Thanks dave.

Any sign of her mother Lois in 1841?

This is one of 2x Sarah SLATERs born abt 1826 I'm chasing. I hope eventually to find one in England in 1851 and not find the other because one married in NSW in 1849. Pob and parents unknown, only age at death so not much to work with.

Thanks Geoff.

So we have two about the same age born Sussex.

I think it's a lost cause. All I have is a name and born abt 1826. I assumed Sussex just to keep the number down to I thought one. :biggrin:

There are too many born in England around 1826 so we are stuck. All the trees that have the marriage and death in Australia for the Sarah I'm after have no pob or parents or arrival vessel.

I can't see a birth for George, but there is a William:

Births Q3 1839
Slater William
Thakeham
7 417

There are other possibilities in the locality, but this fits age/date/area.

I can't see a Sarah who fits in shipping records.

It was an outside chance of finding one born 1826 Sussex in 1841 and not finding her in 1851.

Yes, and lots in other parts of England.

Did Owen marry someone who had the same accent? :biggrin: I can't assume Sarah was also from Sussex.

Still, I thought considering her age at death that it was possible to find her birth in Australia or her arrival.

Hi - researching same elusive Sarah Slater. Have had same issues in trying to 'identify'. Left me wondering if she was possibly a "local" girl from Goulburn/Yass? Were there any penalties for not registering a birth in ca 1826 in colonial NSW? Perhaps she was of mixed parentage or from other ethnic background? (I only suggest this due to the lack of any evidence thus far in immigration/indexes/parish records able to be searched etc). Oh, and because we have pictures of her daughters who had rather dark complexions for girls who were always in hats etc (my grandfather and aunt have very deep olive skin tone and have features that have triggered others to ask where they where from originally). Just a thought....:D

I think no one will ever know about Sarah's origins.

I have a picture of my great great grandfather and his daughter and they both have very curly hair leading someone to say they had to be Jewish. Nothing I have found points to that being true. People will read in what they like based on very little evidence.

Hi Dave,
Suspect you are correct re Sarah! A mystery!

Mum had her DNA tested (via Ancestry) and was rather surprised to find out (apparently) she has 94% western european ancestry and 6% middle eastern ancestry.

Thanks
Timna
