Somerset / Re: MARY JANE STOCKMAN (BLANK)

Hi Thanks very much for the extra information.  Interesting what you find out isn't it with Bertie being Sarahs son, even though I found the baptism of Bertie in 1872 with Mary J and Charles being his parents.  Looks like an informal adoption I guess.  Anyway I will put on my pedigree sheet (for now!) that Catherine DOYLE and William STOCKMAN are Mary Janes parents, seems like solid evidence to prove that.

At some stage I will do more research on Catherine DOYLE, if she really was born in St. Heliers Jersey or perhaps Ireland, Doyle is Irish for sure, so at least I know her origins, which is great.  Thanks everyone for your input and time.  Very much appreciated.  Kindest regards from Sunny Sydney Dianna

Sorry guy's but on Ernest William Francis HOPE'S marriage to Sarah Jane Towell it states his dad is ERNES PHILLIP HOPE deceased and that Ernie was a 32 year old Bachelor born in Marrickville Sydney NSW, Occupation Metal Worker.  So very confusing really!!!  Would be interesting to see the birth certificates of the children of Sarah Jane Towell and Ernest W. F. HOPE.  Will we ever figure this out???
Regards Dianna

Hi Jsmp.  Do you think you could please ask your Grandmother about the story of the child who was burnt/killed in the fire.  I believe/think she may have been the sister of Ernest William Francis HOPE your Great Grandfather or some relative at least.  I looked everywhere in the trove newspaper site but could not find anything.  The same with trying to find Ernest's birth in NSW.  Just not there!!  Of course he could have been born anywhere!!! Anyway will be fun to see what turns up, I know Betty had a DNA test (according to your cousin Rodney) and it showed 25% Indian blood, was that correct. Anyway hope we can find out more about Ernie. LOL.  Regards Dianna

Hi I cannot believe someone replied to this message/messages who is actually related.  I am Rodneys aunty by marriage and I tried to take on this research because I found it so fascinating.  Only on Xmas day did Rodney mention to me the story of the chair and the balancing act.  Absolutely amazing, surely there must be some way we can work out the origins of Ernest HOPE. I have a few certificates I purchased.  Will read over everything again now.  You must be Betty's granddaughter is that correct.  Wow great to speak with you.  Regards Dianna

Looking at the three baptism's (family search) England, Devon Bishop's Transcripts, 1558-1887.  William 1834, Elizabeth 1836 and Sarah HAND// 1838.  Father William is a laborer.

I guess I should be looking for Bishops transcripts for Somerset?? For Mary Jane Perhaps if that exists.  Dianna

Looking at this I cannot see an occupation! BUT from memory the baptism of William and Elizabeth he was a laborer will double check though.  Dianna

Hi I think William was a labourer!!  I will have to relook at the census.  Not sure what the 1841 Census had for occ!  I thought at first that they were in the workhouse/poorhouse.  My assumption seeing as Union was mentioned on Possibly Mary Janes birth registration.  Thanks Dianna
