Tasmanian lookup request please - CANNON - YOUNG
« on: Saturday 02 November 13 07:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

I have come to a dead end on a couple and would love some help on any of their births/deaths/marriage/parents/immigration.

Thomas Cannon and Mary Louisa Young

They had 2 children, both born in Launceston.
Thomas Charles, born in 1893
Henry John, born in 1895

I assume they would have been born around the 1870 mark.

I believe that Thomas Charles married Vera Tyler in 1911.  Henry John married Elvie Grant in 1916.  The lovely people here helped me with Henry and Elvie recently (you can see I haven't managed to get too far on this side!).

Thanks so much in advance!

Jen

Wonder if her name was Mary Jane, not Mary Louisa.

This 1922 Electoral Roll shows Mary Jane CANNON at 8  Margaret Street Launceston West.
With Thomas CANNON , a fisherman.
 
Thomas Charles CANNON also  a fisherman is at 10 Margaret Street.
With him is Veronica Olive CANNON.

John CANNON, the chairmaker, seems to be at 6 Margaret Street.

I am not good at Tasmanian research, but others will help more effectively than me!

Thanks very much Sue.  I will look into those.  Everywhere I have looked seems to be a dead end.

Should I have put this on the bottom of the previous thread?

Not necessarily at all  ;D
The link Cando provided to your previous CANNON search just saves people from heading off after Henry John and Elvie about whom you already have information.

Edit - the 1932 death is a better match for Thomas born 1850.

CANNON - In memory of my dear Mother, Mary Jane Cannon, who departed this life 14th January, 1927. Ever remembered. Inserted by her loving son, H. J. C.

It may be safe to speculate that although Mary Louisa YOUNG was the biological mother of the children, it was Mary Jane who raised them after their mother's early death in 1897.  If that is Thomas' second marriage in 1906, the relationship may have started some time before the actual marriage.

So perhaps we are back to Henry John CANNON who married Elvie  ;D
