looking for Ebenezer FOX
« on: Sunday 29 May 11 07:04 BST (UK) »
Ebenezer Fox came to Australia and married a Ann Terrey 12 September 1876.
I think he came from England did look on the familysearch.org found a
Ebenezer Fox christened on 21 March 1852 baptised at Westleyan Methodist,
Kirkgate, Bradford, York, England.    Parents were David Fox and Mary Ann Evan.
When did he come to Australia?   Also what means were used to bring him here?

Thanks for your

There are links to excellent resources at the top of the board -
Australian Resources and Offers
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/board,399.0.html
Each state is also listed individually....including shipping records.  Perhaps have a browse and search, after all we also use the links to search for you ;D

Cheers

Perhaps I have misunderstood but are you seeking information apart from shipping records?

Shipping records would be good.  I was also wondering if he had any brothers or sisters as I have no Idea.

Hi there,

If they were not born in the colonies, then they came by ship, however not all the passenger lists are extant, and even when they are, sometimes the lists only have the initials for the given names, or worse still, only give "X" number of emigrants in steerage.


There's at least two very good online free to search site for arrivals to NSW, and of course NSW was one of six colonies so each colony was responsible for its own administrative procedures.

Those two online sites are linked at the RChat resources board, but here they are again

mariners and ships in Australian waters  http://mariners.records.nsw.gov.au/

NSW State Records Office http://www.records.nsw.gov.au/state-archives/ 'Online' microfilm of shipping lists, 1838-96. Try it now!  (coloured Red as that's how the site shows it too)

Cheers,  JM

Just expanding on Gerry's info...

Children other than Ebenezer are:
Elizabeth, 16, domestic servant, native of Temple Cloud, Somerset
David, 13, labourer, native of Launceston, Cornwall
Mary, 3, native of Bradford, York

Father David is native to Canterbury, Kent.
Mary Ann is native to Shepton Mallet, Somerset, and her parents details on the shipping record also have their surname - EVANS.  Relative in the colony for Mary Ann is a brother William EVANS per Winifred.

This appears to be mistake, her brother's name was James:

Winifred
Arr. 1 Nov 1856

James EVANS, 24, Woolcomber, native of Sutton, North Molton, Devon, parents William and Ann, mother at Bradford, Yorkshire (father is still a mystery), read and write
Martha EVANS, 23, native of Bradford, Yorkshire, parents John and Mary URQUHART, father at Bradford, neither read nor write
William, 3, native of Bradford, Yorkshire
Sarah, 1, native of Bradford, Yorkshire
No relatives in the colony.

I think it is James and Martha's marriage at Bradford in 1851 with Martha's surname as HACKETT
