From on Monday, 19 October, 2009
My wife’s grandmother was known as Olivia Stuart Enderby and also Olivia Stuart Dorman. She was born in Maryborough Victoria on the 25th July 1891 to Alice Margaret Stuart Enderby and supposedly John Edward Dorman. Some records show Olivia went by either surname of Enderby or Dorman and I also note that she was born a year before Alice and John were married. I am particularly interested to find out who her true father was and seek your assistance in this matter. I also note that I am unable to find any record of Olivia’s birth under either surname at the Victorian registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

3. Amy Catherine Ward Enderby 1875 #131 wed 1899 #5787 to John Strachan Mcintosh

From on Saturday, 11 July, 2009
Hello Elizabeth
Just came across your page which I believe has an error: You have both Kate Ward Enderby and her niece Amy Catherine Ward Enderby married to Jacob Cross with the same date.
Kate Ward Enderby wed 1899 #5787 Vic, to John Strachan McIntosh, son of Alexander McIntosh and Jessie Carver Strachan. John was born in Cape Town, SA c1866. Their son Alexander Downs McIntosh, was registered 1901 #23772 at Albert Park.
Kate died 9th January 1939 in North Carlton and is buried with her husband (died 8 June 1934) in the Fawkner Cemetery in grave C/C C-960. John was a clerk and later teacher - they lived in South Camberwell. As far as I can see, John and Kate only had one son: Alexander Downs McIntosh, obviously named for Kate's brother-in-law. Alexander was a commercial teacher and stayed in the South Camberwell area and as far as I know did not marry.
Regards, Jeanette

Jeremiah Benjamin Enders

From Enders One and EndersFamily, Jeremiah Benjamin Enders 15 Jul 1828, born in Williamsville, Erie County, New York, the 4th child of Philip Enders born 15 Aug 1790, wed 1821 to Anna Hummel born 16 Aug 1806, in Pennsylvania and had 13 chn - Sarah Enders 11 Mar 1822, Lucy Enders 26 Jul 1824, Samuel Enders 25 Jul 1826, Jeremiah Enders 15 Jul 1828, George W Enders 1830, Elizabeth Enders 1833, Norman Enders 29 Dec 1836, Mary Ann Enders 2 Mar 1838, Harrison Enders 1 Apr 1841, Martha Enders 7 Mar 1843, Almeda Enders 1853, Nannetta Enders 1845 and Franklin Enders 1847.
In the late 1840’s Jeremiah went West to the California Gold Rush. After a year or so on the California Gold Fields, Jeremiah and his brother sailed for Australia, as gold had now been discovered there sometime around 1850/1851.
Jeremiah arrived in Sydney Australia in 1852 and first went to the Bathurst goldfields in central New South Wales, then to Victoria at the McIvor gold fields (Heathcote area) and finally to Fryers Creek gold field. This area is now known as Castlemaine and is in central Victoria.

Mrs Ann Cumrie aged 30 came Aug 1853 on the Catherine Glen with Alexander Cumrie aged 27, George Cumrie aged 24 and Martha Cumrie aged 23 - Martha was born in 1827 in Gargunnock, Stirlingshire, Scotland.
Jeremiah Enders wed 5 Nov 1855 to Martha Ann Comrie, at the Church of England Parsonage in Kyneton some 21 miles from Fryers Creek, Kyneton, being where Martha had settled with her sister and brothers, and Jeremiah was a storekeeper, according to the occupation listed on his wedding certificate.
Norman Enders came 25 Jun 1854 to Melbourne, on the Albert Franklin ship, 490 tons, O. Longo Commander, from New York 22nd March, Passengens cabin Mrs Hall and two children, Mr and Mrs Hamilton, Messrs Murchanson, Nicholson, and thirty-eight in the second cabln. Hussey, Bond, and Hale, agents.
Norman's signature appears as a witness, on Jeremiah’s & Martha's wedding certificate.
Jeremiah and Martha lived at Fryers Creek for approximately a year after their marriage before moving to Kyneton. By late 1856 Jeremiah, who was known most of his life in Australia as “Yankee Tom”, had obtained a half share in a sawmill located on the Coliban River just outside Trentham, known as Clowes Forrest in those days. In 1857 he bought out his partner Henry Morton and the sawmill became known as the “Union Steam Sawmills” – Upper Coliban. The sawmill is reputed to have been the first steam sawmill in Victoria. Timber that was cut from the surrounding forests was transported by bullock teams hitched to timber jinkers into Kyneton where J.B had a timber yard. Later when the rail came to Kyneton the timber was carted to the railway station. It is believed that the sawmill operated up until the 1880s or even as late 1898 when JB left Australia for the Klondyke Gold Rush in Canada at 70 years of age.
