Thanks Val.

On Thursday or Friday at the local library I'll look up the baptisms and the burial.

The marriage is probably on film at the Mitchell Library.

Oram, Joseph. Wesleyan Church, Regent Street, Sydney;
Wesleyan Parsonage, Cleveland Street; Wesleyan
Church, Chippendale and private residences;
Reels 0227 and 0229.

Usually the records are sorted and filmed by parish but the Wesleyan ones are sorted by minister and filmed as such.


NSW index has John's death as 17th. I will email NSW BDM. I'm still waiting for answers to queries from September.

Thanks Val.

I found a tree that had birth dates in Scotland for John and Christina but could not confirm them on ScotlandsPeople.

Birth BEGG VIOLET J 17479/1915 GEORGE A JESSIE F - PETERSHAM

That's a daughter.

I just realised Jessie remarried before George died.

Divorce George Alfred Begg - Jessie Florence Isabella Begg
Start date: 23 Mar 1936 End date: 06 Sep 1937


I'll resume this tomorrow.

Can't find a baptism for either of them on SP.

Parents = JOHN BEGG/AGNES WILSON
08/04/1821
Hamilton

Geoff

EDIT: SP has Christian's birth as post #15.

Thanks Val.

Thanks Geoff.

I'm sure I entered the right details in SP for John Begg. :confused:

I know I entered Christina not Christian so missed that one.

I have the baptisms, marriage and burial now from local library to post tonight.

Burial V1851101 106/1851 BEGG CHRISTINA AGE 30

Burials in connection with the Scots Church corner of Pitt & Bathurst Sts in the City of Sydney
No. - Christina Begg Age: 30 years Abode: Sydney When Died: - When Buried: 13th May 1851 Ship's Name: - Quality or Profession: Wife of John Begg, Carpenter By whom the Ceremony was performed: D. Blair

Very unusual heading with no Parish or County mentioned. I think that is a breakaway Presbyterian Church and not a member of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland.

Very unusual. JA = Presbyterian Scots Church Sydney but this marriage is not actually one of that set.

Marriage V185336 46/1853 BEGG JOHN - McFARLANE EUPHEMIA - JA

Page 10
Presbyterian Marriages solemnized in the Parish of - in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1853
No. 38
I, Euphemia McFarlane, Spinster, do hereby declare that I am a Member of, or hold Communion with, the Presbyterian Church [of Scotland - crossed out] [signed] -
I, - do hereby declare that I am a Member of, or hold Communion with, the Presbyterian Church of Scotland [signed] -
I, William Grant, of Sydney, Ordained Minister of the Free Church, do hereby certify that John Begg, Widower, of Sydney and Euphemia McFarlane, Spinster, of Sydney, were joined together in Wedlock by me on the Twelfth day of September 1853, at Riley Street Sydney, in the presence of Daniel Angus Kent Street North, Wm. Robert Orr South Head Road, Witnesses.
None signed. [signed] - Minister

Not a single signature. I don't think that was in a church. Possibly a private residence. The previous marriage was at Fort Street Sydney, again not a Church.
