Australia / Re: Where do I start?
« on: Thursday 25 October 07 10:39 BST (UK)  »

Sorry for the confusion....I had just finished work and really needed to go to bed....

The surname of the brothers is MITCHELL

Parents to both lads were John Mitchell 1821 and Frances Floyd 1828 all born Gwinear Cornwall..

I don't really have much info on them...

Others who have these people in their tree say they went to Australia on the Cospatrick in 1870..
Some have mentioned that Edward Murley, Constance Mitchell's husband came back to England others say he died before she went....

But when I ask questions not all get back...not too sure as to why

I'm having a quiet spell on the others in my tree, so thought I'd go further back..

Thanks for your help

Their parents never left England...
The father John Mitchell died 1879 in Lancashire & their mother Frances died in 1901 Lancashire...both in Radcliffe, but registered in Bury...

There may also be Arthur Mitchell abt 1862/3 who also went off the census...again can't find anything on him

Thanks for your time


Australia / Where do I start?
« on: Wednesday 24 October 07 22:20 BST (UK)  »

I'm looking for 2 brothers of my grt gran..
David Mitchell b: abt 1850
Samuel Thomas b: abt 1857

Older members of the family say they moved abroad Australia or America...

Their fathers sister moved to Australia in 1870 with her family, so maybe they went there...
I know my nan used to write to someone in Australia, she carried this on after her mother had died, so perhaps it was one of  her uncles she wrote to?

I have no idea as to where they may have gone, if they went at all.....

There was no sign of David on the 1871 census and Samuel Thomas on the 1881 census...

Did Samuel follow David?

Did David go with his Aunt in 1870?

His Aunt was Constance Murley (this was her married name) she went on the Cospatrick in 1870 along with her daughter.....

Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?

Thanks for looking

Lancashire / Where do I find?
« on: Wednesday 10 October 07 11:25 BST (UK)  »

I have 2 deaths of a Nicholas Thomas Harry .... both registered in Bury, Lancashire
One in 1894 and the other in 1895....The 1894 was the first husband of my grt gran and the second possibly the son they had that died .....

Where do I look to see if they were buried....Although both registered in Bury....I think they probably died in Radcliffe as this is where they lived most of their lives...

Bridget died in 1933 and is buried in Radcliffe Cemetery along with her second husband and his brother....but these are the only 3 in the grave....

Where do I find out whose buried in Cemeteries....without going and looking.
