Research Notes

  • Research note 02: Strange as it may seem, William and Charlotte had 2 sons named William, both alive at the same time. The first was William Cubitt CLOWES, and the last was William CLOWES. They both died in Queensland, and they both quote parents names on the death Certificate. Going by the dates, it is the youngest William who lived with his mother up until she died (at the age of 95).
  • Research note 01: Charlotte and William (and children) disappear from the records after 1881. I found them in Queensland Electoral Registers, and there are trees on tripod who agree. Most have Charlotte staying in England (or dead) but the Electoral Roll for Wynnum had William farming in Wynumm South with a Charlotte. Charlotte died at the age of 95, showing a father named BASE, so I am sure we have the correct lady..
