I am interested in this posting...my research is OSBORNE. Do you have any
other information on Mary Ann CLARKE nee OSBORNE i.e. Birth Place, Marriage
Place?? Could there be a link for me??????
My George OSBORNE was a Licensed Victualler in Geelong. He was born in
Bristol UK and emmigrated to Australia in 1853. His family in Bristol UK
are listed in the 1841 and 1851 Census and then I lose the girls completely
as I haven't been able to trace their married surnames. One of his sisters
was Mary Ann OSBORNE. MAYBE?? she also came across to Australia!
Anything else Robyn?
