Hello crankypants,

One branch of the family seem to use KILFEDDER and the others KILFEDER but I'm not sure that's how it always is in the records.

John Robert KILFEDDER b. 1882 Ararat d. 1937 Mont Park

1919 VIC Electoral Roll – Wimmera – Kerang
KILFEDDER John Robert, Koondrook, postmaster
Please see what you can find after 1919. Thanks.

Weird how the system sometimes refuses to accept the upper case in title names.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

The two siblings born before her both died young. I have marriages for the siblings who did survive so I suspect Mary Ann was another who died young. Or another who has joined Fred. :D

Dave

Hello crankypants,


The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Wednesday 21 December 1949 p.10
DEATHS
KILFEDER.-On December 20, at her daughter's residence Melbourne, Emily Bertha, late of Bendigo, loved wife of the late John C. Kilfeder and loving mother of Madge, Walter (deceased, 1st A.I.F.), and Olive, in her 85th year.

DEATHS
KILFEDER.-On December 20, at the residence of her daughter (Mrs. O. Somerville), 67 Queen's road, Melbourne, Emily Bertha, dearly beloved grandmother of Lesley and Peter Hennessy.

So both daughters alive on 20 Dec 1949.

But have I made an assumption that is wrong? Is the O. for Olive or the initial for SOMERVILLE and which daughter married him, Olive May or Lilian Margaret (Madge) ???

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I have more than my share of unusual names in my tree. This is one of them. :)

Kilfedder, Kelfedder, Gilfeder, Gilfedder, Gilfeather

Farmer
Griffiths Valuation: year?
Leitrim Moneen John & Michael Kilfeder

Moneen/Móinín = The Little Field or Bog. Area 275 acres. Population 180 (1841); 136 (1851); 122 (1861); 85 (1891); 58 (1911). Number of houses: 33 (1841); 23 (1851); 21 (1861); 22 (1891); 14 (1911). Part of Oakfield Estate. Many of the workers on the estate lived here. A mill and kiln was operated by Samuel Mortain in the middle of the last century. The Grove (Melvin Grove) was once the home of the Church of Ireland Rectors of the parish. It was also a police barracks and, during this century, the home of Dr. Walsh, medical doctor for the area. John Kilfeder taught a Hedge School here in the 1820s.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

I have 14 TRELOARs in my tree including a Bennett born 1871 in Timor, Vic. but he ended up in Narrandera. Bennett was a common given name so it will take some sorting out later.

Another KILFEDER daughter.

1942 VIC Electoral Roll - Bendigo - Bendigo
DAVEY Alfred Ernest, 68 Wills st., manager
DAVEY Edith Elizabeth, 68 Wills st., home duties
Edith died in 1952 and Alfred in 1948.

Please see what you can find after 1942. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave
