Ramsay - Robert, Lucy Jane and Lizzie
« on: Friday 26 January 18 15:30 GMT (UK) »
Robert Ramsay born abt 1849, Lucy Jane born 1858 and their daughter Lizzie born 1885
travelled to Brisbane, Australia on  19 March 1888.

I would appreciate any help in finding them.  I have a thread in Warwickshire,"Rugby Wedding"
I traced the wrong Robert Ramsay,

John Robert RAMSAY, the son does not appear on the QLD Electoral Roll after 1913.

However, this is a possible death for him in NSW

RAMSAY  John Robert 
1071/1941
Father Robert
GRANVILLE

At the time of death this man was the husband of Inez May.
6423/1926
RAMSAY John R
Carberry INEZ M
At RANDWICK

From Ryerson Index.

RAMSAY John Robert
Funeral notice 3 FEB 1941
Late of Chester Hill Sydney Morning Herald


A man of the same name was  divorced in 1922 under "interesting circumstances".

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/169185597
This man came from Brisbane and was 35 years old in 1922.
There is a drawing of him  ;D

All a bit of guesswork really ::)
May be right off track.
Sue

The burial register at Rookwood Catholic Cemetery gives this information about John Robert RAMSAY
 
Aged 52 
Register # 83517 
Service Date   03 Feb 1941   
Burial Type  Burial 
Location-  Section Grave Mortuary 2 Area: 16 Grave : 1465 

This gives him a birth date to tally with the son of Robert and Lucy RAMSAY in QLD.
