Parents George BECK & Suzanna MILLS

Hello Steve,

Thanks. That's a pity. Was hoping for Elizabeth's age. I have no idea who her parents are. She was possibly born in Middlesex. Any sign around 1787 of a baptism?

Regards,

Dave

Hello oznannie,

Thank you very much. Robert baptised 17 Apr 1786 is the only sibling I'm aware of who came to Australia, with a son and a daughter. Another son also came with his family. I must admit I never looked at the rest of batch C051722, which is something I should have done. I will go through them all this morning. Thanks for reminding me.

Regards,

Dave

Now the big question, what happened to Robert's brother William c. 14 Apr 1784 Tiverton, Devon. Did he marry and did any of his children came to Australia? :confused:

No doubt about Robert's death in NSW:

Death # 2438/1883 BECK ROBERT GEORGE SUSANNAH BALMAIN

At the moment I have nothing on brother William apart from his IGI baptism record.

I have found one marriage for a William in Devon and three in London assuming they were aged 18-25 at time of marriage. Unless a tree can be found I'm just fishing.
