Kessell, Stephen (1863-1941)

Family

Stephen was born in late 1863 at Redruth, Cornwall, to parents Stephen and Elizabeth.

He married Annie J. Lackey (1863-1955) in 1894 at Glebe, New South Wales. I have identified three children in online records.

  • Stephen Lackey (1897-1979) – a forest conservator (1935)
  • John Samuel (1899-1963) – emigrated to USA in 1933; a doctor (1940); died at Fresno, California, USA
  • Enid Emily (b1901) – a nurse (1930)

Stephen died on 15 July 1941 at Chatswood, New South Wales, Australia.
