Family Friday, Vaughan
VAUGHAN AN OVERVIEW.
Today I was going to start with Henry Vaughan, my Great-great-grandfather but Henry has thrown me some very interesting problems and as such he will have to wait for his turn.
This is an overview of the family of Henry Vaughan and Charlotte Chasmar. And that there starts a mystery. I have been tracing this line for 30 years and found 10 children for them.
Elizabeth – 1841
Henry Edward – 1842
William Nathanial – 1845
Isabella Mary Ann – 1847
George W – 1852
John A - 1854
Catherine Charlotte – 1856
Rachel – 1864 d 1865.
Now there comes an interesting bit; I have a marriage transcript of one Edward Vaughan to Ester Maria Stansall on 30/12/1876. Edward’s parents, Henry Vaughan and Charlotte. No details of age are listed for either party but Henry’s occupation is correct. I have found Edward’s death and will order the certificate as the parents are listed as Henry and Charlotte. So did Henry and Charlotte have 11 children? Another mystery to figure out!
What I have been doing is trying to find as much as I can on each child and this is what I will present over the coming weeks. I then want (hope) that descendants will contact me.
I have used; Ancestry, Find My Past, Family Search, NSW Birth, Death and Marriages, TROVE, The Ryerson Index.
Any certificates and documents I hold will be marked *
Isabella is my ancestor and she too has an interesting story.
Bye for now, Lilian.
