James Henderson b. abt. 1822 Aberdeen (from English censuses 1861 to 1901)
Anna Maria Clarissa (unknown) b. abt 1826 Dublin (together as a married couple on all the above censuses).
Marriage is likely to be in South Australia, given as place of birth for first 2 children:
Hamilton Gerald Henderson b. abt 1849 and
Charles B Henderson b. abt 1851.
They must have returned to England almost immediately because the next child is
Mary Louise Henderson b. q4 1852 Southampton.
They had 5 more children between 1855 and 1866, all born Truro.
I have most of the family in Cornwall in all the following censuses - 1861 (Truro), 1871-1901 Kenwyn.
So can sks please find the marriage and the first 2 births. I have no experience at all with Australian records. I'm pretty certain James was a mining engineer.
The next generation also went walkabout.
Hamilton Gerald Henderson (see above), also a mining engineer, is in Kenwyn in 1861, 1891 and 1901.
Between 1861 and 1891 he got married (Isabelle M unknown), went to India (first 2 children Constance and Millicent born 1876 and 1877 in Madras) and then to St Croix, Danish West Indies (next 2 children James and Charles born there 1883 and 1885), returned to England (next child Marjorie born Folkestone q2 1886) and finally to Kenwyn where last child Robert was born q1 1890.
I have had a poke around Indian records without success but I have no clue where I'll find the St. Croix births. Until I started on this branch I had no idea the Danes colonised the West Indies.
Any news or ideas on this lot will be most welcome. I'm confident I've found everyone via the English censuses, linked by grandchildren being boarded out while their parents were abroad.
