Hi

I was leaning towards these as well Trish.

You can add Isaac D he was born 1858 no place of birth.
Isaac died in Boggabri in 1933. 
I notice there is a Henry dying 1907 in Boggabri.

In the letter he refers to having 3 sons & 3 daughters. The unamed infant, Henry R, Constance & Edward J all die in infancy.  Leaving this Henry & Martha with 3 sons, Isaac, Francis & William and 3 daugthers Mary E, Martha A & Sarah E.

I also lean toward the 1907 death Genni - although the mother's name appears to be incorrect. Probably only a transcript would confirm it Kev.

http://cemindex.arkangles.com/cemeteries.php

Has listings for Boggabri and Narrabri Cemeteris.
There are 'connections' and probable descendants of the family shown including Isaac Daniel and others.
Best of all there are LOVELY PICTURES of heaadstones to read and view and they will explain a lot of links between the Clarks in the area.
Wondeful site!!

Thank you all will have a good look through everything and let you all know what great work youve done ;D ;D


Jenn, Alfred Charles Clarks entry is spot on. But Henry J was Alberts fathers(Francis William) uncle so his parents were a different Francis (Francis Waters Clark) and Mary Pillyer, not Mary Ann. But i do think it is the correct death just there would have been no one that new Henrys mothers name. I would imagine they would never have met her as she was in Bristol and they were in Australia and she may have died around 1851/61(haven't found it yet!) which would probably be before he went to Australia.

Thanks again,

Kev.

It would be interesting to look at the baptism for Isaac - listed as 1858 - presumably he was born onboard or just before they left England - perhaps baptised when he arrived, but the birth date recorded.

The Hornet arrived March 1859 according to the following
http://mariners.records.nsw.gov.au/1859/03/5903.htm
seems to be an error in the transcription heading (1860 listed) and the list is the crew plus a summary of the passengers.
Hornet of London G GREIVES Master  1155 TONS
London to Sydney 3 March 1860 (error I think).
