Mary Dykes Death
« on: Sunday 04 April 21 01:41 BST (UK) »
I have done extensive research on my gggrandmothers life in
Australia after she arrived as an irish oprphan on the New Liverpool
ship 1849. She married a convict John Dykes, had 6 children , the last
one in 1864, just after her husband died the year before.
 I would love to know what happened to Mary Dykes (nee Kelly) but
after that the trail goes cold. Iv tried looking for death certificates in
Victoria records etc. Is there any other option i can explore to find some
answers? Many Thanks J

Can you please identify the 6 births that you see to this couple....in Victoria.

Which of the children where alive when father John died?

Do you have a marriage certificate for one of these children to see how mother is named with possibly the description...... "deceased"

If Mary did not marry again you might expect that the children would go into care.

Good point, yes i wondered if they had gone into care.
I have seen a marriage cert for Mary Anne Dykes ( my
ggrandmother) and no mention of her mother being
deceased. Joseph John died 1864, year after his father
died aged 3. Andrew James 1864 -1904 havent found
any documents for them.

J...

When Jessie died in Hamilton in 1869, whoever gave the info on her/his DC thought her/his mother was Catherine!!!  Maybe an indication that Mary was deceased for a time, maybe not.  Maybe worth taking a look at if you haven't already.

Marriage certificate for Mary Ann DYKES - does it describe father as being deceased.

Can you list all the information on this document. It might lead to whoever brought her up.

There is a Mary Dykes , age 81, who died in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1913. That would be a birth around 1832 that would fit.
Is it possible she moved to NZ to be with her daughter’s family, who were in Waikaia (not far from Dunedin).

Deserting Children. — Mary Dyke, the mother of the two children who were brought before the Bench on the previous day as being deserted, was remanded to Tuesday. The Mayor said if it were shown that the woman had heartlessly deserted her children, he would make an example of her, by giving her a long term of imprisonment.
