My Australian Rellies!!
Posted by: Belinda Turvey Date: November 19, 2000 at 08:18:22
  of 859

Hi all
Here is a rundown of some of the rellies I am researching....my WISE and MAY families.These lines are very hard to trace because my grandfather Arthur Horace WISE, and some of his siblings, were not registered under the WISE name. Arthur's mother, Alice Mary MAY was not married to Robert WISE....in fact, Robert had many children who were born throughout Melbourne. To save a scandal, all Alice's children were registered in the name of PERKINS, which was her married name (she was originally married to Charles PERKINS) and whom she never divorced. Arthur was born in 1902 at Hoddle Street, Collingwood, Melbourne, VIC. Australia and was a famous jockey during the 1920s, coming third in the 1920 Melbourne Cup on 'Queen Comedy'. He resided earlier in Caulfield when he married my grandmother Gwendolyn Vernon Manning DAVIS from Melton Victoria, living later in St. Kilda, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Arthur and Gwen spent some years caretaking a Bacchus Marsh hotel which had been a MANNING concern for years !
William (could be James) BAILEY from England and his wife Sarah Anne SPARROW. They had a daughter Sarah Anne Mortimer BAILEY born 17 January 1888, who died in 1966 at Melbourne Victoria. She was married to Herbert HORNSBY b. 1882 at St Arnaud. I would also appreciate any information on the introduction of the disease HAEMOPHILIA into my father's side of my family, possibly through the BAILEYs. Females carry the defective gene that infect sons with the disorder. William BAILEY (who would have been a haemophiliac) and his wife Sarah Anne SPARROW had a daughter, Sarah Anne Mortimer BAILEY born 17 January 1888, who died in 1966 at Melbourne Victoria. She was married to Herbert HORNSBY b. 1882 at St Arnaud. Sarah Anne Mortimer BAILEY carried the defective gene which was passed onto my grandmother's brother Allen HORNSBY
Requiring information on the parents of Charles Dart (b. 1813) from Stinsford, Dorset England who arrived in Australia around 1850. He was married to Elizabeth Grant (B. 1818). His father may have been William Dart b. 1787 of Stinsford, Dorset who married Suzanna Purchase.
I am requiring info about James KILPATRICK and Ann Jane HEATHERS. They had a daughter, Mary Jane KILPATRICK who was born in Tyrone and married Richard Frederick MANNING at Liverpool in 1870.
I would appreciate any info on Catherine NORTON born 1840 Tipperary Ireland and her husband John Robert DAVIS born 1838 Tyrone Ireland. They had a son Edward Patrick DAVIS born 1864 at Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia. He married Emma May MANNING in 1897 at Caulfield, Melbourne, Victoria. Catherine's parents were Patrick/Peter NORTON from Ireland and his wife......I think she was Mary EGAN born 1803 at Tipperary Ireland..... both emigrated to Australia in 1840. They were married in 1928 in Ireland.
Any information on Joseph HORNSBY from England and his wife Miriam GOLDNEY of England would be appreciated. Many descendants of this couple now reside in Mildura and Woomelang, Victoria, Australia.
I would appreciate any info on Elizabeth GRANT born 1818 at Stinsford, Dorset, England and her husband Charles DART born 1814 at Stinsford, Dorset, England - they were also married there in 1834. They immigrated to Australia where they had a daughter Rebecca DART born 1849 at Mt Gambier, South Australia.
I am requiring info about Bernard MANNING and Ann FOLEY. They had a son, Richard Frederick MANNING who was born in Liverpool and who married Mary Jane KILPATRICK at Liverpool in 1870. They moved to Australia.
Please note LOWRIE is spelt with an IE. I would appreciate any info on Christina LOWRIE, wife of Robert DRAFFIN born 1850 at Cavan County Ireland. They were married in 1979 at Victoria, Australia. They had a daughter Jessie Cecelia DRAFFIN (my ggrandmother) who died 3 November 1841 at Mildura Victoria Australia. Jessie was married to Richard Augustus TURVEY born 1871 at Rupanyup Victoria Australia. Regards
Belinda Turvey
