Hello crankypants,

Let's look at the HALKETT-HAY & de FRAINE families. :D

One of each married a SLAUGHTER and I found this one as well:

The Brisbane Courier - Tuesday 16 March 1897
HALKETT-HAY-DE FRAINE.-On the 3rd March, at James-street, Teneriffe, by the Rev. Osborne Lilley, Gilbert, fifth son of the late Charles Halkett-Hay, of Balendoch, Perthshire, Scotland, to Edith Esther, third daughter of the late Mrs. De Fraine, Teneriffe, Brisbane.

Gilbert is Gilbert Lewis (middle name from his mother's name)
and Mrs de FRAINE is Elizabeth Angelina SLAUGHTER b. Jun Q 1847 Cranbrook, Kent d. 9 Jun 1896.

married 25 Sep 1868 Brisbane

William Thomas de FRAINE b. 9 Jul 1846 Luton, Bedford
d. 1914 - parents William Thomas & Emma

Kate Agnes HALKETT-HAY b. ?? where d. 27 Aug 1943

1943/B63037 parents Charles Halkett-Hay Catherine Hawkins Lewis
Balmoral Cemetery
Slaughter Kate Agnes F 04 / 09 / 1943 75 years

married 25 Dec 1895

Edward Percy SLAUGHTER b. 8 May 1872 d. Dec 1953

The "Charles Halkett-Hay, of Balendoch, Perthshire" has not been much help so far. I still can't find where and when Kate Agnes was born.

The "Catherine Hawkins Lewis" has not been much help so far either.

I noticed there are lots of events in Qld. BD&M with HALKETT and HAY as middle names.

Please see what you can find.
