HANNAH HUTCHINS AND HENRY SAMUELS

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.

COLONIAL MOTHERS

THE SAG Newsletter reports that Dr Tanya Evans, now of Macquarie University, is engaged in researching the history of motherhood in early Colonial Australia and Britain between 1750 and 1850. The focus has caught my fancy. My Mind seems to have taken a disproportionate amount of time in recovering from the Change of year and the Summer Season and I haven’t been able to get my mental historical  hard drive functioning at all but this little article has begun to bring the ghosts back to life again. Dr Evans is asking for assistance from any who have worked extensively on their family histories and have details of mothers from these early times. Dept of Modern History at Macquarie University, Sydney would have the contact details for you.

As for me, it has me thinking of all the Mothers of Mine who and the folkore I have been given. The Scottish Widow who was asked to be Laird of the Clan but came out here with her children instead.  Johannah Ready Prendergast, whose son John was sent as a convict to Government House at Windsor where his mother was Housekeeper. I wonder often about Johannah who was 47 when convicted in Ireland. She tried to have another son and his family sent out but failed. When John’s marriage failed and he became excessively odd in his behaviour and was sentenced to Moreton Bay, Johannah disappears from the records. I like to think she followed him.

Ann Moran and Hannah Hutchings/Hitchens. What was it like for them to be mothers here in the early 19th Century ? Young convict women. Ann had 5 children to John Curtis who was already husband and father to a family in England and had attempted to have them brought to him.  Hannah was recorded as a ‘ loose woman’ on the convict ship THE BROTHERS. How did her life as a mother develop from that starting point and from the death of her first husband in the Lunatic Asylum, Liverpool ?

HANNAH’S FAMILY

From Penny and Marilyn I have further info.

To begin with, Phil Ready provided the following information. 

Hannah Hitchens first married Thomas Benson ( who is officially and possibly my ancestor ) and they had 2 daughters MARY ANN and SARAH ANN.

HANNAH HUTCHINS

PENNY  SENT THESE DETAILS :
 
  •  
    • Greatly interested as  Hannah Hitchens/Hutchings is my gt gt grandmother by her second marriage to Henry Samuels. Their daughter Louisa Matilda married to Jabez Brown was my gt grand mother.I have just this very day being trying to trace both parts of the familie’s movements in Victoria and NSW. When was Thomas Benson admitted to Liverpool asylum and why? Hannah and Henry’s 1st child Hannah was born in 1832 within days of his death and they did not mary until 1836 with permission of the govt. Hannah did not get her Conditional Pardon until 1838.Henry was also a convict.
      Cheers Penny
  •  
    • The plot thickens!!!
    • No I don’t have much on Hannah Samuels jnr/Kilfoyle except Victorian death certs for her and husband Joseph (1889 & 1905).in Victoria.

      I also have dc’s for all her Samuels siblings except Ellen and a bc for Benson 1/2 sister Mary Ann born 1827 Lower Minto.

      Next step is to obtain a transcript of her birth cert. I feel there must have been a wee bit of a relationship overlap to say the least whilst Thomas was languishing in Liverpool insane asylum! His death cert has occupation – LUNATIC!

      I had a quick look on nsw BDM and saw the 1833 Jane Benson death but no mother is given. Where is the info from? It could be another Benson. I found Glen Mc Kenzie’s family tree on Rootsweb 2002 – World Connect a good guide to Samuels that got me going.  @   GLNMCK@HOTMAIL.COM 1927760   There are some inaccuracies eg Henry Samuels senior place of birth.

 
MARILYN ADDED THIS INFORMATION REGARDING HER DESCENT FROM SARAH ANN BENSON AND HER SECOND HUSBAND GEORGE MOORE:
  • I am descended from their 3rd child, Henry Thomas Moore who married Ellen McPhee, then their 2nd child Leslie Francis Moore who married Gladys May Robinson, then their 1st child Gladys Ivy Moore who married my father, Allen William Roberts. Mum and Dad only lived 3 streets away from each other in Lilyfield and knew each other from childhood. You would know that George was the 1st son of George Moore, convict of the ‘Asia’ 1822 and Ann Tracey, who came free on ‘ Elizabeth ’ 1818.  They married in 1827 and George was born in 1828.
  • Thanks for the new info and Penny has raised a few questions actually.  I hadn’t noticed but I have a child, Jane Benson, registered born and died in 1833 to Hannah and Thomas Benson, besides the child Penny mentioned, Hannah, born in 1832 (parents Hannah and Henry Samuels).  I hadn’t noticed the cross over of dates.  Will have to investigate further.  Perhaps ‘Jane’ and ‘Hannah’ are the same child?  Is it possible to ask Penny if she has anything on ‘Hannah’ except for a birth? I don’t have anything further on Thomas Benson’s death, only the BDM registered in Liverpool .  If Penny has a certificate she knows more than I at this time.  Of course, back in the early days asylums were also classified for use as ‘benevolent’, for not just the ‘ insane’ but also for people with invalidism or ill-health, or as paupers.  A cert would give some idea of his ‘condition’.

LYNNE WRITES : Sarah Ann was married in 1851 to Peter Mark Ready. They then go to Victoria in 1852 with their baby daughter. Hannah being only one year younger than Sarah it does seem likely there  is a connection in the Victorian experience. They lived in White Hills and then Back Creek near Amherst ( ah! this then became known as Talbot in 1861) It was there in 1862 that Peter Mark ready fell down a mine shaft and died.

We had always pictured Sarah as alone in Victoria with her 5 children but I doubt that after reading Penny’s emails. She married George Moore very quickly and returned to Sydney. Peter Mark was also known as Hogan ( the 2nd husband of his mother)
