red mail Murphy, William
I am researching my Murphy/Sewell links to Chelmsford. My 3 GGfather and GGmother were William Murphy and Mary nee Sewell (married c.1859).There are several Mary Sewells of maybe the right age listed in 1852 Census. Their son (Alfred Sidney) was born in 1861 and William was listed as gentleman, so no clues available as to occupation. By 1890, the son Alfred was in Brisbane Australia, via Mauritius married to Sarah Ann Davis in Brisbane Australia. (1891) A letter of recommendation from the Bishop of Mauritius for the son (Alfred) on his way to Australia (He seems to have been a teacher in Mauritius) says that William Murphy was dead and implies that Mary Sewell was a widow and maybe deceased herself by then. Any cousins still there in Chelmsford? Mary does not appear in death records in Queensland I think, because there are lots listed as Mary Murphy, and you can imagine the numbers of Mary Murphys of the right age in the Irish enclave of Queensland is horrendous. The big problem is that I do not know her (Mary SewellÂ’s) parents names, or William Murphys. If only they had an unusual surname? Any cousins many times removed out there? My daughter and I would love to find out more. Regards Rosie.
