red mail Robert HAWKES married Sarah FISHER sailed to Australia 1848 but where were their children born?
Newcastle upon Tyne (Updated from Jan 2015 by new information June 2017) Hello Hawkes researchers... My 3x great grandparents were in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1839 and have business listings in trade directories in shipping mahogany etc...and are listed on the 1841 Census with their five children (baby born in 1839)! Then have one more child and sail on the 'Gratitude' from London in 1848 to live in Adelaide, South Australia. For years I could find ABSOLUTELY no records of their births, marriage, birth of first four children (parents and 4 listed as non locals on Newcastle census). Then someone sent me a notice of intent to marry in St Ebbes stating Robert was from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. They are Robert HAWKES born about 1802 Sarah FISHER born about 1806 estimated married 1824 .... Children ... John Henry Mason HAWKES b. About 1827; Elizabeth Ann HAWKES b. About 1829; Charles Flaxman HAWKES b. About 1833; Robert Joseph HAWKES b. About 1836; Jonathan Lea HAWKES b. 1/4/1839 Pilgrim St Newcastle and George William HAWKES b Oct 1842. This intent to marry led me to the Parish and the kind researchers sent me marriage and details of a birth and death of a baby girl (Thirza Hawkes 1825) they then left the parish. My brickwall is finding where Robert and Sarah moved to because the next four children were not born in Gloucester, and not in Newcastle so somewhere along the next 14 years they were living somewhere in between..... John Henry Mason Hawkes (the eldest) was only called John in census and is my direct line (great great grandfather) and married in Adelaide, South Australia, to Frances Sarah Ann Symonds (from Flagon Rd Deptford London), had four children (the eldest was my great grandfather James Symonds Hawkes who married in Adelaide, South Australia to Jane Codling. If anyone else is tracing this family line of Hawkes and can solve my brickwall of where the four children were born I will be so happy... Someone has suggested that they may have been born and living offshore in one of UKs colonies while trading in mahogany? I have updated this post because having done DNA I have had confirmation of Roberts birth and parents and siblings in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire as his brother John emigrated to Victoria, Australia and one of my new found cousins has contacted me as a match.

I am seeking information about items named in the will of Maria BOWELL, nee HAMILTON, the wife of Charles Bowell, of Cranham Terrace, Oxford. If any descendants of Maria (I am her 4 x great granddaughter) know about her will, therefore what it contained I'd be pleased to hear from them. The items are of no monetary value, but obviously of sentimental value to relatives.

red mail Edward Webster Morris-printer/bookbinder/stationer

Charles and Albert Smith were orphans and lived with a very strict uncle in Oxford England. We have no knowledge what the parents names where or when they were born other than to estimate about 1860's. At the age of about 17, the boys decided to run away and made their way to Southhampton where they hoped to get work on a ship and work their way to another country. Somehow they got separated, Albert ended up on a ship going to Canada and Charles landed in Cape Town. At some stage he returned to England and got married and later returned to South Africa and died 1904. At stage in his later life an Anglican minister in Ladysmith saw an advertisement in the overseas church magazine, to trace the relatives of Albert Smith who died in Canada. contact in response to the advert was never made and we do not know if Albert had any children or if he ever visited England again. I am hopefully optimistic of some obscure info being found.
