Hello everyone :)
I'm hoping some-one can help!
I have a brick wall on my GGrandfather Thomas Guy Vaughton
born ca1820.Married 1849 to Mary Ann Turner born ca1830. It says on the IGI that he was born in Blakiston Sth Australia. but am not sure if this is correct..
I Am trying to find out who his parents were??
There is some thought that they came from Birmingham in the UK.
The Biographical Index of South Australian between 1836-1885 which shows All Adults above the age of 15yrs in that Time period doesn't show the Parents in SA..
THOMAS GUY"S Children were:
Twin Girls 1850-1850
William Thomas 1854-1931
John Disher 1856-1902
Mary Jane 1859
Charles Ashdown 1864 my Grandfather
Robert Guy 1866
Annie Laurie Leticia 1870
George Edward 1875
I Believe that most of his children were born in the Bugle Ranges Sth Aust.
I've been doing a look around on the net for you and found a few things that I've put together on a word doc for you.
I am one for challenges so I will keep this in vogue as I have many sites up my sleeve plus I index and transcribe .
If you have down loaded the doc, then I will delete it from here.
Keep at it - one day just one day it will fall into place
Still more may be this is will help a little more
Thats cool ill leave the rest up to you so that you can enjoy the challengers that lie ahead so that you can learn where and how to find different things.
When you goto S Rs be sure to also look in the shipping archives.
It's been a please to help you along your way.
