William Henry Glasson was the grandson of William Glasson and Elizabeth Ann Dunstan. Married Iris Margeurite King in 1942 at Prospect, SA. He was in fact the son of William Charles Glasson and Mabel Beatrice Moore.
The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA : 1931 - 1954) Wednesday 15 April 1942 KING — GLASSON. —The marriage of Iris Marguerite, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles King, of Blair Athol to William (Bill), only son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Glasson, of Jamestown, will be celebrated at 3 o'clock on April 18, at Prospect North Methodist Church. Reception at home of the bride's parents.
I have found the Edward/Allen marriage, and the family in 1841 census. but cant easily find the birth of this edward in abt 1801. closest I can see is s/o Edward and Eleanor Eustice? baptisms only on the registers for Robert, Ann and Jane for this pair.
Great, that is what I thought, thanks for the confirmation. Were there any more children born to Edward and Eleanor? (apart from Edward) I have found baptisms only for Robert, Anne and Jane. They were married in 1791 and the first baptism that I can find is Robert in 1800. Di
I have been going through the SA CD for female Glasson births in SA A few I have sorted, but one I am having a problem with.

I'm not one of the experts, and I'm not even sure what your question is. But, William and Martha arrived here in 1847 on the Duchess of Northumberland with seven children. The child born here in January was Albert. Or is it the mother's parents that are the problem?
While you didn't ask a specific question, I'm guessing that your query relates to the seeming age discrepancy for Martha between the 1841 census and the baptism in 1805.
Assuming that is the case you need to bear in mind that on the 1841 census, rounding was used (or was supposed to be, as in some cases it was not applied) for adults - over 15 years old.
The census taker was supposed to round the age down to the nearest multiple of 5 (eg. 25, 30, 35, 40, etc). Thus 26, 27, 28 and 29 would all become 25. However it was not even applied.
As a rough guide, if the recorded age is over 15 and not divisible by 5, it is probably the actual reported age. For all other ages that are divisible by 5, the age may be accurate, or more likely it may have been rounded down. (you would need to locate other supporting evidence to confirm which is the correct scenario)
So in the case of Martha, assuming she is the same one born in 1805, she would have been about 35 (perhaps 36?) in 1841 and would likely have had her age rounded down to 30. So yes, based on reported age alone, they could be the same person.
Martha and William had a child 30 jan 1848 in SA and Martha died 1893 aged 88.making her born circ 1805 There is only 1 Martha that I have born abt that time and that is the d/o John and Elizabeth Bottrall
I would suggest that Martha Job was the daughter of Robert Glasson and Jane Clemoe thus making sense of the marriage witnesses being Robert and Mary. She was baptised 5th February 1804 at Newlyn East.
Martha Glasson, baptised 8 Nov 1801 at Camborne was the daughter of John Glasson and Elizabeth Bottrall. She married John Fox in 1839 at Budock.
Thanks, That was why I was questioning Martha's parents as I also have the d/o John and Bottrall as marrying John Fox. I have only found 6 mentions of births to mothers named Glasson, that clears up 3 of them., only 3 to go (from the first SA Births CD)

Mary Elizabeth to Charles Reuben Chapman. Mary Elizabeth died 1892 aged 51. Susan to Alfred Tobias John Martin married 1844 in Madron as d/o John Sarah to David William Morgan.(this one will take time)
Mary Elizabeth was actually Bridget Mary Elizabeth, born in 1850 in Brompton, Kent, UK, daughter of Cornelius Glasson and Eliza Foley. Cornelius was a pensioner guard and came to Australia. He was of Irish descent.
Susan was born in 1820 in Hayle, Cornwall, and was the daughter of John Glasson and Elizabeth Edwards.
I do not have the ancestry for Sarah - as she was married in WA I originally assumed that she was likely related to the Irish Cornelius above and so she therefore slipped down my order of priorities. However, there are a number of entries on Ancestry to suggest that she is the daughter of Richard Tyack Glasson & Mary Tyack and shown online as born in 1868 at Black Springs, SA. When you click on their source for the birth date it shows her as being born in 1862 which is what I agree with. While accepting Ancestry can be doubtful at times, the large amount of photos etc on this record suggests that it could well be correct particularly when this family did end up in WA. The marriage record would prove it either way.
