There is even more mystery with this family to come.

If the tree is correct Christiana is in Lee, Kent in 1861.
Frank, son of Charles ended up in Australia. He had a son Charles who had a son Frank. :2fun:

Well the tree has the death in 1880 for Charles and I have his marriage in 1881 so he was a clever chap. No mention of the connection to Queen Victoria:

Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : 1870 - 1907) - Saturday 22 January 1881 p.42
TAPP - PALMER.-January 5, at St. Jude's Church, Tumbarumba, by the Rev. W. White, incumbent of Adelong, Charles, eldest son of Frank Tapp, Esq., Sterling Farm, Cudal, near Orange, to Catherine Sarah, eldest daughter of Rodber Palmer, Esq., S.C.L., Oxon., C.B. catechist of Tumbarumba, and grand-daughter, of the late George Thomas Palmer, Esq., Lieutenant of H.M. 61st Regiment of Foot, likewise grand-daughter of the late Rev. George Augustus Middleton, A.M. St. John's College, Cantab., and for many years chaplain at Newcastle, New South Wales, and niece of the Hon. Charles Campbell, Esq., M.P., Barrister-at-law, and Chancellor of the diocese of Goulburn.
Here's the 1861 Dave

PARKINSON, Louisa E Servant Unmarried 20 House Servant
..., Middlesex

Piece: 414 Folio: 10 Page: 14
Registration District: Lewisham
Civil Parish: Lee
Address: 7, Belmont Place, Lee
County: London, Kent
The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 29 January 1918 p.6
TAPP.-January 24, 1918, at Ryde, Catherine Sarah, wife of Charles Tapp, formerly of Cudal, at the age of 64 years.

I read that as though Charles was still alive however they are not together in 1913:

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - RYDE - RYDE POLLING-PLACE
1794 TAPP Catherine Sarah, Weemala, Ryde, domestic duties
For some reason the trees have the marriage in 1877 and a death for Charles in 1880 which is impossible.
Wesleyan Baptisms in the Parramatta Circuit in the County of Cumberland 1855
Charles - Frank & Mary Ann Tapp Abode: Parramatta Quality or Profession: Labourer When Born: November 17 1855 When Baptised: December 20 1855 By whom the Ceremony was performed: Thomas Angwin

It's the death of this Charles that can't be found.
Don't know when Frank arrived or if he was still in England in 1851.

Can't find him in 1851 or in shipping records.

None of the trees have him in 1851 census or have his arrival.
