Judith,  Look what I just found about Robert HOOD and Matilda his wife (Elizabeth Jane Isabel HOODs) parents

It appears to have been written by Elwyns own daughter !!!!

This following one is from facebook and mentions Robert & Matilda and the ship they arrived on in Melbourne


found it doing a google search for Robert HOOD who married Matilda HOOD if the facebook link doesn't work

Seems Robert & Matilda HOOD were cousins


Judith,   I have just found this notice in a Sydney paper about Elwyns marriage - didn't show up before because of the different spelling of Heazlewood - seems that Elwyn was known as Ella and not her sister

If she was known as Ella then surely she wouldn't have a sister with the same name?


Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954), Saturday 15 September 1900, page 1

HAZLEWOOD -HAMILTON. –September 1, at Holy Trinity Church, Hobart, Herbert Arthur, second son of C B. Hazlewood, Grenville, Hagley, Tasmania, to Elwyn (Ella), eldest daughter of Mrs. Hamilton, of Sydney .

thanks so much  Elizabeth   this info is all amazing -  interesting! marriage notice records mother as Hamilton? certainly all a bit of a puzzle .  So Elwyn Elizabeth was known as Ella and her sister  well this another puzzle..  now as for the history of the Irish Hoods  -  I will need to really study this -  pity so many people have the same Christian names but I feel now there is some family connection to our Elwyn (Ella)and why she was so interested in Edith Forster  - that Hood history is 'mind boggling'    who is this Elwyn Soutter?  again first name Elwyn - now that's not coincidental!!

I apologise  -  I am not really familiar on using this program  - I need to read the instructions - and learn how to send messages correctly.

in the meantime Elizabeth   - both Pat and I thank you for all your invaluable help    Judy 

Judith,   I will send you a friends request including my email address as I am still not getting notifications of your replies & have to keep checking  - might be easier to communicate that way?  up to you

I thought that Elwyns daughter married a SOUTTER but I might be just imagining it !!!  there is definitely a connection isn't there?  I will have to check tomorrow as signing off for the day


I looked up Elwyn Soutter on Google  -  he appears to be an historian (Irish)   I didn't read all the article but don't believe he is a direct family connection

I think this would be much easier to use your email if you don't mind   Judy

Judith,  I have sent the request - hope you received it

just found a headstone photo for Herbert & Elwyn HEAZLEWOOD


sorry about the SOUTTER confusion - must have been something I had seen while researching yesterday - I do so many each day sometimes I get mixed up!

Hope to hear from you soon via email as it will make it easier
