Francis Opie

Received 26 Feb 2003 from who has discovered his ancestry includes several surnames I have researched. As this site includes names that have arisen while doing a family, links are the reason most families are listed.
Dorothy Grace Monsell b. Sebastopol [Ballarat] 1904, is the daughter of John Devain Monsell & Annie Lee, [youngest of 3 known children]. She married Norman William LADNER [1875-1917], 2nd son of Charles Curnow Ladner & Emily Ellen COLLIVER. Charles Curnow Ladner is the brother of my maternal Grandfather, Francis John Ladner [1832-1906].
See the Ladner page.
J Ahern begins with his Ahern family and continues with the Lummis and Muller families
That's not all .... Next comes the GILES family. (See the Giles, Ladner, Monsell and Opie (listings below.)
Ada Mary LADNER [1870-1934] sister of the above Ladners ie, Charles & Francis, married Francis Henry GILES of Little Bendigo in 1891.
Francis Henry was the first born of James Giles & Edith Ellen TODD. The other 2 are
Eunice Ursula Giles [1892-1977] &
Leslie Roy Giles [1894-1964].
I have not been able to make a connection with Peter Giles / Sarah Harvey but it is highly possible that they could be related.
Ada Ladner & Francis Giles had 6 children, all born in Ballarat East.
To finish up with, there are also OPIE's in the family line, this time we have to go back Mary Sarah CURNOW, wife of William Ladner, mother & father of previously mentioned Francis & Charles Curnow Ladner. Charles Curnow [1834-1895], brother of Mary Sarah Curnow, married Harriet ENDIEN in Truro, 1854. Their 4th born , William married Susan Jane OPIE in Ballarat in 1884. Susan Jane's parents were, Francis OPIE [1829-1897] & Ann WILLIAMS [1833-1912]. Fairly remote I admit, but a coincidence none the less.
See the Francis Opie notes. Is there a connection with Tristam Opie and Sarah Dennis came c1863 and lived at Ballarat.
Susan Jane Opie's parents were, Francis Opie [1829-1897] & Ann Williams [1833-1912]. To make research easy, there are two men called Francis Opie living in Ballarat, one wed to Ann Williams and the other wed 1861 #3225 to Mary Ann Thomas and both registered babies named Francis in 1863, one of whom wed 1892 #2278 to Louie Mitchell. Together they registered 15 children born, and 5 died

Dear Elizabeth,
Wrong - You list John Opie 1862 #6462 (son of Catherine Phillips and Daid Opie) wed 1889 #1659 to Elizth Jane Bettess.
According to my records, provided by Joan Connor, it was John OPIE 1861 #2231, son of James Michael OPIE and Grace RAWLING, was born in Ballarat, Vic, who married Elizabeth Jane BETTESS in 1889 and had one son, Vincent Leslie OPIE, born 1890 and married to Mary Jane KRUSE.
Apparently several John Opie’s were born in Ballarat and the surrounding area in the early 1860’s.
Cheers, Lindsay.

The barque David Malcolm, 538 tons, Captain Jacob W. Smith, from London 27th December 1848 & Plymouth 5th January 1849, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 7th April 1849. She brought Dr. Weymouth surgeon-superintendent in the cabin, and 236 government emigrants in the steerage, including Opie, Thomas & wife & four children - note: There was no Official copy of the passenger list for this voyage of the barque David Malcolm.
Opie's dairy is of local historical and social significance as a rare surviving remnant of the nineteenth century rural agricultural development that was centred around the old village of Kororoit Creek (Deer Park). The mud-mortared bluestone and timber structures demonstrate the vernacular architecture of the period.
Thomas Opie, the owner of this dairy, was originally from Cornwall, migrating to Australia via South Australia in 1849 with his parents, Thomas Opie and Joey Kampe/Kempe, at the age of nine. The family moved to Melbourne in 1852 and lived in Collingwood for a while before moving to the plains and the area now known as Deer Park. By 1865, Thomas Opie senior and his sons were farming on 280 acres, part freehold and the remainder on lease. The Opies' original family home was west of Robinsons Road, but they also farmed land north of Ballarat Road. Thomas Opie Senior died in 1873 recorded as aged 60 years, but his wife Joey continues to run their farm.
In 1866, her son, Thomas Opie Junior, bought 76 acres of land in Section 21, Parish of Derrimut, the area where the present house and dairy are situated. That same year, he married Elizabeth Osborne, who was also from Cornwall, having arrived in Australia with her parents in 1850. They had four sons and four daughters by 1888, surviving out of a total of eleven children altogether.
Thomas Opie Junior also bought land near Kororoit Creek under the Selection Acts. He supplemented the family income from the small mixed farming and grazing property by work as a contractor. In 1888, he was cultivating 108 acres on his 280 acre holding and grazing cattle. The Opie family was one of the first families living in the Deer Park area at that time and were prominent in community and municipal affairs. Thomas Opie Senior was one of the first members of the Braybrook District Road Board, having been elected in 1860. Thomas Opie Junior was a Braybrook Shire councillor 1892-1898 and 1900-1902 and his son, Thomas John Opie, was a shire councillor 1909-16, 1917-19.
The dairy at their Robinson's Road farm had the dual purposes of milking shed and dairy. Basic milk separation was carried out in the bluestone buildings which was partly sunk into the ground and afforded cool summer temperatures by the thick well-pointed stone walls. Here, the Opie family made butter, which they sold to Melbourne shops, for over a quarter of a century. {Footscray Advertiser, 30 January 1891) Condition & integrity The homestead has been greatly altered but the dairy itself is in good condition and appears relatively intact externally. Remains of dry stone walls, timber out buildings and pepper trees contribute to the integrity of the site.Context/comparative analysis Now located amidst modern housing although in an early subdivision ( 1930s?).

