From Joan Pawloski:
"Frederick Fisher was accused of (forging or something like that) anyway, he was sent to Australia as a convict. He was sent in 1815 on a convict ship called the "Atlas". Because he was a learned man (could read & write fluently) he worked off his crime in Australia & bought a few farms, land, was also starting up some paper making business etc. The ex-con who was Fred's partner in the papermaking business killed him.

I don't know much (in fact I don't really know anything) about Samuel & Elizabeth, other than Samuel was a bookseller in Bethnal Green. I think Elizabeth's maiden name was Woonough, but I can't find anything on her. With a last name like Woonough you would think info about her would stick out a mile long.

I have been told that the Fisher's go way back into Elizabethan times, & one of them ( I think his name was John or Thomas Fisher) had something to do with publishing a Shakespear play called A Mid Summer's Night Dream), but don't quote me on that, as I am probably dreaming. But I think that is how the story goes...

I just basicaly learned these kinds of things about my Fisher ancestors. I cannot prove any of it other than the story of Fred the Ghost. Samuel & Elizabeth (Woonough) Fisher had a son named Samuel, & the Fisher family sent Samuel Jr to Australia to try to find what was ritefully to be inherited for them. I had found the birth/baptism for Samuel Jr, (Samuel & Edwin were baptised together on the same day) but then I hit a dead end & I could never find anything more on him. I guess because when he went to Australia he never came back to England. So now all these years of not being able to find him, now makes sence. But apparently the Fishers have been booksellers & drapers for many generations back. 
FISHER, Frederick George James (I10087)

6 "Born out of wedlock." WILLIS, Ernest Edwin Stock (I11331)
 
7 "He was my grandfather, born Old Brompton, (Gillingham) 1870, died 1949 Chatham. He served in the navy for 25 years as an engine room artificer. Mediterranean, Ascension Island, China were areas where he spent much time; also periods back home at HMS Pembroke, Chatham. A whizz at maths which he unsuccessfully tried to pass on to me! Never wore an overcoat - did exercises in front of an open window every morning - tried to toughen me up as a boy (failed!) with boxing. I did take to the long country walks he took me on, though. He played football 2 or 3 times in the mid-1890s for an amateur club that later became Gillingham FC - scored several goals; also played cricket for his ship on Ascension. A larger than life character who had a big influence on me as a boy after he sold up and moved in with us while my father was at the war." Brian Jenner JENNER, William (I9061)
 
8 "My Grandmother died when I was 7 so I do not remember her. When my father died in 1929 my mother and I had nowhere to go as we could not go to Ireland where my mother was born. We had no future there because she had married a British soldier. My uncle Bert and his wife took us in for a few months and my grandmother was also living with them in Maison Dieu Road. My mother sometimes spoke of her mother in law and it is difficult to find words that exactly describe her. She was very proud, rather stately and a bit regal. She had very definite opinions and always gave great thought before she spoke. Although she was not a Dennis she was very proud of the name. I always think kindly of her because although it was only 2 years after my father's death that she died she remembered to give me my father?s share in her will. Unfortunately, I could not inherit it until I was 21 and in the meantime the firm of solicitors had badly invested the money so that the value had actually decreased by the time I got it. Nevertheless it was a kind thought." [Cyril Dennis] JONES, Amy (I9488)

10 'Whereas Sarah West, wife of John West of the parish of Barham near Canterbury, has separated from her said husband Six Months since by Agreement, and she having run him in Debt to several Persons, since the said separation; this is to give Notice, that her husband will not Pay any Debt or Debts which have been or shall be contracted by Sarah West, his said wife.
Witness, John West.'

12 * The Bishops Transcripts show a William Brook married Julian Lancey 31/8/1689, with the father of William given as Charles & the father of Julian given as John = 2 children also given as Jane (ch. 24/8/1690 & Julian ch. 21/2/1696).

The dates of wedding & births don't correspond, but all various documents can be confusing. Although Julian is a male name today, the name apparently was a female name in the Bishop's Transcipts for this era. 
BROOK, Willam (I3612)
 
13 *Bishops Transcripts for various births of their children show that Charles worked as a shoemaker.

The 1st child Mary may have had an illegitimate child named Frederick Brooks (c.1826), & she later married Andrew Thorne in Combe Martin 
BROOKS, Charles (I3213)
