St Peters Anglican vicarage, Broken Hill
« on: Friday 08 March 13 02:47 GMT (UK) »
I have a transcript for the marriage of Abraham PURCELL, age and parents unknown, to Ellen CULLEN, age unknown, father Thomas, no mother listed, on 4 Jan 1894 at the St Peters Vicarage (Anglican church).  Both parties usual residence is listed as Broken Hill, although Ellen is said to be residing with friends.  Ellen did have family living at Broken Hill.

Where do I find the church records, to see if there is any further info listed? 

Thomas CULLEN was a witness, and he would have been her brother.  Ellen came from Gawler SA.

Have searched Trove extensively and have many snippets but would like confirmation that my assumptions are correct!

It may be a tad before you have the info, as the volunteer archivist may well be actively involved in observing Lent.

I think this could be the birth or your Abraham PURCELL in SA.
Bimbowrie, SA is not that far over the border from Broken Hill, NSW.

PURCELL Abraham b. 15/12/1870
Birth Place/Residence: Bimbowrie North East
District Code: Ade; Book: 90; Page: 410
Father: Henry PURCELL
Mother: Mary Ann HALL

pcb

you may also wish to google yourself the Broken Hill Historical Society and contact them... they are a most useful source of information and have been operating since about 1965 so they have heaps of materials useful to genealogists.....

worth a shot anyway

2)   the family remnants may come onto the electoral rolls as well so it worth having a look at them as the occupations and other folk in house may come up on images..

Thankyou Merlina and Fusion
I think that that is the birth of Abraham ... I do have reasonable detail for the family, but really looking for clarification that my assumption of this connection is correct... Ellen's father Thomas died when she was just a child, so curious that he is listed on the marriage record, but not her mother, who was still alive...
I will check out the Broken Hill Historical Society... I visited them some time ago for other family connections, and they were very helpful...

Hi there. Abraham and Ellen are descendants of mine also. I have the marriage certificate and also Abraham's birth certificate which lists his father as Henry Purcell, who was a Sheppard at Bimbowrie Station at the time of Abrahams birth in 1870. Mary Ann Hall was his mother. I have been unable to trace Henry and Mary Ann's marriage. Hope this is of some assistance to you.

regards,
Lball
