Hi Dave,

NSW BMD has a Jack B Edwards b 1907 Waterloo to Harry & Clara and also
1905 Vera MCI at Glebe – Henry & Clara G – married Edward Perry 1932 Wallsend in SMH Sat 26 Nov 1932 PERRY – EDWARDS Oct 24 1932 at St Enochs Presbyterian Church Newtown by the Rev T Mathers, Vera M of Newtown eldest daughter of the late Mrs Edwards and Mr Henry Edwards of Botany to Edward youngest son of Mrs M J Perry and the late John Perry, Minmi – Vera McIntosh Perry died 1973 Newcastle – correct parents

Then Jack Brooks 1907 – he died 1919 - Redfern
1909 Angus A at Waterloo – Harry & Clara G – Angus Arthur Edwards died 25 March 1963 Qld – married a Doris Wills Squire, she died 22 Jan 1964 Qld parents Hilton Bell & Esther Wills Thompson
1911 Mary I at Waterloo – Henry & Clara G – died 1912 Redfern
1912 Stella J at Redfern – Henry & Clara G – Stella Jane m John Robert Anderson 1948 Annandale? – 1980 shows on ERs at Kensington North, Ryerson has death 29 Jan 1998 age 85 at Sacred Heart Hospice late of Kensington in Daily Telegraph (Sydney) 31 Jan 1998

So if Henry/Harry married Clara 1905 and she died 1919, reckon Henry/Harry remarried but so many on BMDs...
regards
Val

Hello Val,

Thank you very much.

All of that throws up a few questions.

Inscription for Jack Edwardes
Cemetery: Perthville Uniting Church
Family Name: Edwardes
Given Names: Jack
Birth Date: 22 Nov 1907
Death Date: 13 Oct 1985
Age:
Remarks: son/Harry & Clara G; h/Georgina Victoria (née Furner); father
Portion:
Row:

That would seem to point to this marriage for Jack's parents:

1716/1905 EDWARDS HENRY - NUGENT CLARA G - MARRICKVILLE

Yet we have:
Birth 30397/1907 EDWARDS JACK B - HARRY - CLARA G - WATERLOO
Death 6144/1919 EDWARDS JACK B - HENRY - CLARA G - REDFERN

So no birth reg for the Jack who married Georgina.

Sometime between 1943 and 1949 the name changes:

1943 NSW Electoral Roll - Macquarie - Rockley
EDWARDS Jack, Shire Hall, clerk
EDWARDS Georgina Victoria, Shire Hall, home duties

1949 & 1954 NSW Electoral Roll - Macquarie - Georges Plains
EDWARDES Jack, Bathurst road, Perthville, shire clerk
EDWARDES Georgina Victoria, Bathurst road, Perthville, home duties

Thanks gibbo.

So that means one born after 1913 (Hugh) but possibly no 2nd marriage.

No mention of a son Jack.

Something does not add up. :D

We have a birth and a death for a Jack B. We have a cemetery inscription listing parents of the Jack in my tree as being Harry & Clara G.

Do we have 2x Harry/Henry & Clara G. ??

Clara died 1919 same year as Jack B. So maybe Clara died in childbirth and the child survived and was named Jack after the one who died 1919.

We need to find out how old the Jack who died in 1985.

With the reg. numbers can you tell who died first?

6144/1919 EDWARDS JACK B HENRY CLARA G REDFERN

14181/1919 EDWARDS CLARA G JOHN ISABEL REDFERN

Inscription reads as this:

Birth Date: 22 Nov 1907

No service record for a Jack Edwards born any time in 1907.

They use a different sequence for births and deaths but both start January and increase as the year progresses. The difference is large enough to probably say Clara died several months later.

Neither in Ryerson.

We know Clara was 17 or 18 July.

Also curious not even in same section.

Presbyterian 4A 0003413 EDWARDS JACK B 05 Jun 1919


It's more than 2 + 2 = 5 now. :D

The only Edwards in 3B and the only Edwards in 4A.

I have that burial for the Jack with a 1907 dob who married:

9272/1937 EDWARDES JACK - FURNER GEORGINA VICTORIA - JUNEE

and I have them together in E/R as Edwards and Edwardes,

and working from the parents as listed we seem to find that the son Jack they had died in 1919.

So how can it fit?

The 1907 birth date is wrong and that had another son after Hugh? But why no mention of this 2nd Jack or mention of sister-in-law Georgina ??

The birth date is correct but the parents as listed are wrong ??

I thought I had the right birth reg until Val rightly pointed out Jack B died in 1919.

Georgina was born in 1914.

NSW Birth 3971/1914 FURNER GEORGINA V - EDWARD H - MARIA K - WAGGA WAGGA


------
The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 6 May 1939 p.16
BIRTHS
EDWARDES (nee Gene Furner).-April 8, at Bambridge private hospital Coolamon, to Mr. and Mrs. Jack Edwardes- a daughter (Georgina Victoria May).

Is it possible Jack was born 1907 in Victoria to a 2nd Henry/Harry & Clara G ??

EDWARDS Jack Obituary 18DEC1985 Publication at Bathurst Nursing Home, formerly of Wedderburn, Victoria, Wagga, Coolamon, Rockley and Perthville Western Advocate (Bathurst) 18DEC1985

1937 is the earliest I have him. He was a shire clerk.

1937 NSW Electoral Roll - Riverina - Coolamon
EDWARDS Jack, Shire Hall, Coolamon, clerk

1943 NSW Electoral Roll - Macquarie - Rockley
EDWARDS Jack, Shire Hall, clerk
EDWARDS Georgina Victoria, Shire Hall, home duties

He would not appear in E/R until 1928.

State: New South Wales

Shire Hall, Coolamon, clerk

E/R is no help for us.

Only clue left is Wedderburn, Vic.

Was going to try and find Isabella Nugents death as well as son John's death 1933

Thanks for looking Val.

It's possible that family NSW is not the right one if we in fact have 2x Heney/Gary & Clara G.

It's looking more as if the Jack who married Georgina was born 1907 in Victoria.
