Saffon, Quirk, Clarke etc

The Society currently has an enquiry about the descendents of Ellen Ford, through her marriage to William Saffon (the grave at Blanket Hill, north of Glenmaggie) and Edward Penders (or possibly Pendergast) at Tarraville.

There were four children - a son killed young on the Walhalla Road, possibly without issue, and three girls. They married into the Quirk, Clarke and Hogan / Lyon families, who all lived in Maffra. One family in the next generation of Quirks was the Shingles family.

If you wish to share information, please feel free to contact the Society.
