Vicki,

If you join the forum at www.rootschat.com you will find my post in the Australia section about Thomas and Martha Bateup. We can then exchange contact details if you wish.

Ian Clapham:

Vicki,

I think Mercy died Oct 1837 at Rye. Have ordered a death certificate for her, she was aged 52 which fits with being born 1785. There is a Lucy Richardson buried at Brede in Oct 1837, probably a mistranscription.

Reluctant to post an email address here but would like to send you some more Richardson info.

William arrived in Sydney on the Augusta Jessie in Oct 1837. He was a stone cutter.

Vicki Burgess:

Hello Ian,

She is Mercy's mother; Mary Furner nee Coleman. The James living with her is the son of Thomas and Mercy Richardson (brother of your Thomas). He also went to NZ.

Thanks,

Vicki

Vicki Burgess:

Hello Ian,

I am from William's line; the brother of your Thomas who came to Australia. Yes, there is stacks of info on the Furners but nothing on Thomas and Mercy, or any Richardsons further back. I don't even know where to look for Thomas prior to his marriage. There is no mention of him in any of his kids obituaries. The only thing I have is that he may have been a stone mason. Other researchers say Mercy came to Australia and died at Waterloo, but there is no record confirming that. Her daughter Martha lived at Redfern, so it is possible I suppose that Mercy was at Waterloo.

Take care,

Vicki

Mairi Rowan:

Hello Vicki,

In my foraging for Brede Richardsons I came across a census for 1841 which might be relevant to your line. It shows Mary Furner 75 yrs (rounded down), living in Cackle Street with James and Mary Richardson both 20 yrs (also rounded down), and what are likely to be their children, Mary Richardson 2 yrs and James Richardson 9 months. James is an Ag Lab.
Is Mary Furner the mother of your Mercy?

I have a digital image, but I don't have an email address for you.

I hope this helps.

Ian Clapham:

Vicki,

I am descended from Thomas Richardson son of Thomas and Mercy, who came to NZ in 1841, and would like to make contact. Where do you fit in.

I too have not had much luck in finding anything on the Richardson side beyond Thomas who married Mercy. Plenty on the Furner side.

Animal Sanctuary Needs Volunteer Workmen

6th December 2015

Jane Sexton:

Hello,

Greenacres Animal Sanctuary on Stubb Lane houses mostly cats who have been subjected to dreadful ill treatment. They are in desparate need of help from semi skilled retired volunteers in order to build more sheds and small wooden huts as shelter. The wood is generously being supplied by a local company and the small staff there have had a wonderful man who builds small sheds and other genious things from odds and ends. He is now unable to give them any time as his work is taking up all his time, so we hope there might be some retired kind men in the Brede area who could help before winter sets in and things become dire. I am afraid no money is available just the satisfaction of knowing your efforts have helped sad animals learn to trust until they are hopefully well and rehomed. Anyone with their own ideas of what might be useful would be doubly worshipped!
I can be contacted on ejasexton@aol.com if anyone out there can help or you have a query.

Many thanks,

Jane Sexton
(Pottery Lane)
