No marriage in the index for Thomas to Ann.

No earlier death in index for Ann.

??
Thomas SNELL 'John' 1829 Certificate of Freedom 25 Aug 1835 [4/4329; Reel 995]

No Application to Marry but that on line list is incomplete.

1844 is the earliest baptism in the index.

Mary A, Juliana, Elizabeth. Only 3 not 5.

Thanks gibbo.

Mary A 1844 is the first in the index and eldest there.

SNELL MARY A 2691/1844 V18442691 28 THOMAS ANN

That means some baptisms are missing from the index.

So, was he a convict?

No death in the index for Ann that fits.

A Mrs Ann Snell in Maitland in 1840s and early 1850s.

Going by the orphan book records Margaret was 3 in 1856 so born around 1853 or maybe 1852 as i found this birth in 1853

SNELL ELIZABETH 4281/1853 V18534281 40 THOMAS -- ANN

So Ann would have been alive around then, died between 1853 and 1856. I cant find a death for her yet the kids are noted as Orphans.

Thanks gibbo.

When the library reopens I'll look up the baptisms. Elizabeth in the index but that might be an error ?? But don't know how you read Elizabeth for Margaret.

There still seems to be some missing.

Dungod is not Maitland but don't know when they arrived in Dungog. Ann Snell in Maitland in and out of court.

Harriet SNELL 9 yrs Protestant Orphan School (Female) Admissions book 09/08/1856
Could be totally wrong but well worth checking, i have to duck out again for half hour so will have another look when i get back but for now this is what i have found.

Harriet going by age as above on the orphan records would have been born around 1847/1848. The is a newspaper article with a Harriet Snell in trouble for leaving her baby unattended in 1864 aged 16 so birth around 1847/1848 the article states she was born in Victoria.

So far can't find Thomas on the Transportation database.

Qld State Library seem to have changed the easy to use link they once had to that database.

Thanks Val.

One day I'll be able to go to the library and get an image of the baptisms.

The 1843 marriage is not in the index so don't know the source of that. Death cert ?

The death for Ann is not in the index so don't know the source of that.
