Yorkshire (West Riding) / Ilkley Parish Records - Robert CHAPMAN 1815
« on: Wednesday 08 June 11 04:43 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

I am trying to find a birth record for Robert Chapman who was born about 1815-1816 in Yorkshire, possibly in Ilkley. 

Robert left England about 1838 and went to Australia and then to New Zealand.  He died in Melbourne in 1882 aged 67, his death certificate states his fathers name is John Roberts and he was a farmer, but I am unsure if the surname Roberts is correct.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks
Jenny

Armed Forces / Boer War death
« on: Tuesday 01 June 10 09:45 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

I'm looking for information on Thomas Samuel WILSON who died in the Boer War around 1900.  He was from London and married to Eleanor Barnes.  Are there any records of deaths in the Boer war?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

Australia / RIX Family NSW
« on: Tuesday 01 June 10 09:28 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

I am looking for information on the family of Robert Rix and Bridget Fahey in NSW.   Specifically I am trying to find a birth record for their daughter Fanny born in Mudgee between 1859-1863. 

Robert Rix died 1901 aged 76 in Sydney, his parents were Robert and Elizabeth Rix, not sure where he was born.

Bridget Fahey died in 1891 aged 62 in Sydney, she is apparently from Ireland, came over during Irish Famine.

Robert and Bridget apparently had 12 children, and I have found most of these on the NSW BDM index.  I have not managed to find any birth record for Fanny born in Mudgee between 1859-1863.  Fanny married Frank Rolls in 1892, they moved to NZ.

Any information much appreciated.

Thanks
Jenny
