Hi I am looking for any information on Eliza Rankin.My GGrandparents Marriage Cert on 1 December 1890 at Sydney states:
Their Names: Charles Henry Diekelman Bachelor from Hamburg26 and Eliza Jane Janson Spinster from Pyrmont Sydney 22
Their Parents were Federick August Deikelman - Piano Maker and Henrietta Wineke
The Problem Parents Eliza Jansons:
George Janson and Eliza Rankin
I have some information on George Janson, however, Eliza Rakin completely eludes me.
As a youngster we were told that there was an italian in our family tree (that could be George Janson) and talk of a convict (there is a Eliza Rankin who came here on the "Mary" in 1885.She was convicted in Devon England. Not sure if that is her.
My problem is I also have a B/Cert for Eliza Jane dated 12 April 1871 showing her Father as George Genson Laborer 33 from Genoa Italy and Eliza Ikin 28 from Sydney married on 18 April 1818 in Sydney 1 Male living 3 females deceased. The informant was Eliza Janson - Mother
Herein lies my problem.Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreiated,Regards Sue
