Pre-Civil Registration Deaths SA

DEVONSHIRE Joanna 15th March 1841 age 2 (residence - Hindmarsh) parents Charles & Elizabeth
DEVONSHIRE John Charles 13th October 1839 age 16 months (residence - Grenfell Street, Adelaide) parents Charles & Elizabeth

For the bad news, sorry no birth registration for William Thomas DEVONSHIRE, also checked pre-civil births but nothing.

There are five more children's births to Charles DEVONSHIRE & Elizabeth RASHLEIGH between 1844-1853. Do you have these births.


Just checked the Victoria Index to Wills, Probate etc.
DEVONSHIRE Charles died 14th August 1898 Yarram Yarram
http://proarchives.imagineering.com.au/index_search.asp?searchid=54
2 of the 3 items have been digitised.

3 more DEVONSHIRE'S in Yarram

"WHAT A BONUS"


Cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Cornwall is one of the 'easy' places to find stuff. I have several families in my tree from there - GRIBBLE, NANCARROW...

Age at death gives a date of about 1842. There is no indication William arrived with his parents so I presume he was born in Australia in the gap between 15 Mar 1841 when Joanna died and 1844.

I have Frederick August and Augusta Bessie thanks, but not the others.

Regards,

Dave
