Elizabeth Pearce 1863 - 1903
« on: Tuesday 09 June 20 03:50 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I have been trying to find a death notice for Elizabeth Pearce also known as HOLMQUEST, she was born in 1863 Amherst, Victoria and died at Kyneton, 1903.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

The 'correct' (for want of a better term) spelling of this name is HOLMQVIST.  The only death I can see is for an Elizabeth nee BROGAN.  She had children with a Henry/Olaf Hendrik and this article probably refers to that family.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/165401812

A family of eight children, whose ages ranged from 15 years to 6 months, were before the St. Kilda
Court yesterday for being neglected.  The mother died a fortnight ago, and the father had deserted. Six of the children were sent to the schools, and two were handed over to the care of friends. The surname of the family was Holmqvist.
