Ship: 'Duncan'
Native Place: Edinburgh
Relatives: and Family
Father: Buchan, Alexander

Margaret Buchan 30
Native Place: Edinburgh

Death 8774/1902 SIMPSON JANET - WILLIAM - MARGARET - BURWOOD * 29 Sep 1902


The Sydney Morning Herald - Thu 2 Oct 1902 p.5
THE LATE MRS. JANET SIMPSON.
The death of Mrs. Janet Simpson, relict of the late Ebenezer Simpson, occurred at Ashford Cottage, Park-road, Burwood, on Monday. The deceased was aged 73 years, and lived for a considerable time at Ross-trevor, Narellan, where she was held in high esteem. The deceased's mother died at the age of 92, ...

Death 11299/1897 BUCHAN MARGARET - UNKNOWN UNKNOWN - CAMDEN * 4 Oct 1897

So Margaret WALCH and William BUCHAN both born abt 1805.

I can't see a death for William.

Janet born abt 1831 - can't find a birth/bap or a marriage for her parents.

So far I can only see this possible - there are three with father Alexander

BUCHAN
WILLIAM
ALEXANDER BUCHAN/JANET BROUN FR3244 (FR3244)
0
07/02/1804
685/3
110 178
Canongate


Don't have enough children to get possible mother's names for William and Margaret.

No marriage for an Andrew WALCH 1780 - 1807.

Thanks,

Dave

Re: BUCHAN family

I think the Birth of William to Alexander Buchan and Janet Brown is correct as first child named after paternal Grandfather. Any issue in Australia with a middle name ?

Re: BUCHAN family

ScotlandsPeople_OPR685_010_0630_0263Z.jpgWilliam Buchan Margaret Henderson marr.jpg

It's a long time ago since I stopped believing in coincidences in this hobby.Although a first marr. has not been found, i can say the same for my GGG Grandmother c1794 who had been married and widowed ,with no issue before my GG Grandmother was born 1818. It was she who reg. her mothers death, and no name for 1st.husband was given.

You will note William is a Mason ,just like Alexander c1781 in the Census.

Re: BUCHAN family

Thanks Val.

Interesting, because I have Buchan, Hunt and Perdriau connections in my tree.

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/133281875
Camden News (NSW) - Thu 7 Oct 1897 p.4
Obituary.
MRS. MARGARET BUCHAN.
-Aetat 92.
On the 4th inst. passed away from our midst an old and esteemed resident and one of the oldest of our old pioneers. The late Mrs. Buchan died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Ferguson, of the Australian Nursery, Camden. ... In 1840 the family came to Camden and the stone carving in St. John Church still testify as to Mr. Buchan skill as a sculptor and Stone-mason. He also made and presented to the church the font at present in use. Mrs. Buchan 's only son in conjunction with Messrs. Perdriau and Hunt were the originators of the Balmain ferry, - started with two boats Gipsy Queen and Waterman, fare then 6d. ... The deceased was buried at St John's Church Cemetery. Mr. J. D. Rankin conducted the funeral arrangements.

A rival company started up several years later and charged only 3d.
