So far I have had no help closing this gap. I did leave this question before with only one reply which didn’t answer my question. I have connected many family members and no help for me.

Your profiles do not indicate the social status of your people or what sort of jobs they may have had. I found a Robert Hovenden who was appointed as a Warden for the Gold-fields of the colony of Victoria 14 September 1861. I don't even know what that means, but perhaps you do.

There was a Mary Hovenden sent to jail for one month for "insulting behavior."

Source: The Age (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia), Tuesday, 13 December 1864, pg. 6, ( : accessed 23 September 2020).

"John Hovenden, son of the owner of Waterview Estate, was cleaning out a well 57 feet deep this afternoon, when the earth some distance overhead fell away, almost completely coving him. When extricated it was found he had sustained two fractures of the jaw, a compound fracture of the left leg, and two fractures of the right leg, besides internal injuries."

J Hovenden advertized for a situation as a baker.

Wow. Lucy you are SOME researcher... :)

I think if you have had 13 children I think we know what she did for a living. A housewife.

Hi Leslie.  

What do you mean by closing the gap?
by Ken Hudson G2G6 Mach 1 (14.2k points)
Closing the gap!

Means as I said I require my great grand mother’s parents. There so far is no trace of her. Of course I already have put the rest in. The gap is her parents for without them I cannot move on.
gotcha now :)
Are you able to sight the original marriage certificate? There is often further details there.

Not a lot of help but you may be interested...

Marcus Evans, fourth son of Mr John Evans, farmer,

Mr Robert Hovenden, farmer, of Tylden." The Age. 14th April 1868. p.4.

There's not a lot of info I could find for you here.

Seems I can only be 'shoulders for someone else to stand on' here.

Located 1 more Hovenden Family based in Hepburn, Victoria. Parents Pierce Hovenden & Mary Rice..

Unnamed female # 14115/1862

Hope there is something anyway that helps your investigations move ahead.
