Henry James Timbs


From on Monday, 7 May 2012
Hello Elizabeth, You are using the name 'Henrietta Mary Agnes' - her certificates show different.
I am a direct descendant of Henrietta. I have researched her family carefully and her full name comes from the marriage certificate plus other certificates which I possess as well as family knowledge.
Married Henry James Timbs -Marriage certificate 70/39602 Number 1362 12th June 1860 St James' Church Melbourne. I have also personally viewed this record at the church. Her parents were Samuel Woolsey, woollen draper, and Mary Ann Page and she signed her full name. Henrietta was staying with friends with no job listed.
I have seen the other forms of her name but they are definitely incorrect and I don't know where they have come from.
Death Certificate of Henry James Timbs waterman by self inflicted gunshot. Wife is listed as Henrietta Mary Ann Woolsey. I have this certificate as well. No. 73/713 Number 3669 5th October 1898.
Kindest Regards, Leonie Freeman.


William Timbs wed 29 Jan 1831 to Ann Hart at Saint Saviour, Southwark, Surrey, England. See Family web page Henrietta Woollsey born April 1836 at Great Yarmouth, Nfk, Eng. the daughter of Samuel Woollsey and Mary Ann Page, died aged 86 at Careon, Coburg, Victoria, Aust.
Henrietta Woolsey aged 22 came Jan 1860 on the Owen Glendower, arrival reported The Argus, Melbourne, Vic. Tuesday 31 January 1860,
15 vessels arrived 30 Jan, 5 from foreign ports and from England the Owen Glendower, ship, 989 tons, HT Dickinson, from London and Plymouth, November 9.

Edwards, Owen, R Cook, T Beaton, five servants; and 60 in tho steerage. WP White and Co., agents. Unassisted Inward Passenger Lists to get the 98 records for the Jan 1860 visit by the Owen Glendower.
Henry James Timbs went to Victoria. I suspect he was a Seaman employed on the Owen Glendower, and fell in love with one of the passengers. The reward of 2 pounds, did not result in his capture and return to ship's Commander Henry Thomas Dickinson. Of more concern on Saturday 24 March 1860 was the cargo, including the final Export of 6,680oz. of gold, cleared by Customs for shipment in the Owen Glendower, for London. Owen Glendower ship, 990 tons, H T Dickenson, left the port on 24 March and sailed with the tide on 25 March for London Passengers - cabin Ihe Archdeacon of Geelong, Mrs Stretch and family, Mr and Mrs Von Steiglitz, Mrs Fenchard, infant, and servant, Mrs Macintosh and lnfant, Mlsses Elizabeth and Jessie Fleming, Mr and Mrs P Hart, Dr Strong, and Messrs - Conn and W A Quesdon and two sons, and 151 in the second and third cabins W P White and Co, agents
