Hello Steve,

Thank you very much.

This one might be a bit harder to find.

Holy Trinity Rotherhithe, Surrey, England

Marriages Mar 1874
Muscatt Margaret Ann St. Olave 1d 279
Muscutt Margaret Ann St. Olave 1d 279
Wedderburn Robert St. Olave 1d 279
Weddersuck Robert St. Olave 1d 279

Margaret's parents are William and Ann TURNER. I can't find that marriage and I think I've tried all variations of the name.

Margaret b. 25 Dec 1852 Rotherhithe, Surrey

Please see if you can find Margaret (possibly even listed as Ann or Annie) in 1861. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Steve,

Thanks. It's a huge family and lots and lots of them were scale makers. Several brothers and cousins ended up in Oz and NZ but I'm mainly interested in the daughter of Robert & Annie MUSKUTT who married an ancestor of mine James SANDS. He was taught scale making by his father-in-law. :D A branch of the firm was established in Leichhardt in Sydney.

Regards,

Dave
