Did you see these memoriam notices for Catherine LORKING in 1912?
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article15351917

I was actually looking for a probate notice.  There is a gap in online indexes for probates between 1891 and about 1927 (very annoying).  I didn't see a probate notice but I will check the microfiche index next time I am there.   Hopefully if there is a probate it will have a death cert ...

cheers,

Hi
Just been reading threads and the name of Hodson has come up with a "who are they?" . I think I may know. Im researching the Barnes line too and this is where I think Hodson fits.  Patrick had 3 children with Adelaide - one was Catherine Barnes. I have a birth cert for a daughter Maude Elsie (from Catherine now johnston).
Now I have a New Zealand marriage cert 1905 listing Elsie Maude Johnston (parents Kathleen johnston nee Barnes father john williams johnston Barrister ) marriage to Harry Hodson actor. He is my great granfather. I think this must be your Hodson !

Hi
Not sure if I've already sent this lol new to this.
Just got Catherine Lorking's death cert. It lists 5 children, the eldest @ 32 is Elsie M. She is my Elsie maud (my ggran) who married Harry Hodson who are the hodsons in the funeral Notice. On Elsie 's birth certificate it has the father as Johnson 1879. I feel she(Catherine ) had Elsie and later married Lorking's as Elsie was raised as a lorkings.

Firstly I have to thank all, the info you guys have discovered and put on here it has given me sooo much to go on.  I now have found the death cert for Elsie maud hodson/hodgson( Catherine Barnes / lorking daughter ) and so not to be left with no surprises found she had another daughter Joan, but not from harry hodgson (she is not named on his death cert) feel she is from another. So the search continues. Again thank you for a great site.
