Richard RICHARDS

I'll find it one day.

I've searched Qld. and NSW assisted and Victoria and I can't find Richard in shipping records. Did find a few ships captains. Don't know what occupation he had in NSW.

Yep, I found the same, one was a carpenter... I can't see any other members of his immediate family either..

Webbs Creek is east of the divide so not near Orange/Bathurst but possible.


No match in the unassisted to NSW then Geoff?

I've not found deaths yet for James senior and Jemima.

When James junior married in Methodist Church Leichhardt in 1914 his father was listed as a carpenter.
 
I'd like the occupation of this one please:

Thanks Geoff.

That's the right one so now the sub-division please. He keeps swapping his given names around.

A very rare NSW index entry with mother's maiden name:

Thanks Geoff.

I can't find a remarriage for Jemima. So far I've only looked in NSW for their deaths.
 
No idea Geoff.

I can't find a tree or their deaths.

I can't find her in 1861 in Cornwall yet.

Thanks Geoff.

James junior was born in Marrickville. Neither of those deaths are in Ryerson.

I've checked 'Phonetic search on Surname' and it finds KITTOW as well but still no Jemina. Jane and Julia the only Js. It's not a G.
