I did all the easy ones two years ago. :2fun:

You don't know they are hard until you try them. I might be throwing in some easy ones. ;)

I'm looking at a convict in my tree who arrived in 1800. Married in 1811 someone born in Parramatta in 1796. His wife aged 15 :eek: was running a cake shop in Sydney.

I can't find his death reg in 1844 under any combination of names I try.

The pair didnt add a lot of info on their marriage cert. did they so havent got much to confirm or compare anything with.

But i am looking :biggrin:

Found this one, i would say you would have seen it tho.

James Cook aged 22 Farm Laborer. Ship Joshua - Arrived 6 Apr 1858
Nsw archives.

That would put his year of birth around 1836.

Yes, looked at that one. He arrived with a brother John 20. Both from Wiltshire so ruled him out.

Yeah, what a shock to pay for that certificate and find it half filled in.

Oh, the one I want is probably from Lancashire.

I got a cert. dated 1865 like that with barely anything on it. By the time i got the cert i knew more about them than what was on it :2fun::2fun:


Your Meurant fella i read was buried on his property so maybe his death wasnt registered :confused: Certainly a lot of other info on him tho.

A man of many talents it seems. Huge family. I have one son and one daughter in my tree who married a sister and brother so decided to add Ferdinand to the tree. One more Irish convict.
