A side query we have looked at before.

Can't find a birth notice in Trove

Death 47589/1974 FISHER MARGARET RACHAEL - CHARLES THOMAS - EVELYN GRACE * 11 Mar

Marriage not found, death not found, in fact nothing else found for Grace Evelyn/Evelyn Grace.

Thanks Geoff.

Re 'daughter' Sophia M aged 8 in 1857, I can only find the birth reg for one who is with a different family in 1851??


??
Marriage 2226/1877 EVANS HENRY BENJAMIN S - DAY SOPHIA JANE - BEGA

That Sophia is ruled out.

Death EVANS SOPHIA J 12463/1928 MARK MARY J - BEGA

No death in NSW as Day for Sophia M.

The mmn clearly fits the other family with older children.

No 'dv' so Sophia M arrived in NSW.

Not with George and Sophia in 1851.

Head of the other family is also George so not a brother.

27x deaths in NSW for a Sophia with parents George & Sophia.

No birth reg for a Sophia Ellis/Eyles. Anyway age indicates she was born after 1847.

Can't find a marriage or death in Vic. or Qld.

Is this mother or 'daughter' ??

DAY SOPHIA M 4942/1894 UNKNOWN UNKNOWN - EDEN

The only death in NSW index for a Sophia Day.

Thought i would have a look at this one.

I cant find a thing on Grace Evelyn, she just disappears. Seems that Charles remarried in 1902. Margaret's marriage notice doesnt help none neither.

The Twofold Bay Magnet : and South Coast and Southern Monaro Advertiser (NSW : 1908 - 1919)
Mon 24 Dec 1917
Alexander Joseph Fisher and Miss Margaret Rachael Gandon were married at the Eden Catholic Church on Monday last. Rev W Stevens -performing the ceremony. The bride who was becomingly attired for the occasion, was given away by her father . Mr Charles Gandon. Miss F Gandon, sister of the bride-was bridesmaid. and Mr Fred White junr bestman. The wedding breakfast was.partaken of by the friends and relatives at the residence of the bridegroom's' mother. We wish the young couple a happy and successful voyage, on the sea of matrimony.

If she died, there may have been an inquest, that has been known to hold up registration and occasionally be missed off the index :rolleyes:

Thanks gibbo.

I didn't have that wedding notice.

Thanks Geoff.

No sign of Sophia junior in Australia but shipping image is clear enough.

I've not looked for Emma yet.

No death that fits to 1857 in Herts.
