Surname Saturday – House

The ancestor in my tree with this surname is Louisa House.

The ancestral line is:

1 My ex-husband

2 Murray Irwin Willis (1931-1964)
3 Shirley Patricia Casey (1935-2013)

6 Albert George Casey (1901-1965)
7 Lilah Adela Mulder (1903-1987)

14 Patrick John Theodore Mulder (1861-1940)
15 Elizabeth Theisinger (1865-1918)

28 Jacob Thomas Alexander Mulder (1818-1870)
29 Louisa House (1834-1878)

Louisa was born about 1834 in Stepney, London, England (according to her youngest son Patrick John Theodore Mulder’s birth certificate).

This certificate also shows Louisa married Thomas Mulder in October 1850 in Stepney, however, there is no marriage record for them. Thomas appears to have already been married, to Maria Clarkson, and that he never married Louisa.

Thomas and Louisa had 6 children:

  • Louisa Mulder (1852-1925)
  • Mary Ann Mulder (1855-1864)
  • Georgina Mulder (1856-1895)
  • Thomas Alexander Mulder (1857-1922)
  • Margaret Mulder (1859-1859)
  • Patrick John Theodore Mulder (1861-1940

Louisa died 28 December 1878 at Fitzroy in the colony of Victoria. Unfortunately, her death certificate doesn’t provide any details about her parents.

Without knowing her parents’ names, or exactly where she was born, I have been unable to determine which, if any, of the baptism entries around this time around London is for this Louisa, so I haven’t been go any further back on this line.
