Horace Warner HASTINGS
« on: Wednesday 18 November 09 10:13 GMT (UK) »
Seeking information on Horace Warner Hastings, who l believe was born in Brighton in 1867. Horace moved to Australia some time between 1867 and the turn of the century and died in Melbourne, Victoria on the 6th July 1934 aged 67 years.

Horace is my great grandfather on my fathers side. He married Pheobe Smith (unconfirmed) and together, they had eleven childen. Six boys and five girls. I'm particularly keen to find out the names of Horace's parents.


Cheers

Hi Tensixty6

According to Registration Details, a Horace was born in 1868 as follows

Hi Suz

Maybe it is, I was only looking for a birth at that time

Since then I have checked for a marriage and then spotted that death - so got no further as yet.

I looked for a Warner/Hastings marriage - thinking may be a possibility for parents - only found one
Harriett Minter Warner
Thomas William Hastings
Sept qtr 1869
Norwich 4b 157

so thought possibly Horace was illegit - but can't find a horace warner to "fit" either

a mystery

Hi Suzi

I agree, it is a big mystery - no sign of him at all

Checked for a possible marriage between 1885 onwards to a possible Phoebe, but not a sniff anywhere

Got to get my thinking cap on on this one

The marriage to Phoebe SMITH was supposed to have taken place in Sydney, Australia. My father took steps some years ago to obtain a marriage certificate but had no luck at all in securing one. I suppose it's always possible that they never married.

This is the only Hastings family I can see in 1871 - but no young Horace there. They could be the parents of the Horace who died.
I wonder if your Horace is actually younger?

RG10 1082 71 27
Alfred 26 Skin dealer and Hog butcher bn Hailsham
Martha 22 bn Funtingdon
William 3 bn Hails.
Rose 1 bn H
Amy E 2 mths bn H
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
