The above is supposed to be my 2nd Great Grandfather and results of my FTDNA family finder test came through with a match to a man in England as 2nd -4th cousin whose great grandfather who was also iliegitmate. This man has also had his YDNA done and the top matches are SMITH.
His great great grandmother had been working in the HUDSON household in Blyth, Nottinghamshire, in 1851 and we are assuming that she met the father of her son while working there. She went home to Bawtry in West Riding of Yorkshire to have her son in 1858. Recent research has discovered that there are a lot of HUDSON and SMITH in the Blyth/Bawtry area.
Samuel Hudson/Hutson SMITH travelled to Australia in the 1850's and ended up on the goldfields in Victoria around Fryerstown where he met a certain a young woman and she supposedly had 5 children with him from 1859 - 1867. I recently discovered that he did not father the last child born in 1867 and he is supposed to have returned to England around 1864.
Can anyone help me with this?
Henry died aboard ship at Gibraltar in the second quarter of 1861. Civil registration of deaths in Gibraltar did not begin until January 1869.
I established possible places of burial in Gibraltar and found Email addresses but they passed my enquiry from one place to another until I was back where I started not having located a burial.
There is a death certificate issued by Lincoln Registration District in third quarter of 1861 but the GRO historical index says this was a 3 year old child.
I had thought that if pay was owing to Henry when he died there may have been a record of this payment to a relative but following up on this thought at present is not practicable.

I would suggest that you obtain Henry's death certificate; the informant of his death to the local registrar might be a relative and you would have a location of death to see if he is buried in any nearby cemeteries.
I was first alerted to Henry’s existence because he appeared
on the 7 April 1861 census but I have yet to find any 1841 or 1851 census
entries. Nor can I find either a baptism or burial.
His service history is quite detailed. He enlisted with the
13th company, Chatham Division of Royal Marines at Halifax 30 Mar
1854 and was given a character reference by William Charles BURLEY who said he
had known him for “a length of time”.
He was then a labourer said to have been born at Mansfield,
Nottinghamshire 28 Nov 1835
He served on HMS Pylades 16 Jan 1855 to 30 Jan 1856. This
entry says his usual place of residence was Lincoln. (There is a large family
of PEPPERDINEs in Lincoln four of them called Henry but all accounted for, having
died between 1871 and 1933).
He served a Court Marshall sentence of 42 days May – June 1857
On 29 Nov 1958 joined HMS Ariadne and was awarded a good conduct badge 29 Nov
1860 aged 25.
31 March 1861 discharged at Gibraltar and immediately re-entered
in ship’s books on 1 April where he served until discharged dead 2 May 1861.
Any suggestions as to how I might discover more about this
individual would be most welcome as he currently does not appear to be related
to anyone. Was he born at Mansfield in 1835 possibly with a different surname?
I'll drink to that!

Does anyone have anything on this family?
The marriage to Elizabeth FIDLER is speculation - seems too early.
