Kay's Genealogy Page

Welcome to my World!

G'day!! My name is Kay Hinnrichsen and I live in Western Australia, although I was born and bred in South Australia. Because of my father's occupation as a Bank Manager we lived in various towns around the state. However I have always felt that Barmera was my 'home town' in the Riverland district of South Australia. The majority of my schooling was at Barmera Primary and Glossop High School.

I trained at Royal Adelaide Hospital and graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1970. I came to Western Australia that same year, remarried in 1971 (my first husband Harold Robert MUSICKA was killed in Vietnam in 1969) and completed my midwifery training at King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women in Perth in 1973.

I now work in the domiciliary field of nursing in Mandurah, a city with about 47,000 people, situated on the coast about 75 kilometres south of Perth. Mandurah is renowned for its fish, crabs and prawns and is very tourist oriented.

I have been tracing my family tree for about 10 years now. My search so far reaches from Australia to England via Tonga in search of my own family roots and to England, Denmark and Germany for my husband's. I am also searching for my first husband's roots and so far have reached from Australia to England.

Kay's Family

Wilson, Jolly, Bosanko, Nankivell

Reverend Matthew WILSON (1808-1876) became a Wesleyan Methodist Minister in 1835 and spent 19 years in Tonga as a missionary before coming to South Australia in 1854. From the time of his departure from England until two weeks before his death in January 1876 he kept Journals which are safely housed in the Mortlock Library in Adelaide South Australia, along with letters to and from family in England. The Journals give a wonderful insight into their way of life in the islands, of the people and their culture and also record the births and deaths of Matthew and Maria's (nee SMITH) 8 children.

Matthew was born near Bradford in Yorkshire England on 1 July 1808 according to his journal, but I have been unable to verify this despite many searches of parish records by a researcher in Bradford.

Names that are mentioned in Matthew and Maria's letters to and from their family in England include:

John WILSON (of Oakenshaw) - probably Matthew's brother

John and Hannah GLEDHILL - possibly Matthew's sister

James WILSON (Rev) - definitely Matthew's brother

Bateman and Maria - probably James' children by his first marriage to Martha BATEMAN

Jabez and Hannah WILSON (b 18 Jan 1836) James WILSON's twins by his second marriage to Hannah (nee STEAD)

William SMITH

Thomas ?WILSON (uncle)

Jonas WORSNUP - ? married Matthew's sister Sarah

? WADSWORTH and ? SHIRE(S) (aunts)

Mary SMITH (cousin)

Maria BEDFORD (cousin)

Sarah (nee WILSON) - Matthew states in his journal on March 4 1846 "....My dear sister Sarah died May 6 1844. It is now two years since she passed through the valley and I have only just heard of it......"

These are all clues that have helped in identifying some relationships, so if you see a possible connection please email me!

I have also learnt that Matthew's brother James married a third time to Margaret (nee BARNES) and had a daughter Margaret by this marriage. James lived to be almost 92 years old.

As far as I can now ascertain Matthew and James' parents were John and Sarah (nee LOCKWOOD).

Some names linked in South Australia are TONKIN, KINGSBOROUGH, LILLYWHITE, GOODE and LEAKE.

Henry BOSANKO was born in Crowan, Cornwall England in 1812 and came to South Australia in 1854. He was the 11th child of Thomas and Mary (nee CHERGIN). He and his family settled in South Australia. Other members of the family also came to Australia, while the eldest brother Samuel went to America and the youngest, Alexander, remained in Cornwall. So far I have traced the family back to Samuel BOSANKO and Florence GUNDRY who were married in Cornwall in 1762. I am interested in any BOSANKO or BESANKO families.

Samuel (bp 1763)

William JOLLY was the 3rd son of Joseph and Elizabeth (nee JOLLY) and was born at Roscarrick in Budock, Cornwall England in 1846 and came to South Australia in 1854 via South Africa and Mauritius. He led a very interesting life in the East Indies, Calcutta and back in South Australia. He served an apprenticeship as a printer at Mount Barker in South Australia and also worked as a storekeeper in Moonta SA before returning to Adelaide to the Government Printing Office until his retirement. So far this family has been traced back as far as Joseph JOLLY and Mary BOND who married prior to 1743 in Cornwall. I am interested in any JOLLYs as I have quite a lot of information on this line.

Known children of Joseph and Mary were:

John (1743 - 1814) m Elizabeth STANNAWAY (1746)

Henry (bp 1745)

John and Elizabeth had the following children:

Edward NANKIVELL the son of Edward and ? (NICHOLLS) was born in Tavistock, Devon in 1821 and came to South Australia in 1857. His son Edward, started work in the mines at Burra at the age of 9 or 10, but at the age of 26 took up farming. Other branches of the family also came to Australia as well as going to America and New Zealand. A lot of work has been done on this family by many researchers and records of my family go back to Richard possibly born around 1700 in Cornwall. There has been a lot of work done on this family by several people.

My first husband Harry (Harold Robert) was killed in South Vietnam on 19 January 1969. The name MUSICKA is believed to be White Russian or Polish. So far I have traced from Williamstown in Victoria, Australia to Reading in Berkshire, England. Lloyd George Musicka married Doris Edna Rose FENN.

Other names in Harry's family include

Wood, Coles, McKean, Hodges, Pannell.

Other names of interest that link into my family are

Tonkin, Rowe, Grillett, Matthews, Smith, Rundle, Watters, Sow(u)ton, Wearn, Eustice.

Daryl's Family

Hin(n)richsen, Hurst, Rogers, Faram

Jurgen Jordt HIN(N)RICHSEN son of Nicholay and Catherina Maria (nee RIEBER) was born in Flensburg, Schleswig Holstein in 1860. He came to Australia in 1887 after working as a seaman on various ships around the world. He came to Western Australia after spending some time in Victoria as a kitchenhand and ended up as a chef in Perth. So far I have traced this family to Hans HINRICHSEN born about 1680 in Schleswig Holstein.

Abraham HURST son of Abraham and Anne (nee HOWLETT) was born in Claybrook, Leicestershire, England in 1805 and arrived in Western Australia with his family in 1842 on the second ship to land at Australind, the "Diadem". The family took up farming in the South West of the state. So far I have records back to Abraham HURST born 1748 in Claybrook Leicestershire.

John Henry ROGERS is a mystery still at this stage. All that is known of him is that he married Marianne DUNSTAN (nee JONES), and was living in Auckland New Zealand when his daughter Amy Margaret was born in 1884. He was 53 years old at the time. On her birth certificate it stated that he was born in Massechusetts USA.

Frederick FARAM son of Thomas and Elizabeth (nee ASTBURY) was born in Cheshire, England in 1844. In the early 1900s two of his daughters, Polly and Lizzie came to Western Australia. Polly became a teacher at Leederville in Perth then moved to a school in Fremantle before going to Boyanup in the South West where she met and married Charles Preston HURST. So far I have records back to John FARAM born 1760.

Other names of interest that link into Daryl's family are
