Dave,

These are my direct line, I have been researching Gatfield for 40 years, they are not related to your female Margaret Daphne GATFIELD, I don't have all my records in front of me as I was affected by the Feb. Floods, but in 1857 George ? Gatfield and his wife Jane migrated from London to Brisbane. they had a large family. Some went to Toowoomba and the darling downs, others to Gympie gold rush, etc. Jane's maiden name was STANNIFORD. And that name has been carried on in the many branches of the family, usually as a 2nd Given name.

All the research you have done on Gatfield, Davies, Manning, Sharp, Kirkwood, Boyd, McMillian, Etc are from my direct line. Our family settled in Blackbutt c1911, timber was their line, hence why George died in Michigan chasing the lumber industry with Welsh wife Eva, then his son worked in the forestry in Blackbutt/Benarkin and my father in a sawmill.

PS I worked in PMG/Telecom/Telstra, but my son is now a builder!
Regards,
Garry

Thanks Garry.

So, Margaret Daphne GATFIELD is not connected. Records show her father to be George so I'm therefore looking for a George other than George Cylde.

I know there are George Gatfields in the Stanford/Gatfield line in Qld.
From memory, I think you should start by checking the marriage of Jane Stanford and Charles? Gatfield in London
c1865? I think they had some children in London before departing for Brisbane in 1867?

My dates and given names may be a bit hazy, as I haven't researched this line for over 30yrs.
I had to do that to prove we had no connection or otherwise to my line, when I first started serious research.

My Gatfield line has no loose ends in Australia, as I know all my relatives, thats why I was surprised you
were researching my line.

PS All you research agrees with mine, but sorry it was wasted!
Regards,
Garry

PS There may have been a George Gatfield from the Stanford line that was a Solicitor in Qld.
There are no Margaret Daphnes in my proven line!

Thanks Val.

I agree with all of that but the sticking point is a 10 year gap between births of Cora and Margaret.

The only hit in Trove for "margaret gatfield" is the one for Cora's wedding.

Probably have to wait for Margaret's birth in the index.
