Hi,  I have been searching all day after downloading the certificates yesterday, but cannot find a marriage for Peter Robertson.
Here is what I have found, I purchased 3 certificates,  birth Alexander Robertson, Death Alex Robertson, and death of Isabella Pinchen.

I am fairly confident that the parents of Alex and Isabella are the same.

Peter Robertson was 23 when Alex was born in Melbourne 1862,  Peter Robertson was born in Stirlingshire Scotland and was a coach painter, he is listed as a painter on all three certs. also that Peter and Hannah were married in 1861, Melbourne.

Ann Moylan/Anna Moylan/Hannah Moylan, I guess is the same person,  she was born in County Clare Ireland, and was aged 22 at the time of Alex birth in 1862.

Edith Pinchen was the informant on Isabella's d.c.

Can anyone help, re immigration to Australia for Peter and Hannah? and a marriage for them.  I am at a complete loss in trying to find this information.

Thank you for the info, which got me so far.

Hello everyone,  My head is just starting to go into a spin.
I have just downloaded another cert. for the death of Hannah Robertson.
States she was 52y/o at her death in 1883 = born 1831.
She was born in Cork, Ireland, been in Vic. 25years  =  arrived here in 1858.
Husband is Peter Robertson, her age at marriage 30y/o  = marriage date 1861.
Only one child listed, Isabella age 20 y/o  = Isabella born 1863.
All this ties in with passenger list for the Admiral Boxer, Hannah Moylan, born abt 1830, arrived Geelong 1857, Irish, and a parish reg. Hannah Moylan, born, abt 1832, Cork.

So I am so totally lost re all the other certs. there seems to be two of everyone? except Alexander Robertson b.c. states Ann Moylan born County Clare, age 22 =  she was born 1840?

I just don't know where to go from here.

Would appreciate any help, thanking you.

It is difficult to make best use of the information that you giving here. It would be useful to have a good account of the BDM information.

You have several BDM certificates, Victoria.

For each of the......, can you please list all of the information.

If you have relevant comments, can you please show them separately from the information on the certificate....at the end.

Can you also describe each certificate  as......typed transcription...or image of handwritten document.

I think you are correct that is my Peter Robertson, lots of matches to the Pinchens
I can't find where or when or how he arrived here?
