From on Monday, 26 September, 2011
Good morning Elizabeth, I am a descendant of the Francis Jose who arrived in Australia on the “Omega”. Francis is my g.g.grandfather and his daughter Sophia is my g.grandmother
Many years ago(about 1990) at the beginning of my family history research I placed a few ads in GRD. I had a response from Steve Marshall , Ontario, Canada and Fred Morley, Virginia, USA I have not been in contact with either of them for many years. These contacts gave me some interesting information.
They are descendants of the Jose family line of which I am descended from. Their charts date from 1537.
I have a copy of the Coroner’s inquest into the drowning of Francis.
Sophia wed George Haywood (George was registered at birth as George Whitehand, illegitimate child of Susan Whitehand).
There were 6 children of Sophia and Georges marriage
1 George Francis b 20.3.1886, Brunswick. m. 1.5.1911,(Bessie Lucy McHugh.) d 25.8.1915
2 Herbert Earnest b 1888, Brunswick m 1912 (Annie Louisa Armstrong.)
3 Ethel May b 1890 Box Hill, d 18.4.1891
4 Edith b 1892 Brunswick
5 Thomas b after 1895
6 Lillian Pearl b 1907
My family line is from George Francis Haywood. If you are interested in any of the above please get in touch as I am more than willing to share this information. Regards, Nola Edgar

From "Nick Hudson" on Thu, 29 Apr 2004 - in 2008 not at this email address

Hi,
I visited your web site and noticed a reference to a John Jose, son of Daniel Jose and Elizabeth Vine who died in South Melbourne age 78.

My wife's Great Grandmother was Charlotte Violet Jose, daughter of Richard Jose who came to South Australia in the 1850's. Richard Jose was the son of Daniel Jose and Elizabeth. Since Richard's birth pre-dates registration, we are a step short of absolute certainty that he and your John Jose were brothers but it looks highly probable:

Cornwall on line census project (1841) HO107/153 St.Winnow COCP Code
153300 Folio 16 Page 2 living Bridge End

Daniel Jose, 45, agricultural labourer, born in county
Elizabeth Jose, 35, born in county
Catherine Jose, 7, born in county
John Jose, 2, born in county

Folio 34 Page 11 "Ethy Cottage"
Richard Jose, 10, agricultural labourer born in county (working for John Short, farmer)

Folio 36 Page 14 "Burn"
Mary Jose, 14, servant born in county (working for John Cossentine, farmer)

Daniel and Elizabeth are still at 41 Bridgend in 1861:
Daniel Jose, head, m, 68, agricultural labourer born Devonport (Devon)
Elizabeth Jose, wife, m, 57 labourer's wife, born St. Winnow (Cornwall)

I have the usual miscellaneous information on Richard Jose and his descendants filed away. I would be happy to dig it out for you if it is likely to be of interest. I would certainly be interested in any information you have relating to John Jose or his parents Daniel and Elizabeth.

Perhaps you could drop me a line when it is convenient.
Regards,
Nick Hudson (Adelaide, South Australia)
