Dunno Geoff.

Just one on a large list of baptisms, marriages and burials collected over a nine month period to look up at a library when permitted to use the film scanner again.

I don't cross-reference everything. Most can be found by searching this site if I can't find the surname in my tree index.

I googled 'Braithwaite Poole' and got lots of hits but nothing has helped so far.

Jane Elizabeth, Emily Jane, Caroline Amelia, Emma Ferguson.

I've checked for marriages and nothing found that fits.

Thanks Geoff.

This one for gibbo to solve. :) Who is Aunt Poole?

Hi all,
off a Tree,
John Davidson, young Englishman, went to Gympie where there was a gold mining rush. Uncle Tom Roper was also there. Tom’s wife Carrie was very ill and he sent word to Aunt Poole asking her to go up and help. Aunt was terrified at the prospect of travelling all night on a coach, but Elizabeth Alice, a brave girl of 18 eagerly offered to go. Elizabeth met John Davidson at Gympie. John was older but a real gallant. Alice was very pretty. They became engaged but Tom Curply had his doubts about the unknown Englishman.
They married eventually in Stanthorpe

He died 1911 Bundaberg age 70 - Trove has info but being transcribed.

Look for arrivals into Qld.
regards
Val
Dave
