Charles and Jane Suffolk (Nee Stephens) Middlesex, Victoria and Adelaide
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 03:38 GMT (UK) »
Looking for any information re the immigration and birth of

Charles and Jane Suffolk (Nee Stephens)

They married March quarter 1862 Bethnal Green, London

Their first daughter Emily Louisa born 23 Sep 1862 Middlesex, England
Their first son William 1864 Middlesex, England
Son George 1866 Middlesex, England

Then daughter Ada born 1871 Victoria
Son Frank born 1875  Victoria

Then daughter Maggie 1878 Adelaide 
Lilly May 1880 Adelaide                   

Jane died 11 June 1893 but the death notes says they have only been in Adelaide 3 weeks so I guess they came and went

Charles died 25 January 1906  aged 74 again buried West Terrace

I can't seem to find a birth or bapt for either or the Ship they may have arrived on....

Hi Cheran

The family arrived in VIC on the ship Great Britain Sep 1868 as unassisted passengers.

TROVE reported Jane had received medical treatment in Melbourne and had returned home three weeks before her death.

Further information re the marriage of Jane's parents.

They were both of the parish and consent was not needed for either party.

They were married by Banns and George signed while Jane made her mark.

The witnesses were Francis HOLMES and Clifford ELISHA
