Yes I am enjoying reading it -  I think it would make a great book (or film).   James is involved in a garrotting later but that will be a later chapter

I was worried where the children were during their drinking and crime sprees.  Here it says James was found sleeping in street with his 4  ??? children and then later Margaret was found sleeping in street with her 3  ??? children.

What a terrible time for the children!

A little more about the conditions of the poor children.    Here it refers to James Duval's wife as Mary but it must be a typo as it also refers to the assault on Hogan (which was elsewhere reported to be by James and Margaret Duval).

1889 could be your James Duval guilty of bigamy and charged with not paying maintenance to wife (wives  :D?)
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article13714530
Although James would be 70'ish so maybe not him  Edit to add:  It does say accused is a pensioner

1893 could be your James involved in a garrotting
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article13903897

1893 James Duval acquitted on charge of assault and robbery
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article71188430

Or perhaps it is the son? edit to add :  No you said the son had died in 1886.  (or someone else entirely)

cheers,
   Ros

I did hear there was another child called Margaret born 1847 but was not sure of it,this might explain the 4 children and Jane died at a young age,any wonder why,poor children.
Couldn't see anywhere how long James was jailed for the murder?
You have been great posting all this up,I am vey greatful Ros,
I wonder why I left this side of the family last to research?
Those horrible pair were my GGGGrandparents,glad it didn't continue down the line.
Cheers
Judy

It was a sad story.  Glad to hear at least one of the children had a family and a normal life.  It's not often you'd say that they would be better off in an orphanage (especially at that time).   But in this case it probably saved their lives!

cheers,

Ros on the two boys James and John,James had a child called James.
James Duval b.1872 d.1929
Married Mary E Quinn 1862
They had 11 children,so quite possible,lets see how far this criminal activity goes on for.lol :D

Here it says that James Duval of the Lady Kennaway had his ticker of leave cancelled for drunkenness in 1852
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article12948736

So he was a transported convict?  And on the same ship as Margaret?

cheers,
