Family History Research
This page relates to a single family descended from two Catchloves who emigrated to Australia from Britain and settled in the Adelaide region, Edward CATCHLOVE b.1779, who sailed on the Tam O’Shanter in 1836 and his son Henry CATCHLOVE b.1806, who sailed on the Hooghly in 1839.  The bulk of the information on this page has been researched by Graham R. CATCHLOVE, a descendant of Edward and Henry.  Additions in olive green were researched by Diane, a descendent of Edward Charles Lockyer CATCHLOVE.  If anyone wishes to contact Graham or Diane, please email me using the link below and I will pass a message on.  Additions in pink are speculative.     Many thanks for allowing me to publish your research, Graham & Diane.

On this page you will find a family tree with a gallery of photographs below.

If you would like photos of your own Catchlove ancestors to be published on this website
(not living family members for reasons of privacy) please email them to
enquiries@catchlove-research.org with a clear indication of where they fit in the trees.

Alternatively, if you have a photo of a Catchlove ancestor and you don’t know who it is, I’d be happy to publish it in the hope that someone else will recognise them.
If anyone has any further information which may help confirm which families in Britain Edward CATCHLOVE and his son Henry CATCHLOVE belonged to, we would be very grateful if you would contact us at
Francis CATCHLOVE b.1750.

Diane, a descendant of
Edward Catchlove LOCKYER, and
Glenys, a descendant of Edward Napoleon
Buonaparte CATCHLOVE, have both speculated that Edward CATCHLOVE is the brother of George, who married in Chichester in 1794, and is Edward, son of Francis CATCHLOVE from Family 2 in My Catchlove Family Trees.
The dates fit, but why do Australian sources say he was born in Middlesex?  Did he move to London and remarry?
What happened to his first wife Sarah ?
Does anyone have any further information?

These photographs of the Adelaide Catchloves and their memorials were kindly provided by five of their many descendants: Glenys AIRD, Diane O’BRIEN and Jeff, Graham  & Roger CATCHLOVE.

Diane tells us that a picture of the Tam O’Shanter and a record of its landing can be seen on the History South Australia website, which also gives a succinct account of the early colonisation of South Australia and conditions of travel.

Thank you, everyone.

Henry CATCHLOVE (1806-1867), who sailed to Victoria on the Hooghly in 1839 with his 8 year old son George Henry CATCHLOVE after the death of his wife Ann in St Marylebone in 1833.
Henry’s  parents Edward & Harriet, their other son Charles and daughters Jane and Maria had sailed on the Tam O’Shanter three years previously in 1836.  Sadly, Harriet died on the voyage and Maria changed her name to Harriet in honour of her mother.
Henry, with a small child to care for, remarried when he arrived in Australia; he and his new wife Emma FILMER had twelve children.

Eddie HANN tells us that Walter Evered CATCHLOVE was born on 24 Feb 1907 in North Adelaide and died on 12 April 1997 in Glen Osmond, Adelaide.   Eddie writes, “Walter Evered was Wally Catchlove who batted a few times for South Australia in 1931/32 and 1933/34 seasons and made 65 not out against the infamous 'body-line' MCC team on 8 Nov 1932. This included 'legends' of their day, Herbert Sutcliffe, Wally Hammond, Douglas Jardine, Harold Larwood, Les Ames, the Nawab of Pataudi and ironically Maurice Leyland.”  

Lucinda CATCHLOVE has discovered a newspaper article referring to the announcement of Walter Evered CATCHLOVE’s engagement to Miss Dorothy BERENICE, which states that he is the son of Mr G.G. CATCHLOVE of Glenelg.  But the information provided by Diane O’BRIEN IRONS, which allowed us to locate Wally in the tree,  indicates that this is clearly a misprint and should read Mr G.E. CATCHLOVE.

