Other Countries / Re: Buccianti, late 18th/early 19th Egypt
« on: Wednesday 15 September 21 07:12 BST (UK)  »
Yes Hillhurst, my great grandfather was Alfred Hall. He married Adèle Tourneau, daughter of Emilie Buccianti and Eugene Tourneau. I do not know when they were married but her name was given in a French documents of her children's births. She was born, I think, in Alexandria, as was her daughter Adèle. I think she died in Port Said (or Ash Shariquiyah) c.1916. (this information from Italian relations). I wish I knew Emilie's parents, but I have not found a record yet.
I am intrigued, you sound as though your family is close to this part of the Buccianti family.

Thank you so much for this information Hillhurst. Great to get his name correct. My family had a book written by Alessandro, (in about 1848) in Italian about Napoleon's campaign (now lodged with Middle Eastern Studies Centre in Oxford) that was translated by my gt. grandfather in 1908. He mentions his uncle, but we have no idea how either were relay=ted to my 2xgt grandmother Emilie Buccianti.

I will try and find out how to unearth information from British Chancery Registers in Constantinople.
my thanks again, Maribel

I am trying to find more about Italian George Buccianti, who was acting British Consul in Alexandria from about 1796 to 1806. Where is the best place for me to look?  Would British consular records have any information? Also not known where/when he was born, and if he had wife and family.  thank you, maribel.

Australia / Re: Mary Ann BOON/HALL m.Charles Palmer?

Hi austted, nice to have a few more bits from your story.  However there seem to be some errors in the UK side.
Parents of William Lawson Hall of Bingara were William Moore Hall and Alice Lawson. She was born in Whitby in 1801 and he was born in Portsmouth in 1810, although his father had come from Scarborough. His father had died young and his mother married again in Portsmouth. William Moore died in 1850, which is apparently why his son William Lawson left home to find money to send back to his widowed mother with 5 young children. He never did.

I have a few marriage and death certificates, and as far as I know there is no connection with Alton - but then Hall is a very common name.

More later if you would like, and I will see if I can find any more about Mary Ann Boon's family.

best wishes, Maribel

Hi aussted, I am excited to find some more Austrlian relations - even if rather a long way back. I visited Bingara some years back and saw the Hall staging inn on the Barraba road.  Great to have your info about its name etc. William's father William Hall (who is our 3 x great grandfather) had run a staging business from Portsmouth to London - so he had some experience of this, (although rather different travel conditions!)

I did meet Linda Hall, Harry' younger brother William's daughter, in Bingara, 6 years back and a few months before she died. She had had a tough and very isolated life I think. It is good to have some information about Harry to fill out that part of the family.

many thanks for getting in touch, maribel

My maiden surname was Lawson-Hall

Thanks again to hanes teulu and despair/Roger.  I am delighted that my enquiry has brought a lot more information on elusive branch of Lawson family. As you say Roger a difficult name to trace especially with fairly common first names (well not perhaps Stephenson!).
I am not sure there will be much more to discover - it seems most likely that Stephenson did not have any other children apart from Alice (although he may also have had a daughter named Jane).

I am happy to call this discussion to a close, unless you find something wildly exciting.

Thank you so much

Many thanks to all for your contributions. However I am confused myself with the 3 Charles Lawson. I think this is the most correct conclusion.

1) Charles eldest b.c 1725 d.1807 , m to Alice Stephenson in 1770.

2)Charles  - his son, b.1774 Whitby.  Married Ann Smith, Knaresburgh 18 June 1798. Is a mariner.

3) They have son Charles, baptised 1800. Left £100 in his grandmother Alice Lawson's will.

This leaves me with Alice's granddaughter Jane. Whose daughter is she??  I will scrap the one I found from a marriage of a Charles Lawson to Elizabeth Eckins. Perhaps Charles (2) and Stephenson's other brothers John and Daniel married and had a Jane but I have not found their marriages in Family search.

Thanks again Roger. I think we are getting somewhere. I think have found Jane (gr.dr of Alice Lawson.) (Alice Lawson's other son?) Charles married Elizabeth Eckins in Hull and they had a daughter Jane in 1802.

However I have notes at home I think of a Charles and Ann having a son Charles. in 1800.

I have looked at Alice Lawson's will. Interesting that she leaves everything to her son Stephenson after bequests to her grandchildren. Did she fall out with the rest of her family? or have all her other children died? or perhaps they had had ample provision from her husband's will? or perhaps Stephenson and Jane  had continued to live in Whitby, looking after Alice after she was widowed, and only moved to Portsmouth after her death?

Ah well....

my thanks agin for all your sleuthing which opened up a few new paths for me

Thank you hanes . It is wonderful to be able to add these bits of info to knowledge of Lawson. Good to know how old Charles was when he died too so I can have a better idea of year when looking for  his birth. And the master mariner information. We have a lot of people in ships in our family!
mynthanks again, maribel
