    Reference 6076 
    Died 13 May 1912  14 Abbot Grove, Clifton Hill, Victoria, Australia Find all individuals with events at this location  [4, 5
    • "On the 13th May, at his residence, 14 Abbott-grove Clifton Hill, William Mallett, husband of the late Mary Mallett (now reunited), father of Jane, Emily and William, grandfather of William Moore, William Clarke, Elizabeth Johnston, Lilly and Ernest Mallett. aged 93 years, 6 months. A colonist of 60 years."

      The above death notice taken from "The Age" newspaper, implies that the oldest daughter Elizabeth must have died, but it also implies that she was married and had a child, since 3 grandchildren with 3 different surnames are mentioned, one husband for each of the 3 daughters. It clearly states that William's wife Mary was already dead, and implies that the son Mark died. It also indicates that there was a second son, William, who must have been born in Australia after the family's arrival there, since he was not listed on the ship's manifest when they immigrated.

    • The Marriage Index reference for William is incomplete, because part of the page is missing. It is clear, however, that the marriage was registered in Sherborne, in the June quarter, Volume 8, Page 17_ (the digit(s) after 17 have been torn away). The GRO birth index for William and Mary's second child Jane gives the mother's name as "Clothier", and we find a Mary Clothier recorded in the marriage indexes in the June quarter in Sherborne, Volume 8, page 179.
