Hello,

Frances WOODFORD b. 27 Feb 1845 Brighstone, Isle of Wight, Hampshire

I'd like a look up for Frances in 1851 please.

If found then in 1861.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Emeltee,

Thanks for looking.

Frances ended up in Australia but I at least expected she would still be there in 1851.

Regards,

Dave

Dave,
The only Frances I can find of the right age is born Middlesex with parents H! and Elizabeth. There is a Frances born Isle of Wight but she is born in 1871,

If this and the 1851 return are right there has been a mix up somewhere.

Elizabeth is sister to Frances, who his married in 1861

Hello Barbara,

Thanks for looking.

I have a problem now. :rolleyes: There are no WOODFORDs in my tree but there is the mother of one in my tree entered by way of a note. I now can't find that individual with that note in the database.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

Thank you very much.

It will take me some time to find the spot in my database where Frances fits in. :rolleyes:

Steve will never notice so I'm safe from the Wally corner this time.

Regards,

Dave

Births Mar 1845
WOODFORD Frances I Wight 8 218


Frances married a George HAMMOND date and place currently unknown.

I believe there is a tree on A.... that has a death for Frances in 1941.

A birth in South Australia:

Surname: HAMMOND
Given Names: Mary Ann
Date: 1876-03-08
***: F
Father: George HAMMOND
Mother: Frances WOODFORD
Birth Place/Residence: Penola
District Code: Gre
Symbol:
Book: 163
Page: 194
Cross Reference:

Mary Ann married my great grandfather's brother = great great uncle.

I found 7 trees all with the same information - no birth or death for George HAMMOND.
One other tree at least has spouse as 'Mr Hamilton' and John as the father of George.

The first child was born in 1868 in Penola so Frances had arrived before 1871 census.

A marriage in South Australia:

Groom: HAMMOND
Given names: George
Bride: WOODFORD
Given names: Frances
Date: 1873-05-17
Groom Age: 33
Status: S
Groom's Father: John HAMMOND
Bride Age: 28
Status: S
Bride's Father: Phillip WOODFORD
Place: Res of Mr Hammond [Penola]
District: Gre
Symbol:
Book/Page: 95/562
Cross Reference:

That confirms George's father is John and gives Phillip as the father of Frances.

Death in Victoria:

Surname: HAMMOND
Given Names: Frances
Father: Woodford Phillip
Mother: Jane DYER
Death Place: PRAHRAN
Age: 97
Age Code:
Year: 1941
Reg Number: 6109
Event: D

Gives us mother's name.

We have an age for George but no place of birth so far and no arrival yet in Australia for Frances.

No luck so far finding any WOODFORDs in shipping records who fit this family.

One tree has a son born in New Zealand in 1852. I can't find that birth on NZ BMD. The next birth was on board the vessel about 1853 (vessel not named) to Australia. The next birth in Victoria. No mention of when they left England or if Frances was with them.
