Hi im trying to track down my ggg grandmother Jane Johnson b. around 1814 in kensington london.

She married William/George lewis and had numerous kids with him before arriving in south australia minus her husband.

She died in 1899 in tarnagulla victoria.

Her obituary says she had a 3rd husband (found 1 - lewis and #3 edwin grimsdale), looking for 2. Marraige certificate for one of her sons says Ellerton or Etherton.

Trying to see who this guy is and whether she had kids with him

As far as i know lewis was her 1st husband.

She married Grimsdale under the name lewis.

Have checked South Australia & vic for a marraige to Ellerton/Etherton under lewis, johnson and eyres (which appears in another document), without success

Nathaniel,

I reckon the members have found them for you :

Summary of everything you will have now...

County-Surrey :Country England
Father : Richard JOHNSON
Mother : Mary SMITH

Yvonne gave the parents names as: Richard Johnson & Sarah Smith ( Looks good ) Nathaniel

Isaac HARE : Jane JOHNSON : 09 Aug 1830
Marriage place-London

Isaac HARE :Age at death-30 :Birth year-1805 :Burial date-19 Apr 1835

( If Yvonne is correct with the children above you have a ? mark for Richard Lewis born 1833 and possibly Jane Lewis / should they be Hare's?)

Edwin GRIMSDALE was supposed to have been born

Why didn't Jane bring Isaac Hare out ? did he die before she emigrated

Possible father working as a District Constable

Notes

District Constables were special constables appointed by South Australian District Councils and sworn in for a 12 month term to maintain the law and protect life and property in rural districts where there were insufficient officers of the Police Force. In 1861 the Municipal Corporations Act authorized District Constables in city districts. District Constables were not members of the Police Force.
