It does seem to be the same child.

The backstory description of his circumstances is at odds with other information.

I see the death of a woman named Matilda FISHER in BURROWA in 1878, Parents listed as Samuel and Jane.

I can't see a record of her birth in NSW. Perhaps just a co incidence of names.

She is buried at Burrowa (Boorowa)Cemetery. 8th June 1878 aged C. 20 years

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/60147780 Empire 29 December 1853 ... Samuel Fisher giving evidence in court about his wife, four children, supporting Sue's earlier post  :)

 
I think she was not mentally well in 1853.

Yes,  I think that is a Mrs FISHER, as in Matilda, the wife of Edwin FISHER ...  :)

Hi sparrett
Blimey that is so sad. I definitely think this is same child. I feel so sad & thank you. I have no doubt this is their son Samuel. Too many coincidences.
Grafton for one - as this is where he lived married & had children & died.
I really wish sometimes we could help what went on & no had absolutely no idea as never had seen this.
Then it says father went to Victoria diggings well that makes sense because he went to Bendigo to mine (the goldmining area of Eaglehawk/Bendigo) & this is how my GG granny Jane end up there & married & so on & then I had heard Samuel went back to Sydney. So you have filled in a huge gap.
All this is so eye opening & just so sad.

That's the trouble when I am doing my best to fill in gaps yet there is always more. Very thankful

Answered a lot of questions about young Samuel. How sad he was deserted.

Also this Matilda lady - I don't know of her?? I wonder if just a coincidence. I know where Boorowa is, in the middle of nowhere & a complete small weeny town. I don't know if they would have went there as a few hundred km & sort of middle of nsw??

Again I thank you for all this

I think Matilda FISHER  can be discounted as part of your family.

JM has pointed out she was most likely FISHER by marriage.See Reply #20

I do think the Jane FISHER entries in the Darlinghurst Gaol listings in the 1870's were for another Jane FISHER, not yours.  There are few identifying details such as age or birth place so cannot confirm she is yours.

I don't know how your g. grandmother ended up in Bendigo.

Did she go with her father Samuel?

His siblings are
John who was born Ireland & died on trip out as a 1 year old 1840-1841, Sarah Ann (married Charles Stacey) 1842 -1909, Mary 1844 - No idea what became of this girl, Jane 1845 - 1938 (my gg granny) married Martino Borserio (he deserted her & married Giovanni Pianto, James 1846 - 1914 (I have found nothing about him) and Samuel 1849 - 1939 and married Emily Izetta Ashburn

Hoping this information is of assistance & again thank you

Hi Sparrett, I agree I don't think the 1870 Jane is the same I seen this yesterday I have a feeling she may be dead by this time??

Good question how did Jane get to Bendigo - I can only guess with her dad 1865 (her age would be about 19) is when she married Martino Borserio and they lived in Eaglehawk which is Bendigo area

Thank you

You have listed five children not including John who died in infancy.

The press notice re the attempted suicide says four children, so another was deceased by 1853.

Sue

ADDING
Where did you get the date 1865 for the removal to Bendigo?

Thank you Sue,
there is the answer for Mary. I'd say she must be the little one who passed. This is sadder by the minute. Good lord but it answers why I couldn't find anything on this little one. All I an say i'm glad Jane went to Eaglehawk.

Thank you Still digesting all that you and Majm have found

Marriage to: Martino BORSERIO
Victoria, Australia Registration #: 00666 BMD Victoria
 St Killians Catholic church, Sandhurst, bendigo Victoria Australia Mar 22 1865

I have also personally seen this in the church earlier this year.  Wasn't allowed to take photo But this I personally know. This man is my GG grandad. They had Martin  & then he had son James who had my father James. There were other children as well

Thank you
