Hmm, Maggie raises more questions now than I had sense to ask her when I has a kid!!
William Neale Tatchell is given on her marriage Cert. as "Father" and her name is given as Bowden-Tachell.
The family had contacts with the Allinghams in Maggie's latter years but I never heard mention of the Tatchells. I was told that they were her employers and that she was under some indenture as "Nanny". The entry as "daughter" on the MCert. is interesting. I thought that was a nicety rather than fact- you know, father of the bride thing and someone to hand over the chattells and give-away the bride... '-)
Bill Jones' family was connected to miners (in Mid-North of SA near Burra, Kapunda, Peterburgh, Moonta) and to farming (Ashbourne, Finniss, Magill).
Maggie is supposed to have had a brother, Charlie Bowden, I have no records of him. The Bowden name was prominent in early SA one of the Colonial Officers was a Bowden- no relation though.
When Sussanah Arrington (?Harrington) died, Maggie was 24 yrs old and living near Moonta Mines, Sth Australia- some fair hike north from Finniss in those days. I guess the burial was left to her husband. A common ground burial suggests that she was not RC or Jewish and was probably a Protestant Christian of some kind. Where was she buried and where did she pass away?
