The death in NSW shows hewas 85 when he died in 1966 so that fits with your date of 1880 (though not his various dates)

Hi Cherilyn

I don't know if you can help me as I don't have a lot of information. I am looking for Edward Chapman Lindsay who was born on the 16th March 1880 in Kirriemuir, Forfarshire (Angus), Scotland. He was illegitimate son of Margaret Mealmaker Lindsay who was also born in Kirriemuir.

I don't know when he left Scotland though according one of his cousins children he fought for Australia in WW1.

He had four brothers also all illegitimate and one of them named his grandfather as his father on his marriage certificate. Edwards' grandparents were Peter Lindsay and Mary Black Mealmaker and they also came from Kirriemuir.

I was wondering if Edward married and went on to have a family of his own?

Hi Graham

Sorry no marriage or death found for Peter in NSW. Too many P HALLS to locate him in telephone directory and not in electoral rolls to 1980 in NSW though a man by that name appears in Victoria 1954-80. and another in Queensland 1977-80.

No death for him in Victoria to 1985. :-(

Hi Beth

Does Frank have a middle name? Was he Frank not Francis?

Can't see him in NSW but he may not have stayed there. No death at Ryerson Index.

There is a F MORETON in Western Australia in the White Pages online phone directory???

Sorry, not much help :-(


Graham Report 6 Aug 2013 08:14

Hi Cherilyn,


My fathers youngest sister was Jean Esme Daniel who married Denis Hall. They had a son in 1939 who was Peter Thomas Hall. They came originally from Manchester.
The family emigrated to Australia where eventually Jean and Denis divorced. Jean died in 1993 in New South Wales. I have a copy of her death certificate. She took her own life.
The question is, is Peter( who would be in his 70s now) still living. Could you look up for me if there is a marriage record for him or a death record please. I cannot find any information about him in UK records so I am assuming he is or was still in Australia.
