Note on Husband: Samuel DAY - shared note

(PRO Ref: RG4/935 Folio: 8)

 

"These are to certify that Samuel, Son of Charles Day and of Elizabeth his Wife, was born in -------- in the Parish of Maidstone in the County of Kent on the twentieth day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eleven.

Registered by me, W Groser, Protestant Dissenting Minister, Dec 20 1825"

 

Samuel Day, a Baptist minister who emigrated with his wife and family to Victoria, Australia in the 1860s. Samuel Day's death certificate, which was issued in Beaconsfield, Victoria on October 12th, 1908, states that he was born in Maidstone, Kent, that he was a retired Baptist minister and that his parents were Charles Day, timber merchant, and Elizabeth Hoedley.

 

His age at the time of his death, according to this certificate, he was 97 years, 23 weeks and 4 days and I'm assuming that the spelling of his mother's maiden name was due to the probability that his granddaughter, Eva Glover Campbell, who informed the registry of his death was unsure of the correct spelling of the name.

 

The same certificate also mentions that Samuel married Eliza Glover in Maidstone, Kent when he was twenty years old.

 

(The family bible says that they married on December 25th, 1831.)

Note on Wife: Eliza GLOVER

Eliza arrived in Australia on the "Perekop" in January 1862 with children Stephen, Ellen, Naomi, Emma.3
