    3. Hi everyone I'm new to this list and was hoping someone may have information on the JOHNS family who lived in St Hilary, Cornwall. Names of interest THOMAS JOHNS husband of JANE RAWLINGS SILAS JOHNS is my main interest. SILAS married an Elizabeth Ellen Semmens in May 1862 LUDGVAN. Emily Jane Johns was born in 1863. Their next child was born in Victoria, Australia in 1880. I haven't been able to find any record of SILAS leaving Cornwall and would appreciate help with this. Thank you Jeanette

    3. Hi Jeanette Silas Johns took part in a wrestling match at Long Gully, Victoria, on 26 Dec 1866, so he must have left Cornwall between 1863 and 1866. In the 1871 census his wife (Ellen) and daughter (Emily Jane) were still in Cornwall, living with Ellen's father, Gideon Semmens, at Ludgvan. Ellen and Emily Jane arrived in Melbourne on 29 Apr 1879 on the Northumberland from Gravesend. Ellen died in Jan 1883 when typhoid fever struck the family in Eaglehawk while Silas was away working as a mining manager at Temora in New South Wales. She was buried on 31 Jan 1883 at Eaglehawk cemetery. Silas died on 24 May 1890 at Sailors Gully, Victoria, and was buried on 26 May 1890 at Eaglehawk cemetery.
