AUSTRALIA

Lee Chamberlain Adelaide, Australia This info is from - Index to passenger lists 1847-1886

William Dring b. 1827 Cam. England, Occupation Labourer,and his wife Sarah, arrived at Pt. Adelaide, South Australia June 11th 1850 on the ship FATIMA

John Dring b. abt 1822 Cam. England, Occupation Agric. Labourer, with his wife Alice (nee Cox?) and son William (b.1851) arrived at Pt. Adelaide, South Australia November 2 1851 on the ship OREGON.

( These two families came from Leverington in Cambridgeshire. There is a long letter from John & Alice, published in the Wisbech Advertiser for 15 July 1853 page 4, which details their progress in Australia. The introduction to the letter shows that they all came from Leverington. Checking the parish registers for Leverington CMB 1558-1800 (M to 1812) I find that there was a nest of Drings there with entries from 1682 to 1713 but none thereafter. So, our stray Drings must have moved into the parish after 1800. WOULD ANYONE CARE TO CHECK THE 1851 CENSUS FOR LEVERINGTON to see where John (he didn't emigrate until Nov 1851) was born? Could William & John be strays from the Warboys clan? If John was born in Leverington it will of course be worth checking the post-1800 parish registers but, so far as I know, these have not been transcribed, - although the pre-1837 entries should be in the Cambridgeshire FHS indexes - I haven't checked these tonight. Dr C M Dring) Now linked to Kym Nash family tree coming soon

I was actually searching for Rev. William Dring's entry into South Australia, which I couldnt find - there were 4 entries for the Dring surname, but for some reason I only wrote down the above 2. If anyone wants to know who the other 2 were I will check it out next time I get to my Genie society.

Index to Trinity House registers The Trinity House registers list poor deserving sailors, their widows and orphans. Trinity House was a charity and was situated in London. It seems to cover sailors from many parts of the British Isles. The registers are indexed and available from 1514 to 1854:
Horatio DRING, son of Henry DRING, of Kingston upon Hull, mariner, deceased, and Ann (1831) - this was in the Apprentices Indentures
Henry DRING, aged 67, of Whitby, York (1845) - this was in the pensions section Cathy Day

Victims of the Victoria Hall Calamity

Toward Road, Sunderland runs along the eastern edge of Mowbray Park, perhaps the most outstanding of the city's many impressive public amenities. However, this attractive urban setting hides a terrible secret, for here, at the junction of Toward Road and Laura Street, stood the Victoria Hall which was the scene of what was arguably the country's worst ever tragedy, a tragedy which moved the whole country in a way only matched by the outpourings of grief following the terrible events at Aberfan in 1966 and the recent death of Princess Diana. The tragedy occurred on Saturday, June 16th 1883, during a children's show when gifts were being distributed from the stage. The 1100 or so children in the gallery, determined not to miss the treats, dashed down the spiral staircase to the stalls, but at the foot of the staircase their way was barred by a door which could only open towards them. Tragically the rush of children was such that, before the door could be opened, the leading youngsters were already being pressed against the door by those behind them. The yells of delight soon turned to screams of terror as more and more children found themselves trapped. In the ensuing confusion no less than 183 young children were crushed to death. Truly a tragedy without equal.

Money poured into the town - this is not a modern phenomenon - and some of the donations were used to erect a monument to the dead children in Mowbray Park. This took the form of a life-size white marble statue depicting a grieving mother holding a dead child. Some time after WW2 this monument was moved to its present location in Bishopwearmouth Cemetery.

Victoria Hall remained in use for a further 58 years until the night of April 15th/16th 1941 when, at around 3:00 a.m. during a heavy air-raid on the town, a German parachute-mine scored a direct hit on the northern end of the building and completely demolished it. Few would have missed that sullen reminder of an earlier tragedy, but sadly several other nearby buildings were seriously damaged too, including the Winter Gardens and the Museum and Library in Mowbray Park and the Palatine Hotel at the northern end of Toward Road.

This list of mayors of Nottingham was compiled in 1751 by Charles Deering M.D. in his book Nottinghamia Vetus et Nova, or an Historical Account of the Ancient and present State of the Town of Nottingham. He describes the list up to the year 1598 as being 'imperfect' and that from 1600 forwards as being 'more perfect'

Arthur Stokes I have found it difficult to account for the following DRINGS for whom I inherited Memorial cards but can't find them on the descendants lists. The retention of these meant that my people held them as special but the only certain fact on each is the date of death:
William Dring d. June 28th,1888 in his 66th year presuming a year of birth abt 1826 Interred Warboys Chapel Yard July 2nd 1888
Oliver Dring d. February 7th 1900 in his 91st year presuming a year of birth abt 1809 Interred Warboys Chapel Yard Feb.12th 1900
Elizabeth Dring d.January 1st 1901 aged 83 years presuming a year of birth abt 1816 Place of internment not stated
Jesse Dring d.July 1st 1950 aged 83 years presuming a year of birth abt 1867 Service Zion Chapel, Chatteris Internment in the Parochial Cemetery.
Oliver John William Dring beloved son of Louisa and the late Frederick Dring d.16 April 1962 aged 58 presuming a year of birth abt 1904 Cremated at Cambridge Crematorium April 19th 1962.

From Dr Colin Dring's Woodhurst Branch There are three later entries for Woodhurst:

13 Aug 1893 Bapt   George Leonard DRING son Charles & Rachel, lab

6 Aug 1910   Marr    George William DRING, insurance agent, 27, son of George William, engine driver, & Rosetta SILK

31 Dec 1951 Burial George DRING aged 68

that do not fit. They are probably strays from the Warboys Drings rather than Woodhurst Drings returning to base.
