Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: When he died in 1962 his father was said to be William Church CLOWES and his mother as Charlotte Rebecca HALL. When he married for the first time he was said to be 'from Norfolk'.
    * Our William Church CLOWES married Charlotte BASE on Norwich in 1858. There is NO OTHER William Church CLOWES in the English records. Our William Church was already living in Queensland at the time of Albert's wedding, so you would think that the notice would read 'son of' if he was in fact tee Albert born to our couple.
    * The Albert born to our William and Charlotte would have been 95 in 1962. I believe whoever gave the info for the death registration got his mother muddled up with his first mother-in-law, therefore on balance I am putting his as a child of our William Church and Charlotte. Proof will be finding his age at death.
