I wonder if the second marriage was registered. :D Goulburn about 1886 ??? I wonder how old Alice was. I can't see if it was her 2nd or if she remarried after Joseph died. I also can't find her death.

Hello,

The father should be Aaron but no doubt it's the right person.

I can't find the marriage in England.

I also can't find his arrival in Victoria.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I wonder:

Marriage # 3830/1885 LEAR JOSEPH PALMER ALICE M ARGYLE ?

Can we rule it out somehow?

His brother was the informant so did Alice die before 1898?

Death # 6066/1906 LUTTON ALICE M EDWARD RACHEL NEWTOWN

I can not find a marriage in NSW for an Alice M to a PALMER.

I can't see a marriage of an Edward PALMER to a Rachel.

I would say it was Alice's 2nd marriage because there are no PALMER deaths in NSW with parents Edward & Rachel.

No births early enough in NSW for an Alice Anything with parents Edward & Rachel.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Coincidence then it's Alice M. :D

Spouse is John LUTTON. :2fun: Don't jump to conclusions!!

Death # 10934/1906 LUTTON ELLEN JANE WAVERLEY

John is spouse of Ellen. :)

Marriage # 2505/1882 LUTTON JOHN MOON ELLEN ELIZABETH NEWTOWN

Ok, ruled in, ruled out and ruled in. :D

No Alice LUTON or LEWTON in Trove in 1906.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I'm stuck with Alice. Too many Edward PALMERs to search on the assumption that's her maiden name.

I'm also stuck with the marriage James is said to have had in Bristol and his arrival about 1863.

There are plenty of LUTON /LEWTON marriages in Gloucester & Somerset in IGI but all too early or too late.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

From a different angle. Assuming James b. abt 1822 did marry in Bristol and that his spouse was Ann then two possible deaths in that area Gloucester / Somerset:

Deaths Sep 1848
Lewton Ann Keynsham 11 77

Deaths Dec 1859
Luton Ann Keynsham 5c 499

Of course one of those might be his mother (nee HODGES b. ?? d. ?? not found in census yet).

I don't have James in any census. ;)

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Here is his brother (not found in 1841):

1851 Wales Census
Civil Parish: Swansea
Registration District: Swansea
County: Glamorganshire
Address: - Street
LEWTON, Joseph Head Married M 25 1826 Cheese Factor (Hawking Cheese) Kingswood Gloucestershire
LEWTON, Mary Wife Married F 1828 Kingswood Gloucestershire

James is probably also born (abt 1822) in Kingswood, Bristol, Gloucestershire.

I don't know where he would be in 1841, 1851 or 1861.

In NSW he was a produce dealer like his father Aaron. I suppose it could be listed as hawker or merchant.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I forgot. redf)

Marriage # 1284/1882 LEWTON JAMES MCFARLANE MARY ANN SYDNEY

GROOM: James LEWTON

Status: Widower
Place of Birth: England
Occupation: Dealer
Age: 55
Usual residence: Sydney
Father: Not stated
Occupation: Not stated
Mother: Not stated

One other possibility and that's his spouse died in Australia. No sign of a death in NSW that fits.

Regards,

Dave
