Re: Warhurst from Eng to Australia
Families: Hall (Leek and Stockport), Allcock and Warhurst
I am trying to gain some BDM/parentage data on my Daniel Hall who is thought to have married Ann Warhurst at or near Stockport around mid-1830s before emigrating to SA on the "Delhi" in 1839. It is thought that a John Warhurst also travelled with Daniel and Hugh Hall and families. It seems that Ann and her daughter Elizabeth died soon after arrival in Adelaide.
I have considerable info on the Halls but Daniel in the UK is proving elusive. I am sure his parents were Richard and Jane Hall of Leek but can find nothing to confirm it. Daniel's marriage entry would be very useful and St Mary's Stockport could well hold the secret as the Halls lived in Great Portwood St nearby. Or did Ann Warhurst hail from a country village and were they married there?
I hope that we might exchange some more info.
