Thanks to all who have responded about my Thomas Hawkins.
Thomas' parents are James Hawkins & Jane Robinson married in Stoke Dameral in
The family story says Thomas went to Australia and had a sheep farm. I hired a researcher
and he didn't come up with that. He sent me several death certificates. One that
seemed likely said that he was married but with no information. Years married would have
put him in Devon. Also a Thomas Hawkins who fit his age arrived in NSW in Sidney on the
ship Peterborough age 28. This is on Reel 2140 and Reel 489. I cannot or do not know how
to order these reels from the LDS Family History Center. Perhaps this would say if a wife
came with him. Can someone help there?
I found two Thomas James Hawkins on ancestry.com
and finally did click on the red for
volume 5b and the page numbers and came up with the possibly of Elizabeth Ann Martin, Anne
Wells and Francis Amelia Manners.
I will do as one on the list suggested and just order a marriage certificate with the
stipulation of his parents names. Hopefully I can get the right certificate.
Anyone looking for the name Weatherdon? I have found his sister, Clara, married to John
Weatherdon and found them on the 1881 census but cannot find them on the online 1901
Thanks again for all your help. The list is wonderful.
