Hello Anne,

Thanks. That's a good way to get the date of death when it's not in Ryerson or a death notice.

I had those two marriages for Henry but I don't know where he fits in or if 'John J' is correct.

Death 3908/1921 CHANNON HENRY W - JOHN J - - BOOROWA

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wednesday 23 February 1921
DEATHS
CHANNON.-February 18, 1921, at Boorowa District Hospital, Henry William Channon, aged 89 years. Interred at Frogmore.

I had the probate notice:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 19 February 1898
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW SOUTH WALES.-Probate Jurisdiction.-In the Will of JEAN (or JANE) VICTORIA CHANNON, late of Frogmore, in the colony of New South Wales, Married Woman, deceased.-Applcation will be made after fourteen days from the publicition hereof that Probate of the last Will of the abovenamed deceased may be granted to HENRY CHANNON, the Executor named in the said Will. WHITE and WOLSTENHOLME, Proctors for Applicant, 121 Pitt street, Sydney.


The date of birth for Thomas is not on the baptism record as it is recorded on FS.

Do you know if Thomas married?

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Henry W's age at his death puts him being born about 1831-1832. He is between James Robert Channon (1830-1870) and John Francis (1833-). Not suggesting he is a brother but a cousin maybe. The old writing is very hard to decipher and J's, F's and even I's can sometimes be indecipherable. Frances Hamilton Baker's Baptism/Birth record has been transcribed as Frances A on NSW BDM. I guess without purchasing the certificate it's anyone's guess!

I have made an assumption (until I get cracking on him & the extended family) that he was unmarried at the time of his death. But will investigate after I have finished the main line through Frances Hamilton Baker and Thomas Channon.

I was given the birth info on Thomas from a great-granddaughter of Thomas & Frances, who got it from her cousin who is a Mormon "reserving his place" by doing his family tree. Unfortunately she died suddenly at 71 and I have no contact with her cousin. Because he would have free access to the IGI I assumed it was a baptismal record.

Cheers
Anne
Excuse my ignorance but what is "FS" please?

OOPS!!

I have made an assumption (until I get cracking on him & the extended family) that he (Thomas 1835-1891) was unmarried at the time of his death. But will investigate after I have finished the main line through Frances Hamilton Baker and Thomas Channon.

Hi Dave,
I knew I was going to kick myself for asking about FS. Thanks for being so kind.
You are right about the "A" and it definitely being Hamilton. Frances' daughter Elizabeth Ellen (de-facto with Roderick Henry Thomas Dhu) called her first daughter Affiled Elizabeth Hamilton Dhu. I have yet to discover where the "Hamilton" came from.
Thanks again, as there is no proof yet I will discard the date of birth for Thomas 1835.

Hi Dave,
I have Henry William Channons marriage certificate but as usual it is blank except for the Church details, die not even give Henry and Jean Victoria Lang's ages. He is a miner and she is a teacher. The only way to get the rest of the details would be to contact St Paul's Anglican Church Adelong. His death certificate might give more info but we all know how reliable they are!
Regards
Anne

Hello Anne,

Thanks for those details.

Do you think the actual register will have more details?

Adelong is in the Canberra/Goulburn Diocese and those records are on film at the Mitchell Library.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave,
Initially the churches were only required to send a certain amount of information to the Registrar General. It is my experience that the churches held all the details that were given and many only passed on what was required. My great grandparents marriage certificate from BDM held only basic information, but when I went to Singleton and saw the actual register it was all there. So I think it is worth a shot. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Hello Anne,

Yes, that would make sense of the records I've seen on film of the entries marked afterwards by the Registrar General with the current on-line reg no. They are copies of entries from the original register because a page full is written in the same hand even though different ministers were involved.

Regards,

Dave

James is buried in Rookwood cemetery .Located about 15 miles west of Sydney.There is a section surrounded by a brick circle where victims of suicide are buried.This area is unconsecrated ground.The circle is meant to confine these lost souls from wandering.His grave has a small shrub planted on it.
