Looking for JACOBSON and WARKE family's
« on: Monday 17 September 07 16:11 BST (UK) »
Hi
  I am looking for infomation about Johan Jacobson, he married Mary Ann Warke in Victoria, 1874.
 I know they had a daughter Annie Maud in 1879, I know who she married.

What I dont know is did she have any brothers and sisters?
I have no information on the Jacobson or Warke family's
If any one can help me I would really appreciate it, I know it is not a lot to work with, and I really do not know were to start.
                            regards Sue

Hi

Margaretha Ellen JACOBSON  1800    Dunolly [Same place of birth as  Annie Maud] Father Johan and mother Mary Ann WARK  Ref 15149.

Letitia May JACOBSON 1882  Dunolly Father Johan and mother Mary Ann WARKE  Ref 2043

Alexander Victor JACOBSON  1885  Footscray Father John and mother Mary WARKE  Ref 17773  [It looks as though this birth was registered twice - the 2nd reg with name of Alexander only and Ref 17802 - same parents]

Sylvester George JACOBSON 1890 Footscray  Father Jno and mother Mary Ann WARKE  Ref 3618

Hi

Now some marriages - I note that both girls have Goldsborough as place of birth - I haven't checked but Dunolly may have been the closest registration district.

JACOBSON  Letitia Marion [May on birth reg] Place of birth Goldsborough
=
VAUGHAN Geo Washington  Place of birth  Williamstown 
1911   Ref  4392


JACOBSON  Margaretha Helene [Ellen on birth reg] Place of Birth Goldsborough
=
VAUGHAN  Chas Seymour   Place of birth Williamstown
1902  Ref 7452

Births to Margaruetha Helene [note spelling] JACOBSON and Charles Seymour VAUGHAN all at Footscray

Wilfred Arthur Richard   1903  Ref 25639
Charles Seymour 1904 Ref 25371
Mariese Helene  1911  Ref 28603
George Sylvester Washington  Ref 22078
Mary Victories  1918   Ref 27610

I am unable to see any births for George and Letitia.

Cheers

Hi

According to Johan and Mary Ann's marriage reg in 1874, his place of birth was LONDON and Mary Ann's was Browns Diggings - I would imagine that this was on the goldfields in Victoria.  The marriage is Ref No 4362.

I can't see Mary Ann's birth in Victoria.

She was born her as here is the arrival of her parents from http://proarchives.imagineering.com.au/index_search.asp?searchid=23

WARKE Mrs Age 20     MAY  1854   GUIDING STAR     Port B Fiche 068 Page 003
WARKE   Alexander Age 19  MAY   1854   GUIDING STAR   Port B   Fiche 068 Page003

There are 5 children born to Alexander WARKE and Jane McKAY between 1855 and 1866.  It look as though Mary Ann's birth was not registered.  Let me know if you need these details.

Mary Ann's death

JACOBSON  Mary Ann  Father Alexander WARKE Mother  Jane MACKIE   
Death Place  Footscray    Age 70    Yr 1927  Ref 10023

I also noticed a death in Footscray for a Johann - I am only presuming it is him

JACOBSON  Johann Nicholas  Father  Peter Nicholas JACOBSON  Mother Christina JENSEN  Death Place Footscray  Age  79  Yr 1929  Ref 9475

and the deaths of their chn

JACOBSON  Sylvester George  Age 70  Yr 1960  Place of death Footscray  Ref 30180
JACOBSON  Alexander Victor  Age 76  Yr 1963  Place of death Sealake  Ref  247
VAUGHAN  Letitia Marion  Age 89  Yr 1971  Place of Death  Heidelberg   Ref  5330
VAUGHAN  Helene Marguerit  Age 98 Yr 1978  Place of death  Heidelberg  Ref  17213

Hi

Births to Alexander WARKE and Jane MACKAY

Jane           Creswick        1855  Reg No 10771
Julie            McCallums      1858  Reg No14501
Henry           Not recorded  1862  Reg No 20390X1907
Hester          Majorca          1866  Reg No 1758
Alexander     Majorca          1866  Reg No 15718

I don't understand the X 1907   Someone more knowledgeable about the indexes may have a suggestion.  Perhaps I have misunderstood the Cross reference.

Do you want me to look for further information on these people - marriages etc.

Cheers for now
