12 thoughts on “Kilmore Marriages”

  1. 1885 Marriage: William Henry Hammett to Emma Knights on 29 July 1885 at Kilmore Wesley Parsonage. Parents, respectively, Edmund James Hammett and Mary Rogers Millman: William Knights and Caroline Goulson.


  2. My Mothers maiden was Seaton Caroline Knights, who was the grand daughter of Caroline Coulson; and I have in my possession Caroline Coulsons wedding ring.


  3. Kilmore Marriages 1877. Can’t open any links. Hope this is ok. Listed under 1877 Marriages on Graeme’s site = O’Brien-Hogan – Cornelius O’Brien (parents William O’Brien & Mary née Conway) to Ellen Hogan (parents Matthew and Mary Hogan née Ryan). Small problem, I have Ellen the eldest of five children born in Ireland to Catherine Ryan and Mathew Hogan, 3 children died in childbirth in Ireland. Mathew Hogan, Cooper at Kilmore, 4 Mill St (Heritage Protected) was the brother of my great-great grandfather Michael Hogan. Children of above Maria (Frisby), Catherine (Kate), Amy and Mathew Jnr including their parents Catherine and Mathew Hogan buried at Kilmore. Ellen is at the Burramine Cemetery with two of their children, Cornelius and his son William and daughter Ellen are buried at Fawkner. Help with Mary/Catherine Hogan née Ryan she lived and died in Kilmore! Thanks.


    1. Hi Anne – Thanks for your message. Regarding the link under the 1877 marriage, it should take you to an email page addressed to the person who added the Hogan marriage in our web site. Thats so you can then send an email to the person expressing interest, similar to your message. We have done research on your O’Brien/Hogan family for someone in the past so there will be a file in our collections at the Courthouse. I am at home now so cant check.

      We are taking out annual break now and will reopen at the Courthouse on Tuesday 6 February just in case you were thinking of visiting.

      Our research arrangements are set out on our web site at

      Cheers – Grahame Thom, research officer KHS


      1. Enjoy the rest of your well deserved break. Thank you for responding. I did try the link on that marriage but nothing happened, several times. Thanks anyway. Nearly all the records I have show Ellen’s mother as Catherine including a number of kilmore Press articles. Catherine and her son Mathew died within days of each other. Quite sad but a rather large Kilmore funeral if I am to believe what I have read. I wasn’t there! Thank you again for your help. Anne M
        Refs: Catherine = KP p3 Thur 10 Aug 1905 &
        Matthew son = KP p3 Thur 17 Aug 1905


  4. You wouldn’t believe it! Just tried your suggestion to tap on the name I was interested in and this time got through with the name Margaret O’Callaghan at the top of a blank email. So excited. Wrote message and just received message back. Name and address incorrect – message failed. My excitement disappeared rapidly. Thanks again. Sorry to be such a nuisance.


    1. Hi Anne,
      The Kilmore Births, Marriages and Deaths pages on our site are provided purely as a service to help researchers with common family links to connect. Its origins started in 2000. This particular submission was provided over 17 years ago and unfortunately, people in those days tended to change emails often as they moved from one service provider to another. With web based mail such as gmail, etc there is probably a greater chance of an email address remaining relevant. Unless the submitter informs us of an updated email address we end up with the situation we have here, a dead link. It is questionable whether we should continue to provide this service if the email addresses continue to fail as it just leads to excitement then frustration as you have experienced and we apologise for that. We would be interested to learn your thoughts on this. At this stage, all we can do is remove the email link and just leave the information sitting there; itself a time-consuming task as this particular researcher submitted approximately 30 entries.

      1. Many thanks for your response. In the scheme of things, I would not like to cause any problems and it is wonderful to find like connections. Sad as it seems that no contact can be made to further my research with the person who submitted the details in the first place, I feel have had some wonderful assistance of Help to try to sort this out, firstly with Grahame Thom and now you. I am very grateful for your assistance. No doubt it is great to see a family connection and because some of the information I felt was incorrect, I will continue my research and check other sources, including if I get the opportunity to come to the Kilmore Historical Society from Central Victoria. No doubt you will decide what’s best for the Society. Thanks.


      2. Thanks Anne,
        We will leave the data there for now; the links have just been deleted. At least you have a name of a fellow researcher (from 17 years ago) so you could always try Googling them and see if they appear on any other genealogy/family history message boards, etc on the web.
