Hello,

Looking for the marriage of John PATER & Matilda DIX probably before 1866 - a son born in Emerald Hill, Victoria that year.

Thanks,

Dave

If a tree is correct we should be looking in Wiltshire. :biggrin:

Marriages Mar Qtr 1857
Dix Matilda Cirencester 6a 447
Pater John Cirencester 6a 447


Birth of a daughter Emma in 1859 but the tree gives not pob. May or may not be this one:

Births Jun Qtr 1859
Pater Emma Mary Agnes Islington 1b 285

Oh:

Deaths Jun Qtr 1948
Pater Emma M A 88 North Bucks. 6a 313

The 1859 birth might be in Victoria so that rules out 1861 census.

Also possibly in Victoria before 1867 the related marriage of Peter YOUNG & Susan ERSKINE.

I can't see it in the Vic. BMD index 1850-1868 nor NSW 1850-1870.

Does not look like England either.

I can't find them in 1851 and I can't find them in shipping records 1848-1851.

Curious. A tree has them in Scotland in 1851. The tree is wrong - her father is Thomas ERSKINE so this can't be Susan in 1851:

Piece: SCT1851/693 Place: Liberton -Midlothian Enumeration District: 4
Civil Parish: Liberton Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 753 Page: 7 Schedule: 31
Address: Echobank
Surname First name(s) Rel Status *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
YOUNG William Head W M 63 Coal Merchant East Lothian - Morham
YOUNG Susan Daur U F 19 Midlothian - Newton

The tree has no residence for spouse Peter in 1851.

Yes, thanks Ozn, I've seen that one and similar. They list a daughter Harriet born 1849 but no pob. Next one son James born 1851 Victoria.

I can't find them in shipping records 1848-1851.

Hi Dave

There are 7 more Young's on the ship, but the following appear to be the closest from the list, ages seem to fit, not sure about James b. 1851, unless he was b. en route...

YOUNG PETER 25 SEP 1852 EUROPA B 008 010
YOUNG SUSAN 20 SEP 1852 EUROPA B 008 010
YOUNG HARRIETT 3 SEP 1852 EUROPA B 008 010

Thanks Geoff.

It looks as though James must have been born on the voyage.

One of those Victorian ones on fiche at the library that have almost no additional info apart from occupation.
