Surname Meme

December 17, 2011

A few weeks ago before I left for the History and Genealogy Cruise , I noticed  on his Destination Austin Family Blog,  Thomas MacEntee had revived Craig Manson of GeneaBlogie‘s meme from 2009.  At the time I was much too busy and pre-occupied to devote the time to a Meme, however much I wanted to, so here at last is my Surname Meme.
How The Meme Works

To participate, do the following at your own blog and post a link  in the comments of  Thomas’ post:

1. List your surnames in alphabetical order as follows:

[SURNAME]: State/Province (county/subdivision), date range

2. At the end, list your Most Wanted Ancestor with details!

JONES:  Australia (Tasmania) until 1857; (Victoria, Australia ) 1857 –

TAYLOR: Wales  (Pembrokeshire, Haverfordwest,) until 1842; Australia : (Diamond Creek) 1842-1848; (Whittlesea) 1848-1890; (Bundalong/Yarrawonga) 1879 –

LLOYD:  Wales (Pembrokeshire, Haverfordwest, Wales) 1780 –

WATERS: England (Bedfordshire, England) 1700-1880; Australia (Strathalbyn South Australia) 1857-1860; 1860 – ; (Rochester) 1876 – ; (Echuca) 1875 -; (Shepparton) 1925 –

MORRISON: Scotland (Glenshiel, Ross & Cromarty) 1780 – Australia (Heathcote) 1866 to 1890; (Echuca) 1900

GILMOUR: Ireland  until 1900; Australia (Ballarat/Sebastapol, Victoria, Australia) 1850-

LOUDEN: Scotland (Rutherglen, Lanarkshire) 1800 – Australia (Geelong, Victoria, Australia) 1851 – 1860 (Sebastapol/Ballarat) 1860

BOYLE: Ireland (Donegal)1857, Australia (Violet Town, Victoria) 1857

CALNAN Ireland  (Kilkenny) 1800 – 1850, Australia (Violet Town, Victoria) 1845 –

My most wanted ancestor – This would definitely have to be my 3 x great grandfather John TAYLOR from Pembrokeshire, Haverfordwest, Wales.  He was born in 1814 and died before 1841. Frustratingly I haven’t been able to find a death certificate of parish record entry for his death. Any help with this kindly accepted.
