Linden
« on: Thursday 15 December 05 11:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Looking for a Clarence William Linden. Born in England circa 1853. Came to Austalia and married Martha Rebecca Churchill in 1872 at Mudgee Nsw. Moved to Hill End. Had 5 children, Clarence William Henry, Martha Rebecca, Florence F, Samuel Frederick and Arthur E.
Have other details on wife and children but Clarence seems to have disappeared. Contact in Canada also searching for him.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Ruth from Yenda NSW

Do you know the name of Clarence's parents?  There are a couple of possibles on the NSW index (He would have lived to quite an age). If you don't know his parents names, they MAY be listed on the marriage certificate. You can buy transcripts from NSW records which are cheaper than certificates.

Hi Trish
A family contact in Canada also searching sent me a copy of his marriage certificate. We don't know his parents names.
On the marriage certificate his fathers and his mothers name is not stated. Neither is his place of birth, date of birth or age. We can find no death record for him in Nsw either. Contact in Canada remembers one of her passed relatives saying he walked out on his family and they never saw or heard from him again. Whether this is true or not we don't know. Things have a way of being distorted over time.
Thanks for replying.
Cheers
Ruth  :)
