Hello crankypants,

1903-1906 N.S.W Sands Directory
POWELL W.H., Alfred st., Merrylands


W H was probably born about 1837 in Ireland.

The previous sibling was Mary Elizabeth c. 5 Nov 1835 Stradbally Church of Ireland parish registers

The next sibling was Sydney:

Vessel 'Susan' arrived 10 Mar 1839 from Plymouth 1 'bv' Powell (male)

Birth Reg# V1839105 23A *** probably Sydney's baptism ***

Death # V186311285 122C/1863 POWELL SYDNEY

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Vessel 'Susan' arrived 1 Feb 1839 from Londonderry no bv

There are three vessels named 'Susan' and two arrived about a week apart. The one from Londonderry didn't have the birth of a male POWELL. The records of the two are mixed together on the films. I've not viewed the reels but I've been told it's very difficult sorting out which passengers were on which vessel and therefore their origin.

It's also odd that records exist for all siblings born before W H in Co Limerick but no record of his birth or baptism. Since it seems the family embarked from Plymouth perhaps he was born in England. But if the date is correct then they left Ireland two years before departure. ???

Regards,

Dave

EDIT: Waverley Cemetery ***

married 1893 Sydney

Percy Edward WOOTTEN b. 1871 Redfern d. 1927 Paddington

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. That's one of the 7 children. Leopold died in St Vincent's Hospital. I tried the ESMP site but it was down.

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. At least we are lucky 90% of the POWELLs have at least one middle name. ;)

Norman must be Percy's brother. Yes. Norman married Lena in 1904 so who is Frances. ???

Not an error like this one and not as Francis either:

4259/1871 WOTTEN PERCY EDWIN FRANCES REDFERN

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 13 April 1868 p.1
MARRIAGES
On Saturday, March 26, at Holy Trinity Church, by the Rev. R. Rogers, EDWIN WOOTTEN, to FRANCES ELIZA, youngest daughter of the late E. T. Y. M'DONALD, Esq.

EDIT: or should that be IDIOT: Must be the mother :D

Death # 2482/1905 WOOTTEN FRANCES E EDWARD T Y W AGNES S PADDINGTON

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

1903 N.S.W Electoral Roll - WENTWORTH-GLENMORE POLLING-PLACE
2630 Powell Minnie 40 Comber-street domestic duties
2631 Powell William George Henry 40 Comber-street carpenter

Can't find a William George Henry. Included this one just in case.

3895 Powell Mary 19 Weedon-avenue domestic duties
3896 Powell William George 19 Weedon-avenue tailor's presser

Your right with the name 'Ruby Marion Falkner' how could you vanish. Another alien abduction.

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. I don't have a Christina so probably not the right carpenter. Why did you bold Underwood street?

Dave
