From on Tuesday 20 May 2014
My grandfather was in fact Harry Lemon Allchin b.1886 Ballarat, d.1978 Sandringham, m. Elizabeth Irene Young in 1916. Elizabeth (Rene) was b. Ballarat 1889, d. 1993, Ormond, (at 104 years). Harrie and Rene had two children, my mother Lois Irene, b.1917, Ballarat, d. 2008, Camberwell, and a son Robert Lemon, b.1919, Ballarat, d. Brisbane (I'm not sure of the date, but he pre-deceased his mother by many years).
It is understandable that you have the wrong 'Harry', as my grandfather was known as 'Harrie' throughout his life (his mother's spelling choice for the name). It was not until after my grandfather's death that the family realised that Alfred had in fact made an error (deliberate or otherwise) when registering his son's name as 'Harry'.

10. Ethel Matilda (Effie) Allchin 1890, wed 1916 to Charles Reginald Meaker, 1891 #1040 son of Elizabeth Johnson wed 1890 #4855 to Francis Edward Meaker 1864 - 1930 #14134 aged 66, son of Francis/Frank Meaker aged 22, came Jul 1859 on the Telegraph with Jane Bartlett aged 20

Hi Elizabeth

Ellen Allchin was my great grandmother b. 1846 Oxford. She and Philip Popplestone Sampson had a tenth child Elsie May b. 4 May 1889 Clunes, wed Robert Muir Boyd 22 Oct 1913 d. 7 May 1985 Melbourne - they had five children.

Elizabeth Jean 27 July 1915 Ballarat d. 26 April 1998 never married
Lorna Evelyn 12 March 1917 m. 15 Nov 1941 James Hugh Hector Wood (d. 2001) d. 19 April 1999 Melbourne 2 children - my brother and me (I have 3 chn)
Nancy May 2 August 1918 m. Jack Stevens 1949 2 dau. (3 and 2 chn) Jack lives in Brighton
Noel 25 December 1920 m Doris Upham 2 children (son had 3 dau) d. 13 Oct 1987
Muriel Ellen 28 August 1922 m. Archibald Robert Caldwell 1947 1 child (2 children)

They live in a retirement village in Wheelers Hill.

I believe there is a note in a book at Ballarat about Charles Allchin seeing a corroboree on his way from Portland to Melbourne.
I visited a man in Mt Waverley who was writing a book on the Allchins and others in his line. I must find his name and address and ring him. He was looking for photos of the Allchin clan. Someone in Ballarat had just burnt a lot!! Still how much "clutter" can we keep?

Thankyou for the Cornwall site - I shall have to hog the computer and spend some time on it. And I'm reminded of all sorts of leads I should follow up! Not to mention a lot of tidying up and collation.

Cheers Darelle

Hi Eliza, I would like to thank you for your site, it has helped many of my Genealogical students find their families.
As for the Allchin Family you have some incorrect entries on your site, concerning them.
1. The son of Alfred Francis Allchin, named Harry Born in 1886, was not Harry Glover, who was the son of Edward Ebenezer Allchin and Selina Christina Glover. Alfred's son was Harry Lemon Allchin B 1886 #15264 Bulu - 1978 #19691 aged 91 years Sand
2. Frederick Milne Born 1853 registered at Portsea , Victoria. Never Married Charlotte Jessup. The Frederick who Married Charlotte Jessup was Born in Adelaide, South Australia.
Frederick Milne Born 1853 Married Mary Ann Vial. They had the following Children registered at Ballarat:
8 children 1 AlFred James Allchin Born 1875 #6757
2 Frederick Charles Allchin Born 1877 #2965 -
3. Francis William Laurence Allchin Born 1879 #20890
4. Walter Edward Allchin Born 1883 #6727
5. Victor George Allchin Born 1886 #7629
6. Ellen Ethel May Allchin Born 1888 #17604
7. Elsie May Allchin Born 1892 #714 born at Ballarat East
8. Violet Eileen Allchin Born 1895 #9201 registered at Ballarat East
You have miss read the Birth death and Marriage records of Victoria, like most people I have came across do. The Place listed in the Marriage Registers are not the Place of Marriage unless stated to be the Place of Marriage. The Place stated is the Birth place of the first Party. So if you are looking under the Grooms Name the place would be his Birth place, and vice versa in the case of the bride.
I am not related to this family but know a lady who is, she mentioned your mistake, so I thought I would let you know.
Regards Margaret Silva
Thankyou for your kindness in writing - and please pass on my appreciation to your concerned student-researcher.

I have changed the way you show the date, to put a number symbol, #, and then the registration number next to the date.
This is in order to be consistent in the way dates and registration number pairs are presented on my pages.
