Hi Folks,

A bit of a long shot as I don't have much to go on  ::)

I'm trying to locate William Steel(e) b 1843 South Uist, Inverness, Scotland

Son of Archibald Steele & Margaret MacRae

William had 6 siblings...
Isabella, Alexander, John (may have died young or emigrated), Marion, Farquhar, Una (dii)

All remained on South Uist but I have added them here in the hope of anyone recognising those family names as the Scots tended to stick with the same names down the line.

Last seen on 1861 South Uist census (age 17) no occupation listed

I have no other info. apart from, that he emigrated to Australia (no area mentioned)

It would be good to find out whether he married, had a family etc.

Any help would be appreciated.

Annie

Thanks Ros,

Sounds like it could be him with father Archibald  ;)

Trying to find him on NSW BDM  ::)

Was surprised when I saw Church of England "portion"........is that just a term for immigrants or was it because he was protestant.............if the latter he must have changed his religion as they were all Catholic in Scotland but he's not the 1st I've come across who converted.

Ros,

Sadly, I don't think it's my William but a strange coincidence born same yr although father's name is Thomas on here so maybe Archibald was a typo  ???

A quick search reveals this.........

William Steele b 1843 d Apr 1922 buried C. of E. Section General Cemetery Orange Road Bathurst.
married Annie C Crowley

daughter May Steele married Robert G Roy (the Mr & Mrs Roy in the obit)

Such a pity  ::)

There are a few trees on ancestry with a William Stuart (or Stewart)  STEELE born 2 dec 1843 in Scotland with parents Archibald STEELE and Margaret MacRAE who have him dying in Western Australia in 1939.  (and that he married Ada GALLAGHER in Kempsey, NSW in 1885)

From W.A. BDM http://www.bdm.dotag.wa.gov.au/_apps/pioneersindex/default.aspx
1939  STEELE William S , no parents given , Perth, reg 1563

I can't find anything to confirm he is the right man.

Here is death notice http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article46415304 and http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article46415304

Thanks Ros,

I can't access Anc trees for some reason................my "prescription"  ;D ran out at the end of last month but I thought the trees were free access & don't know how to access them as my comp has my password on & can't access anything when I go on the site, not even free bmd's for england & wales.

The William Stewart has same date of birth but I have seen previously names from my tree all the way down to my own father but my 2 x g g/father has acquired on different trees a middle name & an extra 8 kids  ;D

Will check it out if I can work out how to defunct my password. Will put a query on technical help site.

Don't be going mad as I know it's a long shot.
Hopefully the anc link will turn out to be correct though once I've confirmed all details  :P

Ros,

I'm not sure this is my man either  ???

I got my anc password deleted so was able to look at the list with that name although no further info. but I'm pretty certain 2 of the sites are 2 of the ones that had the details wrong for my gg g/father.

Presbyterian, again, not impossible but......... ???

Would love to be able to send a message to find out how they know who his parents were  ::)
