I am looking for information in relation to Henry W Samuels he died in January 1907 and I believe he was born in 1840. On BDM NSW it says that his father is Henry and mother is unknown on death information. He is married my great x 3 aunt Jane Whalley in 1863 in Sydney. Thanks.

What a wonderful find. It has filled out names into people altho it doesn’t continue my branch past Peter Mark Ready and Sarah Ann Benson. They were my great great grandparents,by way of their daughter Elizabeth Hannah,who married John James Smith (aka Thomas Smith).Their daughter Mabel Mildred lambert was my grandmother. She married Frederick Eager Lambert , my father Donald Caitcheon Eager Lambert was their elder son.

Hi Lynne,
I have received some correspondance from a lady who has been speaking with my nan (i’ve got the whole family talking about some photos trying to work out their names the lady’s name is Margaret Burns nee Price who is Mary Hurrell’s Grandaughter (Mary Hurrell – daughter of John and Ellen Hurrell). She sent me the same photo that you have above with all the names of the lady’s so i thought i would share with you.

In your photo which is the second from the top of this page;

Top L – R; Ellen Mathilda Hurrell, Mary Price (nee Hurrell), Anne Johnston (nee Hurrell)
Front L- R; Eliza Mary Sanders (nee Hurrell), Lucy Jane Sanders (nee Hurrell).

Jan, I believe your correct with your conclusion of the twins names, i have also came across these two names, and wondered the same thing.

I love putting the names to the faces its challenging but very rewarding. Thank you Lynne for providing this space to help locate the names.

Kind Regards,

I am not related to Ann or John, however are you aware of the relationship between Ann and Henry Perts? They applied to marry in May 1822 and appear to have been together for a number of years (until about 1828). Henry was listed in the 1825 census with Ann as “his wife” although it does not appear they were formally married. She appeared for him in 1828 when he was charged and convicted of selling spirits illicitly. I am extremely interested in knowing all I can about Henry and wondered if you had any information about him at all.
