On This Day - BUTLER and MUSTELL

30 Aug 1910 (100 years ago) - Mary Jane BUTLER (nee NICHOLSON) was buried at Rookwood Cemetery, Sydney NSW Australia. Mary Jane is something of a mystery. She was allegedly born at Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ireland, c1828-1830, a daughter of Richard NICHOLSON, a soldier. I think she is probably the Sarah Jane NICHOLSON who married Robert BUTLER in NSW in 1856. [Great-great-grandmother, James Campbell Webster line]

31 Aug 1822 (188 years ago) - Anne MUSTELL was born in London, Middlesex, England. She was the daughter of Thomas MUSTELL and Anne VAUGHAN, and the wife of William James WEBSTER. Anne was buried in the Old Cemetery, Camberwell, Surrey, England, on 2 Sep 1891 (119 years ago this week). [Wife of my great-great-granduncle]

If you are researching these families, I will gladly provide full details of my sources, which include a family bible, a letter from Camberwell New Cemetery, and marriage and death certificates. My thanks to Anne Reece and Rhonda Newell for their help.

The idea for this weekly feature came from Linda McCauley's Documenting the Details. I use On This Day, a companion product for The Master Genealogist, to generate a list of events for the week.
