I'm puzzled by these two

I don't know which is right but I won't be ordering a copy anyway.

My connection is to Robert's son C.T. and his marriage to Jane Sands, a sibling of one in my direct line.

Dave
 
Esther's middle name:

According to the Cheshire Parish Register Database Stephen Morris married Mary Wilkinson at Great Budworth on 31/12/1792. The witnesses were John Wilkinson and John Moores.


The youngest of Esther's children born in Vic. No sign after that of spouse David Williams.

A little niggling though, 99% sure, but 1% doubt :rolleyes:

With the other marriage info fitting well, it looks like a simple error in the BMD.

Marriage has both junior and senior as uphosterers so not much doubt. And middle name Wilkinson passed down.

I can't find the 1881 marriage in TROVE.

The index for the marriage looking up David might have his pob. Looking up Esther it has Manchester.

TROVE has 169 hits for 1890 for 'williams' AND 'david' for Family Notices.

Bendigo Advertiser (Vic. : 1855 - 1918 ) - Tuesday 12 August 1890 p.2
Esther Williams, the fourth patient attacked
with diphtheria in the Abert Park family,
died this morning in the Melbourne hospital.
No cause can be assigned for the outbreak.

Died 12th and buried 14th.
 
I have 4:

David Reginald 1882
Emma Rubina 1884
Herbert 1886
Ettie 1887

Ettie must be Esther aged 2 in the article. Or I'm missing a birth.

Emma aged 6 was the first.

Wife of a 'commission agent' - so we have a bit of info.

I'm missing Emma's death - aged abt 6.

Mrs Abbott survived it. She died in 1931.

David Jonathan Williams husband of Caroline - late of Gray Bros. 64th year

22 Victoria avenue.

Edward Southern son-in-law.

That's about 20 years too old.

Yeah, with that name there are going to be bad hits, only got the odd address to go on. Do we know Mrs Abbott's first name?

Son Herbert should be traced as he might provide a clue re his father David.

I've searched TROVE using 'williams' AND 'david' AND 'commission agent' without success.
 
I'm missing Emma's death - aged abt 6.
