Peggs from Leicestershire and Bundaberg
I have posted a message under another heading in this forum but thought I should put the info here too.
My records at present go back only as far as yours but I have tried to do a bit of detective work on this.I have posted the following info for my lineage from our common great-great-grandfather.I have other data, including some on the two Pegg brothers who were speared while shepherding.
Peter Pegg, born at Desford, Leicestershire in about 1811;died 1845? near Grafton by drowning in the Clarence River.
Abraham Hudson** and Sarah Worthy** were married in Leicestershire in about ????.Children (known) of the marriage:
1Sarah Hudson (Sutton??), born at Leicestershire, England in about 1810 (or 1812);died 24 May 1864 at Wide Bay, Qld**.
(**Information supplied to FSDB by Annette Lillian Blair, 56 Maike Street, Bundaberg but not confirmed independently by me).There are several other FSDB records for births of children named Sarah Hudson in the period 1807 – 1815 at a number of locations in Leicestershire.These are also impossible for me to match with certainty into the lineage so will accept the information from Annette Blair for now.It would seem that Sarah was born Sarah Hudson but was either previously married to a Sutton, or perhaps adopted the Sutton surname if her mother had remarried to a Sutton).Note FSDB has a record for a Sarah Worthey, born at Shepshed, Leicester on 6 August 1773.Her parents were John Worthey and Alice ??.Perhaps too old to be Sarah Hudson/Sutton’s mother.
