Hello to all at Top Dog, I am searching for further information about a family which is living at Cordier Hill, St Peter Port, Guernsey in the 1851 census. I believe the senior members are my great great grandparents George Alexander Ross, (b. Scotland) and Sarah Ross (nee Clarke) who married 28 January, 1819 at St Paul's, Covent Garden, Middlesex. On Guernsey, George is recorded as the Postmaster. Two daughters, Louisa and Matilda who is married: surname, Deburg, with an unnamed child, Deburg, aged 4 yrs. are living there but the two boys Samuel and George, who appear on the 1841 Census at Lambeth, Surrey on the mainland with the family, are not recorded therein. If the records match, I have the 1841 Census for Lambeth, Surrey, which records George and Sarah Ross, with four children, Matilda, Louisa, Samuel and George. All children were baptised in Westminster, Middlesex and Kennington, Surrey between 1821 and 1830. George William Ross, being my great grandfather, married Cordelia Pople in Bloomsbury, St George, 15 March, 1853 and after having two daughters, Ada and Minnie, subsequently immigrated to Victoria, Australia, where they settled in the gold-mining town of Ballarat. He is recorded an being a postal worker. Also, a George W. Ross appears back in England in 1851, St Giles, London as a lodger and clerk in P.O. but it states that he was born on Jersey, Channel Islands, so I am somewhat confused as to the connections to these individuals. I am in Victoria, Australia and regrettably, there is little known about the family prior to their arrival in Australia, in any living branch of my Ross family. It seems as though no-one was told or no-one knew the history. As a result am turning to you for assistance with the Guernsey family which seems to disappear after the 1851 census. Hope you can be of assistance, Wendy Ross.
