Big question is what was Ada’s Mother’s surname name – married a Lathan and then a George Booth and was Ada born Latham or did she marry a Latham before Josiah…

There is a Ada and Elizabeth Latham discharged from London Workhouse March 1879

MUDFORD ADA 14986/1944 THOMAS – HARRIET – BALMAIN

SMH – Mon 7 Aug 1944
MUDFORD.—August 5, 1944, at her daughter's residence, 103 Louisa Road, Long Nose Point, Balmain, Ada Mudford, widow of the late Josiah Mudford, of Johnstone Road, Bass Hill, loving mother and mother-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Woodward, and dear grandma of Rene (Mrs. B. Mills), aged 83 years. At rest. = b 1861

Thanks Val.

This is a tricky one. Stepfather of Mrs Josiah Mudford as of 1894, long before the marriage to Ada.

Evening News Wed 7 Dec 1892 – In Memorium

ATKINSON – In loving memory of my dear mother Harriet Atkinson, who died December 7 1891 aged 63 years. Inserted by her loving son Josiah Rudford



Harriet Patten b 1828 married John MUDFORD Dec qtr 1846 Yeovil – Vol 10 page 873 – he died 29 July 1866 Mitchells Island NSW – on Findagrave



on Cambodia passenger list has Harriet’s parents as David & Mary Patten – Somerset



her baptism 16 March 1828 Barrington Somerset – David (a weaver) & Mary – b Jan 20 1828



Marriage Bonds & Allergations has her down as Harriet Hatten married 25 Dec 1846 Middle Chinnock Somerset



her parents marriage 23 Oct 1825 Martock Somerset – Mary Rowsell to David Patten



Harriet’s 2nd marriage 1874 Manning River to Thomas Hughes – he died 14 May 1883 Mitchells Island – on findagrave.



Harriet’s 3rd marriage 1885 Taree to Richard Atkinson



Harriet’s sister Phylis b 1837 married Richard John Porter May 1856 Vic and died Scarsdale Vic age 90 on 23 June 1927– parents correct – her arrival is under Phillis Pallen (is Patten)– arrived Geelong 1 June 1855 on “Epaminondas” age 22, married 1 May 1856 Vic to Richard John Porter (1830-1906)



Another sister Melina Patten baptised 30 May1832 to David & Mary Barrington – married 24 Feb 1852 West Chinnock to Jonah Langdon (1831-1910) and arrived on same ship as sister Phylis in 1855 – she died April 1911 Vic – think a big error on parents on death cert...has father as Josiah Patten...



Brother Josiah Patten b 1830 married Feb 1849 Hannah Solway Middle Chinnock and arrived 8 Aug 1849 Port Phillip Bay on ship “Nelson”- he died April 1872 Vic – parents correct

Thanks Val.

I read that as Danl. not David. Does not look like Patten on the shipping image but it is Patten in 1891 death reg.
