Hi Kerri

I am looking for any info on my gt uncle Thomas Canning born Glasgow 1935 but joined the Big Brother Scheme late 40's early 50's and left for Sydney. Not sure what happened to him but we all would love to find out. He may have got a job shearing sheep but the last the family heard he was trying to buy a pub/hotel. Can you please help me find out any info.

Hi Tonya
Not sure what to suggest. Perhaps try Katrina on message board for Electorol Roll lookup or search Ryerson Index for death (just google).

Hi Kerri

Could you have a look for the following please -

Louisa Hannah Singleton born about 1886 in Victoria
Florence Gertrude Singleton born about 1888 in Victoria

Their father was William Chapman Singleton he died in Bourke, Victoria in 1940 and the two daughters were named on his death certificate. Their mother was Sarah Elizabeth Creighton born 1864 in Greensborough, Victoria.

Many thanks

Hello Kerri,

Thank you for your kind offer!! Could you find a marriage date and place for William Watkinson and Ann Walters/Walter in Victoria in the 1860s?
Thanks once again.
Regards, Margaret

Hi Margaret & jax

Kerri is defiinitely still around...maybe hasn't seen this one though, I know there is a newer thread than this for her SA & Vic lookups.

Apologies to Kerri for stepping in but I have found the marriage you are looking for, Margaret - it is registered as Wm WALKINSON to Anne WALTER in 1862 (reg 3811). They had a son named Isaac born the same year in Collingwood, as WATKINSON (reg 1621). You would need to get the certificate to find the date and place: you can order an uncertified image fairly cheaply (by Australian standards anyway, not compared to UK prices!).

Looks like the WATKINSONs then moved to NSW? Another son Edward W born 1865. Son Isaac died in NSW in 1909.

Thank you for your reply Cherilyn, regarding William Watkinson and Anne Walter!!
I'm so sorry ....I didn't realise you had answered my query until just now, when I returned to my searches....!
I'd quite forgotten that a reply to a query doesn't automatically trigger a notification to my email inbox.
I appreciate your kindness in providing the information that I asked for ....very nice of you Cherilyn!

Best Wishes to Kerri and her generous offer, too.

Kind Regards, Marg
