Zachariah Burn
« on: Saturday 22 August 20 10:30 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone, Just looking for some info on Zachariah Burn.  I have found the coroners report but can't find out when he came to Australia and why and if his family came with him.  He was originally from Sunderland in England.  I only have an approx. birth date of 1840 for him.  From what I have found I am pretty certain he married a Christiana Thurlbeck and they had a daughter Mary Jane Burn.  He died in Newcastle in1870 and is buried in the West Wesleyan Cemetery of NSW

Thank You
Sally

Possible extra children besides Mary Jane, born to Burn/Thurlbeck in Sunderland:

Mary Jane, M qtr 1863 Vol:10a Pg 466 mmn Thurlbeek

John George, D qtr 1864 Vol:10a Pg 497 mmn Thurlbeck

Zachariah Wilkinson, S qtr 1866 Vol:10a Pg 521 mmn Thurlbeck - died 1867

Isabel, J qtr 1868 Vol:10a Pg 581 mmn Thurlbeck

Possible Isabel and her mother in 1871 :-\

1871 Census Sunderland Union Workhouse, Bishopwearmouth
Christiana Burns,29, married, born Sunderland
Isabella Burns,2, born Sunderland

So possibly the family didn't follow Zachariah to Australia.
