GORST - WILSHIRE family Victoria
« on: Thursday 06 August 20 00:18 BST (UK) »
Richard GORST married Louisa WILSHIRE.
They had a daughter Mary Ann GORST around 1859 in Maldon.
Richard was a publican in and around the Goldfields region of Bealiba and Rheola in the 1870's.
Mary Ann married John CATTO in 1886 in Victoria.
Richard GORST died in an East Melbourne Hospital in 1886 aged 65 years and is buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery.

I have extensive details of the Catto family but can find very little on the Gorst family.
In particular when and where Louisa died and is buried.
When and where Richard and Louisa married (if they did)
Also an Ann WILSHIRE married William NUTT and was having children in the same area and same time. Wondering if she was a sister?

Any other details anyone could come up with would be much appreciated.
