Thats great Jenn!! ty very much!! where do we find these birth records?

And this search has bought up another surprise!... I know now that Dr John had a daughter Laura Constance Heeley, who married Sir Denison Samuel King Miller KCMG... first governor of the commonwealth bank of Australia!!

Surely, if he was such a prominent person, (Ive got a pic of him off the net)... i should be able to find a pic of his wife? Wouldnt she then be Lady Laura Constance Miller?

Anyhows... ty Jenn :) ty everybody:)

You asked about the marriage records in Victoria.  They are online, free to search but pay to view
http://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/index-search?action=getHistIdxSearchCriteria

There are also the following indexes -

https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/family-history-shop   
VicHeritage Products   
DVD and CD-ROM Historical Indexes

These sets of CD-ROM indexes cover records of births (to 1901), deaths (to 1985) and marriages (to 1942) from the commencement of civil registrations in Victoria on 1 July 1853. The Victorian Pioneers Index also includes early church records of baptisms, burials and marriages back to 1836.



Cheers

I'm new to this as I only discovered it a few minutes ago. Yes, Dr. Heeley's daughter was the second wife of Sir DSK Miller and my great grandmother. She died on the family property called Colstoun in Gunnedah, NSW, Australia. My father remembers her very well.

I actually thought that Heeley was an Irish surname as the family was Catholic while Denison Miller was Anglican.

Unfortunately the family property was sold only a couple of years ago and many of the personal historical items such as diaries, paintings, photos went "missing".

Thank you to all the wonderful people who do spend time researching for dates and information and thereby providing what would otherwise be lost history!.

Hmmm - lots of mentions on the NLA digitised newspaper site.

He was committed for trial for manslaughter after a patient died from taking medicine with carbolic acid and prussic acid prescribed by him  :o  Later the commital was quashed.  Lots of other mentions also.

(I searched using Dr Heeley )

PS The wife of a "Sir" is called by Lady plus the surname - in this case, Lady Miller.  You only use the Christian names in the title if you are the daughter of a Duke or earl.  For example: Diana, Princess of Wales was known as Lady Diana Spencer before her marriage because her father was an Earl.  The correct title for, say, wife of Sir Donald Bradman would be lady Bradman.

With regard to Denison Miller there are lots of mention of him on the National Libray search site, including a photo of him and his wife on the terrace of their home.

(Haven't we looked for these people before?)

None of which helps us find his emigration which is what you are after though.   :(  The death certificate may give the number of years in "the colony".

Thank you everyone... Im going to have to have a re-look over this lol... for its been a while since Ive done this side, and I cant help thinking the Dr, was Dr Joseph Theophilus Heeley... not John? lol? (I actualy think I have both a John Theophilus and a Joseph Theophilus, but the Joseph was the Dr from Young)
