Hi David, I believe the Thomas Elford you speak of is my Great x4 Grandfather.

He was born Hampshire England 1830, married Rosetta Barrett 10 July 1858 in Dungog NSW Australia, and died 4 August 1902, buried in Port Maquarie NSW Australia, next to Rosetta. I don't have his date-of-birth, however the dates you say he sailed to Australia seem to fit.

I descend from Thomas Henry Elford - being one of the 10 children Thomas and Rosetta.

Do you have any info you'd like to share? Do you have Thomas and Rosetta's dates of birth? I only have the year.

Hope to hear from you. Kind regards.

I have checked out the site and as I thought no date of birth for Thomas but there is a difference in place of birth. We have him down as Ston Easton Somerset which is were his family lived for generations his brother David Elford was a Stone Mason in Ston Easton until his death in 1900's I doubt he was born in Hampshire but he could have. As Thomas left for Oz in 1853 there should be a referance for him in 1851 census. I do not have access to Ancestry so cannot check it out at the moment.

Regards

Hi All,

Just seen the postings. Thomas born 1830 at Ston Easton, Somerset is correct and did emigrate to Australia. Proof of parentage is on his marriage certificate in Oz.

This Thomas did not marry Rosetta Barrett.

I too am from Thomas Elford who married Rosetta Barrett.
Thomas Elford born 2 2 1834, Hamble le Rice Hampshire, to John Elford and Anne (nee Patience), who were married in the same place 18.10.1831. Anne was in the Hamble le Rice poorhouse in 1841 census with her two sons, Thomas and George, and there alone in 1851. I am currently researching his father John Elford, born 1732 without much success. I have uploaded a photo of Thomas to the Wensing family tree. Any info on Jojn will be well received.
