Hi all,
Am seeking any info about my ancestor, William Hewitt Hird. He was married on 20.2.1856 to Ann Cockin (b 1832?) at Luddington, Lincolnshire (taken from front page of family bible). He died in Victoria, Australia in 1912. His parents were Thomas and Mary (nee Hewitt). Ann died 1911, Victoria, Australia and her parents were Jitian and Jane Cockin (nee Popplewell). In June 1872, Ann age 40 and 5 children (Thomas b11.1.1857,William Jonathan b13.5.1858, John Popplewell b20.3.1860, Mary b10.4.1861, Annie b24.1.1863) arrived on 'Queen of Nations' in Victoria. I think William came out earlier but still hunting.
Do these names mean anything to you?
Any info of the family prior to 1872 would be appreciated.
Regards Michelle Hird
