Re: Bounty Immigration NSW 1828-1842 Lookups Available
Thank you very much for your excellent reply to my posting.Upon receipt I ordered a transcription for the death of Ellis Boyne.The following details were recorded:
Name: Ellis Boyne
Date of Death 27/12/1862
Place Sydney Infirmary NSW
Age 33 (therefore concurs with a birth in 1829)
Place of birth Not stated
Time in Australian colonies Not stated
Informant H Houston Resident Surgeon of Infirmary
Cause of Death Disease of stomach
Medical attendant Dr Alleyne
Date last seen 27 Dec
Date of burial 29/12/1862
Place of burial Camperdown Cemetery
Undertaker Thos Dixon
Witnesses WM Baker, George Shyne
Ellis Hobson was married to Ellen Blake on 25 Jan 1854.Their last child, John Abraham Hobson was born in 1862.THis is confirmed by Ellen's death certificate.Ellen was remarried to Herman Thiele in 1867.Therefore it seems logical that Ellis either died or left Ellen in the period 1862-1867.It seems strange that his death was recorded with the surname Boyne.However the calculated birth date of 1829 does match that of Ellis Hobson from your immigration extraction.
I have checked NSW BDM records for deaths of William Hobson and found the following:
V18551307 110/1855 (age 45 - born 1810 therefore too old)
5185/1866 Parents William/Rebecca
9316/1879 Parents Fowler/Elizabeth
12541/1884 Parents Thomas/Ann
13997/1887 Parents Alexander/Mary
6832/1898 Parents Elliot/Etty (could Elliot be Ellis?)
The remaining would be too old.
I also checked all the Hobson deaths for deceased with parents of James and Margaret and found none.
I checked for NSW deaths for Boyne and found the following which may be relevant:
1 Hobson Boyne 186210807 122/1862 Died Cumberland
2 John Boyne 5771/1863 Died Ryde
3 Mary Boyne 6976/1867 Fathers name "Unknown Walker" - died Parramatta
4 Jane Boyne 667/1873 Father Abraham Died Sydney
5 Sarah Boyne 4217/1890 Died Central Cumberland
1 - Assumably there would have to be a connection with the given name "Hobson" and surname "Boyne".I will order a transcription to see if there are any other details.
1,2,3 & 5- My Hobson ancestors lived in this area
4 - The last son of Ellis Hobson was John Abraham Hobson.
I note that you have further details on James, Margaret and family.It would be greatly appreciated if you could let me have the details.
Thanks again for your assistance
