    1. ARticle re- Ebbott family
    2. Sandra Williamson
    3. While reseraching in the Geneological Society of Victoria I came accross the following article printed in athe Queensland Family Historian and thought others might be interested. I have not tried to contact jocelyn as I thought she might be able to share some interesting information about the Ebbott family. Has anyone been incontact with her? Sandra "Researching the Cornish name Ebbott (my maiden name), I joined the Cronwall Family History Society to learn more about the people, emigration, etc. After l;istening to our Secretary, Dorothy, at our monthly meetings, begging members to forward their strays to our Stgrays Co-ordinator, Rae, I did just that. But as the Cornwall FHS were also begging for strays I sent my Victorian/Cornish miner strays to Mr. Crigg, the Strays Co-ordinator of the Cornwall FHS, with a request for details of any strays, as strays collected by British Societies before May 1982 are held by the 'home' FHS. As the surname Ebbott is unusual and scare(none of this surname now in the Cornwall or Devon telephone directories) and a number of the children had gone to the USA, I mentioned that Kelly's Post Office Directory 1856 showed a Phillip Ebbott as farming at Trengrine in Treneglos with Warbstow, who was thought to be an older brother of our John who came to Victoria in 1849, with his family. Imagine my delight on receiving Mr. Grigg's reply when he informed me that his parents now farm Trengrine (Trengune) in Treneglos with Warbstow, Mr. Grigg kindly forward details, having searched all possible B.D.M., census, M.I's etc for the Warbstow area. He then advised me that our John's mother Mary Ferrett was a first cousin to his gt-gt-gt-grandfather Peter Ferrett and requested full details of all children. So a big thank you to our Secretary. Now the sad part - the County Recrod Office, Cornwall County Council, Truru, kindly searched their probate records from 1600 to 1857, advising that the wills which were lost in the war were those which were proved at the probate courts in Exeter; most Cornish wills, however, were proved at Archdeaconry of Cornwall probate court, from 1600, about 99% of these survive and are held at thier office. The published index of these Wills listed six Ebbott wills (post 1600) - all these wills are now missing. The Assistant Archivist advised this may just be coincidence, but one is alsmot tempted to imagine that some earlier Ebbott researcher removed them from the probate registry, where the wills were held before their transfere to the County Record Office in the 1950's. The will registers only survive from 1690, so the CRO cannot provide copies from that source..... Please look after the records! Jocelyn McKenzie, 17 Seven Oaks SXtreet, Taringa, Q. 4068"

Both returned no result for her at the address in the article, and the online search returned about 183 McKenzie's with the initial J, in Queensland. I have sent an email to the Secretary of the Queensland Family History Society, asking for information about Jocelyn - whether she is still a member, etc, and, if they have her contact details, asking her to contact me, or, if she is dead and if they have contact details for any of her living immediate relatives, asking them to contact me. It is now a matter of waiting for a response from the Queensland Family History Society. -- Bret Busby Armadale West Australia ..............
