Davis - Ewhurst Sussex/NSW Australia
« on: Saturday 27 November 10 18:05 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Looking for any connections to Benjamin Davis and Hannah Jarman (various spellings) married 1811.

Benjamin died in Sussex England and Hannah remarried a Cuckney and went

to Australia in 1938 and settled in the Raymon Terrace area NSW

Hello pkj47

That is an old post - 2010 - but years later it yeilded something.

So, you are a descendant of Hannahís brother William - l have very little on her siblings/parents.

I descend from Hannahís daughter Jane Davis who married 3xís and had 10 children.

Hannah - Jane Davis - Henry Jones/Barnes - Alfred Barnes - ....

Hannah is my 4 x grt grandmother.

Would like to hear from you when you have time ?

Merry Christmas

Jamison

Happy Christmas to you. What luck to receive a reply from an old post. I will put together some other bits that may be of interest and decide where to go from there. We are in NSW Australia and live a couple of hours from Raymond Terrace where Hannah lived.
Regards
Pam

Hi Pam

Wow thanks for the quick reply !

Just off the top of my head there was a sister too.

Rachel who married a George Burgess and went out to Australia with Hannah & James Cuckney.

Just google their names and you will come up with 3/4 websites.

Cheers

Jamison

William and Sarah Jarman (CREED) maybe had as many as 13 children. I knew Elizabeth, Mary Ann, Jane Amelia and Henry (our ancestor) all came to Australia, although not together. I now know Hannah came also. I do not know much about William - married Jane Tozer, Francis, John, Horace, Sarah Ann, Benedicta, Clara and Richard. I don't have a Rachel, will follow up.
Henry and wife Mary, sister Mary Ann and Jane with husband James Gorham and also daughter Maria came to Australia on 'Westminster' in 1838.
Followed up another 10 year old lead re Davis family and received a reply - wow. I am sorting that info will send later.
Happy New Year to you also. Pam

Hello Pam

Nice to hear from you.

Been looking at Williamís family over the weekend - it is a very big family indeed.

But how do you know that your William is the brother to my Hannah.

I have Hannah, Rachel, and (another) Ann the daughters of John Jarman and Elizabeth Sinden on looking through my notes.

Cheers

Jamison

From the information I have I didn't think your Hannah and my Hannah were the same person. I thought they may be cousins?? the link may be in the previous generation. I don't have any documentation for Hannah only that she was christened in Ewhurst Green 7 March 1809 and her older sister Elizabeth (BARWICK)(abt 1807) went to Tasmania and her younger sisters Mary Ann(1811) and Jane(GORHAM) (1814) and Henry (1817) all came to Sydney I wondered if Hannah had died. I'll check the other Davis notes I have and we can compare dates.  Thanks.
