Looking at other births BURTON / MULLARD on GRO

Emily Elizabeth 1880 Birmingham
Robert Samuel 1881 Kings Norton
Caroline Mary 1883 Malling

If these are all to your couple then they had moved nearer the coast by 1883.... Narrows it down a couple of years!

WW1 Record available for Robert Samuel gives NOK as brother

Caroline Mary 1883 Malling
Caroline Mary died in 1885 in South Australia so that narrows years of arrival down even more. Also found Charles in a newspaper article dated Nov 1885. So between 1883 and 1885 for arrival.

SA death index
1885 146/333 BURTON Caroline Mary Charles Frederick BURTON (F) District Daly

I did notice that gibbo.

I'll still check PROV. No Burton 1884 Assisted or Unassisted to Vic.


Up to 1851 is ok for SA but after that it's a bit harder.

Thanks gibbo.

Number of children?

Three newspapers have been indexed for names that appear in passenger lists of ships
arriving in S.A. from overseas for the years 1846-1887. · ·
Newspaper index gives: 1.
2.
3.
Name of newspaper (abbreviation)
Year (last 2 figures only)
Number of list in key.
e.g. R48/19 - Register, 1848, nineteenth list.
The key is necessary to find the exact date the passenger list was published; and the name
of the vessel.


R = Register

84 = 1884

139 = Oct 22 Glen Osmond

We're sorry... Trove search is temporarily unavailable

Or with him been around 20 years older than Emily had he been married previously and had kids, hence so many kids on the shipping list?

DEATH OF DR. BURTON.
The announcement of the death of Dr. Burton on Tuesday morning last came as a shock to most residents of Gilgandra. Although it was known that he had been ailing for some time, it was not thought to be of a very serious nature. He repeatedly refused to allow his sons to call in other medical men, although he knew he was suffering from influenza and pneumonia ; consequently it became necessary that a magisterial inquiry should be held, which took place on Tuesday afternoon before Mr. GilesShaw. Evidence was given by Robert and Theodore Burton (sons of deceased) M. Morris and Dr. Giommi (Government Medical Officer), the latter made a post mortem examination of the body, and atated that, in his opinion, death took place from an affection of the heart accelerated by pneumonia, and a verdict to that effect was accordingly returned. Dr. Burton, who was 72 years of age, was a native of Dublin, Ireland, and was a son of a Church of England clergyman. The late doctor had in the early days travelled extensively throughout the colonies, having been on most of the important goldfields ; but for the last ten years had resided and practised his profession in Gilgandra. In the fifties, he, like many others, were seized with the gold fever and, running away from college, came to Australia with the impression that gold could be shoveled up. However, this impression was soon dispelled, and, after spending several years on the Ballarat and other fields, he returned to England where he took his degrees for a doctor. Having a liking for the colonies he returned, and for some years practised as a doctor in various parts of Australia. About 1880 he visited England and while there was married, his wife predeceasing him by some years. He leaves one daughter and three sons (the youngest of whom is 15 years of age) to mourn his loss. etc

That's it thanks gibbo. It's another one well off a main line.

I had a different short obituary so good to get the longer one.

Also, thank you for pointing me to SA Archives - a site I'd not used before.
