Jack KENDALL - Enlisted 24 Jul 1916 - S/N 6521 5th Bn - 24 yrs Clerk living at 17 Princess Tce St Kilda Rd Melbourne, Vic - Embarked Melbourne, Vic HMAT A71 'Nestor' 2 Oct 1916 - Served in France - Wounded in Action - Returned to Australia per 'Karoa' 8 May 1919 - Discharged 28 Oct 1919


The middle name Shepherd comes from the KENDALL side in England - name in records also as SHEPPARD.


Sarah married in 1901 so that gives a rough idea of when she was born.

Jack born abt 1892.

I can't see a marriage in England for Robert.

Marriage 1866 Victoria for a Robert KENDALL but spouse does not seem to be Ellen/Elinor/Eleanor McCARTHY/Mc CARTHY


Bealiba, Vic. ?? West of Bendigo and north of Maryborough.

Well his service record say sister R A HUGHES and the only possible match found so far is for Sarah Ellen KENDALL to a R A HEWS.

Searching for HUGHES or HEWS & KENDALL only turned up the one marriage.

I agree it's a bit of a problem in that the tree does not list Jack as one of the children.

We also have no death for Jack. Service record is clear on everything apart from pob and nok.

The 1920 marriage is quite clear with same middle name.


Death
Surname: HEWS
Given Names: Sarah Ellen
Father: Kendall Robert
Mother: Ellen McCARTHY
Death Place: BEND
Age: 88
Age Code:
Year: 1967
Reg Number: 1567
Event: D


That Sarah Ellen fits the tree for parents, although the tree has no marriage and no death for her.


Ok another problem. :) Jack born 1892 ??

Robert b. 1843 d. 1923
Ellen b. 1842 d. 1903

This is very weird.

Birth 16782/1893 CUMMINS JOHN J - DANIEL F - KATE - HAY

Catherine KENDALL's son John Joseph CUMMINS married Dorothy BARRACLOUGH 20 Mar 1920 Malvern, Vic.

However Dorothy married Catherine's brother Jack also in Victoria in 1920 according to reg #1936 posted earlier.

No #1936 is the reg number. The year is 1920 so must have been Jan-Mar.

Post #3 has the marriage.

If Dorothy ONLY married CUMMINS then the 1920 marriage to Jack is a complete error. But he still exists. We have his service record saying a sister is Mrs R A HUGHES.

If Dorothy married Jack in say January 1920 and he died (we don't have him in E/R or a death) then she married John Joseph CUMMINS in March the same year. ???

Searching TROVE in 1920 for either marriage. No luck.

Downloaded the 1911-1924 Victoria Divorce case file and no mention of BARRACLOUGH - KENDALL.


So what is going on?

Did Dorothy only marry John Joseph? Are they together in E/R?

Can Jack Gregory KENDALL be found after his discharge from the army in 1919?

This is not the right death. Parents and age don't fit. The tree has no death for John.

2533/1965 CUMMINS JOHN JOSEPH - PATRICK - MARGARET - SYDNEY

CUMMINS John Joseph Death notice 16MAY1965 Death 79 late of Vaucluse Sydney Morning Herald 18MAY1965


A John Joseph CUMMINS died 5 Jan 1928, late of Longwood, grazier.

There are several including an uncle of the one who married Dorothy. Oh, it looks as though the uncle died in 1884.

What's the chance we have 2x Dorothy May/Mary BARRACLOUGHs? This is the birth of the one in my tree:

5898/1899 BARRACLOUGH DOROTHY M - ALBERT H - NELLIE - PADDINGTON
5898/1899 BARRACLOUGH DOROTHY M - ALFRED - NELLIE - PADDINGTON

Father was baptised Albert Herbert but it seems he was known as Alfred.

CUMMINS John, late an inmate of the Hospital for Insane, Ararat, died on the 24th July 1933, interstate.

Too may John CUMMINS in Victoria.


The marriage of the parents of Dorothy in my tree:

2052/1898 BARRACLOUGH ALBERT H - MORTIMER NELLIE - WATERLOO

Fits with death for Dorothy May CUMMINS.

Thanks Geoff.

There are several issues and a new one just came to light - re the new post to the deaths board. Seems the Victorian Digger BMD CD has errors. Most of my Victorian BMD details came off look ups some years ago from the CD and given to me via posts here or by email.

Could well be that there is only one Dorothy May and that the record with spouse as Jack Gregory KENDALL is an error. Even if he does not belong in my tree there is still a mystery to solve re his birth, death, parents and sister, Mrs R A HUGHES/HEWS.

Thanks Geoff.

1955 death agrees with the tree. Still can't find the marriage to Ellen reversing the names for Robert.
