Quite a few of my ancestors were reinterred at various cemeteries from Devonshire St  :)  Australian Cemeteries Index misses some of them.  But their details have been found on headstones/footstones or even on shared headstones/footstones with others interred in same plot/double plot/vault/monument.

Did Thomas died in November 1822?  There was an Inquest 21 November 1822.

Something odd, but … I will type up anyway….
Sydney Burial Ground re-Interment Register of 1901. 

Thomas RUSHTON died 21 December 1822 (note I mentioned an inquest for same name but one month earlier)

C of E, transferred to Rookwood  Section AAA, Plot 554-9,
With Morgan,
Applicant for re-burial :  John B MORGAN, Flood St, Leichhardt.


I wonder if there's a headstone, and if so, if it gives age or parents' names.

Thanks everyone. I'll keep plugging away. The Rookwood site gives me a date of interment but no details about him. But as suggested I have started an Australian thread asking for a cemetery look-up if someone can do that for me. I have also, as suggested, asked the moderators to give this thread more of a Liverpool emphasis. I found the Rushton-Tatlock marriage bond which says he was 21 "or above" in 1774, not that he was necessarily 21, so am disregarding that as an indicator of his birth date (the bride was 15 "or above"). Death aged 78 in 1822 gives us 1744 birth. Convict ship log gives us 1748 birth. The 1745 baptism at St Peter's in Liverpool, son of Robert, fits the bill but we can't be sure that is him.

Yes, thanks. Thomas Rushton and his wife Amelia had at least eight children who died in early childhood – six sons, Charles, John, John Tatlock, John, Robert and George, and two daughters, Sarah and Eliza -- as well as the two daughters who survived and came out to Australia.

I decided to explore the possibility that the Thomas baptised at St Peter's on 31 Mar 1745, son of Robert, might be our man. If that is the case his father might be the Robert who married Rachel Kekwick in a Quaker ceremony at Penketh in 1738. The marriage was noted at the Hardshaw East Monthly Meeting. There was an Isabel Rushton (possibly Robert's sister, and described as the daughter of another Robert Rushton) who married a Daniel Kekwick (possibly Rachel's brother) in a Quaker ceremony at Marsden two years earlier. The widowed Rachel Rushton's funeral in 1788 was in the Quaker meeting hall at Marsden. Is it likely that a man from the Liverpool area (possibly Aintree/Walton on the Hill) would be marrying a woman from Penketh, and perhaps originally from Marsden? And more importantly I guess, how much intermarrying would there have been between, say, Anglicans and Quakers? I initially thought it unlikely that a brewer would have a Quaker mother but I gather 18th century Quakers drank alcohol because it was safer than water. They just didn't drink to excess. Again, any thoughts greatly appreciated. Geoff
