Hi,

I am looking for any information on my great-grandfather George Palmer's (1901-1958 ) parents who I believe are Elizabeth Catherine Gorman born 1874 and died 1954. His father is James Palmer, but I have no birth date or death date.

James Palmer was a pilot station keeper on Morton Island in Queensland.

Any information on James Palmer would be helpful.

Sarah

Hello Sarah,


Death 1954/B4740 Elizabeth Catherine Palmer - Daniel Gorman - Johannah Hayes

Death 1958/B24635 George Elliott Palmer - James - Elizabeth Catherine Gorman


Marriage 1891/C1474 Gorman Elizabeth Catherine - Palmer James

Would you like the full dates or do you have them already?

Always best to start here and work backwards. I'll search some more.

Regards,

Dave

Birth 1875/C2188 Elizabeth Catherine Gorman - Daniel - Hannah Hayes

Can't tell at the moment but that could be December 1874. But I can get the date if you need it.

Marriage 1864/B0974 Gorman Daniel - Hayes Johanna


This is perhaps the last born in Qld.

1910/B23979 Edwin Griffiths Palmer - James - Elizabeth Catherine Gorman

We need someone with access to the full Electoral Roll and not just the index to see up to what date a James is living with Elizabeth Catherine.

Elizabeth Catherine Palmer 1954 Queensland Petrie

James Palmer 1954 Queensland Petrie

That could be James senior or junior. We need the Sub-Division, address and occupation.

Birth 1893/C01528 James Palmer - James - Elizabeth Catherine Gorman

Death 1958/B24095 James Palmer - James - Elizabeth Catherine Gorman


I hope an occupation in the Electoral Rolls will at least give us a year range for a death for James.

I can't find a tree that helps and too many possible deaths in the index without more to work with.

Thank you for you help.

George Palmer's parents marriage record for 1891. I have James Palmer living in Bulwer in 1905 with Elizabeth Catherine Gorman. They then move to Morten Island in 1908. I have both of them living at Morten Island until 1925. This from the Australian Electoral Rolls.

1851
Piece: 442 Place: Kirkcaldy - Fife
Civil Parish: Kirkcaldy Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: Kirkcaldy
Folio: 0 Page: 16 ED:11 Schedule: 61
Address: High Street
Surname First name(s) Rel Status *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
PALMER James Head M M 28 Umbrella Maker Shropshire - Endlaw
PALMER Jean Wife M F 27 - Ross and Cromarty - Cromarty
PALMER William Son - M 5m - Fife - Kirkcaldy


I have not yet found the marriage.

3x James in Shropshire born around 1823.

Endlaw is probably Ludlow so we are down to two possibles:

James Palmer
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
christening: 27 Jan 1822 LUDLOW,SHROPSHIRE,ENGLAND
parents: James Palmer, Mary

James Palmer

christening: 01 Sep 1822 LUDLOW,SHROPSHIRE,ENGLAND
parents: Francis Palmer, Ann
