A change of tack for me. I am searching for my sister in law who doesn't have much info for the family member. Her name was Mary Ann Daeth (not death). Her father was John Daeth and she was born around 1856 in England. She came to south australia date unknown, and was married in SA to William Mitchell in 1877. I have the family info re children born in SA but nothing from England. Any help will be appreciated.
The name was probably D'Aeth and looking at the registrations the name does not seem to appear as DAETH until 1867. There are others before that including several Mary Ann in different parts of England transcribed as or as errors as DEATH.
Found a couple of Johns and Mary Anns under DAETH in 1861 and a few more in 1871 Gwen but none together and lots listed under Death or other variations. I can't find passenger listed matches or passport applications but not all the years we need to check are covered.
I did notice that Daeth people were in Lancashire, Yorkshire, Suffolk & London - so they were widely spread and seemingly no specific area to help pinpoint them - are there no more clues, however tiny?
I agree about the D'Aeth name. Had a look on the Mormon site and it was listed there. Unfortunately there is not much info available from the S I L but I do know that she was married in south australia in 1877 and had 10 children here.
Mary Ann is such a well used name from way back then and I think it is like looking for a needle in a haystack but will keep plugging on.
Why do I get the curly ones!! I will check with S I L and see if she has any idea where Mary Ann came from. All I can find is that she was obviously in South Australia by 1877 to be able to get married here but nothing else at this stage. Thanks for looking for me. By the way just found out that South Australian births deaths and marriages are coming on line finally but not sure about site yet.

Thanks for the info. I happened to come across it last night while looking for something else. I will still refer back to the genealogy books and cds I have. Thought it may be something else but may still find something worthwhile. I find the site for the four main cemeteries in Adelaide very useful too. Can get death dates after 1972 and the Centennial Park site is good too. Cheers
I am a descendant of William Mitchell. I have a little info but you may know some of it. I have John Daethe like this & he was born in Staffordshire approx 1830. Mary-Ann Daethe or Daeth was an only child born in Burton-Upon-Trent in 1856. She married William Mitchell in Pirie Street, Parsonage, Adelaide 3rd July 1876. I hope this will help, I do have a little more info if you want.
Thank you for that very good piece of info. Jenny my s in l
asked me to see if I could find any info about her Gran but I could only get back as far as the SA connection and she did not know any more. She will be chuffed with your info and it may give me more to work with. We know about the children of William and Mary Ann, their marriages, families and deaths but not the backwards links. Her name is Jennifer Starkey if that helps you and if you need any info let me know. I will get on to her today via her email but probably won't get a reply for a few days.. Thanks again.
Hi Gwen & Jenny,
Thanks for the offer maybe you can help. I have that William & Mary Ann were both buried at West Terrace Cemetery but could only find Will & his grandaughter in law Kathleen Patricia (which is my hubbies grandma)
Okay so John Daethe's wife died young(name unknown). Protestant. Lived at Burton-Upon-Trent near Birmington. John became an invalid & had the same live-in Housekeeper for 50years. When he died(aged90) Housekeeper & her daughter were allowed to keep the house.William met Mary Ann in Manchester but their familes banned marriage. Mary Ann emigrated 1875 & became housemaid for Mr & Mrs FH Faulding(chemists in Adelaide). William emigrated 1876 & you know the rest, hope it helps.
