red mail Daniel and Julia Sullivan and Ellen, Jo(h)anna, Michael and Margaret
I need help please with my Sullivan family. Daniel (b abt1831) and Julia (b abt1834) were born and married in Ireland. They had Ellen b abt 1847 and (Jo(h)anna b abt 1851 in Ireland (maybe Cork). Michael was apparently born in Sunderland about 1853, and Margaret was born in Chatham in 1859. I've been unable to find a birth for Margaret. I've ordered so many incorrect birth certificates, but the parents are wrong. The family was Catholic, and I've not found a christening record as yet either. Daniel was a labourer, I think he worked on the docks. Can anyone help? I live in New Zealand so I'm restricted to online research. Many thanks.

red mail James Watson, late of Chatham Kent
I'm seeking info on James Watson (born abt 1816) and Ann Elizabeth Woods, a milliner (born 1819 in Parsonstown). They were married at Kororareka (now Russell) in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, in 1841. In the newspaper announcement of his son's marriage in Australia in 1875, James is described as "late of Chatham, Kent". The same announcement says the son, George, is "the nephew of James Rolleston of St Kilda, Parsontown Ireland".

red mail John Meek, Clerk at Fort Pitt, Chatham
I am trying to find out a bit more about my 3 x Great Grandparents John and Mary Ann Meek. I have no proven details for them but I know that John was described as a Clerk at Fort Pitt on the baptism of their daughters, Mary Ann (B 1811), Elizabeth Massett (B 1814), Sarah (B 1817), Charlotte (B 1819) all baptised at St Mary's Chatham together on 5 July 1820. There was also a son, John Meek born 1820 who married Harriet Usher in 1839 in St Mary Newington and they were my 2 x Gt Grandparents. John was a Police Officer. I have a possible marriage between John Meek (senior) and Mary Ann Inment Brayley (B 1789) on 21 August 1808 in Dover but other people researching the same family have him as marrying Mary Ann Norwood in 1806 in Marylebone. Both these marriage records are Banns so there is no other information to prove which is correct. As John was working at Fort Pitt at the time of his children's births, I find it more likely that he married in Dover than in Marylebone. I would appreciate any help with finding out more about him.
My gt grandparents William and Jessie Joanna THEOBALD lived in New Road Rochester and Letchworth Avenue Chatham from about the middle of the 1800s to the early 1900s. Their youngest daughter Kathleen Hilda POLES nee THEOBALD was my maternal grandmother. William was a tobacco manufacturer. Their children were Reginald (killed in action 1919) who was wounded and awarded the military cross in 1918, William junior, Mabel, Doris (who married Hector KENNEDY), Ethel, Jess (who married Roland STEPHENS) and Kathleen and 1 other. William senior's father was also William and his mother was Amy. There were family links to the SPENCELAIGH family (Jessie's parents were William and Mary Ann SPENCELAIGH with a link to the famous artist), the RICHARDSON family, KIRTON family, Fairfax SHELDON and ELLIS families. I have lovely photos of the family in an indexed album. William may have come from London, possibly Whitechapel. If you have any information I would be very grateful to hear from you and share info and photos. Thank you

Greetings from Bermuda. My ancestors came from Chatham, Kent as far as I know. Info via the family bible. I'm searching for my Gr.Gr.Grandparents William WILSON (no birth nor death dates known) & Patience Louise (HILL) WILSON - they were married in 1839 in St. Thomas, Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK - Patience Louise HILL was born 1820 (possibly Sheppie) and died 1885 in Bermuda at the home of her daughter Rose (Wilson) STOLLARD. Other children of William and Patience L. WILSON: William Henry WILSON - Patience Louise WILSON, Alice Ann WILSON, Henry John WILSON, James WILSON and Rose WILSON. Henry John WILSON is said to have married a Susanna J. JEFFERIES in NY and they had a daughter Edith Louise WILSON born abt. 1872 in NY - mother may have died in childbirth. Henry John WILSON and his daughter Edith Louise WILSON came to Bermuda and lived - he then met and married Mary O. S. GIBSON and lived and died in Bermuda. I have never been able to find any information on Susanna J. JEFFERIES and what happened to her. We were always told that our Grandfather, Henry John WILSON used to receive important papers in the mail with wax seals on them. He would simply toss them into the fire unopened........WHY? I am visiting the Portsea area in July 2012 as this is the port I believe my Gr.Grandfather Henry John WILSON left - he was a wheelwright I believe. I will also visit Chatham & Kent. If there is anyone who can help with the names above I would so much like to speak with them or hear from them via email. Some of the info I have seen makes me believe that some of my ancestors were lighthouse keepers in the UK. Thanks for reading this very long query. Judy
