William Burns

Trying to find the parents of William Burns (Munro) born 1870 Wexford Ireland. I do not know how the Munro came into being. He died 1943 Toowoomba Queensland, Australia. Any information would be appreciated.

Re: William Burns

There is a birth reg on Familysearch for a William Byrne.

William Byrne
Birth
1870
Wexford, Ireland
Quarter and Year -1870
Reg Dist. Wexford
Volume 4

If you do a search, you will find several baptism records with various parents for the same year of 1870 and +/- 2 years, and same surname spelling.

Did he marry in Australia, and any idea of year arriving.


Steve.

Were his parents named on his marriage cert, or death cert.

Re: William Burns

Certainly intriguing re Munro, would be interesting to find out why!

I wondered if it was anything to do with Albert's birth, but the father is omitted on the birth cert

I haven't seen William in 1903 yet.. Ethel may be just too young to appear in 1903..
