Looking for the marriage and to trace that Thomas.

If he can be found in 1891 English census then not the one I'm after.

Thanks,

Re: PACKER - COTTRELL marriage Gloucester/Somerset

Thanks Elaine.

I'm trying to trace an elusive Hedley/Thomas/Edward/Edley PACKER born Gloucester 1869 - 1873 - no parents on his death reg in NSW.

Married 26 Mar 1891 in NSW so any in England after that date are ruled out.

Re: PACKER - COTTRELL marriage Gloucester/Somerset

Thanks Val.

That had not been found last time around so progress.

Name varies on all the children's birth reg

Birth 36532/1912 PACKER EVELYN E - HEDLEY T - EMILY - WATERLOO * 9 Aug 1912

Evelyn's birth cert. has her father as Hedley Thomas, a painter, 40 b. Glouc., England.

Age at death points to 1870 so we have 1869 - 1871 range.

Re: PACKER - COTTRELL marriage Gloucester/Somerset

Thanks Ellie.

Still looking for details of family after 1881. I've not found the family yet in 1891. FS limits the search options for that year making it harder to find what you are looking for.

Was he the only one to come to Australia? Arrival not yet found.

Births Dec Qtr 1843
Packer Charles Westbury on S 11 470 mmn BALDWIN


Marriages Sep Qtr 1841
Packer Daniel Westbury on Severn 11 527
BALDWIN Eliza Westbury on S 11 527

No death in NSW for a Charles with those parents.

Looks like Thomas was the only one to leave England 1881 - 1891.

This fits with age 17 when she married ...

Birth 12858/1874 WILLIAMS EMILY - ABRAHAM - ELIZA - LIVERPOOL * 21 May 1874

... but it's Abraham not Isaac.
