Victorian 1914 & 1919 electoral lookup please.
« on: Wednesday 18 January 12 06:32 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

Could I possibly ask for a Victorian electoral lookup please.

1914

Name:    Mary Josephine Davidson
Residence: 1914 - city, Melbourne Ports, Victoria

I am hoping that she is at the same address as; 

Name:    Alexander Henderson Davidson
Residence:    1914 - city, Melbourne Ports, Victoria

1919


I can then see in 1919 three possible entries for Mary Josephine DAVIDSON  but am confused to the Senior and Junior references in the latter two

Name:    Mary Josephine Davidson
Residence: 1919 - Melbourne West, Melbourne, Victoria

Name:    Mary Josephine Davidson Senior
Residence: 1919 - city, Melbourne Ports, Victoria

Name:    Mary Josephine Davidson Junior
Residence:    1919 - city, Melbourne Ports, Victoria

Many thanks for any assistance.

Alexander Henderson Davidson is at 143 Montague Street, SM, pastry cook in 1914. At same address is Christian Morrison Davidson, home duties, F.
Mary Josephine Davidson, 6 McCormack St, Port Melbourne, confectioner in 1914.
1919 - Mary Josephine Davidson Snr & Jnr, 6 McCormack St, PM, (Snr =Confect & Jnr = Whitewr). No male Davidson at address. Again, the same, n 1926.

A Mary Josephine Davidson born in Melbourne in 1893 to John Davidson & Mary Dowling.

Mary Josephine is at 585 King St, W Melbourne, home duties in 1919 - no other Davidson there.

In 1936 - Alexander Henderson Davidson, Symmonds St, Bittern, Missionary - also - Marguerita Alyss Davidson, home duties.

Hope that helps,
 :)

Hello Gerry & Jo

Many thanks for all your information, it has certainly helped me a lot.  I will now be able to eliminate the Mary Josephine DAVIDSON living at McCormack Street.

I had been told that Alexander Henderson DAVIDSON's first wife Christian died in 1913 South Melbourne but you have confirmed that she was still alive in 1914 living with him at 143 Montague St, South Melbourne.

The Mary Josephine living at 585 King St, W Melbourne, home duties in 1919 - no other Davidson there was his second wife. The other residents should have been FALLON's her parents.  Alexander Henderson DAVIDSON was in the Canadian forces WW1 and obviously had not returned back to OZ.

The Marguerita Alyss DAVIDSON in 1936 was Alexander Henderson DAVIDSON's third wife  :)

bye and thanks once again  :)

Hi Jo,

Yes I had found Alexander's second wife death notice on Trove, many thanks.

You wouldnt happen to know what month the 1914 and 1919 electoral rolls were held in Victoria. Googling is coming up with a big zilch, no day, month - just year.

This may be Christian's death:
1913 #10617
Christian Mitchell (sic) DAVIDSON,31
Death Place:   South Melbourne, Victoria
Father's Name:   Roxburgh Jno
Mother's Name:   Annabella Morrison

Given her mother's surname I think the 'Mitchell' is an error.

Electoral rolls were more difficult to keep up-to-date in the past and she may just not have been taken off by the time the 1914 roll was published.  The election was held in September but I don't know when the rolls closed.
