Joseph Buck

From jacworld on Tue, 15 Feb 2005, email bounced 19 May 2009

Elizabeth,
Thanks for your swift response.
I believe that Joseph (Job) Buck and his wife Sarah (nee Burnett) arrived in Melbourne aboard the Alhambra in 1869. They brought with them 2 sons, Joseph and Robert (my great great grand father) . They came from N.Z. after a period of gold-mining. Originally Joseph was from Gloucestershire and Sarah from Edinburgh and they married in Auckland.
Even if you could point me generally in the direction of the Droscher family genealogist it would save me a lot of unnecessary phone calls. Regards
Rob Buck.


Mr J Buck aged 31, came May 1869 on the Alhambra with Mrs Buck aged 25, Mary Buck aged 7 and Sarah Buck aged 5 - does match any family in Vic records.

Joseph Buck 1820 - 1898 #13698 aged 78, son of unknown Virtue and Job Buck, died at Rheola, and Sarah Burnett came c1869 and lived at Inglewood

Hi
I found your site pioneer families on the net. I am a descendant of Arnall and Elisabeth Buckle. My great grandmother Elisabeth married Domenico Franchi. In your list of their children my grandmother is omitted. She was Mary Ann. Not the twin. Grandmother was named after the twin and was born in 1876. She left home when she was near 18. She married William Bathurst a miner. I am hoping that you could include grandmother in your list please. She was a grand lady, a true pioneer. She and William came to Western Australia in 1898 to the Kalgoorlie goldfields.
Kind regards Phyllys Donald nee Brindley. My mother was Olive Brindley nee Bathurst.

Thankyou Phyllis, thanks to your letter I searched surname variants and found Domenico was also Dominico, thus finding the listings for the deaths of both twins, as well as births for Mary and William

Also found that Domenico Fanchi aged 18 came Feb 1864 on the Blanche Moore, only one of this surname on the ship list. And - 1854 Blanche Moore, extreme clipper, 1787 tons - from Ships built by John McKay at his East Boston shipyard.
Descriptions at The Clipper Ships -
The Blanche Moore made the November 10, 1863 sailing from Liverpool to Melbourne in 94 days and then returned to England by way of India and back around the Cape of Good Hope and signed off her crew at London on October 26, 1864.
