I am a decendent of Edmund Beckett,B1832 Steeple Claydon Bucks.,who was a Chimney Sweep. He married Mary Holt(B 1833 Edgcott,Bucks.) in 1854 in Buckinghamshire.I have no records of their deaths in u.k. Their children were, as I have found on 1871 &1881 census, wereJesse B1855,Mary B1862,Rosa B1867,Annie B1869,Albert B1871 & Septimus B1873.
Jesse,who is my G Grandfather,married Miria Hudson(B1857) in Mixbury,Oxford in1874. She died 1895 in Brisbane,Australia. his second wife was Elizabeth Williams, a widow with 3 children. Jesse died 1942 Brisbane,Australia. Jesse and Miria sailed to Australiaon the "Robert Lees", arriving in Moreton Bay April 1878.Their one year old son Georgedied on the journey and was buried at sea. The Shipping List also listed a Robert who was 18years. I don't know if he was a younger brother of Jesse and I missed him on the census,or maybe he was a cousin. Maybe you have a record of a Robert Beckett b1859 c. I didn't find a Robert on the st.Catherines records although it does get boring sitting looking at a screen for hours on end. Hope you may be able to shed some light on this for me.
