I have finally tracked down a sister of my GGrandfather to Beeac, or Beechworth, Victoria, and am hoping that these names are familiar to someone. The sister is Ellen Gardiner, b. 1833, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England to Thomas Gardiner and Mary Ann Everard. She immigrated to Australia probably around 1855, and in 1860 married George Samuel Taylor. They had at least three children, Henry Bernard Taylor, b. 1872, Lucy Harriet Taylor, b. 1867, and Helen Maud (or Maud Helen) Taylor, b. 1870. Helen Maud married Daniel Scanlon, son of Dennis Scanlon (Scanlin) and Mary Fannan (Fanning). Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I can provide info on the Gardiners of Suffolk.
