Robert Beveridge Currie
« on: Monday 12 October 09 12:13 BST (UK) »
of Seton House, Galashiels, born 1888 to Andrew L Currie & Mary Squair.
Cannot find Robert's Marriage or Death certificates in Scotland, possibly he dropped the Beveridge name, but don't think that's likely. Likely he may have emigrated. Robert was descended from Curries of Howford, and great nephew to John Lang Currie the Australian Pastoralist and Pioneer, so Australia as well as the US are possibilities
I don't discount WW1, but no obvious connections on CWG site.
Is there anyone researching the Currie family who can assist.

i'll make a start-
if he emigrated then it doesn't look like it was with his family as there is a
death for mary currie(other surname squair) 1912 galashiels selkirk b. c1847

Hi Ev
Thanks for a quick reply.
No, his parents died in Galasheils, and I've found marriages for most of his siblings. His father and Uncle George Hardie Currie(m. another Squair sister) appear to have had interests in the Woolen industry.
At least one of his siblings (Andrew, Agnes & William) died in Edinburgh.  Robert is the only one not found.

Apologies I didn't sign original posting, Philip Rourke is my GGF,  and are my father's forenames

Jim

Hi

I am the granddaughter of Agnes Currie, presumably Robert's sister (certainly all the other familt names you have tie in). The only problem is that in the research that my cousin and I have been doing into the Currie family, the name Robert hasn't appeared! I would be interested in any dates you have for the siblings, and would be happy to exchange any other information we have for this family

Thanks to Jim for the PM, but I can't reply until I have done more postings. This is definitely the same family, but Robert seems to have been left out of the family history as it was passed down to me. There was talk of a "black sheep" who was cut off, but I had assumed it was William (more commonly called Fred). Andrew was married and lived in Gattonside, has 2 daughters, but I think that line of the family has now died out.

Robert B Currie found on 1911 Census age 23, at Seton House, Galashiels, with parents Mary & Andrew and sister Ethel May. However still no further indications of either marriage or death, nor any record on CWGC, war dead site.
Immigration remains a possibility but no obvious records on Ancestry Immigration records that use the Beveridge middle name.

For completion, Robert Beveridge Currie, details in initial post, died in Dunedin N.Z. in 1917 @age of 29. It notes a marriage to Isabella Hart in Edinburgh, and that he was in NZ for 1 yr. only. No other details of wife, informant was the Undertaker. Presume he was  on his own.
