Hello,

Marriage V1848134 84/1848 SALMON BENJAMIN G - REILLY ANN IA= Wesleyan Methodist Sydney

Benjamin Grist Salmon Bachelor of Sydney
Ann Riley Spinster of Sydney
Married in Princes St Chapel Sydney by License with consent of Friends
21 Jun 1848 By me Nath. Turner
Witnesses: Rachael Leering ?, Charlotte Riley (her x mark)

I'm assuming Charlotte is a sister. Parents should be Hugh & Susan.

Family from Co Cavan, Ireland. I don't know yet if Hugh and Susan also came to Australia.

SALMON Anne Death notice 11SEP1902 Death 75 late of Sydney SMH 12SEP1902

So Anne was born abt 1827 in Ireland. I don't have a death for Charlotte yet.

The girls were in the care of William Richardson and his wife on the ship.
Ann was 16 but here's Charlotte's travel doc.

This is REALLY strange :confused: It should be Charlotte not Annie:confused:

1870
Name: Augustus Olbrecht
Birth Year (Estimated): 1815
Age : 55y
Birthplace: Prussia
California, United States
Augustus Olbrecht 55y Prussia
Annie Olbrecht F 55y Ireland
Grace Olbrecht F 25y Australia
Cathrain Taylor F 25y Ireland
 
Thanks gibbo.

Not just the name but the age is out too going by age for Charlotte on shipping record.

It has to be sister Charlotte - married in same Wesleyan church by the same minister. I'll look that one up next week and check the witnesses.
 
Can only see these two birth reg withiout checking for other spellings:

V1849332 58/1849 OLBRECHT EBENEZER C A - AUGUSTUS - CHARLOTTE
V1848332 68/1848 OLBRECHT EBENEZER C A - AUGUSTUS - CHARLOTTE
 
I wonder if the Ebenezer is actually Master Augustus on the passenger departures.
I cant find a reg. for Grace. Maybe if she was only a new born when they left they may not have reg. her.

If the above Grace was 25 in 1870 that would make her birth around 1845, 3 years before parents marriage :confused: Maybe their ages were rounded off and that is why they are out of whack. I dont have full access to the census to see what the relationship was amongst them.
 
Yes, possibly rounded but seems rounded up not down like the 1841 English census.


At least shipping record confirms Co Cavan and parents Hugh and Susan. I looked previously and didn't find a baptism for Anne or Charlotte or a marriage for Hugh & Susan in Ireland.
