Great-Great Grandparents Hoare

William George Hoare – born 5th January 1842
in Cornwall

Georgiana Lawrence – born 15th April 1847
in Middlesex

In June 1862 George Isaac and Ann Fletcher Lawrence left London aboard the ‘Whirlwind’. They were accompanied by their three children – Georgina 15, William 9 and Eliza Annie 2. William died aboard ship and Eliza died in South Brisbane a few days after arrival. George Isaac worked as a grocer until his death 7th March 1883.

William Hoare – no record found on passenger lists bound for Australia.  According to his death certificate he must have arrived late 1863 or early 1864.

William and Georgina married 17th June 1864 in Brisbane. William Hoare died at 48 years on 17th February 1890 leaving Georgiana 11 children.

Only 10 days after William’s death, 10-month old Elizabeth Alice died 27th February 1890.

The strain of loss affected her and she left the family and moved to Sydney alone.  15 years later she married again, aged 57. She lived to 91, and died in 1938.
