Boorman
« on: Saturday 27 October 12 03:47 BST (UK) »
James and Jane BOORMAN (34 & 37) and sons William and Thomas (4 and 1 1/2)
came to Australia in 1841 on the "Moffatt" from Hurst, Sussex.

We could not find their marriage or their sons christenings on Family Search.
Can someone help ?

This looks like it could be young Thomas' birth registration on FreeBMD
Thomas Boorman September 1/4 1839 Ticehurst vol 7 page 430.

If all else fails then this will give his mother's maiden name or do you have her maiden name from the birth of a child in OZ?

Hello Alex & Jan

I found a marriage on the Sussex Marriage Index

Married at Goudhurst ,Kent
James Boorman,from Ticehurst,Sussex
Jane Watts from Goudhurst,Kent

7 April 1834.

Goudhurst is very close to the Sussex border.

I might be an idea to ask a Moderater to move this thread to the Kent Board.Its possible the Boys were Baptised at Goudhurst.

Kind Regards

omega from Sussex :)

Thanks so much for the replies - didn't think of looking on FreeBMD for births !
Should we post on the Kent Board ?

Thanks again,
Alex and Jan
