From on Sunday, 17 April, 2011
Hi Elizabeth,
Yes - I am a direct descendant of William Escreet and Ellen Murphy. I am their great great great granddaughter. They had 12 children: Ann, Jane, Isabella, Margaret, Thomas, William, John, David, Robert, James, Ellen and George Francis. Their descendants are spread throughout Australia.
This is William's death notice from the Argus dated Sat 8th Sept 1900. “ESCREET- On Friday 7th September 1900, at the residence of his son, William Escreet, junior, Warrenbayne, William Escreet, aged 83 years. A very old colonist.”
William was buried in unmarked grave at Benalla Cemetery. His parents were Thomas Escreet (occupation – weaver) and Ann Waldon according to his death certificate. William was born in Hull, Yorkshire.
William and Ellen Murphy settled in the hills of the parish of Lima but they were regarded as Warrenbayne people because access to their property was easier through the Warrenbayne Valley. They cleared the land for cropping and also ran cattle. His sons were well known for their skills, physical strength and ability to shear and compete in log chops. William Escreet and his family have been written about in a book called, "Warrenbayne and its people" by Patricia G Nottle.
I am descended from his eldest son William Jnr Escreet and his wife Susannah Smith. They had a family of 11 children - Thomas, Ellen, Margaret, Matilda Jane, William Edward, Joseph, Owen James, Susannah Rose, Henry Charles Frederick, Florence May and Robert David John Escreet born 1893 at Benalla.
Kind regards, Nicole
Hi Elizabeth, I have been searching for a shipping/passenger record for Ellen Murphy (William Escreet's wife)
On her death cerificate (16 June 1874) she was said to have lived in Victoria for about 30 years.
I searched the Public Records Office of Victoria's shipping index and found these results from 1842 -1844.
She needed to have been in Victoria before 26 November 1844 when she married William at St James Church in Melbourne.
It seems highly probable that she arrived on the Wallace. Her date of birth is out by 5 years - on her marriage certificate she says she is 17 years old.
