Hi Elizabeth,
I'm trying to track down the ancestors of my mother's grandfather & great-uncle, the twins Richard and Robert Grayling Jones. They were born 12 January 1873. Richard married Cecilia Eldridge and their children included Cyril Charles, my maternal grandfather. See Eldridge family tree
I found through http://www.familysearch.org the records relating to twin brother Richard and Robert Grayling Jones. They were born in Lexton, Victoria 1873 to James Jones and Susanna Eliza Grayling, daughter of Richard & Jane Grayling nee Luddon.
Kind regards,
Goopy Weaving

8. Agnes Emma Grayling 9 February 1852 wed 1870 #1472 to Thomas Henderson from Adelaide and had 11 children and lived at Lexton

From Henderson family web site

Thomas 1843-1906, and Agnes Emma Henderson, nee Grayling 1852-1925

Janeís parents Thomas and Agnes Emma Henderson were married at Doctors Creek, Victoria. Agnes was born at nearby Burnbank 9 February 1852, the daughter of Richard and Jane Grayling. The Graylings came from Kent to Tasmania in 1836. They moved to Victoria in 1838. Sometime around 1848 they settled at Burnbank.

For more information on the Grayling family see...

Thomas and Agnes Henderson had eleven children. All with the exception of the youngest were born at Woodstock or Doctors Creek. Ethel May Henderson the baby of the family was born at Nhill.

According to Thomas and Agnes Hendersonís Family Bible Jane Luddon Henderson was born at Doctors Creek, near Lexton, on the 16 July 1883. In the bible someone has written in a contemporary hand the dates and places of birth of Janeís parents, Thomas and Agnes and their eleven children. The bible was a gift to Agnes, from her mother Jane Grayling.

Written in ink on the inside cover is...
Agnes Emma Henderson. A present from her mother Jane Grayling. March 30th 1893.

It wasnít uncommon for the Hendersons to include family surnames in their childrenís names. For example the Luddon in Jane Luddon Henderson comes from Janeís grandmother Jane Grayling nee Luddon. She was born in Gibraltar in 1819 and came out to Launceston, Tasmania on her own in 1836. It would appear that Jane was named after her.
