Edward Garth

Information obtained from Archives Office of Tasmania http://www.archives.tas.gov.au/
Edward Garth believed born in England about 1768 and died at Hobart, Tasmania, Australia 1823, wed Suzannah (other details unknown) believed born 1763 in England and died at Hobart 1841. They appear to be First Fleet convicts, and included in the special group sent to pioneer Norfolk Island as a food supply for the Sydney settlement.
The list of First Fleeters includes
Scarborough, Convict Edward Garth also Gaff or Gash
Friendship, Convict Suzannah Garth also Gough, Grates, Grant or Grath
Checking the John Cobley books,
1. Crimes of the First Fleet Convicts.
Susannah Garth (Grant) (aged 24 in 1787) and Elizabeth Dudgens (aged 23 in 1787) were together tried in the Old Bailey Weds 10 Sept 1873 for stealing, sentenced to 7 years transportation.
Edward Garth (age not recorded) was tried in Old Bailey Weds 8 Dec 1784 for stealing 2 cows, sentenced to death respited to transportation to Africa for 7 years
2. Sydney Cove 1788
On Weds 30 January Mr Jameson's choices of 8 convict men and 6 women were selected, and given permission to marry if affection arose. Anne Yates declined her offer and Susan Gough replaced her.
On Thurs 14 Feb (Page 75) The personell accompanying Lieutenant King to colonise Norfolk Island were Mr Jamison, Surgeon's First Mate of the Sirius, Mr James Cunningham Master's Mate of the Sirius, Mr T Turnpenny Altree Assistant to the Surgeon, two seamen, Roger Morley a weaver and William Westbrook a sawyer, two marines from the Sirius, Charles Kerridge and John Batchelor, six female convicts, Elizabeth Lee, Elizabeth Colley, Olivia Gascoin, Ann Inett, Susan Gough; and nine male convicts including Charles McClellan, Richard Widdicombe, Edward Garth, Edward Westlake, John Mortimer, Noah Mortimer and Nathaniel Lucas. They took stores for 6 months, "some sheep, hogs and poultry, seeds and plants, with tools and implements for clearing and cultivating the ground"
On 19 March the Supply returned to Sydney and reported" It was with great difficulty and hazard they landed the provisions and stores, the shore being extremely rocky and the surf beating very high".
On 17 July the Supply was sent to Norfolk Island with 6 months provisions, and returned on 26 Aug to report the deaths of Mr Cunningham and three others lost in a boat that was swamped by the surf.
3. Blackburn's Isle, by Derek Neville, records the Supply sailed on 17 Feb 1788 with 21 male convicts, 6 female convicts and 3 children including a boy (3) and a girl (4). I can find no trace of these children in my reference books.

From on Sat, 2 March 2013
Received some transcripts re my ancestors, here is some of the information to add to your history. Edward Garth died on 3rd May 1921 in Newcastle at age 80. His birth place was recorded as Police Point Huon River Tasmania. He was married at age 21 to Sarah Emily Jane Robertson. Children of the marriage were: James E M 53; Laura JL 49; David A W 47; Louisa M A 45; Peter R 42; Frederick G W 39; Albert J G 35 , Still living at the time of his death, there were also 2 males and 2 females deceased.
Sarah Emily Jane Garth died on the 1 December, 1914. Her father's name is recorded as Robinson on her death certificate. She was 72 when she died and recorded as being born in Hamilton Tasmania. Children recorded as James E M 45; Laura IL 44; David 40; Louisa MA 35; Peter RR 34; Frederick GW 32; Albert J G 26, living and 4 males and 2 females deceased.
My great grandfather was David Andrew Walgrave Garth, son of Sarah and Edward. David died in Newcastle on 19 July 1961 aged 88. His place of birth is recorded as PortAlbert, Victoria. In this register his mothers name is recorded as Sarah Jane Elizabeth. He married Margaret Meaker at age 25 at Cootamundra NSW. The children of the marriage were: Robert E 62; Mary M (deceased); Lawrence (my grandfather) deceased 1949; Hazel 51; Murray (deceased).
Margaret Garth died on 8 November 1938 as a result of injuries sustained in a fire.
She married David Andrew Walgrove Garth at Cootamundra. Children Robert 39; Mary M 38; Murray 34; Hazel 28; Lawrence 23; and 7 males 1 female deceased.
Where there is the name Walgrave and Walgrove I think Walgrove is the correct one. I have heard it many times as Walgrove.
I have a copy of from chains to freedom by Thais Mason but haven't compared this information to the information in the book.
I would be happy to further research my line of the family for information you might require. Robyn Cox (nee Garth)
Thankyou for adding these details to my page.


