Australia / James GREENSLADE Convict
« on: Thursday 08 July 21 04:32 BST (UK)  »
Hello all,
I have recently discovered a relative of mine, James GREENSLADE, may have been transported to Tasmania in 1844 aboard the "Anson".
I can't find any details about him.
I am finding the new LINC page extremely difficult to navigate.
Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction ?
His parents were
William GREENSLADE and Mary PRICHARD.
He was born in 1814. His siblings were born in Bath Somerset, I have been unable to find a birth for James either.
TIA

New Zealand Completed Requests / Harry Keetley Kaipoi.
« on: Thursday 12 September 19 05:44 BST (UK)  »
Hello all,
I have just found what I think is my Great Grandfather mentioned in the Police Gazettes in 1897 where he was found guilty of not paying Maintenance for a child of W.A Bayliss.
I found this article in Papers Past
https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/CHP18980308.2.14.2?query=keetley&page=2&start_date=01-08-1897&end_date=01-10-1898&snippet=true

This is the first time I have heard about my Great Grandfather possibly fathering another child apart from my Grandfather Eric Blundell JONES ( another man names James JONES was listed on his BC as his father but this wasn't true ) in Kaipoi in 1910.
I have looked on NZ BMD and not found a birth of a child to a WA BAYLISS.
Where would I look for further information about this Court Hearing and finding out who this child was ?
TIA

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Marriage at St Mary's 1818
« on: Thursday 24 January 19 00:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hello,
Would someone please advise where I would be able to find a Marriage Certificate/ Transcription for William PRICE and Caroline Philadelphia Elizabeth PARLER ( my 4 X Great Grandparents ) married 11 Oct 1819 • Newington St Mary, England ?
I have found this on LDS but don't know where to find it- or what further information may be on it-
England Marriages, 1538–1973 Indexing Project (Batch) Number M05563-1 System Origin England-ODM GS Film number 307696, 307697, 307698, 307699, 307700, 307701, 307702, 307703

I can't find a birth for either of them or a Death for William who I think died in about 1824. They had 2 sons
John Henry b 1820?
and William b 1823- my 3 X Great Grandfather.
Caroline was transported to Australia in 1836 and died in Sydney in 1865.
William ( son )  also came to Australia ( Free) and died in 1866.
Mother & son are both buried in the Newtown Cemetery Sydney.
There is NO information on her Death Certificate - the informant was someone from the Infirmary she died in.
I can't find anything about William and Caroline prior to Caroline's arrival in Australia.
TIA

Hello all,
I am trying to help someone from America who is the Grandson of Harry CHANDLER b 10.8.1878 - date from US Army records. I can't find his birth on NSW BMD
He arrived in New York 1905 on the "Minnehaha" which had left London 23.9.1905 - Info from New York Passenger List.
He married Martha A ROMY and had 2 children Harry R b 1911 and Adele b 1913.
Harry left this family when Harry Junior was a small boy and they don't know what happened to him.
The grandson doesn't know Harry's parents names but is sure he was born in Sydney.
Looking for:
His birth.
Parents.
Travel to London before 1905,
Death.
Any ideas ?
Regards
Alison

Australia / Legal requirement for naming a father on a BC.
« on: Thursday 26 January 12 00:40 GMT (UK)  »
Hello Rootschatters,
I have a query ???
When you register a child today { in VIC at least} the father has to sign the application stating he is the father.
Was this always the case or could the mother just nominate a person as the father ? If this was the case when did it change ?
Regards

Australia / Sydney Ward of State/ Orphanage Records.
« on: Monday 16 January 12 01:40 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all,

I am helping a friend.

Her father was born in  1917 in Sydney to his 15 year old mother and was made a ward of the state and placed in care.
My friend doesn't know where he was placed .
He was removed from care after his mother married  in 1919.
Where could we find this information ?

This man  changed his name and acquired a new birth certificate in his mother's 2nd husband's name  in 1959.
His mother had re-married in 1940.
Where would the records for this be held ?

Regards
Alison
