Henry EDWARDS , 18431925 (aged 82 years)

Given names

It should be noted that the names of Henry's parents in his death registration are totally different to his birth parents. Is this a transcription error or informant error or whether this Henry is the son of John and Sarah.


I received this email on 11 January 2020:

Hi Stuart,

Great website.

You currently have William & Wilhelmina Edwards listed but you don’t have William’s parents or his siblings.

John (1808-1868) & Sarah Edwards Aretta Edwards (1811-1887) arrived in Australia with their three children as assisted emigrants aboard the Gulnare (1836). They were sponsored by Charles Boydell of Camyr Allyn. At 7, William was the eldest child.

The other children on the Gulnare were: Jane (1832-1908) who married William Everett Sarah (1833-1916) who married several times.

More children came along in Australia. They were: John (1841-1936) who married Elizabeth Henwood Henry (1843-1925)

[Henry's death registration has his parents as William and Jane - totally different to John and Sarah who Merridee shows.]

Oliver Cromwell (1847-1927)

This list may not be complete

If you need any further information, please let me know
