Abraham Lincoln Kenyon
« on: Monday 02 June 08 09:42 BST (UK) »
Is anyone able to lookup when the above named came to Australia and the ship he sailed on.

He was born in Oldham Lancashire 1865 and married Sarah Linklater in Victoria 1888. Their son Frank Lincoln Kenyon was born in Brunswick in 1889.

Abraham died in 1943 Brunswick. I have his burial details but nothing about his occupation and when he came to Australia.

Many thanks

Hi Dinky

If you look on the PROV site,  there is a couple of MR Kenyon 's arriving,  between 1872 - 1888,  aged from 27  - 45,   NO A Kenyon,  but may have come as Mr.......If you know his age at marriage,  the site may help

I think it is possible that he could have come with his parents on the Electoral Rolls I noticed that in the same area there was a John Kenyon and Esther Kenyon living together at the same address
both Abraham and John were basketweavers

So then I had a good look throught the indexs and found a death of Esther Kenyon

Esther Kenyon died aged 86 in 1917 Hberg
father Jos TRAVIS mother unknown reg no 12681


Now Travis is the surname showing on the death indexs for Abraham Lincoln Kenyon death details.


do you have either his death certificate or perhaps the marriage certificate

Oh and maybe you allready know this but he had a second wife who had achild born and died the same year?

1881 census
Oldham Lancashire
Living at 22 Park Road

John Kenyon Head aged 49 mar skip manfr born Manchester,Lancashire
Esther           wife aged 50 mar                             Heywood
Walter             son  aged 26         skip manfr born Oldham
Jessie               dau aged 20                                   Edinborough Scotland
A.Lincoln        son aged 15                                    Oldham

Folia RG11/4064


so it  would appear  that Abraham arrived  after 1881 and before 1888

Thank you Jenn

I had the 1881 census details and figured that he must have arrived betwen 1881 and 1888. I have not established a match for him as yet on the website Craizi gave me. I have however, found Albraham's parents John & Esther arriivng on the ship GERA Sept 1895. Abraham must have come out on his own.

Have you got the address you mention in the electoral rolls and the date of that entry.

HI Dinkey this is my first  time on this so unsure how it goes , I am also trying to follow the Kenyon tree , Abraham  Lincoln Kenyon is my husbands Great Grandfather    I have not found out exactly when he came out but the dates you have are around the same time as his mother Esther came out  I think she actually came out twice  first in 1883 on the Respigadera and then on the Gera with Husband John Kenyon   in 1895.
Abraham  was a wicker worker   or basket maker  married Sarah Linklater in 1888  she died in 1907 age 45   both died in Victoria Australia and buried in the Kenyon plot in Coburg Cemetery.
 
I am trying to find out the exact parentage of John Kenyon  who married Esther , as on the marriage certificate  it shows Johns father name of William but on  Johns Death certificate it shows John  any help with this .