From on Tuesday, 14 April, 2009
I am a reasonably newcomer to the family tree, unfortunately I did not know about the book “From Chains to Freedom” until about 3 years ago. My mother died 13 years ago and would have had so much more to tell. I grew up with a tin trunk full of family photos of the Garth family, virtually thousands. Unfortunately except for a handful she burnt them all before she died. In shock I asked her why and she said “they would not have been of interest to anyone else”.

Hi ELizabeth
I was looking through your website and noticed that you didn't have much information on John Richard Garth. John Richard Garth was born 28 Nov 1826 in Hobart Tas and died 12 Mar 1878. He married my GGG Grandmother Ann Harrison 26 May 1863 in Saint John Baptist Church Hobart Tasmania and I believe they had no children as this was Ann's second marriage the first to my GGG Grandfather James Muir who died at sea I believe (Captain of a whaling ship).
The other interesting thing to note is that Selina Jemima Garth married John Downey Muir who was believed to be Ann's son as she appeared on the birth certificate of one of their children as the grandmother. I've never been able to prove this but from the research my mother has done it seems so as John appears as a witness to James Matthew Muir's wedding. James was Ann's other son to James SNR.
Hope this helps
Regards, Craig Woodhall

From on Mon, 15 Mar 2004
Hello,
I am writing in regard to Esther Jane Garth b. 1829; d. Edward Garth & Ann Bellett.
I believe that Esther may be my g.g.granmother but very little is known. You have Esther Jane as being married Henry William Young in 1854.
I suspect that this may been her second marriage and that she originally married Edward Barrett in 1845. There is a record for the marriage of Edward Barrett and Esther Garth 1845. They had three children and Edward died in 1854. The eldest son is my g.grandfather, also Edward.
The Archives of Tasmania have two records as follows:
Esther Jane Garth b. 1829 m. Henry Young 1854 - also Esther Jane Barrett m. Henry William Young 1854 (there is one daughter listed - Alice Jane b. 1858)
I was wondering if you could add any further information to this.
Regards,

Thankyou for making me look again.

From timberoo on Mon, 28 May 2007 - JC, our emails to you on 25 Mar 2011 bounced.
Hi Elizabeth,
I've just been into the WA BDM site looking for Lavinia Loftus Avis. She is supposed to have married Ernest Edmond GARTH in abt 1888 and they had Olive Evelyn Alice GARTH in 1896 in WA, Claude Sylvester GARTH in 1903 died Freemantle 1929, and Amelia Loftus GARTH in 1904.
Is Ernest the same man as Clifford? There can't be two Lavinia Loftus Avis, could there?
Her father was George Avis, born abt 1840 in Dover, England (died 1900 in Freemantle WA in 1900) (his parents Thomas Avis and Eleanor Loftus), and Lavinia's mother was Susan Mary Groves, born abt 1840 to James Groves and Ann (Susan died abt 1882 in Victoria, Australia).
Lavinia was born abt 1867 in Surrey, England.
Lavinia's sister, Annie Amelia Avis married Edward Sylvans Henry GARTH in 1886 in Victoria. Maybe Ernest (Clifford ?) and Edward were brothers????
Her other sister Alice Maude Avis died in 1903 at Freemantle WA.
Can you help me clarify the boys names please. Much obliged. JC
Hi, Thankyou for writing
The boys appear to be brothers who married sisters - look at the Vic BMD to see them.

From on Friday, 25 March, 2011
Lavinia was born in Croyden , U.K. on 6.12.1867, and died here in Perth on 4.10.1951.
She married my grandfather, Clifford GARTH , on 14.6.1887, and they had seven children -6 daughters and 1 son. Clifford was born in Tasmania on 28.10.1862 , and died in Fremantle on 17.5.1918. My grandmother, reared her seven children practically single-handed, supporting them by taking in sewing. She was an excellent seamstress. Lavinia nursed Clifford when he became ill and she was also a capable mid-wife, and well thought of by doctors in both Carnarvon and Sth. Fremantle area.
Regarding the other query, Ernest Edmund Garth was Clifford's brother, and married Alice Maud Kirkwood here in W.A. on 5.10.1897. Ihave other info if needed.
Thanks very much, Elizabeth.
