There is an Annie Elizabeth Angwin on the electoral roll in 1909 at Collingwood. If this is your Annie Elizabeth Angwin she was not married by 1909. She may even have met John Mitchell in NSW. It is also possible that Annie and John Mitchell never married. A marriage recorded on her death certificate in about 1895 before Leslie was born would be to hide Leslie’s illegitimacy.

Your Annie Elizabeth Angwin has her parents named on her death registration as John Angwin and Elizabeth Ann Williams. It is not known how reliable this information is. Also if her birth was illegitimate the named parents could be just to hide her illegitimacy.

There was an Annie Angwin born on 17 May 1874 in the Lying-In-Hospital in Melbourne, illegitimate daughter of Elizabeth Angwin. Elizabeth Angwin was 26 years old (born about 1848) and born in Cornwall. This child became a ward of the state. Unfortunately there is no way to know if this Annie Angwin is your Annie Elizabeth Angwin. It is just the only record in Victoria that is a possibility.

Justus Angwin was a common name in Cornwall, and especially in the area around St Just in Penwith. For this reason there are a number of Justus Angwins who immigrated from Cornwall and who had children in Victoria.

For example there was a Justus Angwin (1843-1905) & Elizabeth Hammer having children around Bendigo in Victoria from 1863-1879. He had a daughter Elizabeth Ann Angwin in 1877 but she married John Henry Mark Fry and died in 1952 in Victoria. Justice Angwin (c1843-1905) was the son of Justus Angwin (1819-1895) and Mary Williams (1820-1892). Justice Angwin (c1843-1905) and his parents were from St Just in Penwith, Cornwall. His mother’s death certificate shows that they only had 1 daughter, Mary Jane (1860-1936), who married a John William King.

The above family is therefore not the family of your Annie Elizabeth Angwin.


For those who read this post and who are interested in the above family some information follows:

From his death registration, Justus Angwin (1819-1895) was the son of Justus Angwin (1789-1846) and Grace Reynolds (1794-1861).

From her death registration, Mary Williams (1820-1892) was the daughter of Christopher Williams (1795- 30 Dec 1876) and Mary Woolcock (1794- 31 Aug 1860) (death regn). Her parents married on 18 Nov 1820, and Mary was baptized on 26 Aug 1821. Her father was a mine carpenter. Mary is at home with her parents and siblings in the 1841 census. Mary’s mother is last recorded in the 1851 census, and her father is last recorded in the 1871 census.

There is more about this family at these 2 web-sites:

Justus Angwin (1819-1895) was baptized on 2 April 1819. In the 1841 census he is a copper miner at home with his parents and siblings. He married Mary Williams on 31 Oct 1842. In 1851 Mary and their 2 sons Justus and John were with her mother-in-law and 2 of her sister-in-laws. The family left Cornwall for Victoria between 1851 and 1857. Known children are:
