Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: The Ann CHUGG found with the Coates family in 1851 was listed as married, and as being born in Ilfracombe..
  • Research note 02: Ann Coats CHUGG came to Australia when 40 years old with George FORD (41) a plasterer on the 1460 ton ship "Carpentaria" which left Liverpool on the 12th of May 1854 and arrived in Melbourne Aug 1854. The master was Mr McLarty. They were unassisted passengers and occupied cabin 53 with Benjamin FORD aged 27 years, a miner. He might have been a brother or cousin of George.

    George could not write and it is not known if he was previously married in England or if there were any children. George and Ann took up residence in Francis st, Collingwood and resided there until 1889-1890.
    It was after the deaths of her cousins, John & Mary COATS that George & Ann were married in 1870 at Geelong. This might have been so they could adopt John, Robert & William although there were no real adoption laws at the time. Ann & George both died at Francis St.

    John was John Gardner COATES who inherited £100 from his parents in 1896.

    Ann Coats FORD, death cert # 1558, died 25 Feb 1889 of malignant liver disease at Francis St, Collingwood.

    Editors note: the certificate is of poor legibility. Age at death looks like 45, but should read 75..10
  • Research note 03: In 1870 Ann took over the upbringing of her Cousin John COATES and Mary (Nee ROWE)'s recently orphaned children (4)..
