Birth Reg# 944 18 Nov 1856 VICKERS Ellen Jane - Joshua - SIME Helen RGD 33 Launceston

Joshua was a convict. I have no other info on Helen apart from:

Marriage #617 1 Sep 1856 VICKERS Joshua - SIM Helen - Launceston RGD 37 1856

Looking for info on Helen.

Thanks,

Dave

Joshua Vickers was ordered to pay into the police 15s per week, to maintain his wife Helen Vickers.
 
Thanks gibbo.

I have Joshua but nothing else on Helen. I can't find a tree.

Another daughter in 1862.

Quite possibly, difficult to find her in Scotland with such little info, quite a few b. around that time... :rolleyes:
 
A rethink, she was only 18y when she married, (15/16y) hmmm... a back burner job possibly. :rolleyes:

Nah.. she arrived 1855 aged 17y.


Probably depend on who the informant of death was also, they may not have known her correct age. I cant find a death notice that might help neither:rolleyes:
