descendants of Alice BRUCE (ne Hall) and Walter HALL
« on: Saturday 31 December 11 04:12 GMT (UK) »
I have a photo from c. 1882 of my great great Aunt and Uncle, Alice and Walter Hall, aged about 14 and 11, taken in Ipswich QLD. I would love to find out more about their descendants. Alice married Robert Bruce in 1888  and Walter married Mary Jane Garvey in 1897.

Welcome to Rootschat, Maribel.   :)

Are you just hoping for descendants to get in touch with you, or are you wanting information about possible children of Alice and Walter and their partners?

Maribel,
We cannot post on here about living people, but posting more information, such as the parents of Alice and Walter, and about deceased descendants can sometimes bring contact on here from living descendants. Once you've made 3 posts, you can then use the personal messaging system to exchange information with anyone who should happen on this thread by googling, and then join up and post on it.

For example, I see that Alice and Robert BRUCE had a son George in 1890, and a son Wallace Robert Emanuel in 1893.

Thanks for explaining Dee. I have info also about Walter's children, and (I think) on other siblings of Alice and Walter. Their father was William Lawson Hall, born in Portsmouth UK and died in Warialda, NSW, in 1876 before family moved to Queensland. I would also be interested if anyone knows any more about him.

Thanks, Maribel

Have you seen these references on Trove newspapers?

Hopefully a present day descendant will pick up something when googling and find your thread.

Good luck....

Hi Dee, thank you so much for that lead to notices in Sydney Morning Herald. I had not seen them before and one mentions Hall's Topwater as a place - I was beginning to think it did not exist. The back of the photo gives this address, written by one of the English relations.  I am delighted.

thank you again

Mariel

Glad to have been of help, Mariel.

I just put Halls Top Water into the Trove Newspapers advanced search engine, and found this interesting article. It's not about your family but I thought you may like to see it as it gives a little information about where Hall's Top Water was.
