I don't know how sure you are of the parents, DAve but found this one quite interesting with the similarities of occupations etc.

Hello Barbara,

Thanks for looking.

It looks like the right birth record in Argyll with this death in Queensland:

31 Oct 1921/C03652 Dalzell James Allan - Robert Dalzell - Annie Elder

Marriage notice shows a middle initial 'A' and middle name in E/R:

1919 QLD Electoral Roll - Lilley - Nambour
DALZELL James Allan, Diddillibah, Woombye, contractor
DALZELL Mary, Diddillibah, Woombye, home duties

I wonder if we can prove Mary ELDER is Ann's sister.

Dave

It would seem with the same middle initial that this is the correct arrival:

Unassisted to Victoria
DALZELL JAS A Age 19 - JAN 1857 TUDOR B 119 005
Joiner - To Melbourne

so James should be in 1851 census.

Don't know the port of departure yet.

Thanks Geoff,

That one is not on the OzShips list for 1857 voyage.

Don't think he lived in Liverpool for 6 years. :biggrin:

I've seen a couple of trees but not that one :2fun:

Any sign of his parents in 1851?

FreeCEN has 100% coverage of Lanark in 1851, so I'd better look.

1861
Civil Parish: Cambusnethan
County: Lanarkshire
Address: 20 Stewarton St., Wishaw
Dalziel Robert Head 60 Builder Wishaw
Dalziel Ann Wife 54 Carluke
Dalziel Agnes dau 26 Wishaw
Dalziel Jessie 24 Wishaw

Her mother was Hannah LLOYD but I don't think Mary had a middle name.

Birth, marriage and death records have no middle name.

I wanted to trace John or Robert but can't even find them on SP.

I can't find the marriage of Robert to Ann ELDER either.
