Thanks dave.

That looks as if the tree might be correct. It won't fully load so I can't get any other details from it.

Thanks dave.

Jane STEWART b. 25 Jan 1874 Dunfermline, Fife
William & Jane

That could well be Jane's niece - daughter of older brother William.


I think this is the niece:

Household schedule number: 33
Roll:CSSCT1901_134
Address: 39 James St
Elizabeth Myles 52 Shirt dresser Inverness
Jane Stewart boarder 28 Factory Worker Dunfermline, fifeshire


She was in NSW by 1930 but I have no arrival yet. The middle name makes it a certainty.

Death 1916 FINLAYSON Jane (STEWART) Dunfermline, Fife Age 64

I still can't be sure this is my Jane.

Also can't be sure the Jane in 1901 in Midlothian is mine or not because I can't tell from the tree what the surname is.

There is only one Jane/Janet/Jean/Jessie STEWART born Dunfermline 1 Jan 1851 to 31 Dec 1857 so that looks good.

Could well be my Jane never left Dunfermline.
