My ancestor Eleanor Willocks is said to have been born Gibraltar c1796. Parents said to be Robert Willocks and Ann, formerly Collins. Alternate spellings: Ellenor, Wallocks.
I would appreciate any information, especially birth and baptism details in Gibraltar.
Eleanor had a cousin, George Edward Willocks, who in October 1865 when he wrote to Eleanor, was the Royal Engineers Office Keeper at Guernsey, on 14 shillings per week.
Eleanor married John Joseph Pallier 27 Mar 1821 St Anne's, Soho, London. Three daughters were baptised in a single baptism ceremony at St Marys in St Marylebone on 21 Aug 1837. Shortly afterwards, they emigrated to Australia, though John Joseph may have gone earlier. I have not ascertained ships or dates of passage. They lived at Narellan, NSW. Descendants include Lamont, Forbes, Waterworth.
Any further information is welcome
