This is the only Amelia WALKER I can find anywhere near the right age and a widow, but I don't think it's the right one.

Hello dave,

I'm very interested to see if it might have Amelia as born in Wiltshire in 1851 or 1861. :) If so, then I probably have the right baptism and the right parents for her.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

I was speaking on the phone today with one of the WALKER descendants aged 90 who lives in Queensland. She didn't know Joshua was a grocer in his early years. :) I promised to send her a copy of the tree when it's done. She is sending me some old family photos. I don't have a scanner so I'll have to arrange something. We have not seen each other for over 50 years. :D

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

Age at death and age in shipping records and names at death and names in shipping records don't match. I have Arthur or James and I have 1845 or 1849 for the birth of Eliza. I think I have 2 of them in Islington and possibly one in Bethnal Green. I hope I'm not throwing you off.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

Thanks. :) I tend to agree with you but I will consider another approach. Possibly someone can check newspaper for either marriage notice.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

An alternative marriage for Mary Ann and one does lead to Victoria.

Marriages Mar 1848
Dodson George Halifax 22 140
Hirst Mary Ann Halifax 22 140

Could be them arriving..?

Family Name First Name Age Month Year Ship Port Fiche Page
DODSON ALICE 7 JUN 1859 YORKSHIRE B 163 003
DODSON GEORGE 31 JUN 1859 YORKSHIRE B 163 003
DODSON MARY 30 JUN 1859 YORKSHIRE B 163 003
DODSON THOS 10 JUN 1859 YORKSHIRE B 163 003

Surname: DODSON
Given Names: Mary Ann
Event: D
Father: Unknown
Mother:
Age: 64
Death Place: Majorca
Year: 1892
Reg. Number: 2682
b. c1828

If it's my Mary Ann then age at death is a bit out. Pity the reg has nothing for her parents.

Please see if they can be found in 1851. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave
