Thanks gibbo. :)

You are the convict expert. :2fun:

The 'born England' would be wrong if this is the convict. Age is way out too.

NSW Death 2998/1857 BOODLE ROBERT AGE 35 YEARS DIED IPSWICH IPSWICH

Qld. Death 1857/C0314 Robert Boodle - - ** born England aged 35 years

Going through all the variations of the name I can't find another death.

I also didn't find him in 1841 census.


Family in my tree of same name here:

I posted these on your other thread as well.

William Bodel died 21.7.1914 aged 75
David Bodle died 12.1.1870 aged 27
Ann Jane Bodle died 2.4.1882 aged 62
Robert Bodle died 15.1.1885 aged 72
 
Trying to force one into my tree. :2fun:

I'm sure now the convict is not this Robert:

NSW Birth 4842/1856 BOODLE ELIZABETH - ROBERT - ANN - GOULBURN

That's the connection to my tree.

Just wanted to try and trace the convict and find his death as proof it's a different Robert.
 
Is that a way of saying "I give up - this is too hard." :2fun:

I guess it is since there is no death that fits.
 
You still looking for this fella Dave? :confused:

Is this birth you posted before the family your looking for?
NSW Birth 4842/1856 BOODLE ELIZABETH - ROBERT - ANN - GOULBURN
 
Yes, gibbo, that 1856 birth is the connection to my tree. I think the Irish convict is not the same Robert so in a way the case is closed. I was hoping to find a death for the convict to be really sure there are 2x Robert. The name can be any of about 6 variations. It's not as if we had 2 variations and the two families stuck to one spelling. It's not like that. :rolleyes:
 
Ok. :)

I've given myself more work. :biggrin: Brought 8 more plants for the garden over the past two days.
 
:2fun:

If I squeeze them into a dozen photos then it will be 6 new plants per photo. :eek:

Or one photo from the top of the 30m gum tree. :D
