RE Lavenia / Lavinia Clarke nee Woodley
Lavinia was my 3rd Great grandmother. She died 19th April 1870 in Sydney aged 48 yrs and was buried at Camperdown Cemetery that no longer exists. Her father was Robert Woodley who was a convict and her mother was Elizabeth Hooper though her death certificate give her own name as mother. A mistake as everything else has Elizabeth.

Hello Cia and welcome to the Forum


Thank you very much for the details. The family is in my tree by marriage to a NEWBERY but well off any of my main lines.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave, you're welcome. I am new to the forum and still finding my way round. The Clarkes were an interesting family and at one time James and his eldest brother John Jn owned most of Hunters Hill in Sydney. Clarkes point on the river at Hunters Hill is named for them. They also built the only two remaining historic houses from the mid 1800's in the area. Viewforth, where James and his younger brother William, were both married on the same day. The other house is Woodstock. William incidentally married John Jns' step daughter Charlotte Webster whose mother of the same name was married to John Jn. By the early 1900's the properties had passed from their ownership probably to divide proceeds between beneficiaries I expect.

Hello Cia,

Thanks for some info on that Clarke family. I have by chance four different Clarke families in my tree, the others being from Co Down Ireland, Wiltshire and Yorkshire. None of them on a direct line though.

Regards,

Dave
