Essex Lookup Requests / Re: George Copsey 1801-1854 - Tilbury
« on: Monday 29 November 21 22:59 GMT (UK)  »
Someone more knowledgeable about such things may be able to help, but a google search tells me that "Silver Hill" barracks was in Sussex.The 5th Regiment of Foot (Northumberland Fusiliers) were at Silver Hill Barracks  and transferred to Gibraltar in 1801.

(either Control F to find "Silver Hill" or scroll down the dates on the RHS of the page.)

Perhaps his father was in the 5th Regiment?

I'm not sure if you already have this information:

Mabel LEE CONWAY died 23 April 1951 at South Yarra. Death notice here:
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article206391072

Wife of Richard (deceased), mother of Doug, Ern, Ivy (Mrs HAYES) and Keith.

Death registration 18320 / 1951 Castemaine. Unfortunately it looks like the death certificate may include many unknowns as there is no parents' names on the index.

There may be another son of Jesse and Mabel LEE-CONWAY. There is a WW2 enlistment for Keith Woodrow LEE-CONWAY - born 29 Nov 1919 Newtown, next of kin - Mabel LEE-CONWAY. I can't see a NSW birth registration for him though.  :-\

There are many items in newspapers about this man on trove

 - in trouble with the law in various States, prison escapes and recaptures etc, including this one with a photograph:

Yes, sorry mckha I just added that as a modification to my post too.

There is another son born Melbourne, Victoria in 1913 - Ernest Francis LEE CONWAY, parents Jesse Richard and Mabel Agnes (nee ROBERTSON) (29449 / 1913)

Actually there is a photograph of Jesse - on his US passport application (12 Jan 1921).

Not sure what information you already have about him? Born Salem, Massachusetts 12 June 1880, father also named Jesse Richard LEE-CONWAY born Salem (according to this application).

Modified to add:
though on his marriage he says his father is Richard Francis LEE CONWAY  :-\

There isn't a photograph, but there is a description of Jesse in 1921:

"... 41 years of age, 5 feet 9 inches high, medium build, brown hair, blue eyes, tattooed on both arms and chest: a seaman ..."

As is so often the case when I look at a map, what I'm looking for is on the join of 2 maps.  ::) Bedford House shown here in 1882 just off the map, I can't seem to find the adjoining map from this time.
