Looking for info about my gt gt grandfather George Renshaw (possibly William George), born in Ashbourne Derbyshire abt 1844 & came to Australia (Adelaide) on the Barque Macedon abt 1850 with his mother. George died 19 March 1906 in Greenock South Australia after working his way through the early mining areas of South Australia. George married Mary Ann Heaver in Adelaide 8 Jan 1868. On the Marriage certificate the name is given as "Rencher", this may have been misread or mis-spelled. His mother apparently remarried, lived for some time in Wagga Wagga Australia but died in Greenock South Australia 7 Aug 1903. Hr death certificate records William John Clarke as her father, but this may have been her 2nd husband, or after surviving 2 husbands she could have gone back to her maiden name.
