Alexander CHRYSTIE - missing daughters
« on: Friday 09 January 09 10:53 GMT (UK) »
I'm totally confused and need some help please. :D

Alexander Chrystie born c1839 England? died age 77 Box Hill Victoria
He married Alethea Blanche TUCK 1903 in Melbourne they had a daughter
Margaret Evelyn  at Box Hill in 1905.
Pretty straight forward so far.
When I read Alexanders will (written in 1912) he mentions his daughter Margaret
but also 2 other daughters - Katherine Selina Hall and Mary Alice Crosthwaite - both presumably married.
My Alexanders parents were William and Catherine Selina Wade, so I'm pretty sure I have the right family.
Kath Selina Chrystie ( born Melb W)m Hy Douglas HALL 1906 Victoria and died 1924 Heathcote but
I can't find births for either daughter or a marriage for Mary Alice.  She is on 1903 Victorian electoral roll with
her sister and father.
Can anyone help please to find the births of both sisters and the
marriage and death of Mary Alice and, if possible, the marriage of their parents.

Sorry this is a bit long but I've tried to include all I know to save wasting
your time.

Thanks for any help

The more information  the better

now  one query he was 64 years when  he remarried and  65 when he  fathered  Margaret Evelyn?


Found  this death in NSW

10947/1955  CROSTHWAITE  MARY ALICE  father CHRYSTIE  mother D'ARCY  at NORTH SYDNEY   


By CatherineSelina Hall's death  she was 48 years old so  gives a birth year of 1878

Unfortunately  my pioneer disc is broken so  cannot check Victoria for you.

Going on  the parents information given for Mary Alice

this appears to be a son


 CHRYSTIE Alex Chas died aged 30 in 1902 at Melbourne E H  reg no 2623
father Chrystie ALexr mother Evelyn Darcy

Thanks Terra.......and troods
Now that's interesting.  I think I found Alexanders family (not him) on 1871 census and a sister
Catherine was born in Jamaica.
