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

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

Hi Caroline,

thank you for that - It is more than helpful. There was a Mary Richardson who immigrated on the same ship as Martha - I wonder if that was actually Mercy.

It is so frustrating not to be able to find a birth for Thomas - his wife Mercy nee Furner is no easy to track back from - but these Richardsons are not so easy!

I don't suppose you have a death or marriage for their daughter Mercy - I can't find any trace of her at all.

Cheers,

Vicki

Hello Caroline,

Thank you so much for your reply - I truly appreciate it.

Could I please trouble you for the names of those 7 children. Gee - I never even thought about transportation for Thomas. Do you know how I could order the marriage certificate for Thomas and Mercy?

Thank you so much again,

Vicki

Hello Caroline,

I am looking for Thomas Richardson supposedly born in Brede around 1780. He married Mercy Furner in a Brede in 1829. I am trying to get past a few stumbling blocks. I can not find a death for him, but think it was 1835 in Brede. All 7 of their children (that I know of) migrated to either NZ or Australia. There is a theory that Mercy also migrated to Australia, but was wondering if you have a possible death in Sussex for her ... Because I can not find any trace of her in Australia.

Or if any parents turn up for Thomas. On one of his sons death certificate,it says Thomas was a mariner, but not sure if that is correct.

Thank you so much,

Vicki
