Civil Parish: Stoke Damerel

Jane Channon Wife Mar 26 ? Seamstress Devonport Devonshire ?
Elizabeth Channon Dau 14 Seamstress Devonport Devonshire
John Channon Jr Son 10 Scholar Devonport Devonshire
Helen Channon Dau 0 Devonport Devonshire

So far I can't find John P's father John in 1861.


The records include:
Name and number of district
Name of householder
Total number of persons in schedule
Number of Chinese or Aboriginal people included

So J unlikely to be Jean/Jane.

1898 NSW County Trades Register
CHANNON James, Wyalong, Quartz Crushing Battery

1875 NSW Post Office Directory
CHANNON John, miner, Middle Adelong

Don't know which of those two or some other J would have been in Frogmore in 1891.

Thanks Geoff.

Yes, H = Henry in Frogmore in 1891 but don't know if J= James or John.

Jane Victoria Lag Channon - Lag = Lang

Jean Victoria b. 4 Jun 1838 c. 14 Jul 1838 Barony, Lanark
Archibald Graham LANG & Jean ROBB
Batch: C119666

J can't be a son of Henry & Jean - not old enough in 1891.

No info on the 1879 marriage for Henry William re age or parents or pob so still can't connect him.
