I am an indirect descendant of Benjamin Saunders Pavy, (one of my great grandmothers was Sarah Pavy - the only daughter of Benjamin Saunders Pavy) who also had 7 sons.
I have searched out the descendants for a couple of generations, and can confirm that William Henry Pavy b.25/9/1858 Milang married Mary Evelyn Bowman in Ardrossan in 1881. She died 30/7/1947 Ardrossan. They had 8 children that I have traced.
Benjamin Saunders Pavy the 2nd born 9/10/1861 Milang married Emma Jane Bowman Ardrossan 1888. She died June 1899. I have traced 5 children.
Both these Pavy brothers of the Bowman girls were sons of Benjamin Saunders Pavy, who migrated to Australia and settled in Milang with his 8 children in 1850. Have much more
info. if you require it.
Info. on Bowmans could possibly be followed up with
