Seeking John Marriott's siblings
« on: Monday 04 September 17 02:57 BST (UK) »
Can anyone assist me with some information on John Marriott of Campbells Creek Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia. John was the son of Thomas Marriott and Sarah Garner who married on December 6, 1829 in the St. Mary the Virgin church in Eccles, Lancashire. John was born in Eccles around 1832. I would love to know any details on John's siblings and when John travelled to Australia.

He married Jane Stow in Campbells Creek, Victoria on May 21, 1857. I don't know when the Stows travelled to Australia.

John died on 25 March, 1891 and Jane died on August 2, 1897 both share a grave in the Campbells Creek cemetery with two of their children  who died early. I know the names of the children. John was a leading orchardist in the Loddon region and survived a major flood in Campbells Creek and the wreck of the 'Cheviot' ship. An exciting life!

Was Thomas a brewer? There are these baptisms at St Thomas, Pendleton which match the 1841 census, all children of Thomas and Sarah:

Mary  3 Oct 1830
James 19 Jan 1834
Andrew 17 April 1836
Martha 29 July 1838 (Thomas occ - gardener)

I think this is the right family, just found Martha's birth registered    Sep qtr 1838  Salford (20/ 718), mother's maiden name GARNER.  ;)

Modified to add:
and
Alfred - Sep qtr 1840 Salford (20/726)

Based on Jane MARRIOTT's age at death in 1897 (age 73) with parents names John STOW and Jane (BANNISTER), do you think this is the family John Stow and Jane baptising these children in Margate, Kent?

Margaret Bannister STOW bap 14 Dec 1823
Jane STOW      bap 15 Jan 1826
Charles STOW  bap 16 Mar 1828
Eliza Mary Bolton STOWE bap 8 Dec 1833
Ann ELizabeth STOW bap 21 May 1837

In 1861, mother Jane and Ann Elizabeth are at Myddleton St, Clerkenwell London:
Jane Stow                 63    Liverpool, Lancashire (married)
Ann Elizabeth Stow    24    Margate, Kent

RG09/198 / 46

But difficult to find in the other censuses.  ???

Regarding when Jane STOW arrived in Australia, this obit says she was a colonist of 45 years, so arrival c 1852.
