  • Notes 
    • I couldn't find what happened to Sarah and David until I found this book. I kept getting the David James Anderson who married Ann Brown in the same area and it was very confusing. I obtained Frederick William Anderson's death certificate which lead me to Sarah & David. As I said, I got the infromation out of the book on Angels of Geraldton. I have lent the book out at the moment, so cannot refer to it. Hope this helps. Any other information you require, I'd be happy to send if I have it.
      On the marriage certificate it has David James Anderson as the father. he was a shoemaker. I have seen his name written as David
      (James) Anderson, so feel his name is David, but the confusion comes in with the other David Anderson.
      ------------------------------------
      Janice Hayes (nee Hale) - janhale-at-nw.com.au

      Description: the reference to him being known as David or Daniel is probably wrong, especially if James turns out to be the convict James.

      The James Anderson who arrived on the "Victory" in 1854 with his father William and Mother Eliza was only 12 years old. This fellow can't be the same James Anderson the shoemaker from Toodyay who died in 1867 aged 38. The dates are all wrong.

      I'm positive that this is the wrong James Anderson and we need to find another. I've been researching James Anderson the convict #507 who was 18 years old when sentenced to Transportation at the Old Bailey in October 1848. The Old Bailey court records are searchable online. He was convicted for a housebreak and enter. He was sent to Fremantle on the "Pyrenees" in 1851, then sent to North Fremantle Hiring Depot. There was a convict depot established at Toodyay and I suspect he was sent there but cannot locate the record of it, it is a small piece in my puzzle that I would like to find. He was pardoned in April 1854.

      On arrival to the colony his occupation was noted by the Comptroller of Convicts as "portmanteau maker and saddler". Portmanteau = bag or suitcase. We can see that this occupation is related to his trade as a boot and shoe maker.

      There also appears to be a record that he is the half brother of Charles Adams who established the heritage homestead of "Mangowine" in the Toodyay district; Adams was the informant on Anderson's death certificate. See my comments under "Sarah Kennedy" where Adams assumed the running of Anderson's bootmaking business on the death of Anderson.
      -----------------------------------
      Gary Angel - 2009 - gary-at-gidgenet.com.au

      I don't believe that Charles Adams and James Anderson were half brothers. I think that information was one of those red herrings that pops up every now and again in genealogy research. They certainly had some sort of relationship, but I don't think they were related. Adams was a special constable - some sort of honorary policeman for the remote areas out back of Northam. Anderson I believe is my convict in the family. But the records that prove he is convict 517 have not surfaced. James Anderson was convicted of a housebreak in London and sentences at the Old Bailey to 7 years transportation to Western Aust. I have records of him stationed at the North Fremantle Convict Depot - on arrival he was described as a portmanteau maker - which is a leather worker making saddles and bags. It is not drawing a long bow to suggest that he was also a bootmaker, which is the occupation of our James Anderson of Toodyay. However I was never able to turn up a record of the James Anderson of North Fremantle Depot being relocated to the Toodyay Convict Depot. It could well have been the case but its only speculation in my imagination and the hard evidence is not there. There is also no evidence that he was referred to as David or Daniel. Another red herring I believe.

      Sarah Anderson has also proved very difficult ancestor to research. Once again I am speculating that she came out on a bride ship - but no records have turned up of her entry into the country and no record of her birth here. Speculating again I think she got domestic work with a farming family in Toodyay, then met James Anderson and became Mrs Anderson. Although there was no actual marriage. After Anderson's death in 1867 of a heart attack, she referred to herself as Mrs Anderson in newspaper adverts placed to collect debts relating to the bootmaking business. She married Henry Looke in Perth and described herself on the marriage certificate as Sarah Kennedy her maiden name, not Anderson. She also named her father on the marriage cert as Frederic Kennedy, watchmaker of Coventry.

      I have heaps of info about Fred Kennedy's military career in Britain, his retirement from the military due to ill health and ultimately his death in 1854. Coventry was the centre of watchmaking trade in industrial England in the 19th century, with many small time operators working from home.

      Sarah herself may have been born in the West Indies or Malta as her father was stationed with the military at various times in these parts and the family travelled with him. But I can't turn up a birth cert for Sarah. I also can't positively ID Sarah as part of this military family. She's 19 by the time a census occurred in 1851 and I think she's moved away from the family to work as a domestic servant or she has been sent to a girls school in London. So she doesn't show up as living in the same household as Frederic Kennedy, wife and children.

      Have reached so many dead ends in my research. Tentatively close on many lines of inquiry but can't quite produce irrefutable evidence.
