Hallen Family Genealogy Forum
Dear John....thanks for you further reply. Think it was you who mentioned a George Hallen before?
I have seen 'George' before on the SA Births register. It lists him as having a son ALFRED REGINALD HALLEN in 1885 in Adelaide (Mitcham) and another son, GEORGE HERMAN HALLEN in 1882 in Mitcham Adelaide. The mother of both was EMILY HARROD. I have not traced any connecton to mine but there could be. Where did you find the information about George jumping ship?? 'My' HALLEN was CHRISTINA SOPHIA and her father was ANDREW HALLEN. I have found him (probably him!, as the name is not common) in shipping arrivals in Victoria. He seems to have been married to a CATHERINE GUNNERSON/GUNNARSON and they were of Swedish origin and may have arrived as a married couple with children already born in Sweden. Also have found a CHARLES WILLIAM HALLEN who was naturalised in 1861, lived Amherst, Victoria (goldfields) and was born in Sweden. Arrived per ship "Harpooner" on 21st Nov. 1853. Perhaps George was connected with him.
Keep me posted on your research as I am sure there will be a connection somewhere! Cheers, Kathy
