict of the late William Wells, are requested to attend her Funeral to move from the residence of her grand-daughter, Mrs H. Specht, corner of Pallas and Ella Streets, at 3.30 this afternoon.

 OBITUARY
A very old and respected identity of Maryborough in the person of Mrs Elizabeth Wells, relict of the late Mr William Wells, passed away last night at the residence of her grand-daughter, Mrs H. Specht, Newtown, at the venerable age of 88 years and 9 months. She was born in County Armagh, Ireland, and came out to Queensland with her husband in the ship 'Montmorency' 55 years ago, landing at Bowen, then known as Port Denison. Three years later they came on to Maryborough, where Mrs Wells had resided ever since, her husband having predeceased her about 44 years ago.
She had a family of eleven children, of whom two sons and four daughters are dead (including the late Mr Samuel Wells, of Bundaberg, a noted athlete and long distance runner in his young days in this town). The surviving children are two sons and three daughters, namely, Alderman William Wells, Mr James Wells (both of this city), Mrs R. H. Whitehead (Bundaberg), Mrs W. Wilson (Maryborough), and Mrs J. McCarthy (Brisbane). There are also 33 grandchildren and 56 great-grandchildren.
The deceased lady had enjoyed good health until about three months ago when she met with an accident which sapped her strength and she had since been in declining health. The funeral takes place this afternoon, and the business premises of Messrs W. Wells and Sons will be closed all day.
