I understand that George Thake and Emily Cowling left the UK on 3 Nov 1875 and arrived in Australia 26 Feb 1876. They travelled with another Thake family living in Ashdon a Samuel, b 1838, Radwinter and his wife Hannah Gypps, b 1843, Radwinter, plus their 4 children.

The children of George & Emily born in Ashdon, that I am aware of were Clara who was baptised 8 Nov 1868 in Ashdon, Elizabeth Ada 1871, William Ernest & George Herbert both 1875.

George and Samuel Thake were ist cousins sharing grandparents John Thake 1759-1826 and Susan Redhouse 1758-1842, who are incidently also my wife's 4GGrandparents.

Emily Cowling was born on the 27 June 1846 and baptised on the 25 June 1848 in Ashdon. Her parents were a William Cowling born Norwich Norfolk c1802, buried Ashdon 13 Jan 1873 and a Charlotte, c1816-1905 I do not know her maiden name or when and where they married but she came from either Great or Little Sampford, two villages near Ashdon.

George Thake was born in Ashdon 7 Feb 1844 and baptised there 7 Apr 1844. He married Emily Cowling 5 Nov 1864 in Ashdon. His parents were William Thake 1816-1862 and Ann Woodley 1820- 1883. They had married 21 May 1843 in Ashdon. After the death of William Thake, Ann Woodley remarried a James Hawes in Ashdon, 24 Sep 1864.
