Thanks for all your information, it has given me some great leads, although I do have a few queries?I live in Tonbridge, Kent, England and was really surprised that you live Down Under!! It is really good to communicate with someone from a different country.Any help I am able to give you, I will try my best to oblige and I will send you copies of anything that would be of any help.
As I said before, Thomas Heather married Sophia Walker on 2 December 1838, at The Church of St. Pauls Cray, Kent - I have the marriage certificate. You say he was born 20 June 1812, where can I find proof for my records?His father, Thomas, was born 14 April 1786, you say he was bt.(baptised?) 4 April 1786, before he was born - typing error?
Thomas (the father) married Mary and was buried, or died 19 September 1832. His father was Robert, born 1787, died 1837.Robert married a Charity Timmins (nee Williams).I don't understand this bit.Was Timmins her middle name, or her maiden name.If her maiden name, where does the Williams come from?I have been on the IGI web-site and found a Charity Timos, who married a Robert Heather on 4 December 1785, but they could not have married before Robert was born!!I am getting confused and am fairly new to family history, please help!I have worked out though(I think) that Robert Heather was my 5 times great grandfather on some side of my family tree!
Would love to hear from you again - sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you, but my computer has been down.What part of Australia do you live?
