    thank you. I don't seem to have a death date for RH Collom senior. I assume Emily is the Emily J Bowyer who died Kensington 1959. I should add these are not direct relations of mine.[V M was Violet May, nee Wood] footnote - the Hatfield bombing killed 21 and injured 70

    thank you very much. Yes I have seen that. I'm afraid I find divorce papers rather enthralling - the details of what happened where and with whom etc.

    Janet had ten siblings and six of those fall into my disappeared category. The big problem I had with this family is the spelling of Hockly, sometimes it is Hockley. The slippery six are :-

    - George Cleghorn Hockly born Calcutta 1845

    - John Davis Hockly born Calcutta 1847

    - James Hambly Hockly born Calcutta 1849, married Agnes Amelia Austin in Calcutta 1871. I think she died the following year. Then James may or may not have married Charlotte Ingold in Australia in 1891

    - Richard Shaw Hockly born Kidderpore 1851

    - Septimus Williamson Hockly born Kidderpore 1853. On the 1881 census in Stoke Damarel with sister Janet. Possibly the "SWH" 'lunatic' naval pensioner on the 1911 census at Barming, Maidstone, Kent ???

    - Clarissa Ann Ruth Hockly born Kidderpore 1856

    I guess if the males were naval types that makes it harder. Of course some of the six may have died in India as babies though I can't find records for them. They were all baptised in India.


    the remaining four siblings I've dealt with

    Thomas Ross Hockly 1841-1910
    William Henry Hockly 1843-1866
    Emma Eliza Hockly 1846-1889
    Charles Twynam Hockly 1854-1919

    the parents of all eleven (including Janet) were Thomas Henry Hockly (1817-1881) and Janet, nee Cleghorn (1819-1858). She died in Calcutta. He remarried in 1859 to Helen Forbes Leith. Thomas and Helen both died in London, she in 1885.

    I decided the unknown father of illegitimate Edwina must have been Italian or Spanish !

    apparently his gravestone at Happy Valley also includes the name Ruby Collom 1899-1979. I never quite worked out who she was.

    .
    The Charlotte Ingold who married a James H Hockley could be the one in the 1913 Electoral roll with her husband James Hambour Hockley at Worrigeree Street Nowra. There is also a Charlotte Hockley listed, on her own, for the same year at Ballina. The two places are about 913 klm apart
    Two deaths for two different Charlotte Hockleys. One in 1925 at Canterbury district NSW parents William and Catherine. The other in 1929 in the Nowra district parents John and Mary L.
    There is also a a report of a James Hockley losing, whilst in Sydney in August.1888 his Waltham watch with chain and accessories, 4 cheques made out to him and his cheque book.
    Also a warrant out for a James H Hockley's alias Jemmy the Cook in 1899. So 2 James Hockleys with the middle initial H?
