Hi Forum

I am trying to find info on the above member of my family tree, Joseph was brn in 1837 to William & Mary in OSM Devon. I can follow him upto the 1861 uk census where he is in the Crediton Workhouse as a Schoolmaster, after this time he is not in any further censuses. I've checked through the deaths index but found nothing, therefore I'm thinking he maybe emigrated to Australia or New Zealand.

Would anybody have any info on Channon's on ships lists etc.

Many Thanks

Hello and welcome to the Forum.


I have some of the Channon family in my tree. I'll check that first. Not there.

Can't see Joseph assisted to NSW or Qld.

No death found in NSW, Qld. or Vic. or WA or NZ.


This death in South Aust. needs checking.

1915 CHANNON Joseph undefined Port Adelaide 392/467

Not that one - age is more than 30 years out.

Thanks Dave & Emeltee
I have been looking through Ancestry and have found a Joseph Channon brn 1836 and died Queenstown South Australia 9 Feb 1898, but not sure if this is the correct Joseph, would a death certificate have his occupation etc.
There appears to be two Joseph's brn around 1835-7 around Ottery St Mary, so it's confusing as to which one might have gone to Australia.

Thanks

Hi Malcolm,

Entering Joseph Channon 1898 in SA Genealogy returns no hit for a death.

I'm going to the State Library tomorrow so I will have a look on fiche and in the book they have.

There is a Joseph Channon in Queenstown in 1893.


The Express and Telegraph (Adelaide, SA : 1867 - 1922) Tue 1 Jul 1902 Page 2 Family Notices
HOSKING—CHANNON.—On the 24 th June, at the
residence of the bride's grandmother, by the Rev.
S. Rossiter, Thomas Edgar, third son of Samp
son Hosking, of Franklin, to Hilda. Elizabeth, eld
est daughter of Joseph Channon, of Queenstown.


Joseph Channon born SA 1859 son of William.

Marriage 1882 CHANNON Joseph - JOHNSON Annie Port Adelaide 133/1286

Death 1915 CHANNON Joseph undefined Port Adelaide 392/467

I can look that marriage up tomorrow - it may list age and parents.

I can also look that death up but with 'undefined' it may contain nothing that helps.

Oh. Pays to have a very good memory. The Joseph who died in 1915 was born between 1850 and 1860.

Sat 22 May 1915

CHANNON. - on the 11th May, at his late residence, Whitney-street, Cheltenham, Joseph, the dearly beloved husband of Annie Channon, aged 66 years 10 months.

Im not sure about the above age, been computer generated.. the age stated in the article looks different to 66 :confused:

Died 11 May, buried 13 May - aged 55 and 10 mo. Not the right Joseph.

I will check the name and any other details for this death at the State Library tomorrow. It looks to be a William.

Queenstown South Australia 9 Feb 1898

Many thanks Dave & gibbo, there is possibly a connection with a William, Joseph had a brother William brn 1835 OSM, maybe he is the member of the family that went to Australia in the mid 1860's and died there.

Hi Malcolm.

William died 9 Feb 1898 aged 63.

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/54518961

No Obituary.

Married to Hephzibah Beulah - she died 15 Jun 1922 aged 87 - a colonist of 67 years.

A son John William born SA abt 1856.

Looks like arrival abt 1855.

On-line shipping lists end at 1851 on two sites.


Marriages Mar Qtr 1855 - Tiverton 5b 695
Channon William
PLAYER Hephzibah

The info here is not 100% correct given the marriage is 1855.

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/212947246

Mrs. Hephzibar Beulah Channon,
who passed away at the residence of
her daughter, Mrs. A. J. W. Lewis, at
Victoria Street, Queenstown, several
days ago, at the age of 87 years, was
a-colonist of nearly 68 years. Born
at Bradininch, Devonshire, on April
23, 1835, she married the late Mr.
William Channon, early in 1854, sailing
almost immediately for Port Adelaide
in the ship Constantine, and arriving
there in July of the same year.
