I've had a look at the marriages and none of them are even slightly close to Wolfe - I've had a quick look on ancestry and there doesnt seem to be anything on there either.

Sorry I've not been much help but if you get any more information give me a shout if you want anything else looked up.



Susan Report 27 May 2010 09:00

Hi Emma, If possible can you look for two births for me

George Liddell c 1883 parents are Robert Liddell and Catherine Logan, possibly born Airdrie or Coatbridge.

Thomas Tracey c 1888 Coatbridge parents Michael Tracey/ Janet Armstrong.

Kind Regards Susan

Thanks for your kind offer Emma.

Could you please look for a birth for Donald Sinclair ... born 1887 .... in Wick, Caithness.

Mother's name ... Johanna/Joanna
Father's name .... Donald



Emma Report 27 May 2010 10:21


I've had a look for a birth for Helen and James and can't seem to find one - I don't know if you have ancestry or not - I used to have a membership but cancelled it so I can only see some details but I had a look on there to see if it could give you any indication of a year for them - there are 2 people on Ancestry that have Robert Munro & Bathia Murray - They have that Helen was born in either 1856 or 1857 - Isabella was born in 1857. They also had daughters - Ann born in 1860? - Catherine in 1863? - Willianina in 1868 all in Durham, England - They also have a William 1849 - Scotland and James 1853 Scotland.

Hope this is a little helptul



Maurice Report 27 May 2010 11:24

Hi Emma,

Had a look for a birth of a Robert Ingram born in Scotland around the year you gave me - although none of them were born in Ayrshire .. You may be able to match up names with children you have or even grandchildren as they tended to have no imagination and just reuse the same names over and over

Robert Ingram
12 November 1809
Father - Robert Ingram
Mother - Jean Lockhart

Robert Ingram
12 May 1811
Father - George Ingram
Mother - No mother named

Robert Ingram

Father - George Ingram
Mother - Jean Smith

Robert Ingram
19 November 1813
Father - William Ingram
Mother - Margaret Laing

Robert Ingram

Hope this helps

Heather Report 27 May 2010 12:18

Hi Emma,
Thank you for your time. I have taken the last one down as a possible to keep in mind. You are so right about scottish names. The same names have been passed down to this day in Australia.
Thanks Heather

Kind regards,

Hi Emma,
You do look very busy but I just wondered if you had time to look for the birth for Elizabeth Heany, you found her marriage for me in 1925 and according to that she would be born c 1907 in glasgow.
I am having difficulty finding her parents marriage and so just wanted to check their names, they should be Edward and Beatrice or Bridget McGoldrick,
thanks once again


Frank Report 27 May 2010 13:48

Thankyou very much Emma for your efforts.I will add these people to my research.


Reece Report 27 May 2010 14:53

Hello Emma,

Thank you for your kind offer. I'm looking for the birth (and any siblings?) of

George MORRISON b. c1833 at Renton, Dunbartonshire. His parents were John and Elizabeth according to his death record. (1904).

George emigrated to NSW in the early 1850's and married my great aunt Ann Jones in Maclean in 1863. I have the names of their 11 children.

I have not been able to pinpoint him in the Immigration records as there are a number of George Morrisons in the early 1850's.

Thank you for your kind help.

Hello Emma
Thank you for your kind offer
I have Alexander Murray a soldier who Married Cecilia Law ???
found 3 of their children Elizabeth 1781, Helen 1782, Alexander 1785 child 4 on his birth,but I know he had Marion 1790c and possibly Catherine 1788.
Cecilia died 1807 Linlithgow West Lothian
I 've found a Alexander Murray aged 93 on the 1841 census St Cuthberts, but not on the 51 which is understandable given his age
I would be grateful if you could see if you could find a death for him.

Hi Emma
Thanks for the offer. Can you please look up the birth of Alexander Findlay, he was born about 1892 Edinburgh Midlothian Scotland. His parents never married but their names were John Grieve Orr and Bessie Buchanan. Alexander was adopted by the Findlay Family but I don't know when so I don't know if he was registered in his father's name of Orr or his mother's name of Buchanan. I don't know of any relatives names. Alexander was a member of the Scots Guard. Alexander married Ethel Mary Richardson in 1916 at West Ham, London.
He and his wife and two daughters, Margaret & Joan migrated to Australia on 21/12/1921.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
