Thomas Freemantle

From on Tuesday, 4 March, 2014
I checked the bible last night and see I was one generation out in its provenance as it was a gift to TCDF from his mother, Sarah "as a token of love and thanks to God on his attaining the age of 21 years" and so the photo is of her. There are a few of sets of written entries in it - one set by Sarah on both her marriages (Thomas Freemantle dying on 7 April 1845, age 30) and her children from both; a second set apparently by TCDF on his family with Annie Birkett and then some entries by Edward Freemantle.
The dual name entry for Edward Thomas Freemantle (as also referencing Francis Edward) is particularly interesting as this is also reflected in the handwritten bible entry - with Francis Edward originally written in and then neatly crossed out and Edward Thomas written above it.
The second set of entries indicates another child born to TCDF & Annie - between Victoria Annie and Alice Birkett: she was Clara Redfern Freemantle born 21 July 1861 and dying 26 January 1865.
It also refers to his nephew, Thomas Hastings (son of TCDF's sister, Sarah Victoria Freemantle married to a Richard Hawkins) arriving in Australia on 22 March 1871. Thomas Hastings was born on 15 November 1856.
You list 2 living step children (Isabella & Margaret Mary) at the time of Edward's marriage to Isabella McIntyre plus the birth of an unnamed daughter in 1888. Margaret Mary (my grandmother) is actually the baby born in 1888 and so not born in 1897 (although she would have been pleased if people thought she was born on the later date).
William Bourke was the 4th and final husband as Margaret Mary was married several times and her age on the certificates gets younger and younger each time, however the age on the certificate for the first marriage tallies with the 1888 date - to Harry Jakeman on 6 July 1909.
Again, warmest thanks for your wonderful genealogical research. Andree
