    William Hold and Ann Croxen
    William Hold was christened on the 5th. Nov. 1815 at Little Harrowden in Northamptonshire, England .
    Son of William Hold and Anne. No record of Anne`s birth or their marriage has been found yet. William Hold, Senior, is listed in the 1861 England Census as a Widower. Born abt. 1787, at Wymington, Bedfordshire, England, an Agricultural Labourer, and lodging with John and Mary Larum and their children. One daughter is called Mary Hold Larum so possibly they were related. John was also an Ag. Labourer. Mary Larum was a witness on William and and Ann Croxen`s marriage Certificate.Two Ann Hold`s died one in 1840 and the other in 1846. One of these could have been William`s (senior) wife. His age in the 1861 census was 74 and he died aged 79 in 1866 in Little Harrowden.
    William (Junior) could have had a brother called George born in Little harrowden abt. 1818. In the 1881 Census , he was a Widower, aged 63. His occupation was Agricultural Labourer. Other brothers and sisters have`nt been found yet.

    Anne Croxen was born in 1828 0r 1829. A daughter of Benjamin and Anne Croxen, she is listed in the 1841 England Census.
    Benjamin Croxen was 50 in this Census and born in Burton Latimer which is close to Little Harrowden, and an Ag. Labourer.
    His wife Ann was born abt. 1791 and aged 50. Ann was born in Rothwell, Northamptonshire.
    Their children listed are, Ann 13, Arthur 2, Benjamin 2, Hannah 8, John 21, Mary 15, and William aged 19. Mary and Ann were Lace Makers and William and John Labourers. William and Benjamin migrated to Illinois, U S A. and became farmers. They have alarge Family Tree. They can be traced in the 1880 U S A Census.
    In the 1861 English Census, Benjamin Croxen`s age was 73and Ann`s 68. They died between this Census and the 1871 Census as they are not listed.

    William Hold and Anne Croxen were married in Little Harrowden, on Feb. 25th. 1848, in the Parish Church, according to the rites of the established Church Of England. William is full age and a Widower. His occupation. Labourer and his father William Hold. Anne is underage a Lace Maker and her father Benjamin Croxen. They both signed with their mark.
    William`s first marriage has not been found with certianty yet, except his wife was Anne. William had one son from this marriage called John born in Little Harrowden and christened on 11 Nov. 1843. His parents William and Anne Hold.
    Possibly another son called George was born and Christened in Little Harrowden on Nov.8 th. 1840. A George Hold died here in 1848. His first wife could have been one of the Ann Hold`s whose deaths are mentioned above.

    William Hold and Ann Croxen`s first child was born in Little Harrowden in March 1849. Her birth name was Hannah nd she was christened Anna on the 3rd. of June 1849. She is later called Mary Ann.

    William and Ann migrated to South Australia on the Osceola, a sailing ship of 769 tons. The Osceola sailed from Plymouth, England, on the 26th. Dec. 1850 and arrived at Port Adeliade on the 5th. of April 1851. It would have been a difficult and sad voyage for them. Ann was about 6 months pregnant. Their ages are Wiliam, 35, Ann 21, John 7, and Hannah 2.

    Hannah also called Mary Ann on the shipping lists, died on the voyage on the 22nd.of March 1851. The records of the Osceola state that a daughter was born to Ann Hold during the voyage. Later records show it was a boy, who was named Thomas. Thomas was born very close to the date of Mary Ann`s death.
    No details are known of the time William and Ann spent in South Australia. They were assisted Immigrants.

    A daughter was born in South Australia on the 12th. Aug 1853. She was named Mary Ann. Nothing more is known until 1854. On the 21st. of Sep in that year, their son Thomas died at Avoca in Victoria. His death certificate states he was born At Sea, his age was 3 years and 6 months. He was called a Gold Diggers Child. The cause of his death was from the effects of a cold the length of which was four months. His father, William was a Gold Digger and his mother was called Hannah. William signed with his mark. Thomas was buried in the Avoca cemetery on the 30th. Sep 1854.

    Wiliam and Ann probably left South Australia soon after Mary Ann`s birth to join the rush for gold in Victoria. It is not known as yet wether they came overland or by ship.

    In the same year of Thomas` death, Mary Ann Hold died also. She died on the 19th. Dec 1854. She died of Dysentry, which lasted two weeks. Like Thomas she is called Gold Diggers Child. Willim Hold, Gold Digger signed with his mark. Mary Ann`s mother was listed as Anne. Mary Ann was buried at Avoca the same day. Her age is given s One year and Four months.

    William Hold was born to William and Ann, according to his buriel record in 1856 at Linton near Ballarat. His birth was not regestered.
    Next to be born was Arthur on the 28th. of July 1857 at Green Hills , near Avoca and Ballarat. William was now called a Miner instead of Gold digger

    The next date William and Ann have been found is 1859. Another sad event occurred. Sarah Hold died on the 19th. Dec.1859, aged eight months. The cause of her death was Teething and Convulsions, the duration of which was three weeks. Baby Sarah died at Lamplough, and was buried at Avoca Cemetery on the 21st. Dec. William`s occupation was miner. Sarah birth was unregestered. Her death Certificate states she was born atBack Creek, near Amherst . This was near Avoca. There was a very large Gold rush from Back Creek to Lamplough on the weekend of the 26th- 27th of Nov. 1959

    On the 31st. Dec 1861 a baby girl was born to William and Ann at Inglewood, another Gold rush town. Sadly she only lived for five minutes. There is lot of information on her birth certificate. It states William and Ann were both born at Little Harrowden, Northamptonshire, England. There were two living children, which would be William and Arthur. Six children were dead. Five of these would be Hannah also called Mary Ann, Thomas, Mary Ann, Sarah and this baby who was unnamed. This leaves one more.
    There is no record of John, from Williams first marriage having died. From Williams (Senior) death certificate it seems he was still alive on the 15th Sep 1895 as he is listed as living but age unknown.
    When this little unnamed daughter was born and died William is still a Miner. She was buried on the day of her birth in Old Inglewood Cemetery.

    The next event known is Ann`s death, which was on the 2nd July 1864 at Inglewood. She died of Inflamation of the Womb after confinement which lasted 43 hours. This little baby must have been born dead. Ann`s maiden name was spelt Scrockson instead of Croxen, which is the correct spelling. . She was buried on the 3rd. July in Old Inglewood Cemetery.

    A sad end to a sad life. While in Victoria, Ann would have never had a settled life and never a house to live in. As they followed the gold rushes from one place to another they most likely would have lived in a tent.

    Children had to be tough to survive the living conditions on the Gold Fields.

    In all probability Ann and William would not have heard from their families back in Northamptonshire, as neither of them could write.

    William Hold died on the 15 Sep 1895 at Julluker near Stawell, where he was a Farmer. He could not have found very much gold as records show him and his Sons Arthur And William as not being able to pay their land taxes. William died of Chronic Rheumatism and Chronic Bronchitis. He was buried in the Stawell cemetery on the 17th September. He was 84 years old.
    His first marriage is mentioned , but it is unknown to whom he was married. As stated above John appears to still be live but his age unknown .
    William's death certificate also shows John was from the first marriage. So far no record for John can be found in Victoria or any other State of Australia. He could have returned to England.

    The records of Stawell Cemetery show William was buried in the same grave as his son William (28.1.1921),Selina Bolton, William`s wife (26.3.1899), their sons, William Edward (22.11.1939)and John (15.4.1963).
