My name is John Timewell and I live in Wigan, England. While tracing my family tree I notice that James Timewell (b. 1826) married Margaret Gilmore in Australia and had eight children. Any information about these would be greatly appreiciated. However, something about James Timewell puzzles me.
He was the son of Stephen Upton Timewell and Jane Farley, and before emigrating to Australia, he married Elizabeth Lidstone in 1847 and had 6 children. Despite the fact that Elizabeth lived until 1905 and divorces were very uncommon in those days, James appears to have left his family in England,then married and started another family on the other side of the world. Can you solve this mystery for me and perhaps exchange any information about the Timewell family tree?
Thank you.
