No marriage in index in Qld. or Vic. or South Aust. or West Aust. for John.

No death in SA or WA index for John.

No hit in RootsWeb.

John probably died before Frances.

No Cowdrill in Assisted to NSW passenger list.

Can't find a birth reg for Solomon in GRO or FreeBMD.

Or daughter Frances.


So far can't find the family or daughter Frances in 1861.

Found them in 1861 transcribed as Bailey although the image definitely says Briley

RG9/2128/F84/p49
Camden Street, Birmingham
Edward Briley 33 Dipper Birmingham
Frances Briley wife 48 Stonall
Solomon Briley son 21 Machinist Birmingham
Emma Briley dau 18 Birmingham
Anne Briley dau 13 Birmingham
Frances Briley dau 10 Birmingham

Edward's age transcribed as 33 but could be 53 - very difficult to read as overwritten, perhaps in an attempt to correct an error.

So far I can't find any Cowdrill children born 1871 - 1881 on GRO.

Nor can I find William & Frances in 1881 census.

Joseph Cowdrill
Spouse's Name Sarah Key
Event Date 5 Jul 1841
Event Place St Thomas Birmingham, Warwickshire
Batch: M041171


Either the right marriage and 1852 birth for William and an error with Ester as his mother on death reg or the wrong birth and marriage.

I can't find Joseph, Sarah and William in 1861 or 1871.
