Henry Richard Dorman

From Ann - see her letter below -The marriage cert for Henry & Sarah Ann ARNOLD, aged 29 in 1863, born Celmsfod Essex. father Richard DORMAN, mother Ann PHILBRICK. Henry was a miner, father Richard was stonemason. Witnessed by Daniel West....signed, & Sarah West....marked.
Henry Richard DORMAN born 3 Dec 1833, bap 10 Aug 1834, Chelmsford, Essex. son of Richard DORMAN who married Ann Filbrick/Philbrick 3 Dec 1831 Surrey.
From MacCullock Website - Henry Richard Dorman was the eldest son of Ann Pilbrick christened on 11 November 1810 at Woodham Walter, Essex England. She was the daughter of Spurgin John Philbrook and Martha Cole. Ann Philbrook married on 3 December 1831 at Saint George the Martyr, Southwark, Surrey, to Richard Dorman c1807 - 1853.
Ann Philbrook appeared on the census of 6 June 1841 at Duke Street, Chelmsford, Essex, as age 30 and she was born in the county.
She appeared on the census of 30 March 1851 at Railway Street, Chelmsford, Essex, as Wife, age 41, birthplace Woodham Walter, Essex.
She appeared on the census of 7 April 1861 at 26 Brunswick Place, Shoreditch, Middlesex, as Anne Dorman, Mother-in-law of James Oakes, widow, age 50, birthplace Maldon, Essex, and she was a Ladies Nurse.
She died in 1864; and her death was recorded at Tendring Registration district, Essex, in the June quarter 1864.
Used FamilySearch to check birth year of first child and an Extracted Entry shows this birth date and he was Christened: 10 Aug 1834
Sarah Ann is also christened 10 Aug 1834 at the same place - First Meeting House Baddow Lane-Independent Or Conchelmsford, Chelmsford, Essex, with the unlikely birth 6 months after big brother, suggesting the two may be twins, or his birth year should be the more credible 1832 (one year after marriage)
Miriam and Joseph were both Christened 11 Jun 1837 at First Meeting House Baddow Lane-Independent Or Conchelmsford, Chelmsford, Essex.
Ann is recorded as having 8 babies in 10 years, with only one infant death - WOW.

William Dosser


From on Monday, 3 September 2012
Hello Elizabeth, my name is Peter Dosser. I believe Helen Beaton born Longwood Euroa 1846 is my great grandmother. My father was born William Ernest Sullivan the son of William Charles Sullivan and his second wife Cecilia Hawkins, who passed away when my father was about 6weeks old. He was raised by Fred & Winnie Dosser.
I have recently started to put together the family tree, Starting from Michael Sullivan and Ann McCarthy,Michael born about 1810 immigrated on the Ann Miln in 1849.
So far 72 on the family tree. I wonder if you have any information on the where abouts that Helen Beaton and William Thomas were laid to rest.
best wishes Peter A Dosser
