Birth 3878/1860 HAMILTON ELIZABETH A - JOHN - ISABELLA - ST GEORGE

Marriage 2996/1883 STIMSON GEORGE - HAMILTON ELIZABETH A - REDFERN

Death 6606/1932 STIMSON ELIZABETH A - WILLIAM J - ISOBEL - LIVERPOOL

George and Arthur are brothers so did they marry sisters?

There is no Florence and no Elizabeth A in that tree so we have two families. One in Kiama area and one in St George area of NSW.

Looks as though we have a John HAMILTON who married an Isabella and a William John (sometimes just John or just William) who married an Isabella. :confused: So where is this other marriage?

Sibling
3794/1862 HAMILTON WILLIAM J - WILLIAM - ISABELLA - ST GEORGE

So we have a birth in 1860 and 1862 and need one for about 1868 but it's not in NSW?

Can't see it in Qld., NSW or Vic.

Hi Dave

One of the trees has Florence b. 1869:
1454/1869 HAMILTON FLORENCE L - JOHN - EMMA - SYDNEY

The only others for 1865 - 1875:
3492/1870 HAMILTON FLORENCE S E - No father - Mother SARAH - GLEBE
7161/1870 HAMILTON FLORENCE V - WILLIAM - ELIZABETH - BINALONG

Hello Geoff,

Thanks for looking.

If Florence L born 1869 was the right one then either her birth or her death reg has an error because parents don't match.

Also there is nothing in her marriage reg or death reg or death notice or burial record or Electoral Rolls or the birth reg or death reg for her 8 children that indicates my Florence had any middle name.


I'm still wondering if 2 brothers married sisters.

Regards,

Dave
 
Have you got Arthur Stimson's parents as:
William Stimson b. 1828 England - d. 1902 Sydney, NSW. Arrival 1849
Elizabeth Pammenter b. 1831 Swaffham, Camb. England - d. 1904 Sydney

I haven't tried to validate these yet.

Geoff
 
It is looking like 2 brothers married 2 sisters.

In the same family, Arthur has a brother, George Stimson (see also your earlier post) marrying an Elizabeth Hamilton (1883).

There was also a George b. 1855 - d. 1856. the George above was b. 1857.

I've rechecked the death and funeral notices for George and Arthur and they don't mention the brother or sister-in-law. Limited to spouse, children and grandchildren.

Also, brother Henry married Eva FURNER and sister Eliza Ann married Walter Charles FURNER - the Furners are siblings.
 
Yeah, I suspect those trees, whilst 2 especially are fairly well sourced, may have lost their way a little.

The Hamilton girls may well be from 2 separate families. Indeed, whilst the trees have Florence's "birth details" they don't actually give them a proper entry in the tree :confused:

Also, interesting that none of them give Arthur and Florence's children, apart from 1 tree and gives:
Walter Stimson, b. 1896 NSW. On checking...
34866/1896 STIMSON - WALTER E - ARTHUR - FLORENCE - SMITHFIELD

Walter Eric was the 4th of 8 as far as I can tell.


Marriage 1538/1866 HAMILTON JOHN - McCAUGHEY ISABELLA - BERRIMA

10486/1867 HAMILTON SOPHIA M - JOHN - ISABELLA - KIAMA
10702/1868 HAMILTON SOPHIA M - JOHN - ISABELLA - KIAMA
11382/1870 HAMILTON JAMES WILLIAM - JOHN - ISABELLA - KIAMA
11595/1872 HAMILTON JOHN ROBERT - JOHN - ISABEL - KIAMA

I should check that family to see if all records have father as John and that some don't have William J. or William John.

If Florence does not fit in that family - parents are still John & Isabel (variations) and no marriage yet found.

Elizabeth Ann's father is either John or William John and Mother = Isabel (variations) and no marriage yet found.

So we are in need of two more marriages.

I've checked the trees on the Hamilton side now and irrespective of the Isabel and John/William variants, there are no marriages to suit, apart from those that have already been established.

However...
Births on BMD:
3878/1860 HAMILTON ELIZABETH A - JOHN - ISABELLA - ST GEORGE 15991/1869 HAMILTON ELIZABETH A - WILLIAM - JEMIMA - PARRAMATTA
