In Reply to: Shorten' s Down Under In Australia by John Clifford Shorten of 121

Hi John,

I am the descendent of Goymer Shorten and Jane Duce.

Goymer was born in 1818 in Ipswich Suffolk and Jane was born in Drydrayton, Cambridgeshire in 1838 to Ebenezer Duce and Elizabeth Hankin.
They were married in Perth, Tasmania in 1856, where they had 9 children. Their second child, Thomas Henry Shorten, born in Longford, Tas in 1859, married Mary Logan in Launceston in 1889. They had 13 children, several whom died, in Victoria, one of whom was my great grandfather, James Goymer Shorten born in 1892 in Footscray, Vic.
James married Elizabeth Ellen Maguire in 1932 at St. Brendan's Church in Flemington, and they had two children, James Shorten and Patricia Mary Shorten -- who is my paternal grandmother.

For more information, please contact me via e-mail, as I would like any information that you have on Goymer Shorten and Jane Duce.

Sincerely, Louise Cauchi
