Hi all,

Looking to trace back a McGeorge line as far as possible. Really hoping to find out under which circumstances my ancestors came to Australia.

Here's what I have so far

Me: Brett Christopher McGeorge (*22.04.1989 in VIC Australia)

My father: David Steuart McGeorge (*15.02.1958 in NSW Australia)

David's father: Colin John Baxter McGeorge (*15.03.1916 in Mosman, NSW)

Colin's father: Percy William James McGeorge (*??.??.?? in ???)

Percy's father: James XXX McGeorge (*??.??.?? in Dumfries, Scotland)

Percy's mother: Ada Ann Baxter (*1861 in VIC Australia)

Any information you might be able to add would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Brett

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

If you go to www.familysearch.org and use the Pedigree Resource File link on the left this will take you through the relevant search screen. Put in full father's name (james McGregor) and mother's name (Ada Baxter) and then search.

Percival William Thomas McGEORGE's birth is given in 1883 in Fitzroy Victoria. Other entries also included for possible siblings to Percy.

These pedigree files are submitted entries but hopefully gives you something to work from to try and verify  :)

The submitter of the Pedigree file also shows here http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=PED&db=:1793136&id=I3085

You could try contacting him on his email which shows on there and see if it is still active  :)

To make headway in Scotland on possible roots for James McGregor, you are going to need to try and find his marriage (circa 1881 from the links showing) or his death certs to establish his age and names of parents back in Scotland.

You could also try posting on the Australian board here on RC for help on resources there www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/board,165.0.html

Hello Brett,
My husband has the McGeorge family in his line, and also the Baxter name.    That part comes from a John McGeorge who married a Jean Baxter in Urr, Kirkcudbright, Scotland way back in the early 1800s.    The McGeorge name was to be found still being used as a middle name as late as the 1890s.    I wonder what the connection is with the Baxters?    My husband's line of descent is through an Elizabeth McGeorge born to John McGeorge and Jean Baxter in Urr, Kirkcudbright in 1807.    It is also interesting that one of Elizabeth's brothers, William McGeorge born 1816 in Urr, went to Liverpool in England and married there, had two children and they then all migrated to NSW around 1853.    William McGeorge died in NSW in 1897, so I wonder if there is a connection?   By the way, we also live in Victoria!

Hi Brett,
I have a little bit on your family. However as recently mentioned you will need to get James and Ada's marriage certificate to hopefully get James's parents.
Do you know when and where he died?

Once you are back to Scotland I should be able more.
If you want to contact me at
(*)   I can send you what I have

cheers
Kay

MCGEORGE family - Thomas McGeorge and Jane Blacklock
« Reply #68 on: Thursday 30 December 10 03:19 GMT (UK) »
Thomas McGeorge married Jane Blacklock.  His father was William McGeorge (born 1796, Hal of Spots, Parish of Urr, Dumfries) and he married Mary Clark.  William's brother married a Clark sister, also. 

Thomas McGeorge was my grandfather's grandfather and immigrated to Fishing River, Missouri sometime around 1880.

Who was William's brother and who was his father?  Does anyone have any informtion on this line?

Many thanks, J

Hi Wendy,
I am researching the Buchanan family and found Clara McGeorge married John Buchanan circa 1899. Clara was a daughter of Walter McGeorge and Annie McDonald (both buried at Pyalong cemetery. Do you have any information on John Buchanan?
