Hi Suzard, I'm not sure if Charles father's second name was Vango or not. Also just who his father was. I think it was Thomas b abt 1762- 18-9-1813 married to Mary Stockwell 1761-1831.  Other tree's have his father as Charles Ellis b abt 1754, married to Ann. Both tree's have good points in their favour.  I'm staying with Thomas until I see a better argument!

Smudwhisk you may be right about Thomas being William's middle name. I have a copy of the family tree from a relative that says William Briggs 1808-1858 married Ann Smith. His father is Charles and on this tree it states Betsy Upton as the wife.
There is a baptism for a William Thomas Briggs for June 1806, parents Charles and Elizabeth.
 I don't have a problem with who William is but can't decide who his parents were.
Thanks for help so far,

Hi Rhonda, I'm also looking for information on Charles Henry Briggs as he's also an ancestor of mine. I can't discover just who his parents were, particularly his mother. There are several possibilities in the online tree's. Hopefully something will turn up!
Cheers,  Sandiehawk.

Good-morning, thanks for help so far. More info on William Thomas Briggs. I don't have cert's for all the following... born 29/1/1806 in Shoreditch.  Baptised 1/1/1815. Transported 6/4/1826 for 7 years.  Married 21/8/1848 in N.S.W.  Died 25/12/1858 in N.S.W.

I shouldn't be doing this so late at night!!  William was married 21/8/1848. Son Charles was born 1858. Sadly, William died only six months later.

Can anyone help me with William Briggs b 1808 in London, transported for 7 years to Australia. Married Ann Smith 21-8-1884 in Goulburn N.S.W. Not sure just who his his parents were. I'm sure Charles was his father but not sure if his mother is Elizabeth Bale or Betsy Upton. One of William's children was Charles Henry, 16/6/1858-13/6/1929. Any information would really help.
