Philip Henry AYDON
« on: Tuesday 24 April 12 17:41 BST (UK) »
Hi

Looking for info on Philip Aydon, he married Agnes Rosa Anne Smith in 1853, Victoria.  Had at least 3 children. One being Archibald Alexander who went to NZ.   He was born in England in 1826.  Can't find when he arrived  in Australia, or anything about his life there, any help would be great.

Any info on Agnes would also be  FAB.  She was born 1830 England and Died 1875 New Zealand.

A possible daughter ...?

A Kate Rickards (widow of Henry Rickards theatrical promoter) died in 1923 and left money to her brothers Frederick and Archibald Aydon.
