    Notes 
    • Dear Sue,

      Thank you for the info on William and Eliza Hunt, I didn't have info of where they came from in England. That helps out with the three children I didn't have.

      Do you have info on the second marriages of Ellen and Eliza?
      Ellen Booth married second John Brooks Webley and had 9 more children.

      Eliza Truslove married Hugh Jackson and had 2 more children.
      As all the other info you have seems to match mine pretty well, I thought it must be the computer program that needn't include it. As you have their death dates, I gather you have this information as well.

      Edward John Oliver had a family before his marriage to Amy Booth?

      I do have a few more things to add, as my genealogy is on another computer and will take a little time to organise. So will sent you a copy to compare a little later.

      I have double checked the Ellen Susan Truslove d/o John A & Mary, I can't find any info.so where I got it originally don't know. There is an Ellen Mary Anne which I had, died the same year.

      Just before I go, do you know Norma Fripp? She was researching the Fripp Hunt Truslove connection about twenty years ago. I don't know where she lives now but when Gordon was alive they lived in Sorrento.

      Cheers for now

      Notes from Nona Oliver:

      Rumour has it that Edward Oliver (son of William and Mary Ann Oliver) married Melbin (aboriginal) to gain land. There is no official marriage record. Good chance it was either illegal to marry aborigines or not necessary because aborigines weren't counted as citizens.

      Edward is said to have taken Melbin back to England. Don't know about this one.
