GAUNT Sydney Percy
« on: Monday 18 June 18 06:10 BST (UK) »
We have people on our tree who say they are descended from Sydney GAUNT born in London 1826, Married 1851, Mary Teresa (or Teresa Mary) CURR, died Tasmania 1900.  He had a daughter 1853, who died aged 1 yr, and a son - see below.  We think there are only those two children.

The link would be Sydney Percy GAUNT born 1859 Tasmania, married 1904  Rosa May (Daisy) Turmine,  died 1939.   But we can't find anything else about him. 

Father, Sydney,  died intestate so no help there.

Are there any clever researchers out there who can shed some light on this family please?
All help very gratefully received.

Examiner 21Aug1900 https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/35367968
MR. SYDNEY GAUNT.
Mr. Sydney Gaunt, of Windermere, passed away at his residence yesterday, after a long and painful illness. Deceased, who was 74 years of age, was the eldest son of Mr. Matthias Gaunt, M.D., who came to the colony in its early days and took up a grant of 3000 acres at Windermere. Another son is Mr. Edward Gaunt, of this city. Mr. Sidney Gaunt followed agricultural pursuits for the greater part of his life, first at Windermere, later on at Carrick, and again at Windermere, where he spent the last 20 years. He also took an active part in public affairs, and leaves a widow and one son, Mr. Percy Gaunt, to mourn their loss. The funeral takes place at 3 p.m. to-day.

Thanks Cupoflife - that is the one in my first post!  Great!  Yes that is the father.

( It is the son and his 'progeny' we are looking for. )   The age at death for Sydney, confirms that the date in Tassie archives of 1836 is incorrect for his birth - he was in fact born in London in 1826 and registered in Tasmania 1836.

Wivenhoe - thanks for that - I Have just found the first son Sydney Charles born 1905 - haven't found the others yet - still looking.
Edit -
They have named them!!   ;) ;)   Wonderful!    Thanks so much - makes life easier!

Great help and I will keep searching.

Sorry Wivenhoe - no I don't think there is an earlier marriage. 

You said three children   -  That is good -
Edit to remove names.
We are looking for rellies down the female line - so now we need Teresa  Gaunt marrying someone Dickson. 

No she married Westlake - one of the son's daughters then.     I MUST learn to read more carefully.

Great help - thanks so much.

Is this of use to you Wiggy?  I think I may have found this a few years ago when you were looking for Gaunt - but the link is still on my screen.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained though!