From Rootsweb 7 Sep 2000, Can anyone please give me any information on Messrs Hunt, James Opie, Tristram Opie and John Michael Opie who operated and worked in the Victoria Foundry in Ballarat. I would particularly like to find out if they brought the machinery to operate the foundry with them from Perranarworth, Cornwall, or did they make it themselves here.
John Michael Opie was my g-grandfather and had two sons (Fred and Harry) and several daughters Ellen (Nellie), Edith Jane, Katherine Hilda (Kate), May and Mabel who both died as infants, Emmaline Gertrude (Gert), and Lillian Clara. Can anybody connect with these people would like to find out who the girls and Harry married please.
Many thanks, Vivienne Garforth (nee OPIE)
From a Rootsweb posting dated 9 Jun 2001, My g-grandfather, John Michael OPIE emigrated from Perranarworthal in Cornwall to Ballarat in 1863 with his married brother Tristram Opie. They came out to join another brother James who had come out in 1849 and who had a successful iron foundry in Ballarat. James had married a Perranarworthal girl, Grace Rawlings in Melbourne after they had come out on the same ship in Dec 1849. (see above - arrived in Nov 1849)
In 1866, Tristram Opie's wife Sara and children came out to join James, Grace, Tristram and John, accompanied by Grace's younger sister Ellen Rawlings. In 1867, John Opie married Ellen in Ballarat but they moved to Melbourne after a few years. John and Ellen were my g-grandparents . Their son John Frederick Opie married my grandmother, Annie Hastie in 1909 at her parents home in Cunderdin, W.A. I have absolutely NO IDEA how John Frederick Opie met Annie Hastie.

From on Sunday, 1 August, 2010
Dear Elizabeth,
I have just recently come across your pages and would like to provide you with some additional information about the descendants of Louisa Marion HOLMES and George OPIE. I am their great grandson, the grandson of George Lyndsay OPIE.
Louisa Marion HOLMES born 22/12/1870, Ballarat, Vic, died 19/10/1919, Melbourne, Vic, married 21/07/1891, Ballarat, Vic to George OPIE born 20/06/1864, Ballarat, Vic, died 19/01/1941, Berwick, Vic. Following the death of Louisa, George married Marion Elizabeth LORDING (sister to Ida Adelaide LORDING, wife of George Lyndsay OPIE – see below), on 10/05/1921, no issue.
Also, in case you were unaware, John Edward OPIE, husband of Emily Isabella HOLMES, was a brother of George OPIE. John Edward was born 25/04/1856 at Perranaworthal, Cornwall , Eng, and died 26/11/1910 at Ballarat, Vic.
John and George were the sons of Tristram OPIE and Sarah DENNIS. Thank you for the information on the daughter of John Edward and Emily Isabella. We did not know of her existence. After John’s death Emily married a SELWOOD in Ballarat. They had no children. I met her when I was a child in the early 1950s. By that stage she was bedridden.
Yours sincerely, Lindsay Opie

Sarah DENNIS, wife of Tristram OPIE arrived in Australia in 1863 as George OPIE, my great g’father was born in Ballarat in June 1864 (1st Australian born in my family). A review of the family records indicates that she was either pregnant or had just given birth at the time that Tristram and his brother John Michael OPIE emigrated in 1861.
Cheers, Lindsay.
