Elizabeth Sanderson Pomeroy - died in Sydney 1937
« on: Sunday 22 April 18 08:56 BST (UK) »
Hello Australia,

I am not at all all familiar with Australia's BMD/Census archives so I hope you can help.

Can anyone help me to backtrack through the life of Elizabeth Sanderson Pomeroy
who died in Sydney in 1937, according to Findmypast.

Critically important for my research is whether she was born on Australia or migrated from the UK.
Age at death would also be a deciding factor as to whether she is the person I am looking for.

Any guidance welcome.
Thanks.
-David C

According to NSW BDM index her parents were John and Margaret.

Death notice here (doesn't give age, only children's names )

Thank you so much, folks.

You can stop there.
The person I am looking for was born in the UK in 1893.
Therefore you have already managed to prove that she is not this person.

You folks were very fast  :)

You may want to note that if you are going to again post on the Australia board, that this is the wrong section to be posting in, for general enquiries.

Birth dates are often incorrect.

This Elizabeth’s maiden name was Wright.

3684/1909 POMEROY Leslie F to WRIGHT Elizabeth S SYDNEY

This is the 1919 grave of Elizabeth’s mother Margaret: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/146125709/margaret-wright. It also mentions an aunt Elizabeth Sanderson.
Both ladies have Peter and Jane as parents according to the NSW BDM index. I suspect that these sisters could be from the following family:

Peter Sanderson X1851(Dover, Kent) with Jane Sarah Denford (or Dainford)
Children:
Mary Jane Sanderson bap 17 August 1852 Dover
Peter Sanderson born 24 Jul 1853, bap 14 August 1853 Dover
NN (male) Sanderson reg 1854 Dover
Margaret Elizabeth Sanderson bap 5 March 1856 Dover (reg 1855 Dover)
Elizabeth Sanderson bap 18 November 1857 Dover

This family seems to disappear from England after the birth of their last child. Did they emigrate before the 1861 census? If yes, then “Lalla” might not have been born in England?
Elizabeth’s father died in Auckland NZ. Could more members of the family have lived in NZ?
