I have been given a newspaper article headed "Honoured By Queen Victoria" Famous Croydon Cornetist Dead. I  believe he may be the father of a Henry Jackson, born in Croydon in 1876. Young Henry came to South Australia before 1900.
The newspaper has no name or date. I am trying to get more information about Henry the musician and who his wife may have been.

Surrey / Henry Jackson

Henry Jackson, known as Harry was born in Croydon, Surrey on July 23, 1876. He arrived in South Australia as an 18 year old, and after working on the wharves at Port Pirie, he was elected to Parliament and in 1911, he becomes the youngest ever Speaker of the House of Assembly in South Australia. Can someone locate his parents for me? I have also seen his birth date as 1873.

Stirlingshire / Andrew Lindsay Peter Gardner Millwright and Engineers, Stirling
« on: Sunday 31 March 13 07:43 BST (UK)  »
I have found reference to a notice of impending bankruptcy proceedings against the business of Peter Gardner and Andrew Lindsay, millwrights and engineers of Stirling.  This notice was published in The London Gazette of October 8, 1861.
I am keen to know more about this business, where it was, and what the outcome of this action may have been. I believe that Andrew came to Australia in 1865 and started a foundry "The Carron Ironworks"

I am trying to find out about this lady. The information I have is from a birth registration of a child Catherine at the Lying in Hospital at Ballarat on 10 August 1883. The document I have suggests her maiden name was Aitken and she was 26 years of age at the time of the birth. She was born in Geelong. I hope someone can give me a lead on her. Thankyou in anticipation.

I am looking for information about the parents of Janet McLaren born in 1790, who married Edward Derby in Falkirk in 1816. I believe her parents may be John McLaren and Catherine Struthers, but have no other information about them. Does anyone have them on their tree?

Australia / South Australia Birth Duncan Roderick McKINNON
« on: Tuesday 15 June 10 15:39 BST (UK)  »
Looking for birth record.  From marriage certificate, his father was Donald. He was born c. 1847 and he died at Port Pirie on 23 Dec 1908. He married Mary E. Nilan on 9 June 1881 in Port Pirie. There were 7 children. Mary's father was George Williams. She had been married previously to John Francis Nilan. When he was about 12, he was given a book from the Clare Weslyan Sabbath School in 1859.

There were many McKinnons in the Clare district,with a Donald and Mary McLeod as the head of this group, but their is no obvious link to them.

I have been looking without success and hope someone can help. :(
