Australia Lookups completed / Re: Eva MAy Judd

Hi Cass
Thanks. I will explore a little further. Although why William is buried at Rookwood is a bit out of left field because he died in Bowral. Unless they moved him when Eva died. As the rest of the immediate family had moved to Sydney by then this would make perfect sense. 
Tobias and I were  able to connect and I have sent him my information. I think sharing when possible is such an important part of what we do. Its also very exciting.
Thanks again
Wren

Hi Thanks Maddie.
I hope its soon as I would really like to share the certs and info that I have. Some years ago I tried to contact someone who had posted about Eva on Ancestry but had the information that must have been on Eva's marriage or death certs. Sadly, I did not receive a reply. Elizabeth's sister Jane also had a son before she married and that family was also disbelieving. The incorrect spelling of the marriage surname also didn't help. It was a shame really because it is what it is. We can't sit in judgement of our ancestors as we didn't have to face their challenges and we don't know how we would have reacted given the same circumstances.

Hi Tobias
Now you have posted again you should be able to send a PM, I think. I have also tried to find Robert Murphy, no luck as yet. But I haven't given up trying. I'll have another look now that you have reinsured me. I just need to find another angle. I looked up electoral registers to no avail. eva was baptised at St Stephen's Mittagong at the age of 9. I can't seem to find it online. I will go back to the historical society and look at these registers again. She was baptised at the same time as her sister Jane, had her illegitimate son baptised. Catherine and William Dowling also raised this son. wow, it must have been a full house.
I hope we are able to connect.

Hi Tobias
Here's some info to be going on with. Eva's father was Robert Murphy. Lived Bungendore Labourer aged 55. eva was 19 at the time of Eva's birth. This information is not on any certificate. It was written in light pencil in the original Clerk of Petty sessions record. I saw this some years ago now.

Hi Tobias
Have sent you a personal message. I am only too happy to share, but I have a fair bit of info which would be easier to send in a word doc. I'm really excited about this. So many people have helped me so often. I like to be able to pay it on when I can.
Regards

Midlothian / Re: George Brown and Jemima Crookston
« on: Tuesday 11 February 20 20:32 GMT (UK)  »
I now know that George's parents were George Brown and Euphemia Jemima Jardin/Jardine. This explains two of the children's names. I also know that he had at least two brothers William and John.
This information needs much more research and verification.

Hi Kiara
I would be only too pleased to share with you. Please send me a personal Message with your email.
Since I posted the Brown family messages I have discovered lots of newspaper articles that give more insights into our family.

Offaly (Kings) / Re: stephen mcguinness clara kings county
« on: Saturday 03 November 18 10:26 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Reginager
I have no more information on Stephen although I do think there is a Horseleap connection. Not even a definite death date. His wife, Margaret Sullivan, appears to have a baptismal record Clara-Horseleap. I tend to think the McGuinnesses were probably farmers based in Horseleap. I would love to know what happened to the boys Edward and Joseph who did not come to Australia as well as Stephen. There was another daughter Mary who went to Scotland married at Renfrew to  Patrick Docherty from Horseleap. They came to Australia in 1855 and had no children. Mary passed away from melancholy in 1857. These two mentions of Horseleap tend to make me think the McGuinnesses were living in that community although at present I haven't any concrete evidence.
I'm still searching.
Some years ago when I visited Ireland I went to Clara and took some photographs of McGuinness headstones I found in the cemetery. Not sure if they're relations but took them anyway in case I needed them in the future. I knew there was a slim possibility of my returning so I took the opportunity. I'm still searching all records for connections.
I would be very excited if there was more McGuinness connections.
Regards

Occupation Interests / Stained Glass Co Sydney
« on: Tuesday 09 October 18 09:00 BST (UK)  »
Hi All
I'm looking for any information on Couldery and Co., Glass works Sydney. The company originally began in 1884 as Couldery and Harwood. Joseph Couldery known as Walter had trained under Fred Ashwin and John Falconer considered to be Sydney's ultimate stained glass company ( I had one some research on this company a number of years ago when I was researching another church. In February 1884 Couldery began his own business with a Mr Harwood in George Street, Sydney, at the Haymarket . They later moved to 354 Pitt Street, Sydney. Mr Harwood's name disappears in 1893 and the name Couldery and Co., begins to appear. They later moved to 389 Pitt Street and finally to 71 Liverpool Street Sydney. Couldery and CO., were registered as a Company in 1903.
They were in the Sand's directory until 1929. Joseph died at his residence Kuringai Chase Ave, Turramurra in 1935.  I have numerous articles obtained from TROVE regarding Joseph's personal and business information.
Joseph and his wife Sarah had only two daughters both who remained spinsters. The company won first prize for their work at the Industrial Exhibition in 1885 and undertook a number of commissions throughout NSW, Cobar, Armidale and Tamworth to name a few. I'd be interested in discovering where I could go to discover what happened to any drawings/ illustrations that may have survived, or any more information on the sale/ winding up of the Company. What Mr Harwood's Christian name may have been.
Vera Walter's eldest daughter passed away 1961 and his younger daughter died in 1978 residing at Gordon near Sydney.
Many thanks
Wren
