John Pye Crane's missing child
« on: Wednesday 02 January 19 04:38 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

I am currently looking for the missing child of John Pye Crane and Leah Eleanor/Eleanor Leah Moore. I have found birth records for their children: Alfred, Blanche, Edgar and Roland. However I have found a newspaper article listing his children as Alfred, Blanch, Edgar, Bruce (Roland) and Nellie. I have not been able to find anything on Nellie and I was hoping someone else might be able to help me. If i am correct, as the newspaper articles lists them from oldest to youngest, then Nellie would be born after 1878, which was when Roland Bruce was born. The other four children where born in Castle Hill or Parramatta, so if anyone else has any luck, i would greatly appreciate it.

I have found one Nellie E Crane born to Blanche in 1894. Blanch married several years later but all that is listed for father is Crane. No first name. So i am wondering if maybe Blanch had Nellie out of wedlock and John and his wife "adopted" her. This is the only Nellie I have found linked to this family.

I found Nellie's baptism. The only parent listed is Blanche Matilda Crane and she is listed as a single woman. I think i have found my missing Nellie Crane.

Nice sleuthing!  :)

You may already have this, but Nellie married John A GRAHAM in 1914 (reg 2423, Canterbury) and died in 1983 aged 89 at Berala Nursing Home, late of Auburn (see Ryerson Index). The NSW BDM death shows her parents as John Pye and Leh Eleanor so she must have been raised as theirs as you say.
