I am trying to research my Hosie line that lived in the Melbourne area from the mid 1800's.
Of interest to me are the following places. Hosie's Turkish Bathing Palace which was in Bourke St and owned by James Seves Hosie in the 1870's. Baths Hotel which was on the corner of Elizabeth St & Craig Lane owned by J.S. Hosie in the 1870's
I have been very kindly sent names from BDM indexes in Victoria and am now interested in finding descendants of the following lines who may still be in the area.
James Seves Hosie m Elizabeth Peitry Div. 1861
Robert Hosie m Ann Kedzlie Children: Helen m. Henry Clark, Ann Isabella m. James George, Robert (played cricket for Victoria 1883/4) & Elizabeth Pietry m. William Frederick Bates
Alexander Hosie m. Harriet Orange Children: Robert m. Susan Prince (lived N.Z.), Alexander m. Catherine Foster, George Charles m. Mary Ann Laurie/Lowe & Alice Maria.
John Hosie m. Christina McKay Children: Christina, John, Robert & Isabella
Also James Seves/Saves Hosie m. Lena Mary Wenker in 1900
