Richard Dann

From on Tue, 25 Jul 2006
Dear Elizabeth, Saw your website which included my gg grandparents, Richard Dann & Susannah (Gilbert), and wondered what is your connection.
You also included as one of their offspring, an Ellen Dann (sic) who coincidently arrived on the same ship ("Norfolk") in 1860. Her maiden name was either Dunne (marriage certificate, 1860) or Dunn (children's birth certificates) and she probably died in 1919 at Ballarat
Regards, Ian Dann
Thu, 10 Aug 2006, Dear Elizabeth, Another thing I noticed on your website was the arrival of a James Dann in July 1865 on the "Ocean Empress". The marriage of Sarah Ann Dann to John Taylor on 1/12/1863 at Castlemaine, however, was witnessed by her brother James but I don't know when he arrived in Victoria.
Also, Richard Dann's mother was Mary Abnett and not Sarah as on his death certificate. Her mother's name was Sarah though.
Sat, 12 Aug 2006
Mary aged 25 & Sarah 19 arrived in Victoria on the "Herald" in June 1859 as Assisted British Immigrants.
Regards, Ian Dann
