Thanks for the correction Merlin  ;) { It is stated on The Tasmanian Archives married in Launceston 1843 :-[ }


Sorry Alison, the TAHO do advise the following on their database:

an @ symbol next to a record indicates that the date given for a marriage is derived from the date of the first identified birth of a child to the two people and therefore may not be accurate.

Thanx Merlin and Alison. Much appreciated. One last request. There is an on line tree that gives a birth of Bartholomew on the 26th April 1848 in Victoria to parents Manwaring and Emma. Supposedly Bartholomew marries an Elizabeth Mano and then a Lizzie Price. Are you able to search for a birth on the date alone to see if there is anything recorded for Chitty or a similar such name?

Thanx again.

Hi Jon,
There is no
Birth of Bartholomew.
Marriage to Elizabeth MANO or Lizzie PRICe.
Or any children born to the people above on the index up to 1888.

There is a death notice for a Mr B CHITTY late of Launceston

Manwaring and Bartholomew CHITTY Auctioneers

Going for a Sunday drive back later  ;)

The 'online trees' you speak of are unsourced & not verified with any type of documentation ::)

According to these 'trees' Elizabeth MANO & Lizzie PRICE were both born in New Caledonia, married to & divorced from him in Noumea, New Caledonia not Australia.

I have checked outgoing passengers lists & there is no mention of him on them although & as you know these are by no way comprehensive.

The only baptism on the VIC index that could possibly be him is the one that Alison previously noted:

CHITTY (blank) baptism 1850 MELB #16777
Father: (blank)
Mother: (blank)
Denomination: Church of England
Parish: ST JAMES, MELBOURNE
Fiche: 294

I say this as another son Manwaring was baptised in the same year at the same church & their son Richard who died in 1848 death was registered there. As you know children are often baptised well after their births & also the fact that father Manwaring had a brother named Bartholomew.

Probably the only way you could possibly prove if Bartholomew exsisted would be to purchase his mothers 1851 &/or fathers 1856 death certificates. To be  honest I'd purchase Emma's death certificate if you ever think of doing so as she died shortly after the children's birth/deaths in VIC & Manwaring would more than likely have been the informant & still had the children with him.

Alison; thanx for the double check.
Merlin thanx also for following thru. I am aware of the often plagiarized, unverified and more often than not incorrect information that is included in the online trees. That's why I sort sort clarification  ;D
I don't like to include any information that I can't verify one way or the other.

Thanx again for all the help guys.
