William PARROTT
« on: Saturday 05 November 11 04:42 GMT (UK) »
Hi
     William Parrott married Harriett Rosetta Rundle 1883 Newcastle NSW.
    Other researchers have him dying 1937 Ryde, NSW. I have a family Memorium Notice which states he died 1924 Innisfail Qld. BDM Qld index  confirms death for him in 1924.
 I have his children in NSW.  I am trying to find any  information about his life in Queensland.
  Harriett Rosetta is on the NSW BDM death index (1923) name Parrott, she is buried in Newcastle  name Wold. I have the information on her family.
    Thank you Muss

Well, I suppose it is not important as you have sufficient information on HARRIET ROSETTA, but what do you mean by...

"--Harriett Rosetta is on the NSW BDM death index (1923) name Parrott..."

"...she is buried in Newcastle  name Wold..."

Did she divorce WILLIAM, marry WOLD, then die?

Do you have his parents' names? (from the marriage cert??)

There are two Qld deaths that I can see -
1924 with no parents listed
1932 - parents William and Eliza

NSW 1937, parents John, Margaret (which is obviously the one that other researchers have)

Judith

DYER - Wilts, London, Somerset, MIDLANE - Hants, Wilts, SONE - Hants, WRIGHT - London, Hants, SEAGER - Deptford, DWYER, FERGUSON - Victoria, MASON - Woodford Vic, BALLARD - South Wales, GOULDBY - Lowestoft

May I ask some questions please...  

(I too am confused by your post re the info about your Harriett)

From the 1883 mc,
what names for his parents,
what was his occupation,
what was his fathers occupation,
where and when born

Does that confirm your known info about him?

From the 1924 dc
What was his occupation,
What was his then age,
What was his usual place of residence
how long was he in Qld, how long in NSW,
how was Harriett noted on that d.c

Cheers,  JM

Trying to avoid sidetracking, but may I note that it is possible there were two lasses named Harriett R Rundle in the Newcastle area of NSW in the 1880s...

NSW BDM online index has
Harriett R Rundle marrying George R Lloyd in 1881 registered Newcastle # 5245
AND
Harriett R Rundle marrying William Parrott in 1883 registered Newcastle # 6310

Cheers,

JM

Hi
    I do not have his marriage or death certificates .  The Qld bdm index does not show his  parents names.
    I cannot find any information on him. I may have to get the marriage certificate.
  I am trying to piece together a family tree that was started by my cousin who is now deceased.
     Harriet Rosetta Parrott is buried with Laurist Wold,  grave is owned by her son Charlton (William is his father).  I cannot find her marriage to Wold.

NSW Electoral Roll 1913,  NEWCASTLE,

Church St polling place
Louis WOLD, wharf labourer, off Newcomen St
Rose WOLD, domestic duties, off Newcomen St


Stockton polling place
Albert William PARROTT, wharf labourer, Newcastle St
Margaret Levina PARROTT, domestic duties, Newcastle St

I notice at the National Archives of Australia that there are several chaps with surname WOLD, born Norway, who obtained Naturalisation pre WWI.

NSW ER 1903 NEWCASTLE

Newcastle City Polling place

Rose WOLD, domestic duties, 22 off Pacific Street
NONE with surname PARROTT at that polling place.


Muss, may I suggest you obtain the d.c. for William Parrott, I realise his parent's names are not displayed on the index, but that d.c. should give you other info to help confirm or eliminate him from your tree.  For example, his age, his children's names, his occupation, and (from memory, I think) it should also give you the funeral director, cemetery etc.   I am suggesting this d.c. ahead of the NSW 1883 m.c. simply because it is likely that the m.c. may not have all the usual family history info either.  It occurred at a time in NSW BDM history when they were receiving only summaries of the civil registrations, rather than the full details which will be found on the local parish records....
