In Reply to: Re: QUEENSLAND - BIRTHS - DEATHS - MARRIAGES by Colin Maloney of 1996

Dear Colin,

As Ian is having ongoing problems with his computer he has asked me to answer queries from his posting.

The Queensland records that I, (and Ian) have access to for Queensland only go to 1889, but lets see what I can find!

Margaret TURTON did not remarry in Queensland up to 1889. I found that a Margaret TURTON married a Thomas HALLIGAN in Murrumburrah,NSW in 1907. Ref: 1907/5066- again no way of knowing if connected?

Eliza Ann TURTON married John NELLER in Queensland on 24 December 1886
Ref: 1887/BO11147.

There were two births that I found for the above couple:

Robert Joseph NELLER born 1/12/1887 in QLD Ref: 1888/BO40224

Florence May NELLER born 5/5/1889. in QLD Ref: 1889/B043599

I also found a further birth to Thomas and Margaret TURTON (nee ROTHERHAM) of a Frank TURTON born 5 Dec 1865 in QLD. REF: 1866/002198

I found the following John TURTON married Ellen SMITH, registered in Yass in 1882. Ref:1882/6833,

John TURTON married Eliza M JONES registered in Sydney in 1892. Ref: 1892/495

but have no way of knowing if these relate to you or not.

I could not identify any other marriages in NSW nor the death of Margaret TURTON, on the assumption, that she did not remarry up to 1945.

It may be that it was only the two girls came to NSW, as one daughter did marry in Queensland and that her sister and brother remained in Queensland with the Mother.

Hope this is of some small help
Good luck
