Joseph Archer ALDRED / father George ALDREDred
« on: Wednesday 08 August 12 23:45 BST (UK) »
Hi, I have exhausted my efforts in tracing the Arrival to Australia of Joseph Archer ALDRED b. 3.01.1839,Yorkshire, UK d. 3.11.1906, ( my Great grandfather) his wife Lucy Elizabeth ALDRED (Nee Conwell) 1848, d. 1917, their possibly four children, Ada Elizabeth Ann ALDRED, David Wheatley ALDRED, Edward Frederick ALDRED, and  Charlotte Amelia ALDRED b. Coonoar, Hedy, India. They would have sailed from India, maybe Madras around 1878 -80.  I have considerable information on Lucy Elizabeth Conwell.
Charlotte was born in 1877. India.
Their next child was born in Tasmania 1880 . She was Eva May ALDRED.
Family hints say they may have gone to New Zealand first, then others say they were given or purchased a government land Grant at Turners Marsh in Tasmania.( Joseph died there.)

I am also trying to determine who Joseph Archer ALDRED father was. There are a number of George ALDREDs, but the one I think most likely is George ALDRED b. 1808 in Wakefield, Yorkshire.
married Ann Archer  born 1809 in Dewesbury Yorkshire. (Hence the name "Archer" appearing in the childrens names.
I again have family hints that Joseph was a Police Inspector in India, though no proof.
Questions are how and why did Joseph go to India ?
When and how  did they arrive in Australia ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if you can just point me in the right direction.
Many grateful thanks.
Lindal Byard

Hi Lindal,

 ;D Welcome to RootsChat   ;D

You would need to see the documentation for the marriage and baptisms in India to find Joseph's occupation there.  The microfilm can be ordered to your nearest family history society or LDS centre.  Alternatively you can order a printout of the entries for a nominal fee.

What was his occupation in Tasmania?

Hi, I have been doing my family tree and May Eva Aldred was my great grandmother, she was born in Turners Marsh.  Apparently Joseph Aldred was a Police Inspector in India and a farmer in Turners Marsh.  He was granted land in Lower Turners Marsh and came here via New Zealand from Hyderabad before 1900.  My research shows that Joseph was born on the 3/1/1839 at North Hall, Leeds, Yorkshire and his father was George Aldred who was born about 1807 in Wakefield Yorkshire.  George had two wives - Isabella Rowe - born in India (Indo- Briton) and Ann Archer.

My research shows that George and Ann had 4 children - Edwin, Emma, George, Tom
and George (widowed) and Isabella had 2 children - Joseph, Isabella
I am not completly sure of the accuracy of this information as the birth dates overlap between wives.

Regards Michele
