Aberdeenshire Completed Lookups / surname Bake
« on: Thursday 30 October 14 20:36 GMT (UK)  »
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. :)

Very interesting Wiggy.  Plenty of food for thought there.  Looks like no housework this morning! :)

Has anyone researched Edward (Joseph) Smith and Eleanor (May) Smith (nee Steele)?  Eleanor was Irish Catholic, and her obituary was published on 12/4/1902.   Edward died 1888 and apparently their gravestones may still be visible.  They had a large family born mainly around Picton.   Thank you.

Goodness gracious.  A close knit family.  Thank you for continuing the line of inquiry.  Grateful to say the least!  :)
