« on: Friday 14 August 15 22:50 BST (UK)  »
I am searching for the parents of Mary Ann Watson (sometimes recorded as just Ann) baptised 29th Sep 1831.  I have a baptism record and the parents are James Watson and Margaret.....his occupation a shoe maker, this took place at Bishop Wearmouth.  I can not find them 1841 census, I have found Mary/Ann in 1851 married and residing in Westgate, Newcastle.  She is married to a Richard Fiddes and i think they were staying with relatives before their departure to Australia. On this census it states she was born in Sunderland.  Would really like to find a potential marriage for a James Watson and Margaret.....

Antrim / Magee/Colville
« on: Thursday 13 March 14 21:09 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking on any information on either of these, my 5x GGmother was born in Belfast as Ann Magee at about 1836, her mother was Ann Colville and father was Thomas Magee...(I think this is the correct spelling) was a cabinet maker.  Ann immigrated to Australia via Plymouth in 1855 on board the Cairngorm, I'd be interested to know if she did this alone or with her family.  Any information on her birth or her parents would be good.  She married Alexander Garrick in Melbourne who was a sailor from Shetland Isles.

Thanks in anticipation.

Shetland / Where to find
« on: Thursday 10 October 13 22:33 BST (UK)  »
I would like to find out more about my Shetlander to when he emigrated to Australia, I have found records for Alexander Kerr Garriock/Garrick as being on various ships but not actually as a seaman but my suspicion is he was.  Can someone steer in the right direction to find out more about my ancestor, I know who he married and who his off-springwere when he arrived in Australia. he was born 11th September 1826 at Sandsting, his mother was Margaret Jamieson and father Scott Garriock. I have not found him on 1841 census but did find his mother and brother.
Any suggestions much appreciated.


Travelling People / Where did Rosina come from?
« on: Tuesday 08 October 13 01:38 BST (UK)  »
This is my first posting, I am looking for Rosina Lee she married Henry Beldam/Beldom in 1919 at Easthampstead, Berkshire and died in Bracknell in 1938 when they were no longer travelling and they owned a property in Skimped Hill Bracknell dealing in scrap metal and horses .  In the 1911 census they are in a van at Blackmore Lane Maidenhead with 3 children....In 1901 census Henry is living with his mother Matilda Beldon ( Telitha Gotilla Matilda Fenner) in the Marlow area with 3 of his siblings and is described as a hawker.
Rosina I believe was born in Reading abt 1882...but can find nothing else about her. Lee being a well known travellers surname I am hoping some one can throw some light on Rosina.

Many thanks in anticipation.
