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.

  1. I believe that the Henry W Samuels married to Jane Whalley is my husband’s great grandfather.
    Jane and Henry were both buried at Balmain cemetery but unfortunately it is no longer there.
    Henry had a son James Charles Samuels who was my husband’s grandfather.
    Could you let me have more information on Jane Whalley and I will be happy to send to you more
    information on the Samuels family.
    The first Henry was married to Hannah Hutchins who was previously married to Thomas Benson.
    They are both buried i.e. Hannah and Henry at Camperdown cemetery, New Town, Sydney.

    1. Hi Pamela. I don’t have any information on Jane Whalley , unfortunately. I do appreciate the extra details you have sent and perhaps one of the others will have the info you are looking for. Yrs, L.

    2. Pamela! I’ve just checked my database & think we’ve been in contact before – before my Windows PC crashed that is. RU the wife of Lawrence John > s.o. Lawrence Ernest> s.o. James Charles > s.o. Henry William? If so, my father is UR hubby’s 3rd cousin which in turn makes UR Lawrence my 3rd-once removed. Cheryl (Qld)

  2. Hello Pamela & Tracey! I am downline from Henry’s brother (James) and have gathered quite a lot on this side of my family tree. I believe that Jane Whalley died suddenly of heart failure on 20 Dec 1903 at home in Lambert Street, Camperdown – aged 58 (b: c. 1845). Judging by the many memorial tributes from her children in 1904 & 1907, she was a much loved mother & wife of William. William placed his one & only tribute to his wife in 1904, not long before he died of a long and painful illness, on 21 Jan 1904 at 15 Lambert Street, Camperdown.
    I found 2 possible births for Jane Whalley. 1) 12 Oct 1845 Padiham, Lancashire to John & Selina. 2) 1 Dec 1844 Blackburn, Lancashire to David & Elizabeth. The NSW BDM Death register has ‘WILLIAM’ as Jane’s father, but that could refer to husband William Samuels. If you purchase the marriage certificate of William & Jane, it ‘MAY’ show her parent’s names. Hope this helps, Cheryl (Qld)
