Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

That could explain why daughter Elizabeth ended up in Australia. Her place of birth is recorded as being Edwinstowe.

Edwinstowe is a village in the heart of Sherwood Forest. :D

Oh. Something does not add up. Her mother Rebecca also died in Australia so it seems William is the one who died not long after the marriage. So possibly not that William after all.

I have not found Rebecca and children in any shipping record yet.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

They had left England before 1871 census so it's only 1861 to search for Rebecca a widow and Elizabeth.

This might help:

3459/1880 HOGGART REBECCA ROBERT DIED NEWTOWN NEWTOWN

A variation of the name.

Dave
 
Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

As early as that. :eek: Suggests they may have left before 1861.
