Somerset / Somerset Records Advice - John OWEN 1827-1895
« on: Sunday 27 January 08 05:51 GMT (UK)  »

I am trying to find information on my great great grandfather's family.

My Great Great Grandfather John Owen emigrated from Somerset to New South Wales, Australia in the mid 1850s, his father was Thomas Owen according to his death certificate. 

His death certificate suggests he arrived here (Aus) 1854 but I have found a potential match for 1856 - the ship Lloyds arriving in Australia from the UK, the ship list has a John Owen on board, same age as my gx2 grandfather.  I have found a John Owen on the 1841 Census the same age, living in Milverton. 

Are there any records in Somerset I can access to try to tie this information together, any records showing residents leaving Somerset?

Please help.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Date Required Please - Completed
« on: Thursday 14 June 07 08:44 BST (UK)  »


I need a date for this photo, not a restoration.  Sorry about the copy but its on a board and too thick to go through my scanner, I don't have the flat bed variety so I've taken a digital photo of the picture.  If its my great great grandparents like I think it might be they were born in 1837 and 1828 - do these ages fit the photo?

Australia / Green Family NSW
« on: Tuesday 01 May 07 03:43 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for descendants of George Green and his wife Sarah Skidmore (died as Sarah Gabb as son-in-law's step-mother) who came to Australia in 1848 Gloucestershire in England.  In particular I'm looking for photos of the early Greens.  George and Sarah's children were Matilda 1822-1845, Mark 1823-1881, Hannah 1828-1895,  Jesse 1831-1901, Edwin 1834-1880, Ann 1837-1897 (my Great Great Grandmother married William Gabb), Mary Ann 1839-1912 and Jeremiah 1842-1842.

Please note, I'm not looking for records of the Green family, NSW BDM has what I need, I'm looking for living relatives who might have some information to help paint the story.

Please feel free to send me a PM.

Amanda  :)
