Edward Exon

From on Sun, 3 Oct 2004

Dear Elizabeth
I was just doing a bit of a trawl though Google for mentions of Exons and came across your site.
I have a One-Name Study web page for the Exon surname.
My knowledge of the Exons from the English midlands is pretty poor but I did notice that you didn't have anything about Robert Exon's family.
The little information that I have is:
Edward Exon was born in 1823, son of Thomas and Mary Exon. He married Ann Woodford in 1845 in Leicestershire and they then came to Australia in 1856. Ann (Annie) died in Victoria in 1880, age given as 59. Edward died 1901 at Kangaroo Flat, Victoria where Robert was also living. Age given as 74 which isn't quite right.
I have not yet been able to find any information about Thomas and Mary Exon.
Cheers, Maggie Exon
