Here's a possibility in Berkshire:-

Piece: 11 Book/Folio: 14/5 Page: 4
Registration District: Cookham
Civil Parish: White Waltham:
Address: Hollow Way, White Waltham County: Berkshire
STREET, Robert 27 1814 Berkshire
STREET, Harriet 26 1815
SHOREY, Elizabeth 16 1825 Berkshire

Perhaps she was in Berkshire in 1841.

Thanks Geoff. I was working off the list of convictions I posted in #1 but now seems Berkshire more likely in 1841.

Brothers Henry and John. Sisters Mary, Ester/Hester and Catherine/Caroline whatever that one is.

Don't think any others were transported.

Interesting entry...

I can't see any siblings for Elizabeth from the trees, there is however, an Israel Shurry & Martha Perry in Sutton Courtenay, Berks with offspring: Henry, Mercy and Elizabeth..

Name: James Shurley
Birth: in England, United Kingdom
Death: 1850 in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England

Marriage Martha Unk
Children
Elizabeth Shurey b: abt 1816 in Hurley, England
Harriett Shurey


Marriage 1 George Collins b: 20 Aug 1815 in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England
Married: Church of Scotland 27 Oct 1845 in Bothwell, Tasmania
The only tree I've found that lists both sisters and parents with Martha's maiden name unknown. Another tree has James born 1780. I can't find a marriage to Martha yet.

I still think those two baptisms in Hurley are siblings. Probably died before 1841 or 1843 to not be listed on either Harriet's or Elizabeth's record. They are on the same page of the Tasmanian Archives convict records.


Yes, no tree that lists James & Martha with children - I don't know in what order:

John
Henry
Harriet
Elizabeth
Mary
Catherine/Caroline whatever
Ester/Hester

Thanks Woody. ;)

That looks good at first glance. Age for Harriet does not really fit. Age at conviction gives 1823 and age at death gives 1827.

Richard Shury
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
birth: 06 Dec 1821
christening: 09 Dec 1821 HURLEY, BERKSHIRE, ENGLAND
parents: James Shury, Martha

Ann Shury
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
birth: 02 Jul 1823
christening: 27 Jul 1823 HURLEY, BERKSHIRE, ENGLAND
parents: James Shury, Martha

Neither of those in 1841.

Can't see any other baptisms.

My easy queries were done 6 years ago. :2fun:


I can't see a marriage for a James to a Martha that looks like fitting anything we have in convict records or trees or 1841 census or any more likely baptisms.
