CRANSTON family
« on: Monday 28 August 17 11:17 BST (UK) »
G'day All,
A friend of mine is in quite a quandery attempting to locate the death of an ancestor and I am hoping someone may be able to assist please.
Henry CRANSTON and his wife Eliza came from Baillieborough, Cavan, Ireland to Australia in about 1876 and settled in the Clarence Valley.
With them were their seven children; Walter Henry, Thomas, Mary Eliza, Edward, William, Richard and Henrietta.
The death of Eliza has been located in 1904 registered at Leichhardt but on her death record her husband is not noted.
It is this husband who creating a problem as to his passing which does not appear on the NSW BMD listings.
Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated please.
Regards Wal

When you say death record, do you mean you hold the entire  1904 certificate of the death of Eliza CRANSTON?

Thanks Sue,
Yes we hold the full certificate for Eliza's death.
The informants were two of the sons.
The children were listed but nothing to denote if Eliza was a widow or if her husband was alive.
Regards Wal

I assume you have ruled out the 1880 death on NSW BDM of a Henry CRANSTON in Goulburn with parents Gideon and Catherine?

There is a death in Victoria https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj
1892 Henry CRANSTON, parents names unknown , age 70 at Melbourne E Hospital.

The death notice says he is 65 http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article196891565

CRANSTON. On the16th day of July, at his son's residence Hoddle-street, Collingwood, Henry Cranston, the dearly beloved father of Mrs. T. Reynolds, of Gladstone place, South Melbourne, aged 65 years.

Is this a possibility?

Ros

adding : No it seems unlikely as Henrietta died unmarried and Mary Eliza married a Kennedy.
Henrietta's death notice and funeral notice - the funeral notice gives some clues to other family http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article27908382

Just looking at marriage notices for the children ...

1884 Walter's marriage http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article62142010
CRANSTON - FISHER. -On the 8th January, at St.Paul's Church, Emmaville, by the Rev. JosephCampbell, M.A., WALTER HENRY, eldest son of HENRY CRANSTON, of Waterview, South Grafton, to EMILY ANN, eldest daughter of HENRY FISHER,

1881  Mary Eliza's marriage http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article62121110

KENNEDY - CRANSTON. -On the 28th June, at South Grafton, by the Rev. R. F. Becher, B.B.,  ISAAC KENNEDY, of Riverston, to MARY ELIZA, eldest daughter of HENRY CRANSTON, of Waterview,  and grand daughter of the late WALTER DANSEY,  Bailieborough, Ireland.

It seems Henry was still alive in 1884

Hi,

Henry was still alive in February 1889.

Thomas Cranston had a dispute with Thomas Champain over a fence at Woolgoolga and the article mentions "Henry Cranston, the father of the plaintiff"

There was also a Henry Cranston at Lisgar, South Grafton in March 1890, posting a reward for stolen cows.

In November 1900 the was a magnificent dairy farm up for sale at South Grafton by order of the Mortgagees, "Lisgar" known as Harry Cranston's  Property.
