William Knowles


From on Tuesday, 30 August, 2011
Hi Elizabeth
You can see detail of William KNOWLES and his family at:William Knowles
A couple of corrections you may like to make on your page, your current statements shown below in italics:
"Mary Ann Buckley may be the daughter aged 8 who came 1840 on the John Bull as Intermediate passengers with father William Henry Buckley".
Mary Ann WADE born 19 AUG 1836 in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia c: 5 APR 1837 in Parish of St John's, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. Mary was baptised as Mary Ann WADE, later assuming the surname BUCKLEY. It is uncertain whether Mary is the biological daughter of her mother Selina's 1st husband George WADE, or Selina's 2nd husband James BUCKLEY. Mary was born and baptised in Launceston, Tasmania.
"William Knowles 1826 - 1899 #1958 aged 73, son of Isabel Grieve wed 19 Aug 1822 at Saint Laurence, York, Yorkshire, England to William Knowles"
- William died in 1886 He was born in Birmingham, UK, somewhere between 1822 and 1826. He gives his mother's name as Mary Lucinda. The son of Isabel GRIEVE is not the William KNOWLES who married Mary Ann BUCKLEY.
Cheers, Steven
