Australia / Re: Caroline SANDFORD born abt 1832 TAS
« on: Monday 29 November 10 21:20 GMT (UK)  »

Hello Georgie
                             For the births before 1837 the source of information is church records only, no civil records made, for baptism. Records described in the Pioneer Indexes as baptism, are church records which also note the date of birth. Church baptism records would be the only public source of birth details for Caroline in 1832. If she does not appear in the Pioneer Index, it would seem that there is no baptism record for her.  Is it possible that there might have been the
'group" baptism for these children several years later, as often happened - and maybe in South Australia?.

From Colonial Times Sat. 22 March 1845 - departure of B Sandford and F Sandford and four children from Launceston for Adelaide on "Henry"

From this database for arrivals of Sandford -
they arrive on the "Henry" with four children - Charles, J(ohn?), Stephen named.

Tasmania Census Jan 1842 -
The second page has breakdown on age/gender/born in colony/arrived free etc

might be useful for identifying the composition of this family.

The Colonial Tasmanian Family database has Benjamin Sandford b.1841 d. 1843 Launceston. He might be the male child, less than 2 years, on the census.

I think it is framesmith ....hosiery vendor. The job was associated with setting  up machinery in the hosiery trade.

The remarks section includes brief information - location and person - about this mans assignment for labour. Is that what you are wanting to know or is there a specific piece of information from this record that you are wanting ?

...Mr Henry Bilton, Glenorchy  ....23/6/43....12/8/43 Perth....30/12/43 A Maynes Sassafras Morven
2/3/44 Perth...5/3/44 PB (that is prisoners barracks) Launceston....14/4/44.......

This record also in case it is useful, plus next page has information about home - native place Birmingham, plasterer(guessing ?) mother Catherine, brother Alfred, 4 sisters Mary Ann Catherine Anna (guessing again). Housebreaking John Barratt Malsom (?),240,20,C,80

You have probably done all of this anyway, and I do not know how ordinary the family name might be, but in case it is useful -

You have the names of the next generation, presumably from later census records. The year and birthplace of the firstborn might suggest the year and location of parents marriage.

How do the childrens names line up in order of birth? Names of first and second son might be a clue - maybe named for father and paternal grandfather.

What is this mans occupation?. If it is something more specific than labourer eg. watchmaker, saddler, do you see that in his sons, so maybe his own father is also that trade.

Widows often go to live with their daughters, and if they are around in a census year that can give you the daughter's likely maiden name (hoping that  the elderly mother had only one marriage) but you can be lucky. So if this man's wife outlives him and you follow her through later census records, that might be a means of getting her name - through the widowed mother who is living with her.

When you locate people in the census, have a look around on the later and earlier pages ie look around the town or village. Sometimes you can pick up an unexpected family connection.

Good luck

About the son who died on the voyage - do you have a name for him?. It might appear again for a later son born to them.

What names does Clara give her children - anything less usual?
