I can't find marriages/deaths in NSW for Lancelot/Lionel or Charles.

I haven't been able to find any electoral listings either.

So do we have a case of bigamy here?

There are many requests on various forums about Stratford Canning DOHERTY and after reading them I don't think we have found anything not already known however we can't seem to find anything about his sons of his first marriage.

Perhaps our resident library sleuth judb may be able to have a look at the Stat Dec at the NLA ;D

So, were the boys in Sydney?

John, where in Sydney was the cremation?

Who was the informant on her death certificate?

Hi,

Further details to answer. The 1921 electrol roll for Bega area, Lionel was still living with his mother, no sign of his brother Charles.
Both boys were listed as "living" on their mothers death certificate 1937.
She died in Bega then cremated in Sydney (wonder why).

Apparently Stratford Doherty got around a bit. Left England for Australia did some work around the Riverina area, went back to England. Then sailed off to Nova Scotia, Canada failed there, then eventually arrived back in Australia. Joined the Police Force at Bega NSW, didnt last long. After marrying Mary Hayes and giving birth to 2 sons shot through to Victoria without saying goodbye.
No divorce records either.

John

Yes, it seems odd to bring her all the way to Sydney. Maybe it was cheaper than the family all going to Bega.
Maybe Lionel - I much prefer Lancelot - and Charles went overseas. May have had their father's itchy feet.

Stratford was a bit of a cad, wasn't he?  :o

Maybe it put the two lads off marriage.  :-\

John I have tried to find Elizabeth Jane CORNISH's birth in Adelaide SA for you.  However there doesn't seem to be a death on the Vic indexes with the same parents names.  Have you searched for or found her death?


Cheers

John,

I have read the above information provided by Cando and have removed your PM information from the board.

I posted the information as there was nothing personal in it and all had been previously stated in your postings.

I would suggest  that you use this board, rather than sending me PMs, to discuss matters pertaining to your search.
