Alexander GRIFFITHS , 18511923 (aged 72 years)

Alexander /GRIFFITHS/
Given names
Also known as
Alexander /GRIFFIS/

The year of Alexander's birth has been calculated on the statement from his death Index entry where it states that he was 72 years old at the time of his death in 1923.

The Pre 1860 Pioneer Register has Alexander being born in Devonshire, England. Michael Bruin, who has done extensive research on this family, has Alexander being born in NSW as the son of a convict James Griffiths and Sarah McGilvray. I cannot find any relevant record of Alexanders birth being registered in the NSW Births Index. This is not uncommon in these early years of the settlement.
