NSW Deaths
2669/1879 RUDDLE WILLIAM - WILLIAM - MARY - GLEBE
9969/1906 RUDDLE ELIZABETH 75 YRS PADDINGTON PADDINGTON

Assuming they married in England before 1843 and that a daughter Mary Ann was born abt 1843 I'd like a look up please for them in 1851 possibly Devon.

The name has many variations: RUDEL, RUDDEL, RUDLE

Arrival in Australia before 1863 not yet found.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

I don't know yet that the William and Elizabeth in post #1 are husband and wife or that they are the parents of a Mary Ann or that they arrived in Australia from England.

I'm trying to solve the Mary Ann puzzle by not searching directly for her. I'd better mention what I know for fact and what is supposed about her.

NSW Marriage 349/1863 POWELL BURTON - RUDDLE MARY ANN - SYDNEY

Can't find a notice in TROVE.

NSW Death 3639/1885 POWELL BERTRAM - THOMAS - BETSY - PETERSHAM

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 14 May 1885 p.14
Funerals.
... BURTON POWELL, to move from his late residence, Bishop-street, St. Peters, to St. Peter's Cemetery, at 4 o'clock p.m., May 14.

11 children born between 1864 and 1884. The majority of the birth reg have mother's name as Annie. It's very likely 'Annie' remarried:

NSW Marriage 2534/1885 WRIGHT THOMAS - POWELL ANNIE - PETERSHAM

Several trees have Mary Ann born abt 1843 Devon.

Annie's death is still to be sorted out.

This looks to be the right one but only fits if baptised at age 3.

William Ruddle c. 18 Nov 1827 Corsham, Wiltshire
Thomas Ruddle & Mary

1841
HO107 Piece 1171 Book/Folio 13/23 Page 11
Civil Parish: Corsham
Hundred: Chippenham
County: Wiltshire
Registration District: Chippenham
Sub-RD: Corsham
ED: 19
Address:
Lucy Harris 50
Maryann 15
Jane 5 Wiltshire
Page 12
Mary Ruddle 45 Y
...
[several other labourers nbic]
William Ruddle 20 ? Lab N ?
[several other labourers bic]


The William in the 'Tartar' shipping record is 33 in 1857 - Thomas & Mary Father dead Mother at Corsham Wilts

The census fits to be the right Mary but perhaps not the right William.

Thanks Geoff.

That one is ruled out.

The William aged 20 a labourer not born Wiltshire does not fit either.

It's not a difficult one. :biggrin: Working from this looking for the right William and the right Mary. I have not found a connection to HARRIS yet.

Arrived 27 Jul 1857
William 33 Navvie ? Chipenham Wilts Thomas & Mary Father dead Mother at Corsham Wilts C.E. No Relations in Colony None Good None £1


He died in 1879 but no age at death or death notice yet and no burial record either at Rookwood found so far.
