Need help to find info on Richard Bailey
« on: Wednesday 13 March 19 17:26 GMT (UK) »
Greeting,

I have a family member that I have been researching and have been able to find very little info on him. Richard Bailey was born in approximately 1825 possibly in England. Later he relocated to Australia and married Grace Cundy on 19 Jun 1848 in Schoolhouse Kooringa South Africa. She was Born in 1833 in Cornwall England and died 20 Sep 1887 in Greymouth, West Coast New Zealand. Her parents are Peter and Mary Ann Snell. their kids include Mary Ann, Catherine, Richard and John Bailey. Grace also remarried to John Day and John Low. I have no other info on him to include parents or death, any info would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Hi there,

When he married in South Africa what information did he provide to the clergy about himself?

You note he relocated to Australia ..... do you know when and/or where?   

You note that Grace died in New Zealand,  do you have her d.c. and does it show how long she had lived there?

Have you considered  Did he die there?  ...perhaps .... Does his d.c. show how long he lived in any of the Australian colonies?

Where have you looked for him ....

JM

According to the Australia Marriage Index (1788-1950) the location is schollhouse Kooringa registered at the Murray, South Australia. I have not been able to locate the actual certificate to see if further information was revealed. He is listed in 1841 England census at the age of 15 with no parents listed. I have also not been able to find a death record for him in Australia or New Zealand. However according to his great grand daughter he arrived in Aukland new Zealand on the "Ocean" around 1855 listed as a seaman. I have also not been able to locate Graces death certificate but she is listed under the New Zealand death index (1848-1966) dated 1887 registered in Ahaura, Aukland New Zealand.

Their son John was born in Victoria in 1857 - do you have that birth certificate?  It should give Richard's place of birth, age and occupation.

I have not been able to locate the actual certificate to see if further information was revealed.........I have also not been able to locate Graces death certificate but she is listed under the New Zealand death index (1848-1966) dated 1887 registered in Ahaura, Aukland New Zealand.

You have to purchase certificates from the relevant registries.

The SA marriage certificate won't give much information, a father's name at most.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.
