Charles KEAR (General)

by jean cavanagh @, Sydney nsw Australia, Thursday, January 05, 2012, 02:11 (3181 days ago) @ toadhall22

I am the great grandaughter of Charles Kear and Jean Shergold who were married in Mudgee, NSW Australia in 1861. I too am looking for more information on Charles who died in 1880 in Mudgee. His death certificate says that his name was Jung and that he was 65. I have a good deal of information about his family and my grandmther, Charles's daughter Hannah Vashti.

My mother's recollection is that her mother in law, Hannah Vashti Kear( m Arthur Phillips)told her that her father could speak "chinese and scotch"

So, can we presume that Charles Kear was the son of a scottish man who migrated or sailed to Amoy, China and who later met and married a chinese woman?

there are a number of people trying to trace the background of Charles but with no success.

KEAR: Charles Kear married Jean SHERGOLD in Mudgee in 1861. They had
children Hugh, Jacob, Frederick, Ruth, Rebecca, Vashti, Eva. I am
intrigued by the Chinese background of Charles (UNG) who I am told was
born in Amoi, China. That information was from Carol Kear but I have
lost cintact with her. I was told Murray Kear may have some old
photographs which I would love to copy but I don't know how to contact
him. Seeking any information about Charles or this family.
