Henry Knell


From on Sunday, 12 July, 2009

Hi, found your website while looking for Frank Knell b1869...
I am a great great grand daughter of Henry Knell and Sarah Ann Parrish (whose mother you have as Mary Ann Guelph) I was wondering where you got this information from... we also had that from Sarah Anns death certificate but are doubting if this is correct, as we can find no other supporting information, we think her mothers maiden name may have been Price.
Another thing is Henry Harford Knell b1886, married Louisa Edith Monro in 1910 #6916, not Eileen Katie O'Dea who wed Harry Knell 1919 ( we originally made the same mistake) they both died in NSW, and are buried with their son Laurence Henry.
hope this helps you.... Carmel(Knell)
Error I found an incorrect note that Sarah Ann Parrish's mother was Mary Ann Guelph.
Correction provided by , 2 Apr 2015.
Thomas Parrish (1804 - 21 Dec 1876) married about 1825 to Mary Ann Parrish (born Price) 1802 - 1873, was born in Camberwell, Surrey and died in Islington aged 71.

4. Jane Parrish dob 9 Jan 1837
5. William Benjamin Parrish (Michael's ancestor) dob 15 Nov 1839
6. Charles Parrish dob abt 1842

Henry Knell 1837 - 1897 #8774 aged 60 son of Elizabeth and James Knell, and Sarah Ann Parish 1835 - 1907 #8167 aged 72, daughter of Mary Ann Price and Thomas Parrish, came c1856 and lived at Collingwood
Details from Michael - Sarah Ann. I have her as bap 22 Feb 1835 St Mary's church, Stoke Newington, Hackney, London, daughter of Thomas Parrish and Mary Ann Price. They are in the 1841 census at Great James St, Marylebone, London, where the parents Thomas and Mary Ann are both aged 35, with children Ann aged 15, Thomas 13, Sarah 6, Jane 4, and William 1 year old, living in James St and Thomas is employed as a Lamp Lighter. William's birth certificate shows him born 15 Nov 1839 at 4 Highworth St, and birth registered by his father on 27 Nov 1839. She Immigrated to Australia abt 1855, married Henry Arthur Knell 19 Jul 1856 Trinity Church, Adelaide, SA (you have already found this) and they had 10 children. She died 9 Sep 1907 in North Fitzroy, Melbourne and is buried in the Melbourne General cemetery (vic records 1907 #8167).
