I am having trouble using the information you are giving.

Your reply #16

"Weirdly in 1903 when George W dies in Sydney he has an inquest into his death and is given a pauper's burial. You would question why Florence wasn't named in a will or used as an informant on his death certificate."

I read this to mean that you have this death certificate and can see the name of the informant. The informant is not Florence.

At this stage I would not suggest that you need to get this death certificate. But it could have enough information to identify him...marriage details, name of children, years in the colony, place of birth.

You have a Will, and Florence's name does not appear in such document.

When John Thomas BEAUCHAMP died at home of his uncle, Charles BEAUCHAMP, 19 April 1887, Melbourne, the are two death notices on the 27th April. Notices are in The Herald and The Argus.

Also in this publication, 17 May 1887 p79  -

Are you saying that you have this death certificate, and the Will of this George W AUSTIN?

NSW BDM death

Can you please list all the information on this death record.

What information do you see on the Will.......date it is written, executors, witnesses, beneficiaries, estate....everything please.

Your reply #5....

Who is John #1?  Who is John #2?   Whoever's Will you have, can you give the relevant details.....eg. date it is written, executors, witnesses, beneficiaries, estate....everything please.

Where and how do you locate Florence Emily AUSTIN between leaving Hill End  1875, and her marrying in Melbourne 1898?

The death certificate for Florence Emily STEPHENSON would record her years in Victoria...and other states.

Where and how do you locate Charles BEAUCHAMP between mid 1870s in Queensland,  and 1887, newspaper notice for death of his nephew John BEAUCHAMP in Melbourne?

The death  certificate for Charles BEAUCHAMP, died 1918, would record years in Victoria. I suspect that the death certificate for his wife Marian, died 1914, might be better for this purpose because her husband is alive to be a likely informant.

Charles BEAUCHAMP died Melbourne 1918, and his death on VIC Index does not record his parents names.  His headstone records his birth date and place, and date of arrival in Melbourne and name of ship.

When he dies there is no one around to give good information for his death certificate?......but he gets such an informative headstone? 

I suppose source of that information might be Florence Emily STEPHENSON nee AUSTIN, which would suggest that she has knowledge of her BEAUCHAMP ancestry.

Would that seem to be at odds with the death index entry for Florence Emily STEPHENSON, where her family would be the informants and they cannot name her parents?

BEAUCHAMP.-John BEAUCHAMP, oven builder, Sydney, eldest son of the late John BEAUCHAMP, Esq., of Sion Park, Isleworth, Middlesex, England, who was killed suddenly by being accidentally run over on Friday, April 10, 1885, aged 64 years. Widower.

Florence Emily AUSTIN has uncle Charles BEAUCHAMP. Florence also has uncle John BEAUCHAMP in Sydney at the time of her mother Clara's  death.

The vaccination scar is worth noting because not all men and women enlisting had been vaccinated.

It is a describer. Similarly, if George was six foot tall.....was a surgical instrument maker....was Jehovahs Witness....had a distinctive tattoo.....etc. Anything that might be useful now, or later when you are considering other finds to be possibly related to him. The insignificant things can be useful.

Are you descended from this George?

I think that  George Charles Lawrence WATSON and Mary Monica ORCHARD have a son?

From the birth certificate...... how is father's birthplace recorded?....just New Zealand or is a town/city named.....and who is the informant?

At enlistment file for your George Charles Lawrence WATSON does not record that he has vaccination scars.   Just something to note in considering his birthplace.
