I have no death for Alfred. The E/R suggests he died between 1942 and 1949.

Can we rule this one out by finding him still married to Mary after 1910 and by finding he is not a saddler.

Alfred Ernest Davey was born on 20 November 1877 in Sandhurst, Victoria, Australia. He was the son of Thomas Henry Davey and Emma Jane Greathead. He married Mary Ellen Evans Warne, daughter of Francis Warne and Jane Ann Evans, on 15 February 1905 the ceremony took place at the home of the bride's parents at Thompson Street, Bendigo.

Thanks gibbo. :)

Well, saddler and "youngest son of T. IT. J3avey, Bendigo" is enough to convince me he married twice. That would be T. H. Davey.

The pob Bendigo and the reg with Sandhurst seemed to indicate we had 2x Alfred Ernest.

One more clincher. He is buried with his 1st wife although his 2nd died before he did.
 
Yes, thanks.

Just one other note. I did read and quote from that other tree and it did not mention that Alfred Ernest remarried.
 
Yeah i noticed that as well but i think that tree was done years ago so maybe they hadnt gotten that far with searching :confused: Who knows :2fun::2fun:
 
Yes, that fact and the Sandhurst/Bendigo together sent me off looking for a 2nd Alfred Ernest.

MARRIAGE.
DAVEY - KILFEDER.-On 28th December, 1910, at All Saints' Pro-Cathedral, by the Rev. W. E. H. Percival, Alfred E., youngest son of T. H. Davey, Bendigo, to Edith, second daughter of J. M. Kilfeder, Bendigo.
 
From this death in Victoria:

7119/1929 DAVEY Thos Hy 87 DAVEY Wm - NANCARROW Grace - Sandham

I'm now looking for the marriage of William & Grace. And a birth for Thomas Henry.

Also birth and death for both William and Grace.
 
May or may not be the right one.

A tree has the birth for Thomas as 1833 St Austell and baptism in 1839 at Finsbury St Luke. It also shows him in 1851 at St Austell.

The only Thomas I can find in 1851 in St Austell is with family but parents are not William and Grace.

The tree shows a marriage to Emma GREATHEAD but lists a death for Thomas in 1926 Middle Park as against 1929 Sandham. It also shows no parents for Thomas.

So, as usual, what parts of the tree are correct? :rolleyes:

Ignoring the tree and using age at death and parents from death reg:

possible

But that does not fit if the marriage was 1858 in Victoria.

So is that the wrong death for Thomas Henry in 1929 and therefore the wrong parents?

The tree has parents as James DAVEY & Maria RICKARD.

It also has the death of Thomas Henry as 1926. If we rule out the 1929 death with mother = Grace then we are left with this one and I don't see how it can fit:

Death 14730/1926 DAVEY Thos Hy 32 - DAVEY Frederick Francis - RUBINDS Elizth - Melb E

I didn't see another death in 1920s for another Thomas DAVEY/DAVY.

So looking for a death for Thomas with parents James & Maria

Hello Richard and welcome to the Forum.


No, I'm a Hamilton and very remotely connected by the Kilfeder and Mellefont families from Ireland.

I was just trying to prove or disprove some of the details in trees publised on the net re the Davey family.

Regards,

Dave
