Charles MURRELL c1829-1902 Tasmania
« on: Saturday 06 April 13 10:29 BST (UK) »
Hello

I am researching the Murrells of Tasmania.  In particular I am hoping someone may be able to help me with some information about Charles Murrell and his wife Elizabeth Tyrrell (c1823-1910).  I would greatly appreciate any help with the birth place, birth date, parents names and place of marriage for Charles and Elizabeth.  I know they settled in Castle Forbes Bay and Shipwrights Point, Tasmania and had several children. 

Thanks in advance

Colonial Tasmanian Family Links database
At this database -
http://portal.archives.tas.gov.au/menu.aspx?search=8   and search...

(1) James CATTON (b. 1819) you find four births 1851-1854 Hobart, to mother Elizabeth TYRRELL and married 1850. This last birth, 1854, is unnamed daughter.

(2) Charles MURRELL (the one b. 1830) you can find six births 1858 - 1869, Franklin, to mother Elizabeth TYRRELL.

(3) John William RISELEY b. 1852 m. Mary Jane MURRELL b.1854     married Franklin 1876


Mercury 13 Aug 1910
MURRELL-Passed peacefully away on the 10th lnst., at her daughter, Mrs. John Riseley's residence, Shipwrights' Point, Elizabeth, relict, o/ the late Charles Murrell, in the 87th year of her age. Funeral ......Cornelian Bay.

(this gives birth year 1823)

Permission to Marry
CATTON James "Waterloo"       TYRREL Elizabeth "Tory" 18 DEC 1849

Story might be...... convicts James CATTON and Elizabeth TYRELL  married. Then Elizabeth has second family with Charles MURRELL.

Daughter Mrs John RISELEY is the unnamed female b. 1854...Elizabeth's first family.

I wonder if there is a death to find for James CATTON?

Kazzalady has not been active on rootschat since May 2013.  Hopefully she has notifications turned on but just in case she hasn't I have sent her a personal message with this thread linked and have included your email address.

Cheers :)

Brand new member, excited to have found such a helpful group! I am also researching the Murrell's in Tasmania (among others) but looking for more recent information about Lionel Douglas, or Douglas Lionel. Both seem to exist and I can't tease out whether they are two different men or one. I've found cohabitation (no marriage records) with Rita Murrell, Betty Murrell (formerly Spikesman nee Norton) and newspaper records of a divorce from Marnie Linda Murrell. I can't find any conflicting Electoral Roll entries for Lionel/Douglas so I'm a bit stumped. Looking forward to tapping the wisdom here in the future!
