Australia / Guinney or Guirney or Guinnery
« on: Thursday 05 March 15 08:43 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all, I have bdm index stating Sinnon Guinney married Elizabeth Burns in Paddington in 1893.  Children: 1894 Elizabeth M Guinnery. 1896 Florence Guinney. 1898 Catherine F Guinney.  1902 Vera A Guinney. 1910 anor daughter Kathleen died.  Sinnon is spelt Simon for most of those births in Waverley & Balmain.  22/2/1949 Elizabeth Mary Guirney died and SMH notice states "relict of late Sinon J Guirney". When Vera married in 1931 the newspaper referred only to "Mrs E Guirney".   My ? is where did Sinnon/Sinon/Simon come from and die?  Any ideas would be appreciated.  I have checked & no war record, unless strange surname spelling.   Thank you.

So appreciate the great assistance.  I am wondering if Walter's father was may be a soldier (and had an affair with Christian) if there is no mention of Bake in Scotland.  I will search UK freebdm a bit further.  Walter called a daughter Christina, and another Augusta, which tie in with family names.   Thank you all. :)

Thank you so much Ev.  Hadn't occurred to me to check English bdm.  Very interesting.

Would someone be able to tell me anything about Walter Hugh Bake born Scotland c.1858.  The 1871 census lists Walter Bake aged 13 in Old Machar district.  I believe his parents were Walter Hugh and Christina, and he married Mary Hannah (?) with a son (Francis Walter Henry) an infant in 1884 when they arrived in Australia.  Thank you :)

Wiggy, you raised the ? and I had to look!  In the marr permission, the A in Anderson is formed differently to the A in the ships name?  Then again the S in Smith and the S in Steel are different.   She was definitely Irish and not a convict, so I must be content with that. :)

I tried to be clever and looked for a Steel(e) convict attached to the Archem. but no luck.  So her parentage will have to remain a mystery, as her 1902 death index doesn't list the parents names either,   I am more than happy with results - Saturday midday I first discovered the names of Eleanor and Edward - by Sunday night I had a convict with plenty of info on State Archives, and some other details.  Thanks to everyone.  :)

Thank you all again for the interest.  MAGM did you pop the reference to a William Steel (from the 1903 record) in as a suggestion for me to chase down?  All I know of Eleanor's origins (FROM another researcer) is she was born in 1820, Dublin.  Migrated in 1826 (aged 6) - aboard Archimedes.  No proof of this, except her obituary says she was 6 when she arrived in Aust. I couldn't find a passenger list from State archives for Archimedes.

Neil, there are a few more BDM entries under the name of "Ellen" and as her 1902 Obituary from Trove says she left a large family of sons and daughters (no names sadly), I suspect that is her.  The earliest entry under Ellen was in 1847 - Catharine (I am researching Catherine, daughter of Eleanor Steele and Edward Smith, hence this query).  Armed with the earlier info today, I have been to State Archives to confirm Edward was a convict, Scottish Nat Archives to see he was sentenced in Perth, and Parmelia journey.  Such a wealth of info already I am very grateful for the Rootschat help you people give. :)