On her Rootsweb page, Diane Cummings lists Hooghly passengers  in which she states that  Henry CATCHLOVE’s wife Emma FILMER also sailed on the Hooghly with other Filmer passengers likely to have been her family.  As a widower with a young child to care for it made sense for Henry to marry one of his fellow passengers shortly after arriving.
The Stanley Family website has a page detailing their Catchlove branch, which appears to begin with Henry CATCHLOVE who sailed on the Hooghly.  This website states that Henry’s son George was baptised in Chelsea in 1839 just prior to sailing for Australia.  This is one of the baptisms recorded on our London & Middlesex Catchloves page for which we have no definite connection.  The Stanley Family website does not provide evidence that this is the same George, although it is likely that it is.
Webshots members’ photos include one posted by a Tuckwelldc of Edward CATCHLOVE’s grave.  Tuckwelldc also posted a photo of Henry CATCHLOVE’s grave.  He is buried with his brother Charles and son William Harold.
Passenger Ships arriving in South Australia details information about the arrival of the Tam O’Shanter, including a passenger list.
The City of Adelaide, A Thematic History, published by Adelaide City Council, includes a reference to Edward CATCHLOVE & Sons, builders, moving premises in 1838.  The reference can be found on page 64.
An article published in The Advertiser (Adelaide) in 1910 refers to the presentation to public library of a set of photographs showing old colonists, the list of those named includes CATCHLOVE, G.H. who arrived on the Hooghly in June 1839.
The South Australian Register of 26 November 1863 carries an announcement of the death of Henry & Emma’s son Charles Henry of scarletina  at the age of five.
The South Australian Register of 27 July 1886 carried a retrospective article about the first pioneer ships that includes the Tam O’Shanter of 1836.  Interestingly, it names only three of the passengers, one of which is a “Mr. Catchlove”.  It is likely that this refers to Charles CATCHLOVE, who arrived on the Tam O’Shanter with his father Edward, as he has been credited with the foundation of the villages of Kensington and Norwood in Geoffrey H. Manning’s book  A Colonial Experience:
The South Australian Register of 12 March 1861 carried a list of publicans who had applied to have their licences renewed, one of whom was Henry CATCHLOVE of the Tavistock Hotel, Rundle Street (Adelaide).
The South Australian Register of 9 July 1861 published two letters to the editor concerning an insurance claim by a Mr. CATCHLOVE following a fire.
The Adelaide Register of 30 July 1864 reported the accidental death of Henry & Emma’s daughter Amelia Ada who was run down by a cart at the age of five.  At this time Henry was landlord of the Ship Inn.
The South Australian Register of 15 September 1868 lists the transfers of licences for publicans, which include Edward Catchlove LOCKYER, Henry HAUSSEN & George Henry CATCHLOVE (landlords of Somerset Hotel, Flinders Street, Adelaide) and for storekeepers, including H.H. HAUSSEN & G.H. CATCHLOVE.
Edward Napoleon Buonaparte CATCHLOVE (1842-1920) has been well-documented, perhaps partly due to his unusual name as much as for his exploits as a trooper.  Flinders Ranges Research has a web page about Edward N B CATCHLOVE and his close kin.
Maud CATCHLOVE b.1887, daughter of Francis Henry, died during a tooth extraction when a molar fell into her windpipe.  The coroner’s report appeared on page 4 and page 7 of the Adelaide Advertiser on 2nd August 1898 .

This picture taken at Winneckes Depot (gold mining settlement east of Alice Springs 1903) shows Edward Hurtle CATCHLOVE, his brother Ernest William CATCHLOVE and their father, Mounted Constable Edward Napoleon Buonaparte CATCHLOVE at far right.  Far left is an indigenous "tracker" employed by the police force to assist in tracking miscreants.  Centre of picture is the temporary "lockup" complete with neck-irons.   ENBC noted that until he was provided with a proper closed lockup this was the only way to restrain those arrested (usually for drunkenness.)  Edward and Will rode their pushbikes (shown) for a large part of the distance between Adelaide and Alice Springs!

This is a picture of the lockup referred to in ENBC's diary of his time in Darwin in 1870.  This was built by him and the other troopers as part of their daily duties.

son of Edward Napoleon Buonaparte CATCHLOVE.

Jeff tells us:  “As a matter of interest, the Edyvean family came from Cornwall in the 19th century to South Australia’s ‘Little Cornwall’ in the Kadina, Moonta and Wallaroo triangle about 150km (90 miles) north of Adelaide. They were part of a massive exodus of Cornish and Welsh miners to the colonies to work in newly found lodes of copper and other precious metals.”
The memorial plaque for Donald Edward CATCHLOVE (1916-1984) and his wife Lillian Elizabeth (1915-2004), who were both cremated at Centennial Park Cemetery, Panorama, SA.
Donald Edward was the son of Edward Hurtle CATCHLOVE and grandson of Edward Napoleon Buonoparte.  He was known as Ross, after his maternal uncle Roswald EDYVEAN, who was killed in France in WWI, a little over a week before Donald Edward was born.

Attached is a photo I recently obtained believed to be of Rosa CATCHLOVE, in Adelaide, married at that time to her second husband, Frederick Estcourt BUCKNALL (m. 1874).  Her first husband Henry Hermann HAUSSEN had died in 1870.  After the death of Frederick BUCKNALL in 1896, she married for a 3rd time to John Huxable Wesley PERRYMAN, and she died in 1899 in Mt. Magnet Western Australia.

This photograph of the Unicorn Brewery in Burra, owned by Edward Charles Catchlove LOCKYER (b.1839), was sent to me by both Roger CATCHLOVE & Diane O’BRIEN, a descendant of Edward.   Edward was the son of Maria CATCHLOVE (1816-1882) and Thomas Arthur LOCKYER.  Maria sailed on the Tam O’Shanter as a young woman of twenty in 1836, with her parents Edward & Harriet.  Maria took her mother’s name of Harriet after her death on board.

Roger tells us that Burra was a copper mining community north of Adelaide; the mine has since been burned down, although the cellars still survive.  He thinks this photograph dates to the mid 1870s.  Edward is the tall gentleman standing a little apart on the left.
