Hello cp,

While searching through newspaper clippings I came across this one:

Newspaper ?? - March 1862
HIRST-JOHNSON.-On the 30th of August last, at St. Stephen's, Richmond, Victoria (Australia), Mr. Wm. Hirst, of Ballarat, second son of Mr. John Hirst, of Huddersfield, to Eliza daughter of the late Mr. Henry Johnson, of Huddersfield.

So I think we should see if this is the same John HIRST or not.

Given Name Surname Alternative Name Occupation Residence Death Date Details
William Hirst Farmer Mailers Flat 21 Apr 1919 More
William Hirst Old Age Pensr Malvern 8 Dec 1915 More


Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thanks. Yes I transcribed it from the image but the file name didn't have the name of the newspaper. I will correct that now with November not March.

I must be crazy. :2fun:

For the period 1810-1820 in Huddersfield alone, not counting Kirkheaton, Kirkburton or Almondbury, there are 11 marriages for a John HIRST.

We need a death reg with mother's name in full. ;)

I can't see a William arriving assisted into Victoria early enough for the marriage.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thanks.

I've been looking at some trees that have one HIRST family ending up in NZ. One of the Victorian Probate records is for a William Lockwood (a place near Huddersfield) HIRST who died 1 Feb 1907 in NZ.

It listed the beneficiaries and one was a HIRST but next to it was written "Stranger in Blood" :D

Regards,

Dave

So going by William's death age of 82 in 1915 we'd be looking for a birth abt 1833 +/-2, father John, in Huddersfield.

West Yorkshire, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906
Name: William Hirst
Birth Date: abt 1831
Parish: Huddersfield, St Peter
Baptism Date: 17 Jul 1831
Father's name: John Hirst
Mother's name: Esther Hirst
Occ: Manufacturer

West Yorkshire, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906
Name: William Hirst
Birth Date: abt 1833
Parish: Huddersfield, Holy Trinity
Baptism Date: 22 Sep 1833
Father's name: John Hirst

Hello cp,

Thanks.

That could be Esther SHAW - marriage 1816 Huddersfield.

Marriage 1817 Mary GARSIDE or Mary SHAW in 1810. Can't see a marriage for a Mary Ann to a John. I'll look outside Huddersfield.

1827 Huddersfield Mary Ann DYSON - submitted record.

In area around Huddersfield there are five more marriages for a Mary.

William was the 2nd son.

For Holy Trinity with mother Mary Ann I can see baptisms for:

Elizabeth 1828
Mary Ann 1835
Elizabeth 1837

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thanks.

I don't want to go there. :D The BARRACLOUGH records I noticed were submitted. A son:

John c. 20 Oct 1831 Marsh, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England
Death: 1 Jan 1888 - no place given but closest one in Huddersfield has age 6 years out.


I can find only two non-conformist baptisms with mother Esther - Tirzah & Allen.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

I just downloaded William's Will. It's very short and he leaves half to his spouse Mary Ann and half to his married daughter, Mary Ann Abraham.

I've looked through TROVE. There are several William HIRSTs in Victoria but nothing else that helps. I didn't see the marriage to Mary Ann.

The only tree I can find is the one with a HIRST family in NZ. I'll see if I can find the connection to William Lockwood HIRST who died in 1907. No mention and no sign of a Mary Ann or Esther as spouse.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Rod,

Thanks for posting the details but perhaps we are researching different families. It seems to be a third HIRST family in Australia because nothing there matches anything in my tree.

Just to make sure I've not missed the connection could you please fill me in on
John Hirst and Mary Ann Barraclough
When and where did they marry?

Who are the parents ?

Thanks.

Dave

Hello Rod,

Mary Ann is not in my tree but I will try to find her parents for you. The ones in my tree born around 1805 were born at Jackson Bridge - Non-Conformist RG4 birth records. Such as:

RG4/2744
Charlotte Barraclough the Daughter of Benjamin and Esther Barraclough was born at Jackson Bridge in the Parish of Kirkburton Yorkshire March the 5 1806

There are 5 trees and none with parents for Mary Ann. One of the trees has John's parents as William HIRST and Elizabeth NORTH. I don't know if that is correct but looking at names of children: Sarah, John, William, Mary Ann, Elizabeth, ... makes me wonder. Does John's death list his parents?

I can't find a birth/baptism record for her or any clues as to her parents.

Dave
