John Catamole

From on Sat, 22 Jul 2006
Hi Elizabeth,
I was just having another look at your site, my husband is down from John Catamole's wife, from her first husband. John's mother's maiden name should be Frisk, not O`Neil, which was his wife's maiden name. He arrived on 4 Feb 1849 on the Eden, as an exile from Pentonville aged 22 years old, for stealing 2 brass candlesticks. He married on 6 October 1853 at Timboon, Victoria and had a son on 24 Sep 1855 called Charles, who never married and so the name was not carried down.
Mary had four children from her first husband of whom my husband is down from her third child, a daughter Maria McCarthy, who married William Henry Vingo Bottrell. Their eldest daughter was also called Maria and she married a Dunstan.
Regards from Margaret Dunstan, Rowville.

From on Tuesday, 7 October, 2008
Hi Elizabeth
I was researching the Catamoles and their connection to the Lloyds and came across your geocities web site. I am sorry to put the cat among the pidgeons but-
The James Lloyd you had marrying Eliza Catamole is not the right one - that James died in 1860 Melbourne. The correct James does not have a birth registration but his death in 1920 puts his birth c 1857, his parents as Frederick Lloyd and Jane Gray, and he is buried beside his married daughter, Daisy Jane Cairns in Camperdown Cemetery.
Hope this doesn't create too many problems for you.
Regards David.
