Alexander Wood d 1906 Yankalilla

I am trying to find the parents of this man who died in 1906 aged 85. He went to Australian in 1849 on board the Posthumous and grew fruit in Yankalilla. He founded the Woodvale Orangery. He was supposed to be born in Jedburgh, Roxburghshire but I can't find a birth for him. Is there anything in the Australian records to help. His wife was Augusta E and he had 7 daughters who survived him. I only have the names of some

Lillie Alice, 3rd Augusta C, 5th Amy Aurora, and the youngest Edith Maud. All the daughters might help my search for his parents but any other Woods in the same area might help too?

Re: Alexander Wood d 1906 Yankalilla

Oh, Barbara South Australia the most difficult state.

I will have a look but it will probably require some searching next time I'm at the NSW State Library.

Death 1906 Book 320 page 221 WOOD Alexander - Relative = undefined District = Yankalilla

Death records on-line usually list the name of the spouse as the 'relative' and nothing there.

More detailed records of events in SA are in books at the State Library. No guarantee it will list parents.

Re: Alexander Wood d 1906 Yankalilla

Is it, typical! And Jedburgh is one of these places with a lot of non conformist churches so hard to find people so we are in difficulties before we start!
:roll eyes:

I managed to find some of his daughter's marriages on trove but not all.

Story in one paper is he left Jed aged 18, went to England (where?), trained as an engineer and did well on the railways but decided to emigrate. But I take these stories with a pinch of salt. Not found a definite in the census in the Uk but not an easy name.

Re: Alexander Wood d 1906 Yankalilla

WOOD Alexander arrived in SA 1849-06-20 aboard Posthumous from London via Plymouth 49-03-13


1853 Book 15 page275 WOOD Alexander - WEYLANDT Augusta District = Adelaide

Better chance for parents being listed on the record of the marriage in the book at the SLNSW.

Death 1929 Book 511 page575 WOOD Augusta Elsie - Alexander WOOD [DH] Adelaide

In this case the deceased husband is listed as the relative on the on-line entry.

Looking at the papers as we speak Gibbo, nothing as yet.
