Browsing the Qld Indexs

I find a birth and death for a LILY HOOD father George Hood mother Ann Christina Newlands after that  the surname becomes HOY with George the father and mother Ann/e Christina Newlands

I will not at this point put all the kids names up as McGreevey may very well have them.



I wonder if the Hood was used to "anglicize" the name ???

There was at one point in time a large population of chinese in the Towers during the gold rush although this was around the 1880's and George may have felt more comfortable using his chinese name. just a theory.


death in Q;d
1892/C2145
Name Annie Christina Hoy
father  William Newlands - ** born Sydney aged 45 years

I think that the George Ah Hoy at Rockhampton in 1874 is a different George Ah Hoy than our Charters Towers Ah Hoy because there is still an Ah Hoy, Hawker in Rockhampton in the 1900 PO Directory.

There are a number of miners rights issued to the Surname Ah Hoy between 1870 and 1880 but there is one to a Geo Ah Hoy on 20th Nov 1875 for Peak Downs.  This ties up with George being a miner later on at Charters Towers.

Nice find on the Ah Hoy being a Baker at Croydon JM, it ties up further with mining.

Regards
Gerry

Hi
Of course ordering a transcription of the marriage found in NSW
would go a long way towards answering the original query ;D


It would show the parents of both parties and ,as you know who ANN's parents were, you would have your answer as to whether he "anglisized" his name at the wedding, but later reverted to the original.

As there is no death for ANN HOOD with right parents, but clearly a correct death for ANN HOY, it appears a temporary change was  the case.



There is also this marriage in NSW

Thanks Gerry

Yes that is my George Hoy in Pedley street in Charters Towers. His daughter Anne Christina's first child was named Lillian.

George Hoy had his own bakery in his back yard to provide for the family.

McGreevey,

Pleased to help, I have 3 Great Grand Fathers and 2 Great Grand Mothers buried at Charters Towers plus other past family tree members all were part of the gold era from the 1880s.

From what JM found George also had his bakery at Croydon at some stage.

Hi Gerry

Most of my relatives are buried in the Charters Towers Cemetery. Still trying to get a hold on one elusive great grandfather.

Most of them were involved in gold mining, with one finding "The Prince of Wales "gold nugget.

I have read the thread and may I be so bold as to be a party pooper on this one.
'majm' put forward the possibility the Charters Towers, George Hoy d1922 was from the one from the 1855 'Constitution' from Cambridge England, and I think he maybe.  He was my GG Uncle.  He has been missing from the records from 1867 (George Hood M date), where he was a baker from Mailtand, NSW (near me), with brothers Alfred and Thomas Hoy (matches his children's names).  I stumbled across him in QLD records and tracked him back to the AKA George Hood marriage in Sydney.  Then I got his D cert from QLD, which states he's from Maitland, NSW.  His brother William was running bad debts and using George's name, so I suspect he used a pseudonym to escape court action.  Another of his brother's changed his name too and hid in Sydney, dodging all record keeping - its a family thing:)  Although not conclusive, the born in Maitland on his D cert is compelling.  I think I'll get the M cert and some children's B certs for more info.  getting expensive if I'm wrong.
Please prove me wrong or otherwise.  Comments?

Hi

The Thomas Hoy that married Isabella Coxon must be a relative. 

My G G Grandfather is John Linsley brother of Isabella's mother Margaret.
