Fanny Collins
« on: Thursday 01 February 18 07:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am looking for any details for a Fanny Collins, born in Godstone, Surrey, England in 1856 to a Robert Collins and Rose/Rosa Elliff. Robert died in 1857 but I believe that Fanny and, maybe, Rose/Rosa may have emigrated to Australia. Sadly, if correct, Fanny Collins may have died there in 1861.  Can anyone help me with this family?

Regards

Coreen

Just click on the index entry Coreen to get more info such as age and place of birth (it's not obvious).

I've been looking in the newspapers for a death notice or accident etc but without success so far.

I haven't followed this through properly yet, but there is a death of Rose Anne BRAND (age 46) in 1911 in Victoria whose parents were JOHNSON, William Brand and Rosina ELIFF.

Modified to add: Sorry wivenhoe, looks like you got the family  ;)

Death notice for Martha JOHNSON in 1861 as found by wivenhoe (good finds  :) )
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article5704573

So Martha was Rose's sister and then William married his sister-in-law?
