Alexander was married to Mary Burnett in 1861 in South Australia, his father,'s name was William, I am trying to find out when he arrived in Australia and where he came from. :-)

Does his marriage or death cert not give details of his parents or where he was born?

There is a good chance he came from Scotland but you may need more you know his mothers name?

Sex: F

Page: 129
Cross Reference:

Then see 1861 England Census

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1800
Relation: Head
Spouse's Name: Mary Ann Noble
Gender: Male
Where born: Monk Dohan

On IGI, Frederick recorded as Frederic Minter NOBLE bapt in Framlingham,Suffolk.

It seems a big gap between births of Walter & Annie- so maybe 2nd wife?
Did not doublecheck on image.

Hope this is of some help.

I'm intrigued by the appearance of 'Minter' as a middle name in the Noble family. If anyone can explain why it came to be used, could they let me know please?
