Re: Cheshire Thorleys pre 1814
I am also descended from Jabez Thorley.
He married Maria Lesar in Capetown, South Africa in 1845.
First five children born in South Africa, the next seven in Melbourne, Australia.

Mary b 18.6.1852 (died as an infant)
John b. 1.8.1854
Maria b.2.7.1857...from whom I am descended
