There is a slight problem with the family in Devon, especially if Thomas aged 1 is the son of John & Janet.

Two births but only one found in 1841.

Births Mar 1840
Price Thomas Barnstaple 10 43
Births Jun 1840
Price Thomas Barnstaple 10 46

I was expecting the parents to be Edward and Elizabeth, but I don't know when they died.

I hope another Thomas aged about 1 can be found in 1841.



Assisted immigrants arriving at Moreton Bay-Brisbane, 1848-59
PRICE Thomas 43 and family Fortitude 1849 F2354

Thomas PRICE c. 8 Jul 1805 Ilfracombe, Devon
Edward PRICE & Eliz


Qld. Death 1871/B06619 Price Thomas - Edward Price - Elizabeth Thorne

Thanks Geoff.

Oh, that's new to me. Brothers married sisters and the 2x Thomas born 1840 are cousins.

Several things don't add up.

I'll start in the middle :biggrin: with this marriage:

Marriages Sep 1837
PRICE Thomas Barnstaple 10 41
BAXTER Elizabeth Barnstaple 10 41

One of the 1840 births for Thomas and this one for a sister:

Births Jun 1838
PRICE Elizabeth Margaret Barnstaple 10 47

are the children of the above couple. The family has not been found in 1841 and the four of them arrived in 1849.

The 1841 census I posted was the best that could be found on the basis that Thomas born 1840 was there (with wrong siblings and wrong parents). It turns out we have 2x Thomas born 1840.

Yeah, it rings a bell this one...

And, there is a tree that has bro. Thomas (not cousin) b. Wales 1805:rolleyes:

Geoff
The 2x Thomas born 1840 would be cousins - John who stayed in Devon and brother Thomas b. 1805 Devon went to Qld. with family.

The parents of John should be Edward and Elizabeth. I can't find that marriage in England. I'ce not looked in Scotland.

John Price
christening: 18 July 1802 ILFRACOMBE,DEVON
father: Edward Price
mother: Eliz

It's not too informative and has gaps/wrong info...

But has this for Janet:
Refer to 1851 census for birth..
Father, Baxter b. 1765
Mother, Margaret b, 1766

It has this 1841 census for Janet and mother..

Civil Parish: Burntisland Burgh
County: Fife
Address: Hgh Street South
ED: 1; Page: 35; Line: 860

Margaret Baxter 75 [b. Fife]
Janet Baxter 35 [b. Burntisland]

I suppose she could have been staying with her mother, especially if a child due, though a long way to travel :rolleyes:

This is not good...

1871
RD: Burntisland
Civil Parish: Burntisland
County: Fife
Address: High Street
ED: 2; Page: 5; Line: 23; Roll: CSSCT1871_70

Margaret Baxter 67 [b. Burntisland. Domestic servant cook]
Janet Baxter 67 Sister [do. do]

So that would discount the 1841 Janet with mother :rolleyes:

Edit: Text in bold added.

I say Thomas and John are brothers - sons of Edward & Eliz.

The 2x Thomas born 1840 are cousins.

John Price c. 18 July 1802 Ilfracombe, Devon
Edward Price & Eliz

Thomas Price c. 8 Jul 1805 Ilfracombe, Devon
Edward Price & Eliz
