Roman Catholic Baptisms Solemnized in the Parish of West Maitland in the County of Northumberland in the Year 1865
No. - When Baptised: 24th September 1865 When Born: 6th Sepr. 1865 Henry - Matthew Speke & Katharin(e/a) Kopp Abode: Aberglasslyn Quality or Profession: - Sponsors: Henry Hossier, Maria Neckline ? By whom the Ceremony was performed: P. Healy


The Matthew who died in 1934 is listed as 'senior' so it seems we have three generations of Matthew.

We need some marriages and some more deaths and death/funeral notices.

Thanks Rupert.

Can't see an arrival on NSW Assisted index.

Australia, New South Wales, Index to Bounty Immigrants, 1828-1842
No records found for Name: speke

No Speke marriages in NSW index.

No marriage for a Matthew Peak in NSW index to 1900.

Seems the name was changed to Peak soon after arrival.

So which one is the father of Henry?

Thanks Val.

That's sorted. The 1865 baptism is rather odd then with Speke and Katharina.

Bap V18653929 121B/1865 SPEKE HENRY MATTHEW KATHARINA

It's the right one given the abode. Articles in Trove re a stolen horse.
