Peace, George
« on: Thursday 28 April 11 15:45 BST (UK) »
Hi - I am very new to the whole geneolagy area.  My father died when I was a very young teenager.  He never told me (or my mother) much about his family. His name was Joseph Baden PEACE.  From my research, his GG grandfather was George (Yorky) Peace who was born in Ossett, near Harrowgate, Yorkshire in 829 and then emigrated to Australis in 1853.  They were a successful farming family.  Any information about George from Ossett (Yorkshire) would be really appreciated.  I feel I need to tell my children (and grandchildren) something about their ancestory.   :)

Is this 'your' Peace family on the 1871 Census ... ???

1871 Census
Joseph Peace - Head - Widower - Male - Age 69 - Occupation: Mungo Mnf/frmr Emp 3 grls / 1 mn (sic) - Born: Ossett, Yorkshire
Thos Peace - Son - Unmarried - Male - Age 38 - Occupation: Rag Merchant employs 5 females - Born: Ossett, Yorkshire
Sarah Peace - Daughter - Unmarried - Female - Age 34 - No occupation listed - Born: Ossett, Yorkshire
Joseph Peace - Son - Unmarried - Male - Age 26 - Occupation: Clerk in Court of Probate - Born: Ossett, Yorkshire
Piece: RG10 / 4606 - Place: Soothill, West Riding of Yorkshire - Enumeration District: 5
Civil Parish: Soothill - Ecclesiastical Parish: St Peters
Folio: 28 - Page: 4 - Schedule: 20
Address: 19 Street Side

Looking further along the street are several other Peace families - are they connected?  There are loads of people with the surname Peace from Ossett, Yorkshire.  Looks as though they could all be related to one another.

Living at 36 Street Side:
Uriah Peace, Aged 23, Miner; his wife Harriet, Aged 20 and daughter Anne Eliza aged 1.

Living at No 39 Street Side:
John Peace, aged 34, his wife Elizabeth aged 30 and daughter Hannah aged 9.

Living at No 43 Street Side:
William Peace aged 72 and his wife Mary Baily Peace aged 71.
[I find the name Baily interesting as there is a Thomas Bailey Peace in your original family ...]

Living at No 17 Street Side:
Grace Peace aged 31 and Peter Peace aged 5 listed as Boarders.

Hope this information is helpful.

Thanks to all of you for your great assistance.  This is definitely my family and it appears, a very common name in Ossett Yorkshire.  I will have to visit one day.  I am the ancestor of George Peace who emigrated to Australia and after some gold prospecting in the 1850's, married a girl from Ireland and commenced a dairy farm in rural Victoria.  I now have a bit more of the picture.  Thanks again  :D
