Despite the fact the marriage has Jane's father as Michael there is a tree that has it as Thomas. Her birth 1843 Marylebone and mother = Jane. But it agrees she died in 1932 so it must be the death I posted with father = Michael. Don't know yet if the Frances bit and that marriage are right or not. No middle name for Jane here:

14932/1879 PARNWELL SYLVESTER WILLIAM JANE COOTAMUNDRA
16632/1881 PARNWELL FRANCIS WILLIAM WILLIAM JANE COOTAMUNDRA
13189/1882 PARNWELL EMILY CHRISTINA WILLIAM JANE PICTON

There seems to be no birth reg for Jane in 1843.

The tree only has the children born in Australia and not the two who arrived on the vessel.

Births Mar 1876
PARNWELL Nelly Islington 1b 259 mmn CRIPPS

The one born in Elsworth, Cambridgeshire seems to be the son of William and Phoebe and then the son of William and Hannah. I can't find both in any census so perhaps Hannah is a second wife But this William is with Hannah in 1871. There are two Williams and Janes in 1871 but one is born Suffolk and one Devon. Are you sure about the Cambridge part?

Hello Barbara,

If the tree is correct then William was born Elsworth. Shipping record says Cambridgeshire but not all shipping records are correct re pob or parents:

New South Wales, Australia, Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896
Name: William Parnwell
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1845 (born: Cambridgshire)
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Voyage Arrival Date: 23 Jul 1877
Vessel Name: Corona

New South Wales, Australia, Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896
Name: Jane Parnwell
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1844 (born: London, Middlesex)
Age: 33
Gender: Female
Voyage Arrival Date: 23 Jul 1877
Vessel Name: Corona

So, either William & Jane are missing in 1871 or William was not born Cambridgeshire or the 'Suffolk' or 'Devon' bit is wrong.

Where were the 2x Jane born according to 1871?

Regards,

Dave

I will view the shipping reel next time I'm at the library and hope it has parents listed for William and Jane. But this must be his death in NSW:

11219/1923 PARNWELL WILLIAM - WILLIAM - PHOEBE - ASHFIELD

The tree does not list the date of the marriage of William & Jane.

The tree does not have Beatrice or Nelly, the two born before the family arrived in Australia.


So we are missing a death for Phoebe.

Bit hard for that to be the right William if he is living at home the year after he married.

Looks like we had better wait until I can view the shipping record.
