Re: The AITKEN brothers

Just to add to the mix:

Margaret Aitken, sister of George and Thomas, who married William Murray, was born in Broughton in 1827 acccording to her daughter's QLD birth certficate. Eliza Lester Murray was born on 10 July 1860 at Coochin Coochin station, to William Murray (36), b. Dalkeith, and Margaret Aitken (33) b. Broughton.

My gt grandmother was Jane Munsden Buckpitt Covington, named after her late aunt Jane Munsden Buckpitt, nee Aitken. Her mother was Isabella Borthwick Aitken, daughter of Thomas. Munsden is clearly a mispronunciation of Lumsden that has persisted, and Borthwick may well be the same. Another sister of Isabella and Jane was Margaret Murray Aitken (named after her aunt, wife of William Murray). Murray was sometimes spelled Murry and Moray.

In all, the family of Thomas Aitken (and Margaret Storey) was:

Elizabeth (1853-1941)
Isabella Borthwick (1854-1935)
Jame Lumsden (1855-1876)
John (1858-1941)
Margaret Murray (1869-1960)

Re: The AITKEN brothers

oops - missed the youngest, Charlotte (1869-1960) who was the most interesting of all. Married a (German) soap manufacturer in QLD and went to live in Germany in the 1890s. This Aussie of Scottish descent lived through two world wars in Germany and died in Frankfurt in 1960.

Re: The AITKEN brothers

Saved the image from film at the library yesterday and it seems rather odd.

There is no note to say one baptism is out of place and no correction of any dates, so how can that sequence be correct in the register?

Parish of Ipswich in the County of Stanley
Born - Baptised by William Lambie Nelson
26 Dec 1854 13 Mar 1855
21 May 1853 3 Sep 1854
11 Jun 1852 24 Mar 1855
