Hi all, my interest is James Trezise and Margaret Mitchell of St Just in Penwith who were married about 1830.
Their sons, James, John, Thomas, Hugh and daughters, Lavinia, Grace all migrated to Ballarat, Australia.
I know alot of research on this family has already been done, but I wonder if anyone can confirm that Margaret Trezise (Mitchell) migrated to Australia with her family.
I found an Incoming Passenger List for the Great Britain depart. Liverpool on 17 Feb 1866. The arrival date in Australia (I think has been transcribed wrongly because the voyage was to take 90 days and Ancestry has their arrival date as Mar 1866, while the Public Record Office of Victoria has it as Apr 1866) was about Mar/Apr 1866.
On the list was: Margt TreYise 48; Hugh 18 labourer; Grace 14; Thomas 20. Then there is an Elizabeth TreYise age 24. Immediately under the TreYise name is John Veal age 15 labourer.
I am thinking this could be the family given that John Veal is possibly the g/son of Margaret (s/o John and Lavinia Margaret Mitchell Trezise). It seems Margaret shaved about years off her age. She listed her occupation but I can't for the life of me read it, looks like it starts with a M.
I can't find a death record for Margt in Australia and haven't searched for one yet in Cornwall.
One Veal[e] families of St Just went out to Oz about the same time as the Trezise family. Lavinia Trezise married John Veal and lived in the Bosorne, Bollowal, New Downs area of St Just. This Trezise family lived in the Bollowal area - just down the road from the above Veale family. John Veal died and the widow and daughters of the family emigrated and one of the daughters married one of the Trezises in Ballerat. I am in touch with a descendant of this Veal[e] family and she is very interesting and has a lot of information. If you wish, I could ask her if she would like to be in touch. By the way, my maiden name was Ellis, and my Ggrandmother was a Veale. I have traced the Veales back to the 1500s, and all the Veales in St Just are related. The Ellis family and the Veale family have married on several occasions. Is this of any use to you? fleur
Hi there, My great grandmother Lavinia Gertrude Trezise is the daughter of John Trezise who is the younger brother of Lavina Margaret Mitchell Veale (nee Trezise). John, and Lavinia Margaret Mitchell are the children of James Trezise and Margaret Grenfell Trezise of St Just, Cornwall - there are 8 children. John settled at Buninyong which is near Ballarat in Victoria - and was one of the first gold miners in this area. Lavinia Margaret Mitchell Veale died in Kalgoolie (a West Australian gold mining town) in 1921 - although her daughters died in Bendigo, her son died in Buninyong. I first came across Lavinia Margaret when I was looking for my great grandmother and felt they had to be related because of the unusual name and the gold mining connection. As John had a son born in Buninyong in 1861 it's likely he migrated tto Australia around this time or earlier. He obviously named my great grandma after his big sister. Others have traced the family Trezise back to 1575 in St Just - quite amazing isn't it! Best Regards Julie Cardiff
Hi .. I am a newbie from Australia and searching my ancestors who come from Cumbrae and Cornwall. I have spent most of my time researching the Scottish side of my family and have written a self-published book on that research. I am now concentrating on the Cornish side of the family which lead me to this website.
Without using any of the expensive so-called ancestry sites I have tracked down the matriarchal side of my family to James Trezise and Richard Cornish, both born in Cornwall, both were miners. Richard Cornish went on to become the manager of the Hustler and Redan mine for about 25 years at Bendigo. In his later years he returned to the 'old country' before coming back to Australia where he died in 1906.
The other family of interest is Isaac Hall who was a mariner with the Coastguard and moved about along the Channel Coast and spent some time in Ireland.
I have a website jamesfordancestors.com which might be of interest.
Hi John. I'm a descendent of James Mitchell the g-father of Lavinia Margaret Mitchell Trezise and have a bit of very interesting info on James Trezise and Lavinia. Contact me via the message page if you are interested Regards Tony M
