Death 3573/1871 PEPPER HENRY - JAMES - MARY - GOULBURN

So far I've not found a remarriage or a death for Victoria. Parents are John & Ann.
 
Im not finding anything on Victoria. What do we know of the daughter, Elizabeth? I havent been able to find anything on her neither :confused:
 
Thanks for looking gibbo.

No, Elizabeth seems to have been their only child. I've found nothing on her either.
 
A strange one Dave, seems like mother and daughter just disappeared into thin air :confused:

Something doesnt seem right with this one. Hope they didnt come to any harm.
There is no notices for missing persons or divorce in Trove that i can find.
 
No problem with sister:

Error with mother's name. Correct one is Ann:

Yeah, I looked at this one for a good while and drew the same conclusions..

However, I don't know if you noticed, but on the 'Bee' was a Bridget Flood, parents Thomas and Maria both dead.

Bridget looks to be a sponsor of an Eliza Flood who arrived 1858..

New South Wales, Australia, Immigration Deposit Journals, 1853-1900
Name: Eliza Flood
Age: 21
Birth Year: abt 1837
Place of Origin: Dublin
Sponsor Name: Bridget Flood
Deposit Date: 15 Nov 1858

Not uncommon names though...

Thanks Geoff.

Didn't notice Bridget. Thought it worth tracing sister Victoria. No idea if there is any connection between Bridget and Victoria.

I did notice that Victoria said her mother was living in Dublin and a year later Emma said her mother was dead.

Would have to be the same Henry Pepper. His death not in Ryerson. Can't find much on him in TROVE. Even less for Victoria.

I can't see a burial record for Ann(e) 1856/1857 in Dublin.

This was the closest I could see, too early though..

Being Dublin and CofE or CofI not RC or Presbyterian I'm surprised the record can't be found.
