Hello Laurel,

My husband is a Smith connected via the Bunnett family to the Walkden family.I notice you mention John Venn Walkden in your correspondence with Dorothy.
John Venn WALKEN(on marriage)/James Venn WALKDEN (on death) son of Richard Walkden & Mary Dougan, married Emma Stanley in 1874. STANLEY was the surname from Emma's first marriage to Frederick Henry Augustus STANLEY. Her maiden name was actually BUNNETT. Her sister Jane was my husband's great grandmother. Jane was born in Geelong & married John Distin VARLEY but Emma & her brother John were born in Norfolk England. There were 11 Bunnett children.

John/James & Emma had a daughter Emily Mary WALKDEN born 1879 in Carlton. She died in March 1967 and is buried at Fawkner cemetery with her husband Charles DOWELL. He was born 1888 in Fitzroy son of Charles Dowell & Eliza Pearce.
Charles & Emily had the following children pre 1920. Charles in 1910, George in 1913, Jean Sophie in 1917 & Jack in 1919. All born Carlton or North Carlton.
I only discovered all this yesterday.
If you want more on the Bunnett family please ask.
Debra Smith (qld)
