DOHERTY brothers - NSW/VIC
« on: Friday 10 July 09 14:11 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

I am tracing Lionel Wyndham Pearson Doherty, born 1885c Bega,NSW and his brother  Charles William, born 1887c  to Stratford and Mary Doherty.
Some time after their births, Stratford shot through to Victoria and married Elizabeth Cornish in the Brighton VIC area I think.
I am unable to find anything on Lionel and Charles in NSW. Maybe they followed their father to Victoria after their mother (Mary) died in 1937.

Regards,
John.

It does seem that your Lionel's name was in fact Lancelot.

It appears then that Mary, the boys' mother was not Stratford's wife.

I see no marriage before the births in NSW and the little biography does not mention it either.
