From on Friday, 14 January, 2011

Hello Elizabeth ,
I am a descendant of Latimer Burvill and Elizabeth Kemp through their daughter Hannah who married John Wilcox in 1825 and also through Angelina Burville b 1804 who married William Moulton. William’s first wife was Angelina’s elder sister Harriet. I have noticed an error in your information regarding Abraham Edwin Biggs wife Eliza Burvill. This Eliza died after childbirth on 26/6/1866 and is buried in the Booroondara Cemetery in Kew Victoria grave Ind A0354 with three of her children, Frederick Edwin, Walter Perry and Edwin Leslie. Abraham Edwin is buried in the adjacent grave Ind A0355 with a stillborn baby, born 8/6/1866. Abraham’s parents and several of his other children are also buried there in grave Ind A0357.
Do you have the actual marriage certificate for this second marriage for Eliza Burvill? Her husband Abraham did not pass away until 1889

From on Thu, 9 Mar 2006

Hi Elizabeth
I recently came across your website and it seems that 2 of Laughlin’s children are missing from you list, so I thought that I’d forward on the extra information.

On Laughlin’s death certificate there are 7 children:
1. Mary Therese 9th Feb 1859 – 22nd October 1936
1st Marriage: William McGrath 1882
1 Child: William Louglin McGrath 1884
2nd Marriage: William Jenkins 24 November 1889
6 Children:
Anne Catherine 19 June 1890
Robert c.1892
Joseph c.1894
John c.1896
Edith c. 1899
Francis c.1903

2. Margaret Philomena
3. John Joseph
4. Edward Andrew
5. Timothy Stephan
6. Sarah Laura c.1872
7. Anna Agatha
* Laughlin and Sarah arrived in Australia in 1857 through unassisted immigration onboard the ship the ‘John Barbour’
* Also Laughlin attempted to murder Sarah and thinking that he had succeeded actually took his own life by cutting his throat with a large butchers’ knife!
I have this information as they are my GG Parents and I have certificates, paper dates etc. Any information that you have to spare would also be welcome.
Have a great weekend ahead
Regards,
Alicia
