Charlotte Annie Roach 1856 - 24 July 1944
« on: Saturday 01 January 22 20:40 GMT (UK) »
Hello I hope you can help me.
I have been contacted by the great grand daughter of Charlotte who cannot work out who Charlotte's parents are. Charlotte married first William Edward Ware in 1875 saying  her father was Edward and then again she married Edward Burr in Adelaide in 1928, giving her father as John. DNA seems to connect her to either of 2 brothers John Long Roach or James Webb Roach, both of Bristol and both 1st cousins several times removed of mine. James Webb 's son James (1807 - 1883) certainly came to Australia, in 1849 aboard the barque "Mary Ann", sailing from Bristol to Port Adelaide via Plymouth. He and his wife Mary Ann Exell married in Bristol in 1824 had several children, one of whom was called Charlotte (1843 - 1936). There was an earlier child Edwin Richard (1827-1908) who features in the Police Gazette in 1889 in Ballarat and was convicted and imprisoned for 6 months. I have not been able to find a marriage for him. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help at all
Helen

Thanks for your help so far.
As I said I'm looking at this for a contact who is descended from Charlotte Annie. My information is from other ancestry trees, none of which seem to know who her father was, most agree his name was "John".
First marriage 15 March 1875 at St Patrick's Adelaide.
2nd marriage 3 January 1928 in Adelaide. Nothing else given on any of the trees I've seen. Buried in Cheltenham Cemetery 26 July 1944. Her year of birth is from her gravestone. Place of birth is given as Bendigo, but I've seen no support for this.
They seem to have had 12 children:Mary Frances 1875-1900; Lucy Matilda 1876-1915; Rose Florence 1879-1939; William Edward 1881-1881; Alfred Ernest Alexander 1882-1883; Leonard Clarence 1884-1884; Oliver Erskine 1890-1969; Ethel Phillipa 1892-1916; Ivy Gladys 1895-1983;Harold Frank Avondale 1897-1970.
Thanks again
Helen

"Nothing else given on any of the trees I've seen."

You need to see the first marriage certificate. BDM certificates, South Australia, do not have as much information recorded as you find in some other states.

You need to see names of witnesses, any addresses or locations or occupations recorded on the marriage certificate.

Otherwise all you will have is what you see on Ancestry trees....work submitted, and copied, by other researchers.

Hi all I am the descendant of Charlotte Annie Roach. I have looked at all records from her-thoroughly- She was born in Bendigo c1856-1868-(c1857).....from her death cert 1944 aged 88-in woodville adelaide- buried cheltenham- its just her parenbts as she doesnt appear in the regs..... (goldrush) - and adelaide hospital admissions.....Using dna I have narrowed down the family- but cant find the father- could it be an illigit daughter of one of the  Roach in this family?

Is it correct that James and Mary Ann arrived with children Charlotte (6) and James Henry (9) as well as Edwin (Edward) and George who were in their early 20's?

Who were the witnesses when Charlotte married to William WARE?
