Calf

From on Thu, 24 Aug 2006

Subject: I'm from the OTHER Calf family that emigrated to Oz and the USA

Hello Elizabeth -

I found your Pioneers site through Google today and was delighted to see it. We from the John Calf family knew that another part of the family had emigrated to Australia even before ours (which arrived ca. 1853) but we didn't know the details. I suppose 1853 is too late to be pioneers?!?

This is how our Calfs are related:

all the Calfs in Australia are apparently descended from:
William Calf = Frances Breach
Here they branch - the pioneer family is descended from Wm & Frances's son William, and the other Australian/American family from their son John.

the pioneers
William Calf b 1747 =Frances Breach
William Calf b 1778 =Sarah Batty (I believe - it cannot be Sarah Ann Sophia Cole, who was his grandson's wife)
Frederick Calf b 1810 = Susannah Golden
Frederick Calf b 1849 Australia = Sarah Ann Sophia Cole (and other children of Frdk b 1810)

the other Australian Calfs who arrived in the 1850s:
William Calf b. 1747=Frances Breach
John Calf b. 1790 = (1) Ann Frances Holmes (this John emigrated to Australia ca 1853 with 3rd wife Maria Smith)
John Calf b. 1816 = Elizabeth Wilson (sailor, also emigrated to Australia around the same time)
Edwin John Calf b 1858 Windeyer NSW (and six other children of John b 1816)
many Australian descendants including Brad Chappell who is working on the genealogy

ALSO in Australia: at least one other Calf, child of the above John Calf by his second wife Mary Ann Courtenay:
William Calf b. 1747=Frances Breach
John Calf b. 1790 = (2) Mary Ann Courtenay
Catherine Calf b. 1836 = Alfred 'Frederick' Stone married 1863 Geelong, Victoria at least 4 children [POSSIBLY Catherine's brother William Calf also emigrated although we can't find any trace of him]

the American Calfs (my branch)
William Calf b. 1747=Frances Breach
John Calf b. 1790 = (2) Mary Ann Courtenay
Robert Frederick Courtenay Calf b. 1829 London = Eliza Deacon b 1829 London - they dropped the Calf name and emigrated to the U.S. in 1855-56
Frederick Henry Courtenay b. 1851 Southampton Eng, & sister Laura Frances Courtenay b. 1853 Ireland, plus 3 other children who didn't have issue.
Many American descendants including me

Calfs who stayed in England
William Calf b. 1747= Frances Breach
John Calf b. 1790 = (2) Mary Ann Courtenay
Elizabeth Fanny Courtenay Calf b. ca 1831 London = Edward Henry Glanvill
Edward William Courtenay Glanville b. 1851 m. Eliza Dunn
5 children and many descendants who are probably (!) still in England

If this is not interesting to you, perhaps you could pass it along to someone in the Bainbridge family?

Thank you
Karen in Massachusetts
