William Henry Vize


From on Sunday, 5 September, 2010

Dear Elizabeth
I wanted to point out some incorrect information on your website relating to the Vize family in Australia.
You have "William Vize aged 22 came March 1853 on the Martin Luther and wed c1858 to Mary McQuirk 1838 - 1867 #5573 aged 28, daughter of Mary and Patrick McGurk, and lived at Essendon"
They had a daughter Mary but this is not the Mary Vize who married John George Harney. This Mary Vize was in fact the widow of William Henry Vize (1833-1878) - from a separate Vize family - and was born Mary Walker in 1840 in Gogar Bank Scotland, married William Henry Vize in 1860 and lived around Sale, Maffra, Lakes Entrance area. There are several male Vize descendants from William Henry Vize and Mary Walker who had 6 sons.
This Mary is my great great grandmother.
I don't know what happened to the other Mary Vize, daughter of William Vize and Mary McGuirk.
PLEASE BE CAREFULL A few people have picked up the incorrect info from this website.Check the facts before you copy.
kind regards, Sue Vize

Francis August Voigt

From on Tue, 8 Mar 2005

Regarding Francis & Kezia Voigt (Dew) - I have copies of their Death Certificates - Francis August Voigt died in Richmond 21st September 1914 aged 88 years.
Kezia died at Mitcham 19th November 1916 aged 87 years.
Barelli - I believe that Edwin & Emelia Barelli arrived on the ship Vanguard in 1862 as unassisted immigrants - the name is listed as Berrillo but ages, names and year of arrival are right.
Regards
Jan Cross

From on Thu, 13 Nov 2003
My name is Philip Volich and I'm a great grandson of John Volich. My Fathers name was John William Volich and his Father was Mitchell Volich.
Do you have any more info on Volich that is not listed on your web page?
From what I have been told my grandfather Mitchell originally settled in the goldfields of W.A. and came from the Victorian goldfields possibly Weddiburn near Bendigo.
Kind Regards
Phil Volich
