Thanks Geoff.

I'll get a copy of the 1863 marriage when I get more credits. The AUD is at a four-year low at the moment. :rolleyes:

It might have listed the Regiment but now I think it won't because it's likely he was discharged before 1863.

It might help with Martha.

There is no record of any birth in Lanark around that date for Martha. Looked previously with no results for her and her parents in census.

A tree had death for John in 1863 and Elizabeth in 1868, but where? Have not been found.

Only two things are definite:

John MORRISON & Elizabeth REID
21 Oct 1819 Dundee, Angus
Batch: M112824


Agnes Reid Morrison
Christening Date: 29 Feb 1824
Christening Place: Dundee, Angus
Birth Date: 22 Feb 1824
John Morrison & Elizabeth Reid
Batch: C112828

Marriage might have John's occupation or it might list him as deceased.

Might have a pob for Martha that's not Lanark. Age at death points to 1834.



The only one born in Lanark around that time:

Martha Morrison b. 29 Sep 1838 Barony, Lanark
James Morrison & Jean Mcinnes
Batch: C119667

1851
Civil parish Barony
County: Lanark
Address: 6 Cannle Street
John Stevenson Head 30 Spirit merchant Glasgow
Jane Wife 24 Glasgow
Jane dau 1 Glasgow
Martha Morrison Sister in law 12 Glasgow
Mane? Stevenson Sister 16 Glasgow

That Jane may belong to James and Jane Morrison.

Hmmm...

There are a couple of trees that have them in Aberdeenshire in 1881, no obvious ref to Lanarkshire... a little mystifying at this point :rolleyes:

If that is James and Martha then that's the only time Martha is Mary and age is way out. Image only has name and age.

Also there is very little time between marriage and departure. No departure date:

arrival: David McIvor
Destination: Hervey Bay 1863 Jul 9
Background
Date Item Details Source
primary source QSA: imm 16/184
book David McIvor 1863, Gould Books
