Have been thinking about the latter years of Wm Wadham... how long he might have lived and what he might have done with his time.

There is a family tree in Ancestry that says he died in Victoria Australia, and identifies him as the husband of Elizabeth Whitebread (the woman he married in England in the 1820s).  Therefore I know this is the same man as the one we are looking for.

Can anyone take a look at that for me and obtain a year? I don't have an Ancestry subscription.


BTW,
There are dozens of mentions of a Wm Wadham in South Australia 1850-1895.
The obit for this fellow shows he is a different man of the same name.

What were his folk’s names?

No William WADHAM deaths on VICBDM.

No William WOODHAM to fit either.

So far as I can see, William never spelled his name in any other way but 'Wadham'.

It is his son Charles that modified this to Woodham.
Charles was born a year before his father was sent away and therefore never really knew him.
He would have had to work out the spelling of his name as he grew up.

(The life of Charles has been pretty well researched before so please don't go hunting for him).

Oh! One exception springs to mind:
In 1833 William's wife in England appears on a parish register as Elizabeth Woodham.
The spelling was no doubt decided by the person keeping records.

You could email here to see if they have record of his burial. Maybe he’s buried with someone:

I see no VIC marriage, under the various surnames, for him.

Was he eventually granted permission to marry in TAS?

Age is way wrong: My William was born in 1806.
He was a father by 1829. He'd be fifteen years old according to your Hosp age.



There was another William Wadham, a gentleman, who died in South Australia in 1895.
He was born in 1810 or so.


My William's father was Isaac. I can;t remember the mother just yet. I can look it up.
His Australian descendants would have no idea of the names of his parents
as the parents lived in England.
