Australia / Mary Ann Dutton
« on: Thursday 06 April 17 09:49 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find  a possible Victorian marriage of Mary Ann Johnson. She was born Mary Ann Williams in Devon, England around 1809, came to Tasmania as a convict, where she married James Johnson in Launceston 20 August 1838. They had 3 children, Eliza, Frederick and Sarah. James died in 1846 in Launceston, all of the children are buried in Victoria including Mary Ann. She is buried in Ballarat with her son Frederick, his wife and two of their children, but her name is Mary Ann Dutton, died 24 January 1882. I am trying to locate her husbands name and where they may have been married

Australia / Amos Thomas Barwick
« on: Friday 24 February 17 12:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hoping for some help on details for family of Amos Thomas Barwick ( junior ), born 22 May 1900, Tasmania, I have him marrying Annie Irene Smith ( no idea of birth date ), November 1921, divorced in 1940, Lived in Devonport and Queenstown. Have found a cemetery index for Amos, lists Myrtle as spouse and (four) children as (*), not sure who the mother of the children is as I can't find births for the children. Also there is a Alice Norma Barwick, wife of Amos Thomas Barwick , Pillinger St, Queenstown, who died 12 September 1951 at Royal Hobart Hospital. Would appreciate any help making sense of this.
Cheers Craig

Perthshire / Robertson family in Logierait
« on: Friday 30 December 16 05:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I am trying to locate children and siblings for Alexander Robertson. I have obtained a marriage register for him the contents as follows.
Alexander Robertson age 41, married Catherine McLaurin age 23 , at Clifton St, Glasgow on 15th of January 1862. His usual place of residence is Logierait and Catherine's is Ardchattan.
Alexander's parents are Donald Robertson and Catharine Robertson ( it appears her maiden name was Robertson also ). The brides parents are Neil McLauren and Ann? Sinclair. I found Donald and Catherine in an 1871 census, ( going by the ages and living in Rannoch ), with a daughter Ann aged 34 who it appears had some form of mental disability, Lunatic is listed. An earlier census also lists a Duncan , born around 1833 . As far as I can tell I have the correct family but I am having problems locating other births. I have found other census returns but things don't line up. As far as I can tell Alexander and Catherine had 8 children, Catherine b. 1862,  Neil b. 1864, Donald b. 1866, Ann b. 1868, Susan b. 1870, Alexander b. 1872, Mary b. 1873 and James C born around 1879.
If some one can confirm if I am on the right track I would appreciate it, starting to do my head, there are so many Robertsons in the same area.

I am trying to find the family of my wife's grandmother, I have a copy of her death certificate which states her first names as Ailsa Janet Millar ( born Robertson ). She was born 3 July 1910, Delmas, Tvl. and died 5 August 1969, H.F. Verwoerd Hospital. She married Alfred Thomas Bettington in Pretoria, 4 October 1936. Father and mother are only listed as deceased. I don't know anything of possible siblings, I only hope someone with knowledge of the family might read this post and reply

Herefordshire / John Bittington
« on: Saturday 18 July 15 03:59 BST (UK)  »
Hi guys, I am trying to find the birth place of  John Bittington(Bettington), I have found a marriage record in Bosbury on the 21st of March 1776 for him and Susannah Jones, it appears her family was from Bosbury but there are no earlier records of Bittington's in the area, I assume he was born in a neighbouring parish. I think Susannah was baptised 5/10/1748, making another assumption he would have been a similar age, anyone able to assist
