Thanks Geoff.

Birth 33140/1890 COLEMAN ETHEL M - JOHN HARRIETT A - SUNNY CORNER

Marriage 8113/1912 SMITH JAMES W H - COLEMAN ETHEL M - WOOLLAHRA * Not CofE PR *

1935 NSW Electoral Roll - East Sydney - Surry Hills
SMITH James William Henry, 61 Phelps street, labourer
SMITH Ethel May, 61 Phelps street, home duties

Different address.

A birth in 1866 or 1867 presents a problem. Charles and Margaret married in 1872.

If mother = Margaret is correct then either John was born before his parents married or his father Charles married twice, both to a Margaret. Charles born abt 1836 but baptism not found so could have married before the 1872 one.

No birth reg in NSW 1865 - 1868 for a John Coleman.

Death 7390/1885 COLEMAN CHARLES AGE 49 YEARS DIED SUNNY CORNER BATHURST * 16 Dec

Thanks Ellie.

Yes, that's the marriage. No birth reg in the index though so don't know where date and place came from - passed down ? family bible ? not in any details that have been provided to me by a descendant.

I'm sure I know his father but not sure of his mother. Can't find a previous marriage for Charles that fits location. So with John born 1866 Margaret may or may not be his mother.

Marriage 1 Apr 1872

Marriage at Bathurst.

I don't have a copy and don't know if it is CofE or not or if it was in centre of Bathurst at All Saints or in one of the towns surrounding Bathurst.

I'll check the All Saints film at the library next visit.

16 Dec 1885 Sunny Corner is east of Bathurst.

Margaret is the daughter of two convicts. We have looked at her in a previous topic.

Decided this time around to start with John and see if anything new was found. Yes - details from the trees I didn't have - not that I can confirm all of it.

Didn't have this:

Birth TURNER HARRIET A 5175/1864 JAMES CHARLOTTE BATHURST * 12 Feb

Thanks Ellie.

Appledore, Kent is new to me as is the name Richard.

All I had for Charles was age at death pointing to 1836 and no idea re pob or parents.

Children
8657/1872 COLEMAN CHARLES R CHARLES MARGARET CARCOAR
Have not followed any of the children so don't know if R = Richard.

I'll have to return to this tomorrow.

Yes, father is Thomas, a convict from Dublin.

Place is Portland which is east of Sunny Corner which is east of Bathurst.

Nothing in Trove or ACI.

Thanks Geoff.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wed 22 Feb 1865 p.5
GOULBURN.
Tuesday.
At the police court, yesterday, Thomas James Lodge and Thomas Jones, charged with receiving saddles from bushrangers, were remanded for eight days. Christina McKinnon and Ellen Monks, on remand, for assisting the bushrangers Hall, Gilbert, and Dunn to burn Mr. Morris's stores at Binda, were committed for trial. Margaret Monks, charged with the same offence, was discharged.

John Coleman b. 5 Mar 1866 Tuena, NSW

Not in the index and I have no way of confirming those details.

Father is probably Charles who married Margaret Monks but 1866 - 1872 is a large gap so Margaret may not be John's mother although 'Margaret' is listed on his death reg.

Info in post #15 says parents living. Place looks like Appledore.. Do you want a copy of the image, Dave?
