NSW Marriage 10387/1923 STIMSON WALTER E - MORISON JEAN - GRANVILLE ** 21 July

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 26 November 1996 p.38
DEATHS
STIMSON, Jean (nee Morison).- November 24, 1996, (peacefully) at hospital, late of Fairfield West, loved wife of Eric (deceased), ...

It would seem the name is the not so common MORISON and not MORRISON.

This one does not fit with age and middle initial but more evidence to rule it out would be good:

Birth 6897/1900 MORRISON JEAN N - JOHN - EDITH - ROCKDALE

1943 NSW Electoral Roll - Robertson - Fairfield
STIMSON Walter Eric, Thornley road, Fairfield West, fruit-grower
STIMSON Jean, Thornley road, Fairfield West, home duties

Enlisted Merrylands, NSW 8 Apr 1942 - S/N N372255 11th Bn - NOK Stimson, Jean living at Fairfield West, NSW - Discharged 21 Feb 1944

Everything points to Jean having no middle name. Looking for her birth and parents.

Thanks,

Dave

14994/1939 COOPER ERIC GEORGE MORISON JEAN LUTTON PADDINGTON
842/1945 HUMPHREYS JOHN DAVIDSON MORISON JEAN ELIZABETH ALBURY

But no births in NSW 1870 - 1913 for a Jean MORISON. Births from 1870 - 1913:

6897/1900 MORRISON JEAN N JOHN EDITH ROCKDALE
8532/1907 MORRISON JEAN L JOHN G SARAH A WALCHA
11358/1910 MORRISON JEAN H ROBERT VIOLET S SYDNEY
16305/1913 MORRISON JEAN E JOHN SOPHIA J GUNNEDAH
22588/1913 MORRISON JEAN E WILLIAM S MYRTLE E WAVERLEY


It would seem from the death index that none of those above five died young.

No deaths in NSW 1880 - 1983 for a Jean MORISON. Lots for Jean MORRISON.

Ok, that didn't help. :rolleyes:

Not enough births in NSW so several including the one we are after were born elsewhere.
 
Another one ruled out.

Ok. No birth in NSW index that fits for the Jean who married Walter in 1923.
 
Hello and welcome to the Forum.

Some new details have been found since 2014. It has not been easy because not all related events have the name as Morison. Many have the more common Morrison.

Marriage 6634/1892 MORRISON JOSEPH - CRAPP NORAH E - REDFERN * 15 Oct 1892

I had that one checked by BDM and it is registered as Morrison.

Our name is often spelt mistakenly as Morrison by others. I have a few documents myself under Morrison :) if you have any questions I can see if anyone knows anything about our Jeannie but it matches all your information and I've seen pictures of her family.
 
Thanks, but I think this is sorted now. It's a branch of my tree off a main line.

I now have the correct birth, marriage and death notice.
