Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

Are we making progress? :2fun:

I suppose it helps someone's tree. Some things are not fitting into place.

It's necessary to sort out the 2 marriages in 1857 for a Selina/Selena LANE.

That looks like the one in the shipping record but does not seem to fit for spouse of James SMITH.
I can't see a death for Selina SMITH that fits parents Henry & Selina.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Selina Geake LANE c. 23 Jul 1835 St Clether Cornwall
- parents Richard & Elizabeth GEAKE

I can't find the marriage. I think Richard and Elizabeth came to Australia but I don't know when. I can't see them in Cornwall in 1841 or 1851.

The GEAKE name exists in Cornwall in 1700s.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Ozn,

Thanks. That would be great.

Still trying to match the several Selina LANEs and then rule them in or out. If Selina in #2 can't be found in 1861 then I'd say that's her in the shipping record. It does not prove who she married in Australia.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Ozn,

Thanks.

That's getting close to proving Selina from that family is the one in the shipping record. A milliner and a waistcoat maker. Now if we can find the marriage of Henry & Selina and if it's a Wesleyan or other NC I'd say we had enough proof.

Henry LANE & Selina WRIGHT
Marriage: 4 OCT 1821 Woodbury, Devon, England


We have a middle initial:

Selina Wright LANE c. 11 May 1834 Saint Sidwell, Exeter, Devon

Religion on shipping record is listed as Independent. So out of luck there with CofE.

I can't find a death in NSW for a married Selina or Selina W with parents Henry & Selina.

Not only can't I find a death but I can't find the birth of any child after the marriage:

32/1857 SMITH JAMES LANE SELINA SYDNEY

Regards,

Dave
