Looking for the marriage of Henry and Ann.

Looking for arrival of Richard in Australia. He married in 1862 in Victoria but may have arrived in another state.

Looking for deaths of Henry and Ann.


Don't know yet if this is the right death in Vic.

DEATH OF MRS TREVASKIS - We are sorry to record the death, which occured on Saturday last at her residence, Heathcote, of a very old colonist and resident of this district, Mrs Trevaskis, relict of the late Mr Henry Trevaskis, sen. Mrs Trevaskis, who was aged 90 years and 6 months, was born at Angarick, Lelant, Cornwall, in the year 1802, and was the daughter of M'r Tobias Mitchell, a farmer and mine manager at Angarick, Cornwall. She was married twice, having only one son, Mr James Oates, by her first husband, the son being still living, at Hayle, Cornwll, and 8 children, by her second marriage, all of whom were born in the old country, and of whom six are living, Henry at North Murchison, William at Mitchell's Creek, Wellington, New South Wales, Mrs Walker at Clairwood, Arcadia, Richard at Taripta, James at Heathcote and Samuel at Wild Duck. Mrs Trevaskis, and her husband Mr Henry T'revaskis, with their family arrived in Adelaide, in March 1849 and resided at the Burra Burra for 3 years, Mr Trevaskis being appointed on of the managers of the celebrated copper mine of that place. On the breaking out of the goldfields in Victoria they left the Burra Burra and came overland with their family to Bendigo, where they arrived on the 8th of March, 1852. The journey overland in the early days was no light undertaking. There was a track to follow and that was all, and the people met with on the way were principally wild blacks, in great numbers, and of whom and their long and hazardous jurney, the members of the family gave very interesting accounts. After residing in Bendigo for some time in the early and prime days of that goldfield, Mr and Mrs Trevaskis and family, came to this district, and in 1854 brought some
splendid land at the Wild Duck, paying £14 15s per nacre for it at a Government land sale, and followed farming and dairying. This land is now occupied and has been occupied for many years by their youngest son, Mr Samuel Trevaskis, Mr Trevaskis senr., in 1858 established a hay and corn store at Heathcote, to sell the produce of the farm, and since that time Mrs Trevaskis resided at Heathcote, having lost her husband 13 years ago. Mrs Trevaskis enjoyed wonderfully good health, having had no occasion to take medicine for many years till about six weeks ago, when she was laid up with the influenza and bronchitis, and could walk upstairs at her residence as well as any young person. The funeral took place on Monday, and was attended by relatives from a distance and many friends, the remains being interred in the Heathcote cemetary. The burial service was read by the Rev. Mr Dredge, Minister of the Wesleyan Church, who also gave a very impressive address.
