My great-grandfather was Frederick William Hickey who was born in London in 1832, and went to South Africa at an early age. He left there in the early 1850's for the Australian goldfields, settling near Bendigo in Victoria. His father James died in Capetown in 1853. His mother's death however has not been located. His mother was Sarah Hickey (nee Banton). Others in the family of James and Sarah (nee Banton) Hickey were: Eliza ch. in London in 1828 and married John David Enright in Cape Town in 1841, Louisa ch. in London in 1828, Mary-Ann ch. London in 1828, Sarah ch. in London in 1828, Charlotte ch. in London in 1830, George b. Cape Town.
Frederick William Hickey married Mary Anne Elizabeth Hooper d. of Robert Hooper and Jane (nee Burns) Hooper in 1859 at Eaglehawk in Victoria (Australia).
I would be pleased to hear from anyone who knows anything of any members of these families.
Robina (nee Turner) Bamford, married Thomas Bamford in 1881 in Victoria (Australia). Four children were born to this couple, the youngest of whom was Agnes Annie born in 1892. Thomas Bamford died in 1897, and three children born before Agnes Annie died not long before their father lost his life. Nothing is known of Robina (nee Turner) Bamford after 1902 when whe was named in her father's will. An A.A. McAlister is named as a beneficaiary of her uncle's will made in the early 1930's; perhaps this was Agnes Annie (nee Bamford). Nothing more is known of these two ladies, but there is a belief that they may have gone to South Africa. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who might have come across these names in their research.
