Hi

Images sent.

1903 N.S.W Electoral Roll - Parramatta (Parramatta Polling Place)
HARRIS Herbert, Boundary-street, ironworks
HARRIS Florence Emily, Boundary-street, domestic duties
also
HARRIS Catherine, Boundary-street, domestic duties
HARRIS Martha, Boundary-street, domestic duties

Can't find James GLENDENNING senior in shipping records, can't blame him arriving before Agnes and 11 children.>:D

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Florence is in the index as GLENDINING so I searched for James with glen% and still can't find him. The shipping record clearly indicates spouse James is already in Australia. I bet the vessel had a matron/nanny on board. :D

I presume Martha must be Bertie's mother. She is listed as a witness to a birth in Sydney in 1903 and by 1908 was in WA. Catherine has to be Martha's son Evan's spouse but why is she not with Evan ??? We'll get to Evan later. Doing Bertie's children first.


John HARRIS b. 1866 Neath d. 1947 Mosman Park (have burial)

married 1889 Auburn

Amy Florence ELLIS b. 1870 Hindmarsh d. 1929 Parramatta

Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Another variation:

James GLENDINNING Spouse: Agness SCOTT
Marriage: 16 Jun 1865 Blythswood, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

Interesting that the shipping record on PROV has the name as GLENDINNING and the family as UNASSISTED. :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

Another variant CLENDENNING.

Now I have a small problem with John HARRIS, we have 59 to chose from in 1930 er. As Amy died in 1929 Parramatta there are two here, do you have any idea on his occupation.

John Harris Male 1930 New South Wales Parramatta Hornsby
John Harris Male 1930 New South Wales Parramatta Sutherland

(Sutherland) turns out to be HARRIS John William (indexed as John, image is John William).

(Hornsby) HARRIS John, Aoba, Muriel street, Hornsby, railway ganger

cheers

Hello crankypants,

I only have 12 John HARRISsss in my tree. :D I'll see what I can find.

I don't have an Emily Bertha married to a John in my tree.

When John enlisted in WA in 1916 his occupation was furnace man and spouse Amy was living in Cottesloe Beach.

E/R 1925 Fremantle.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. There is a park in Mosman in NSW but Mosman Park is WA. I used to think Glenelg was in Victoria. My brain has been rewired for that one. :D


Evan HARRIS b. 1868 Neath d. 1941 Liverpool

married 1888 Auburn

Catherine Horne SANDS b. 1870 Sydney d. 1905 Granville

Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. That's a bit curious. I thought it might have been because that a street number determined which sub-division but there is no # for John in 1925 either.

The fourth redistribution was proclaimed on 13 September 1922 and the resultant boundaries were used in the 1922, 1925, 1928, 1929, 1931 and 1934 elections.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking. Evan didn't remarry and I doubt you will find him listed with someone who may appear to be his spouse. I'm not sure. Golden Grove is an inner-city suburb not out west near Liverpool. Aged 68 then so no occupation would fit. All the children had married by 1923 so I don't expect to see any still living with him.

Died in State Hospital and Home, Liverpool. I don't have a copy of Evan's death certificate. I have a copy of Catherine's. Hard to read but I think it says Rookwood CofE.

OUR DEAR MOTHER
CATHERINE HARRIS
DIED 28th NOV 1905


Rookwood Cemetery Headstone:
OUR DEAR FATHER EVAN HARRIS
DIED 23rd SEPTEMBER 1941
AGED 73

Regards,

Dave
