|This page relates to the 'Ancestry of Joseph Bartimeaus Robertshaw'.|
Joseph B. was born in Australia but his father was from Bradford Yorkshire, England.
It was only while doing my research that I found out that my grandfather, Joseph, had a younger brother named Bartimeaus who joined the Australian Forces and was killed on the first day of the Gallipoli Landing. He also had a sister Ivy.
Their father was Joseph Bartimeaus who only lived to the age of 35yrs, their mother Mary Ellen then remarried to Albert Edward Hutchinson. They had two more children, John W. and Fred.
Although my grandparents had seven children, 6 boys and 1 girl,
Elizabeth and Francis died at birth, leaving them with 5 boys, Ernest died at the age of fifteen. All of the other sons were in the Australian Army. All were married but only Joseph and Frederick were to have children.
Any information relating to this tree would be appreciated.
