Death 1860
ADAM ISABELLA
573/2 221
Paisley Low Church

No age and no mmn for that one.

Or Isabella died before 1855 and there is no burial in Renfrew in OPR. ??

If this is John's 2nd marriage then there is no death for Isabella in Vic. and no arrival found for John and son Robert and any other children.

Marriage 1856 ADAMS John (b. ) - QUILLINAN Mary (b. ) Vic. #1827

Don't think that is the correct one, Dave..

Anc & FMP have the ED as 33. Anc. has Abbey Burgh and FMP has Abbey Paisley. Occ = Shawl weaver. Parents = Richard & Margaret.

Thanks Geoff.

I've been trying to trace Archibald to see if he stays in Scotland and the ADAM - BARR family can be ruled out or if he ends up in Victoria or NSW and connects with known names there.

A birth/baptism and 1841 census for that one if not the one in post#1.

Trying to trace the Archibald in post #5 and #12.


I don't know that the John and son Robert in post #1 are the ones that fit these two deaths ...

Death 1909 ADAM Jno 80 Jno Jean McCRACKEN d. Melbourne East, Vic. #13259

Death 2399/1880 ADAMS ROBERT JOHN ISABELLA SYDNEY * 24 Nov 1880 * age 30

... therefore trying to trace Archibald to confirm or eliminate ADAM - BARR.

That Robert is the son of that John.

Does not say only surviving son. Also, if it's the right John he had another son who died young by his 2nd wife.

Marriage 1856 ADAMS John (b. ) - QUILLINAN Mary (b. ) Vic. #1827

Birth 1866 ADAM Jean John Mary QUILLINAN Vic. #11825
Birth 1869 ADAM Ellen Jno Mary QUILLINAN Vic. #24180

Death 1875 ADAM William - John Mary QUILLINAN Vic. #14556


Archibald may have died 1851 - 1854 with no record of burial on SP.

I can't prove it is the right family. Age at death for John does not agree with age in 1841 census.

Any death reg on a tree for Robert who died 1880 to get Isabella's maiden name?

If it is the right family then John and Robert left Scotland before 1856.

But no death for Isabella.

Can't find a marriage or baptism for children of a John ADAM and a Jean McCRACKEN.

No baptism on SP for a John around 1829 son of John & Jean.

A calico block printer becomes a farmer. ?

Marriage 95/1873 ADAM ROBERT - DUNN MARY ANN - SYDNEY * 21 Jan 1873

Not on the Sydney CofE database so probably Presbyterian, so no mother's name for Robert.

Thanks Geoff.

Any arrival for John & Robert?

No death for Isabella and nothing to prove Robert's mother's maiden name was Barr.
