Thanks dave,

Bit slack of me not adding a bit from the marriage certificate saying Edward was an engineer.

Wm. 7 ???

Regards,

Dave

William could have been a brother......

The only Edward Gosnell I can see of the right age and area after 1841 is married to an Eliza J (trans as Elward, born Lancashire, with a 5 year old son Edward. These are on later census, and there is a probate for Edward senior with Edward jun as exec. died 4.9.1873 at 18 St Marks Rd, Canonbury, Islington.

Could it be Sophia/Sophina and Edward 1841 died or Edward senior bigamously married Eliza (Eliza Jane Hamer in Jun 1845 at Bury Lancs)

Hello dave,

gender: Female
baptism/christening date: 28 May 1843
baptism/christening place: Battersea, Surrey, England
birth date:
birthplace:
death date:
name note:

mother's birthplace:
mother's age:
indexing project (batch) number: C00950-9
system origin: England-EASy
source film number: 1041672
reference number: item 2 p 207


name: Rebecca Harriet Gosnell
gender: Female
baptism/christening date: 30 Mar 1845
baptism/christening place: Battersea, Surrey, England
birth date:

Deaths in Australia:

GOSNELL Edward James Death notice 01OCT1893 Death 79 late of Marrickville, formerly of Darlington SMH 02OCT1893

That means born around 1814 but this one fits except for middle name:

NSW State Records is down so I can't check shipping records.

The 'Darlington' bit does not help because there is one in Sydney, Western Australia, South Australia and Co Durham.

Looks like the family ended up in NSW:

Marriage 325/1868 TURNER JOHN - GOSNELL CATHERINE - SYDNEY

Death 8785/1926 TURNER CATHERINE A - EDWARD - SOPHIA - MANLY

Can't find a marriage or death in NSW for Rebecca.

Deaths Mar 1846
GOSNELL Rebecca Harriet Wandsworth 4 405

I have no idea what X92 is. It probably means I can't look this one up on film at the library. Fiche and Reel 401 are at State Records not State Library so they are not easy to get at.

Washington Irving 1855 Sydney and/or Newcastle and family Fiche 839; Reel 401, [X92]
GOSNELL Edward 39
GOSNELL Sophia 38
GOSNELL William 13
GOSNELL Catherine 12
GOSNELL James 8
GOSNELL Elizabeth 6
GOSNELL Mary 3
GOSNELL Edward inft

Arrived 11 April 1855

The on-line image is very strange. It lists only Edward senior and a column with £49/10/0
