Australia / Joseph Robb Pratt
« on: Wednesday 22 August 18 04:35 BST (UK)  »
Iím looking for information on Joseph Robb Pratt.

This is his death: 18303/1957 PRATT Joseph Robb parents ROBERT and ELIZABETH BALMAIN

Iím hoping for anything in NSW - I have his Qld birth - that will indicate who he married and whether there were children. Electoral rolls maybe?

There is nothing on Ryerson for him, nor on Trove with Robb as middle name. There are some Joseph R.

He may have married Charlotte Houghton in WAGGA 1896 and had children, Florence, Isabella and Elsie. This is found on a GENI tree. However, I see that a Charlotte Pratt in Wagga has quite a few children after the 1897 birth of Florence and no father name is listed on NSWBDM.

The GENI tree has Charlotteís death as 1949, but doesnít say where. I canít see it on NSWBDM.

There are two other Joseph R marriages to consider:

1417/1905 PRATT Joseph R to CARDWELL Euphemia J HAMILTON

1038/1920 PRATT Joseph R REEVES Elsie PETERSHAM

I do know it may be a case of having to purchase his death certificate.  ;)


Scotland / William Paterson Death mother nee Imrie
« on: Sunday 19 August 18 03:56 BST (UK)  »
I'm stuck with a death for William Paterson. Parents David and Elizabeth nee Imrie.

He married, at age 30, Jemima Pratt and a child for them was born in 1901, in Cupar.

In 1904 Jemima has a child to George French, in Edinburgh. The cert states that she is the wife of William a mill worker and that she hasn't seen him for the past 10 months.

Jemima marries George French in England, in 1917.

I have looked at Scotlands People and I can't narrow down to a suitable William death.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


New Zealand Completed Requests / Henry John Shillinglaw death
« on: Wednesday 25 April 18 04:36 BST (UK)  »

I'm seeking a Henry John Shillinglaw who was born in VIC in 1866.

I cannot find his death in VIC and an online source suggested he may have died in NZ, but gave no details.

'SHILLINGLAW, Henry John - b.1866 Richmond, Melb. - (m.Vic.1885 Elizabeth Smith WILSON) - d. Australia or NZ'

He is not buried with his wife, who died in 1940, in VIC.

I did do a search on NZBDM using surname Shillinglaw and nothing came up.

Australia / Looking for death of John Stanley Jenkins
« on: Saturday 14 October 17 06:27 BST (UK)  »
John, born 1898, is alive in 1941 and deceased by 1956, as per parents death certificates.

His name is included on his parents' grave at Warrnambool Cemetery, but no dates are there.

Parents were Jenkin Jenkins and Ann/ie Howie (Howel in one case) mn Paton. In one case she is Ann Muriel (Paton). Her birth name correctly written is Ann Howie Paton.

I have his military record.

A marriage for him would be an added bonus.


John's parents were William Paton and Ann Howie.

He arrived in Vic with his brother Alexander in 1857 on the CHANCE. His brother William (my branch) was already in VIC.

I have everything needed on William who is buried Warrnambool. Have found the death and burial of Alexander in GEELONG. Mother for Alex was noted as HOWE on VICBDM.

Help with finding death and burial for John would be very much appreciated. It's possible he will be found in Woodford, Koroit, Tower Hill or Warrnambool areas.


Australia / 'SPOL' on VICBDM death register, as place of death

Could someone tell me where in Victoria 'SPOL' is please?


Australia / COMPLETED: Tasmanian birth 1900ish

I'm after a birth for Olive Lawdon/Lawdorn

This is the marriage in VIC, which is quite wrong name wise:

1901 4580 LAWDON Frank to Godding Dalerie

Should be Frank Lawardorn to Valerie Gooding

However, seems the names they decided to use were LAWDON/LAWDORN, as mother, son and Olive have used the variations.

An online source suggests that Olive was born in Queenstown, Tasmania. What is odd though is that it also says 'where they were first married' referring to her parents.

Frank died in Frankston, Vic in 1904.

So, did they go to Tassies after marriage in 1901, or were they there prior to 1901.

It would be great if someone can find a birth for Olive. The surname may have been spelt many ways.

Olive has middle name Valerie at time of marriage, in Victoria. Her mother also known as Louisa Vallerie.

1931 5500 LAWDORN Olive Valerie to BARNES Richd Thos



Death - 1982 13765 BARNES Olive Vallerie parents LAWDORN Frank Vallerie (Gooding) aged 79, Elsternwick
