Alfred STEPHEN & Virginia CONSETT

More than one marriage connecting the families:

Marriage of Montagu Consett, 2nd son of Sir Alfred Stephen, Chief Justice of NSW, to Emilie Clara, 3rd daughter of the late Rev. John Jennings Smith, Incumbent of Paterson on 25th May. Officiating minister Rev. Alfred H. Stephen

A clergyman on both sides so I gained 2.

:biggrin:

Certainly a well connected lot, may be some truth in the George the IV business :rolleyes:
 
Yes, the tree was way out with Florence born 1835 London. But then again, the tree has a remarriage for John in Oxfordshire, 3 years after his burial in NSW. :rolleyes:
 
Death 1174/1886 STEPHEN ELEANOR M P - WILLIAM - ELEANOR M - SYDNEY

Sir Alfred's 2nd marriage in Hobart 1838.

Eleanor Martha Pickard BEDFORD born 1810 London.

Arrival in Tasmania. ???

The tree does not list her parents so don't know if the family arrived or just Eleanor.

This answers the question. More than just Eleanor arrived before 1841 census.

SELBY, MARY
Gender: Female
Birth
Marriage/Relationship: 1836 - HOBART,Tasmania ( BEDFORD, EDWARD SAMUAL PICKARD )


BEDFORD, ELEANOR MARTHA P
Gender: Female
Birth
Marriage/Relationship: 1838 - HOBART, Tasmania ( STEPHEN, ALFRED )

That's curious. The only other Eleanor listed is one born Tasmania 1839 the daughter of Edward Sam. So no mention in Tas. Archives of Eleanor's mother Eleanor. Too many William BEDFORDs to sort them out.

William Bedford (1781?-1852), Church of England clergyman, was reputed to have been a staymaker patronized by Mrs Fry, who interested him in prison work. He was made an ordinary at Newgate, and assisted in several parishes in the East End of London. In August 1821 he was ordained priest by the bishop of London and next June was appointed assistant military chaplain for Van Diemen's Land. He sailed in July with his wife Eleanor Martha, née Pickett (Pickard), two sons and one daughter, reaching Sydney in the Countess of Harcourt in December and Hobart Town in the Caledonia in January 1823.
