Re: MUNRO family

Only 38% coverage of Sutherland in FreeCEN.

I can't find the family in Sutherland in 1841.

I can't find Williamina in Scotland in 1841 or 1851.

I can't find Catherine using 1841 +/- born anywhere in Scotland and ca* or ka* for given name in Scotland in 1851.

I can't find any of the three in shipping records to Qld.

MUNRO Catherine 20 Admiral Lyons 1858 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reel 2138, [4/4795]

That one is from Durham. Does that rule her out? There is no 2nd shipping reel to get parents.

I can't see deaths in Qld. for her parents.

Re: MUNRO family

The family are in the 1841 census for Clarkhill, Farr: Angus aged 30, shoemaker, Williamina 22, Catherine 4 months. All born in Sutherland.

Adults ages were supposed to be rounded down to the nearest 5 in the 1841 census, but this enumerator didnít apparently follow the rules, so you probably have their correct ages.

Re: MUNRO family

Hello Elwyn,

Thank you very much.

That's handy about the ages.

Age is a bit out for the Catherine I found in shipping records. No sign of a birth reg in Co Durham 1846-1850 using ca* and ka* for given name, so it may be the right one.

Dave

Re: MUNRO family

I cant even find a obituary or death notice for Catherine No marriage notice that i can find neither. I wanted to see if any other Munro's were mentioned in family notices but it appears this lot were media shy.

Re: MUNRO family

If i remember rightly when looking through the burials in Toowoomba, Leofrie Hamilton was buried there.

Nickname of Leftie i read somewhere.
