    Channon Family

    Dave, it appears that for a portion of their lives, James & Ann (Exeter) were non-conformist and possibly had to wait for a visiting minister for baptisms and therefore they happened in batches. Stephen, Matilda and Letitia were baptised together in 1817, Melinda & Horatio in 1821. The following...

    Channon Family

    I will share this hand-drawn tree to see if it gets us anywhere. It's on foolscap so a little truncated and not easy to decipher, also I had to reduce the resolution to get a small enough file to attach .Thomas and Anne Peake/Pakenham are roughly in the centre. Above that line to the left is the...

    Channon Family

    Some clarification: Thomas (Gibraltar) had 3 sons and 2 daus. Thomas (3rd) was the first to go to Australia arriving (I think) as a 3rd Mate on the 'Chowringhee' in 1855. He went to Adelong where he had a gold-mining lease titled'Gibraltar', not a coincidence I think. He ended up in Frogmore...

She died on June 8, 1844 at Woodlane Tce, Falmouth aged 37 of 'inflammation of the lungs'. Wife of Thomas Channon Guard of Coach. Ann must have shared her parentage with her children...

    Channon Family

    Dave, thanks for the info. While the family believes Ann was a Pakenham, there is no proof, nor is there any way of knowing how she got the name Peake. I've researched this family fairly thoroughly, even visited Capt Wm Pakenham RNs grave in Northern Ireland. I've my own theory about Ann Peake...

    Channon Family

    Hello, I'm Janet, a newbie from Sydney. I have noted previous posts on Thomas Channon and his wife Ann Peake, I'm now looking to confirm (if possible) his parents as James Channon and Ann Giles from Exeter which is largely based on the probate on his estate being granted to his brother Frederick...
