Parents of Isabella Robertson
« on: Thursday 20 June 19 03:36 BST (UK) »
Hi, I am wondering if anyone can help me if I have the correct parents for Isabella Robertson?

I have the birth certificate for John Allen Pinchen, listed parents were John Thomas and Isabella, her father was stated as Peter Robertson, no mother listed.

I know that she married John Thomas Pinchen 1884 in Melbourne Vic.
Isabella died age 38 in 1902, Footscray, Father Peter Robertson,  Mother Hannah Moylan.
I have found a child Edith Isabella born 1884 to John Thomas and Isabella Pinchen.

I cannot find any information on Peter Robertson or Hannah Moylan, I don't know if or where they were married?
Hoping for some information,  thanking you

Where is her father named?  Is it on her marriage cert?  Where was she born and how old did she say she was when she married?

Peter ROBERTSON and Ann MOLAN had a son Alexander in 1862 so if Isabella's birth wasn't registered you should get his cert instead to find information about the parents.  Alexander died in 1863, mother Anna MOYLAN.

Doesn't necessarily help with finding Isabella's parents, however there are also these births in Victoria to John Thomas PINCHEN and Isabella ROBERTSON:

1884  Isabella Edith
1888  John Allan
1891  Percival
1895  Lillian

On the birth cert of John Allen Pinchen who was born 1888.
Peter Robertson was the informant on the birth of John Allen Pinchen, lists him as the Grandfather Gray St Footscray.  Also lists Isabella Pinchen as the mother, maiden name, Robertson, and she was aged 25 at the birth of John Allen.
I  got the marriage details for John Thomas Pinchen and Isabella Robertson from the BDM's Victoria
married 1884,  also the death in 1902 aged 38.

Isabella is interred at the same location at Footscray Cemetery as Peter ROBERTSON and adjacent to John PINCHER [sic]

No mention of her mother Hannah Moylan? I wonder?  Do we know where Peter Robertson came from?
