A daughter Isabella WALLACE born 1849 Galston, Ayr according to a tree but I can't find the birth. John, Isobel, and both daughters end up in Queensland. I don't have them in shipping records yet.

I'd like a look up for the family in 1851 please. I can't find them. :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Julie.

A real mystery. The death reg for Isabella (b. abt 1849) incorrectly lists her father as John WALLACE and mother as Isabella (no maiden name)

A half-sister. Well I don't think we have two different Isabella BORLANDs.

Now I'm really confused.
 
Marriage 21 Sep 1876/B05359 Wylie James Malcolm - Wallace Isabella

Can't find a notice in TROVE.

Death 1909/C01441 Wylie Isabella - John Wallace - Isabella -

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Tuesday 8 June 1909 p.4
DEATHS
WYLIE.-On the 27th May, 1909, at Chillagoe, Mrs. James Malcolm, aged 62 years.

Age at death puts her birth in 1847.

On the birth and death reg of children she is either WALLACE or CAREY.

Some children have the middle name Carey.


Deaths
24 May 1896/C03959 Carey Isabel - James Boreland - Isabel Morton
27 Feb 1902/C04527 Carey John Wilson - William Carey - Agnes Cleghorn

Toowong Cemetery
Portion 13 Section 41 Grave 12
Carey Isobel Borland 26 / 05 / 1896 Unknown
Carey Robert 07 / 12 / 1885 Unknown

Toowing Cemetery
Portion 13 Section 41 Grave 11/12
Carey John Wilson 01 / 03 / 1902 Unknown
Carey James Boland 11 / 07 / 1924 Unknown
 
So a marriage in 1850 in Lanark and a daughter Janet born 1858 in Largs and all three end up in Queensland. So in shipping records under CAREY or variation.

This family can be ruled out. Isabella's maiden name is BERRY/BERRIE and children born in Dundee and Fife.

John Wallace
Scotland, Marriages, 1561-1910
marriage: 08 Jul 1837 Dundee,​Angus,​Scotland
spouse: Isabell Berry
 
Piece: SCT1851/593 Place: Ayr -Ayrshire Enumeration District: 8
Civil Parish: Galston Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: Galston
Folio: 0 Page: 30 Schedule: 141
Address: 4 Kiln Knowe
Surname First name(s) Rel Status *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
WALLACE Jean Head W F 21 Flowerer Ayrshire - Galston
WALLACE Isabella Dau U F 8m Ayrshire - Galston

There is no sign of a birth/baptism to fit age of 8 months with first name starting with 'i' anywhere in Ayrshire. So is that the one born 10 June 1850? Did all the other children die before the 1851 census? So far I can't find any of the others.


Is it the same Isabella in post #1? Would she marry the 2nd time using her maiden name?

Is father = John on death reg an error?

Is it coincidence the WYLIE children have middle name Carey?

Birth reg for the children have mother = Isabella WALLACE.

Death reg have either 'Wallace' or 'Carey'. You can't tell from the index if Carey is a middle name or surname.

Possibly, after her mother remarried Isabella called herself Isabella Carey Wallace.

Such a narrow window but I still can't find them in shipping records.

I think I'm clear on Isabella now. :biggrin:
 
This is the evidence needed to prove theories:

Death 1952/B40782 Carey John - John Wilson - Isabel Boland ** late Wallace

The Isabella in post #9 is not mine. Probably not the one in the census in post #12 either. Age is out and where are all the siblings in post #10, also the mother is Jean.

It seems there is no birth/baptism record for my Isabella. Several trees have her birth as 1848 Galston, Ayr but I'd say that was a guess just working from the marriage.

I'm no longer worried Isabella's death reg has father as John - her step-father anyway.

I still can't find the CAREYs and Isabella in shipping records.
