seeking TURNER family, Tasmania
« on: Saturday 09 February 13 23:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I am looking for details on the family of Benjamin Turner b. 3 Mar 1868, and Maude Challis
b. 29 Nov 1881 from Nile in Tasmania. I have first names only, Coralie, Nell, Marion,Ivy, Benjamin and
Elvie, there is also Sydney and Roy, but I think they were both adopted. I think Sydney's birth name
was Charles Royton Challis b. 27 June 1910.
hope someone can help
cheers Craig :)

Thanks so much for that information, I didn't have the birth dates, the Challis part was a family
secret until after Sydney's death, there are Challis's in my family tree on my grandmothers side,
his mother may have been related.
Do you have info on Benjamin Turner's brother John Turner b.6 Aug 1860 married Mary Crabtree
b.24 Aug 1886 , I think they also lived at nile.
Thanks Craig :)
