William Dunn and Martha Chaston

From on Thu, 6 Sep 2007
Dear Elizabeth,
I have just noted your entries for the Chaston family on your web page, and as Martha Chaston nee Waller was a sister to my great grandmother Kate Sarah Cox nee Waller, I can give you a little more information on her.
Martha was born 16 April 1832 at Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk and baptized at St. James, Bury St. Edmunds on 10 May 1832, being the daughter of Westrop William Waller and Amelia nee Cabburn who married at Bury St. Edmunds in 1830. Martha married William Dunn Chaston at St. James Cathedral, Melbourne on 10 January 1856, and after William's death on 17 April 1883, she remarried on 14 July 1886 to Francis Gardiner Davis, and she died at Ballarat on 1 March 1903.
The Chaston children were William Cabburn (1857-1861), Herbert Harry (1860-1901), Ernest Edward (1866-1947) and there is a daughter Elsie May mentioned on one of the death certificates, but for whom I have not found any further information.
Herbert Harry and Quirina Chaston had four children, the others being Mabel (1890-1980) and Ernest Edgar (1892-1977). Quirina died 23 May 1956 and is I believe the daughter of Elizabeth Toy and John Pearce as you note. Ernest Edward and Lillian Chaston had a daughter Daisy Doris born 1890 (later Mrs. Swift) and a son Cedric Charles (1893-1958).
Jemima Mary Ann Waller/Waite had a further two daughters - Edith Alice, Mrs. Maloney (1861-1937) and Annie, Mrs. Capuano (1863-1936), whose births don't appear to have been registered. William Henry Waite died at Berwick, Vic. in 1868 and Jemima (or Annie as she was known in the family) remarried to George Luckins and had further children. The Waite children grew up with their Cox cousins as they did not get on with their stepfather, especially after their mother died in 1878. I now live in the house built for Arthur Charles Waite on his marriage in 1888 to Emily Redenbach.
If you would like any further details or clarification of any item, please let me know.
Sincerely, Neil Cox,
