Wallder - Sussex and Victoria, Australia

Hi Everyone

I am also researching the Wallder name. I have a George Wallder who was born in Harting, Sussex circa 1823. His parents were James and Hanna (or Mary) I have a feeling that this may the same family that Jean Earl in Canada may be researching although I am not sure how to get in contact with her. I have just come across her name when typing the name Wallder into a search engine. I believe that James (Georges father) was a blacksmith and that he was born in Portsmouth and married twice.

My George married Edith Joblin on 12 June 1843 in the Church of ST Marys in Portsmouth, Hampshire. His wife Edith was originally from the Isle of Wight and her father was Edward Joblin. Witnesses to the wedding were Jane Horn, Anne Orchard, Charlotte Ellen Horn and William Horn.

George and family came to Victoria, Australia sometime between 1851 and 1854. He was a hotel keeper at one time although was best know as a builder. He built the Presbyterian manse in Kalkallo, Victoria in 1854 and also a church in Seymour, Victoria that I am aware of.

Would love to hear from anyone with similar interests.

I can be contacted at either or
