COLLINS Edmund (Ned) 1844 to 1851 Campbelltown NSW AUS Details
  • Contact person : Chris Sutton
  • Additional Information : I am trying to track down the existence of a bakery in Campbelltown between 1844 and 1851. Our ancestor Edmund, known in town as Ned Collins, baker, lived with his wife Catherine and their children in Campbelltown in that period. Ned left with William Bursill for the Goldfields in May 1851. “The party included Ned Collins, Jack Haray, William Williams, Bursill snr, Wm Bursill and a lad of 15 years to mind camp and cook.” William A. Bayley, History of Campbelltown NSW. We have a mystery in that we have no idea how Ned, who was a convict, came to move from Wollongong to Campbelltown and take up work as a baker, which was his apprenticeship when he was convicted for highway robbery and sentenced to 14 years transportation. He received his Ticket of leave in 1844 and was permitted to move to Campbelltown but we cannot find a reason why.

CONNOR Henry Abt 1825 Camden NSW AUSTRALIA Details
  • Contact person : Karen Parker
  • Additional Information : I am looking for information about my GGrandfather, Henry Connor, born abt 1825-6, Camden, New South Wales. He lists his father as James Connor and mother as Elizabeth on his children's BC's. There does not appear to be any birth or baptismal record under his name. He first appears in offical recrods in Howlong, NSW, where he is a 'carrier' and appears to marry Elizabeth Atkins (born Essex, England) in Oct 1856 in Albury (no record can be found for this). They proceed to have a number of children and eventually Henry dies of lung disease in Albury Hosptial in 1867. I have spent hundreds of hours searching for clues for the early life of Henry. If anyone has even the tiniest clue I would appreciate it. There appears to be Connors in the Campbelltown area at the time, but I do have not links between my Henry and them, though it is possible there are links.
CONNOR Mary 1850 Campbelltown NSW AUS Details
