That is quite progressive, the children would have been recorded as base born (or something) if it wasn't a legal marriage. I would think their would be a marriage contract somewhere!

Roscommon / Re: Drunk as a Skunk Jane Conroy
« on: Saturday 25 December 21 07:18 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for anyone who can find her birth details.
She married George Foster and after her release was gold digging with her family at northern Victoria Australia when she met her death.

Proceedings Before Coroners at Muckleford Victoria 4th July 1855.
Twelve 'good and lawful men' ;
John Walker; George Woolhead; Edward Taylor; James Hill; Richard Martin; Thomas Adams; Edward Williams; David Burnet; William Gill; James Marks; Isac Digney, concluded that Jane Foster (nee Conroy) that;
"The deceased came by her death from injuries received by falling into a hole at Muckleford on the 26th June while in a state of drunkeness"
The 'hole' was a gold mine.
Jane Foster (nee Conroy) had her trial at Longford for vagrancy in 1829 and was transported in 1830.
It is stated that her year of birth was 1809 and her native place was Roscommon.
Her death certificate stated that her father was Michael Conroy.

There is a geni profile that names her mother as Ellen. I wonder where that information is sourced from. Jane was tried at Longford (Townland) could her Catholic baptism be near here?

Thankyou Manukarik, it seems like the best option price wise.

Thankyou so much Sparret, Cando and Majm.

I did not know where in Australia he passed.

All we know is some type of machine accident.

Also not being able to locate the registration did mean we could not order the death certificate and pay for it.

How interesting he changed his name.

Australia / Where is the death registration?

Very confusing

Paul Robert Glentworth died 15 May 1961 (findagrave)
Brian Donald Glentworth died 10th May 1961 (billiongraves)

How would you find the index entry for either of these men at vicbdm?

It appears they are in the same grave? I can't find either in a record outside of Melbourne General Cemetery.

I can see this via old newspapers:

In October 1888 at Dalston (Yorkshire?)  "Daniel Gumble, a young gipsy, was charged with a violent assault upon John Roster, his father-in law, also gipsy".

So possible that you could find Gumble and Roster together in records.

Travelling People / Re: Mary Gritt nee Sherred

Mary Sherred is mentioned briefly on all the Romany websites I've come across (as Granny Gritt), on one or two sites her father Moses is also sometimes mentioned, so I have no doubt they were part of the New Forest Gypsy community. Their occupations were Sweeps, but I have been unable to get any further back and was hoping that someone on here may have connections to the family. Moses wife was Harriet nee Freeman and the Freemans were Sweeps too.

Thanks for the reply

I've found a newspaper article stating that Mary Gritt wife of William Gritt, a chimney sweep died aged 41 on the 6th of January 1883 near Fawley (New Forrest). And that they had 9 children plus some that had died. It appears she passed in childbirth of a son.

So this gives you a death date for Granny Gritt
