Australia / Re: Obtaining BDM certificates
« on: Thursday 10 March 16 22:53 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Just a thought. Had a look on NZ BDM tried Mary Dawson and Mary Hynes between those yrs no luck unless she married of course. Just wondering if she went back to Australia with Fredrick. She may have been the informant. Also wondering if she returned to NZ(if she did go to Aussie ) because she is on the 1901 death cert but not the 1911.
Trying to do the maths and there seems to be on some a yr out for ages. The writer on the family bible may not have been totally accurate with birth dates as it looks as though it was written in one sitting .
William 1866
Fred 1868
Mat 1870
Annie 1874
John 1872
Thomas 1872
Hugh 1878
Joseph  1882
Mary 1861
 I believe that Mary Mat Annie John Thomas Hugh Joseph and Mary are the recorded children on Annie's Death cert and William Mat John Thomas and Hugh and Annie are on Oliver's death cert. So according to me 3 Children have died by 1911
1901 6 males 35,32,30,25,23,19  2 Females 39,28
1911 5 males 46,41,39,35,33      1 female 37
Where would I look to get the newspaper article.
Thanks Hereford

Thankyou that is very interesting about Fredrick. Another path to go down.

No they weren't married in the church it was just a temporary chapel made from second hand floorboards .The foundation stone was laid a few months after their marriage.  Thanks Hereford.

A correction to the name of the Minister he was Father Patrick Bonaventure Geoghegan.The church they were married in would have been a temporary chapel as the foundation stone was not laid until 4 October 1841 Patrick was a Franciscan priest. -Found this information on  Hereford.

I know that this request is in two different counties but I am hoping that someone in either the States can help or England can help. my gut feeling is that there is very little info out there but you never know. Thanks Hereford.

Durham / Dawsons to America
« on: Monday 07 March 16 02:59 GMT (UK)  »
Hi hope someone can help. have been researching the Dawson's of Durham for a while .I have a record of a 1650 to 1720 John Dawson and wife 1660-1725 Annam Keenliside moving from England to the Isle of Wight Virginia US.I think round about 1700s. They must of left a son John 1683 behind .Just wondering if this is correct information . Not knowing English History at that time I am unsure as to why they would have left and left their son. I am assuming they had other children but can not find any more information . Thank you Hereford.

 the informant on Annie's Certificate looks like a James  Pearson.looks like an H for the middle initial.
His description cant read first bit but second word looks like Reg and he was from Lawrence.

Oliver was born in Durham England . His Father was Oliver Dawson and he was a farmer.He died before 1851. Don't know why the youngest son Joseph is not mentioned here if it was Oliver's Joseph Dawson who died in 1927
