William Henry was a mason. His DC gives parents as Collin and Marina

The following is from a letter by Bruce Tippett (Bruce is a descendant of Ernest Tippett above)
My great-grandfather, William Tippett, was born about 1844, and lived in the small village of Indian Queens, between St. Austell and Newquay, Cornwall, England. (He may have had a second name, but I do not know it). He was married in 1866 to Eliza Julian, also of Indian Queens? (I have put a query here because somewhere I am sure that I have a record indicating that Eliza Julian came from another place nearby - this curriculum vitae was written by my brother. - B.T.}. He was a stone-mason, and worked for some time in South Africa, although he did not migrate there - his wife and small children staying in England. However, about 1882, when my grandfather was 14 years old, the whole family migrated to Australia and resided here hereafter, except for the second son William, who returned to Cornwall as a young man, married, and lived in St. Austell until his death in 1963 at the age of 90, Most of the above family were long lived, dying about the mid 80's, the last member, Louisa, dying not so many years ago aged 82

The following comments came from Ailsa Hunt, a granddaughter of Ernst Tippett and Catherine McColl
Ernest Tippett died in Australia, and I am pretty sure that Eliza Tippett remained single all her life.   She is buried with her parents in Melb. General Cemetery.
