From on Sunday, 29 January 2012
Dear Elizabeth Janson,
I am enquiring about a female child Winifred Edna born in 1891 to Jos and Louise Eliza WYXES.
The following extract is from the Australian Birth Index 1788 - 1922.
Name: Winifred Edna Wyxes Father's Name: Jos Wyxes Mother's name: Louise Eliza Davis Birth Place: Mortlake, Victoria Registration Year: 1891 Registration Place: Victoria Registration number: 15323
There is no other record of the name WYXES anywhere in official records so I imagine that an error has occurred in transcribing the card index.
In your excellent records of "Pioneer Families in Victoria" I have found references to Joseph and Louise Eliza WYKES and their four children, born 1881,1883,1884 and 1886.
I think that Winifred Edna mentioned is my grandmother. She was born in 1891 but did not have any birth certificate. When she was quite young she was taken to a solicitor's office in Melbourne and handed over to Arthur Smith and his wife Jeanette Decima (Boden). I think that they lived in Rosebud at the time. They did not have any children of their own.
I have found no record of the death of Winifred Edna Wykes or Wyxes nor any marriage record.
If you know anything about this child or if you can direct me to someone who can help I would appreciate it very much.
Sincerely, Liz Richards
Looking for children of Joseph unknown, and Louise Eliza Davis, I found these deaths
Winifred Ford nee Wykes 1891 - 1984 #22997 aged 93, dau of Louise Eliza and Joseph Wykes, died at Warr as Mrs Ford
Wilfred Wykes son of Wfred Wykes 1927 #872 infant death at Carlton


5. William Wykes 1857 #6684 wed 1882 to Margaret Seater
1 child 1. William Andrew Wykes 1883 #6398
