John William would have been about 10 at the time of the mutiny if this is the correct peron.

John William was born 1842. Indian Mutiny was 1857.  So 15. Not 10.
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

Julie Grace Matilda Gibson died on 28/09/1881, 6 months after John William Walter was born. Could Grace McKenzie be a 2nd wife?

I don’t think so. I think because Julia Grace died when he was a baby he doesn’t have all the exact facts.   The McKenzie comes from his grandmother. Isabella. She died 1886 so he probably remembered her, and She was a witness and signed as I McKenzie on one of the other daughters marriages.  (As per her Scot heritage which suggests to me she might not have been in the orphanage for very long but that is a wild guess).

I found a document that says Grace McKenzie mother, I am trying to locate it but the website is down at the moment. I will share when I can. Thank you for all this help, I had no idea how to research India links.

I was quoting from reply 63. It has she was visiting and she was a nurse.



Who is R. A. Fairlie?


In 1949 she arrived at Fremantle, going to Melbourne  1105 Whitehorse Road, Box Hill. So…. visiting her brother.  And that links the family doesn't it? I have come out of the Rabbit Hole!

She was still alive 1952. Travelling from UK to Karachi. age 76. A Nurse. last address
8 Rossmore Road E.  Ellesmere Port.

The bits about visiting refer to Lydia Todd NOT R.A.Fairlie who is Robert Andrew Fairlie who was a witness at her wedding and I was so excited to see the name, perhaps I wasn’t quite clear in the way I expressed it.

Are you sketching this information out on a big tree as you go? It IS a confusing family. Not helped by all being Smiths lol.

Added..I have just made a minor alteration to #63 to make it clearer I hope.
