Hello everyone,
I am researching the Lightbody family from Tullyrone Northern Ireland and I have been told that one of the family may have went to Victoria.

Many Thanks Wayne,
That is a big help.

Hello Gail, try these...
According to the DIGGER Marriage Index of Victoria 1921-1942.
1. Margaret Theodora Vivian LIGHTBODY m. Keith Herbert Cheslett CHARMAN 1925.
2. Irene Margaret LIGHTBODY m. Leonard Arvon WILLIAMS 1938.
Thank you Heather I will look in to this.
Any assistance on the following would be much appreciated. Some time ago I hit the proverbial "Brickwall" re my wife's GGGrandmother.

Sarah Melen was born in Enstone, Oxfordshire, England in 1832 to John Melen and Catherine Gardner.
Sarah arrived in Adelaide on 12 September 1849 accompanied by her mother Catherine on the "Duke of Bronte". Siblings, Caroline, Jane and Edward arrived in Adelaide 17 July 1849 on the "Madawaska"..

The first record of any event relating to Sarah is a birth entry for a John Richard Melen in 1853 the father listed as Richard Youl. John Richard died 3 months later and the death certificate shows the father as Richard Youl (Surgeon).
There is an entry on the IGI for the birth of Albert William Sheppard (my wife's GGrandfather) b: 2 November 1861 and Christened on 16 November 1862 at All Saints,St. Kilda. Parents are listed as Albert William Sheppard and Sarah Anne.
The next record is the birth of Evelina Beatrice Sheppard in 1866 and a death entry for 1869. The death record lists the parents as Albert Michael Sheppard and Ann Sheppard, formerly Melen. The birth record lists the father as Albert Sheppard (32 y.o.) born in Frome,Somersetshire.

The next record is a marriage of Seraphina Annie (aka. Sarah) Melen to a Joseph Sloman in 1870. Seraphina's parents are cited as John Sheppard? and Catherine Gardner. Number of children listed for Seraphina is 3 living and 2 dead (this ties with known children). The certificate states that Seraphina was widowed in 1865 and was born in Oxfordshire.
The next record is the death of Sarah Sheppard in 1896 where the parents are listed as Fa: Melen and Mo: Unknown. Children are listed as Albert 38 y.o. Frances 35 y.o. Mary (dead) and Beatrice (dead). The informant was listed as Frances MacDonald (daughter).

There is a death record for Frances Lucy Riverina McDonald in the NSW BDM in 1957 citing parents as Albert and Sarah Sheppard.

The next record which I have is the death of Albert Sheppard in 1906 listing parents as Albert and Sarah Sheppard. Age at death of 46.
Children listed for Albert are May (Maggie) 17 y.o., Albert Alfred 16y.o., Alexander 14 y.o. and Claude 12 y.o. Spouse is listed as Flora MacGregor married for 24 years.
Albert is buried in Melbourne Cemetery in the same plot as his mother Sarah, sister Mary (Foley) and niece Effie MacDonald.

I have since been able to find that Mary Sheppard listed on Sarah's death Certificate married John Foley, in NSW, and she died as Mary Foley in July 1888 at 29 years of age. This means that she was born abt. 1859.

There are no records for the marriage of Sarah to Albert Sheppard or for the births of Mary or Frances or the death of Albert (Sarah's husband?) in 1865 which does seem strange to me. It is also strange that Seraphina, in her marriage to Sloman gives her father as John Sheppard although mothers name is correct as Catherine Gardner.
Also why does Sarah die as Sarah Sheppard?
Hi Everyone.
My brickwall is George Fenn Pretty,born c1792 died 1870 buried at Middleton, Suffolk,UK. I have been unable to find positive info on any of his forebears. Any help would be gratefully received.
