Dear Elizabeth- I began researching my Tyzzer ancestors last year and I just came upon your website. My family is from St Agnes, possibly kin to Constantine Tyzzer. I see that your William Tyzzer married Mary Pollard. When I go to www.familysearch.org and enter the same marriage, I see the marriage date was 24 Nov 1855 in East Newlyn, Cornwall, and there is an entry stating that Charles Tyzzer is William's father. I believe that the family you show from 1841 is a different family.
When I check IGI I see that Charles Tyzzer married Mary Anne Harris on 29 Oct 1832 in Perranzabuloe, Cornwall. I cannot locate a birth date or place for Charles.
I am attempting to determine how all of the Tyzzer families in the area might be related to each other. If you have done any research, please email me. If you are aware of any other Tyzzer researchers, please ask them to email me. Thank you.
Best regards,

He and his other siblings were on the way to church and Gil was either dared or decided to “ride the Rocker arm” of the Maloort Gold Mine nr Ballarat Vic. This may have been an activity of the local children or he may have been just silly. Either way Gil was crushed and died instantly. The other children, rather than go straight home and tell their parents went to Sunday School first and only on their return home did they tell their family what happened, this was some hours later.

(Murdoch McDonald as he was knows for most of his life changed the spelling of his surname in the early 1920's so he was able to work in a firm staffed and owned by Roman Catholics, the Macdonald spelling was protestant and the catholic man was very bigoted and one eyed. His and Mabel's eldest daughter Ethel Ellen (Judy) always used the 'Macdonald" spelling although the other three used the Cap"D". In later years the "Macd" was used by the others occasionally, The New Zealand side of the family (Murdoch's first wife's children) have always used the" Macd" spelling.) They lived in Ngkawau north of Westport South Is New Zealand, then in 1928 moved Canberra, then back to Vic , Perth WA and then back to Melbourne. Murdoch moved back to New Zealand in Aug 1937, returning to the two oldest children and their family. He died there in 1956 (at Gisbourne Nth ISland).
