From on Saturday, 27 February, 2010
I was interested to see the Ramm family on your site. Jemima Ramm, wife of George Ramm, was the daughter of James Inwood and Emily Tily ( nee Cook - step father of Emily was George Noakes, mother Elizabeth Cook, natural father John Beeching).
Jemima Inwood was a half sister to my great-great grandfather Mathew Tily. He came to Australia in 1865; his half sister Elizabeth Summers (nee Inwood) and husband George Summers and two half brothers Robert and Arthur Inwood arrived earlier in 1865.
Jemima Inwood arrived about 1885 with her orphaned nephew James Francis Inwood.
The Ramm, Summers, Tily families eventually settled in Carlton, Melbourne, Victoria. William Ramm died in 1916 leaving a widow and baby.
Harry Paul Ramm married Therese Durbridge and lived in Sydney (both sons of George and Jemima Ramm). George and Jemima Ramm lived at 658 Station St. Carlton for some years in the 1920,s and W. Ramm lived at 654 Station St. Carlton. I thought that this was their son but it appears that it may be Wilhelm and Louisa Ramm.
I was wondering if relatives of George Ramm came to Australia.
I have benn tracing the Tily, Inwood, Summers, Ramm families and would welcome any information you have and would be more than willing to share anything I have found if you are interested.
Yours faithfully, Hugh Tily
