Henry Swinnerton Divorce.
« on: Monday 11 April 16 16:57 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

I have used this site many times in the past and have been astounded and very grateful  for the help and information found by fellow researchers. So I thought I would try my luck again.

I am now looking for any information of a Henry Swinnerton who divorced Frances Gladys Ethel Swinnerton about 70 years ago at the Bendigo Divorce Court.  On the grounds of desertion.

I don't know who this Henry was or where he came from or went to, as I cannot trace him on any of the relevant Swinnerton family Tree's.

Thanks
bswinno.

It doesn't help with your quest but I think it was Henry , not Frances , who was divorced for desertion :

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/203368915?searchTerm="henry swinnerton"&searchLimits=

Henry Swinnerton married Frances Gladys Ethel Yeoman in Victoria in 1924. Hopefully someone will have access to further details of the marriage which may help.

Swinnerton's seem to have created their own family tree. ;D

William SWINNERTON and Wife Ellen Jane MANNIX, had that I can find, 10 children, one of which was Henry in Victoria just prior to and just after the turn of the century.

Henry was born 1899 at Heathcote Vic. Ref # 19297

So that now gives me Henry's parents names, and a place of birth.
Also his wife's surname.
I can now look to see if I can find them.

Thanks guys.

There are some on-line trees for Henry SWINNERTON b 1899, Heathcote, Victoria.  These seem to be reasonably well-researched with mentions of his parents. 

Marriage of parents:
NSW 1892 #5144, registered Mossgiel New South Wales
Ellen J Mannix   
William Swinnerton


Although married in NSW the children listed on the trees were all born in Victoria registered variously at Bendigo, Strathfieldsaye and Heathcote.

There is no earlier information given re Ellen MANNIX but William SWINNERTON was, perhaps, born in Victoria, 1854

Birth
Victoria, 1854, #2282
William SWINNERTON
Birth Place   Ballarat East, Victoria
Parents: William SWINNERTON, Eliza MCQUADE

Death:
Victoria, 1939, #16124
Wm SWINNERTON, 87,
Birth Year:   abt 1852
Death Place:   Bendigo, Victoria
Father's name:   Wm SWINNERTON
Mother's name:   Unknown

These would need to verified by certificate as there may have been another person of the same name and about the same age.

Possible death for Ellen

Victoria, 1924 #13054
Ellen Jane SWINNERTON, 60
Place of death; Bendigo, Victoria
Father's name:   Jas MANNIX
Mother's name:   Johanna FINNERTY

There is a birth for another Ellen MANNIX in Victoria in 1870 with different parents - so I think it's a different person.

The date for Ellen 30/11/1924
For William 29/7/1939
