Thomas QUINN, South Australia?
« on: Saturday 23 January 21 19:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

I'm originally from Adelaide but currently living in Spain and have been trying to look into our family history, mainly via ancestry, and have hit a few roadblocks.
My Great Grand parents on my mothers side being one of them and Thomas Quinn being the one we know the least about.
No one can tell me his DOB or DOD and ancestry offers something but that may not even be him.

So what I do know...
My Grandfather Thomas James Quinn was born in Rose Park on 1/3/1918 to Thomas QUINN and Beryl Pepper(more on her later)
He had two sisters Sylvia Quinn and Eileen Monica Quinn.

I am confident he is mentioned a couple of times in the police Gazette for unpaid fees, possibly related to my Grandfathers delinquency from a boys home.

There is also mention of an arrest in Broken Hill for indecent language in I think 1907 which says his age to be 26. So DOB possibly 1881 although it has what I think is a date underneath that possibly says 16-7-80. I can't really read what is in the remarks section, something about a scar perhaps and it lists his where born as Adelaide.
I have no way to know if this was actually him but  things like height and eye colour are helpful.
 Ancestry also offers up an 1884 DOB date.

A family story would have him working at the dockyards in Port Adelaide in the late 30's to 40's.

My Great Grand Mother whom he was married to we kind of know more but in some cases less about.
My family remember her as Beryl Pepper.
However searching that name proved impossible but what does come up is a Beatrice Quinn Pepper and Beatrice Eileen Quinn which makes sense as both Eileen and Beatrice have been family names. But beyond this no more is known about her either, she took my Mum on a trip to Tasmania once which maybe suggests her family lived there but again searching that proved difficult. I wonder if the name Pepper wasn't changed from Pfeiffer or similar. Pure conjecture on my part.

Ancestry also offers up a document I can't access that mentions this marriage and gives Thomas' fathers name as Edward. That's it though, just Edward could be a Quinn could be who knows.

I think that is most of what I know and have no idea if it is useful enough, if there are any things that may prove useful that I have missed please ask and I'll do my best to find an answer.

I guess I'm after any info anyone has or a way I may be able to find it to place who Thomas was and I guess Edward too as I would love to trace this side of the family back further. Who was his mother and their side.

Any ideas or direction would be greatly appreciated, I hope this is ok as a first post. I do have other queries as I find we have some earlish Aussie settler family history and it's fascinating but maybe at a later time.

Cheers
J

Thank you all for reading.

"..Thomas James QUINN was born in Rose Park on 1/3/1918 "

Can you please list all the information on this birth certificate.  It will have good information about the parents.

What other BDM certificates do you have for the people you are researching?

Where and when did your grandfather Thomas James QUINN, born 1918, marry?

Where and when did he die?

You need to register to see the details – I don’t know what info it will contain.
I imagine the entries are for the birth of daughters Dorothy and Sylvia
