Two husbands featured
Daniel Mollenoyux, and John Marr Stonehouse,


Mollenoyux

Daniel Mollenoyux, had been transported to Van Diemen’s Land in 1833 when aged about six for shoplifting gooseberries. He had spent time at Port Arthur and its boy’s prison, Point Puer. 16 Ten years later, in January 1854, he drowned while swimming with others in the Merri River near the punt. The inquest, held at the Warrnambool Hotel, found that he had drowned accidentally. It is interesting that Susan is believed to be born in 1848.
Daniel Mollenoyux was convicted at Cambridge 1833 of larceny when aged 16, sentenced to 7 years and sent to Van Dieman's Land on the John.
From on Sunday, 22 March, 2009, Daniel Mollenoyux arrived in Hobart Town (Van Diemens Land) in December 1833 aboard the convict ship John. He crossed Bass Strait with his wife aboard the Flying Fish in 1847, and drowned in the Merri River ar Dennington Victoria in 1854. Daniel's parents were Robert Mullinox & Susan Barber.
As promised I have also gathered a little more information regarding Daniel's son Mark and his children. I do have the names of their spouses and how many children they had. Mark & Eliza's baby Arthur died not long after Eliza did. After Eliza died, the older girls looked after the younger children.

From on Friday, 27 February, 2009
Hi There!!
My great grandmother was Nellie Charlotte Molyneaux. According to the "Terang & District Pioneer Registry, Pre 1900" she is the daughter of Mark Molyneaux & Eliza Sarah Fidler - you do not, however, have her listed in your information I found on the internet.
My mother has told me that there was also Elsie Matilda (known as Topsy) & Alfred (known as Freddie) as well. Nellie was around 3 when her mother died in childbirth. Mum thinks the baby died as well as she can't remember any others, as she remembers Nellie (her Grandmother) being the youngest. Mum remembers Uncle Freddie well, and the other boys vaguely. She remembers the other girls as Aunty Sue, Aunty Etti and Aunty Aim. Elsie, Freddie and Nellie were born after Herbert. My Grandmother is in her 90's and Mum is going to see what else she can tell us - she is still pretty with it!
Nellie married William Bennett, son of Robert Bennett & Susanna Buck, my Grandmother married one of the the sons of their youngest daughter Grace (John Ian Blain) My Grandmother is Sylvia Matthews Blain (nee. Bennett).
