Marriages Sep 1855
Morgan Daniel Merthyr T 11a 486
Beynon Charlotte Merthyr T 11a 486

Harriet Ann MORGAN b. abt 1865 ? Wales

I can't find a baptism for Harriet.

John Wallis RUNCIMAN b. 31 Aug 1853 Co Wexford, Ireland

Both arrived in Australia before 1898. ???

They married in NSW in 1898 but I can't find either in shipping records. Yes, I know that marriage seems a bit late. :) I hope we at least have some luck with Harriet.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Think i might have found your John ...... with 3 of his sisters :confused:

NSW archives
Passengers on the ship S S Port Pirie - Arrived 17 Sep 1886

RUNCIMAN Anne 24 Port Pirie 1886 Sydney and sisters
RUNCIMAN Bella 22 Port Pirie 1886 Sydney and sisters
RUNCIMAN Jane 18 Port Pirie 1886 Sydney and sisters
RUNCIMAN John 25 Port Pirie 1886 Sydney

His sisters names correspond with the below info

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=elizabethcarcher&id=I200886

And just for interest sake found the below

Still looking for Harriet's arrival.
 
Thanks gibbo. ;)

I didn't have the burial and headstone MI. Age at death confirms the 1853 birth for John.

Yes, they are three of his sisters. Others of the family also arrived including brother Thomas born 1856. Thomas has not been found in shipping records and based on age I ruled that one out for John W. But, then I can't explain the John in that record. :rolleyes:
 
Age at death rules this one out:

MORGAN Harriet 24 'Merkara' 11 May 1883 IMM/117 738 Z1960 M1699 ?

I've not had a chance yet to look at the film.

So we have a different birth date to search for Harriett now.

I seen that one in the QLD archives. I didnt bother with it as there is a fella named Morgan who travelled on the same ship as her so i just figured husband and wife.
 
Another reason I ruled him out. He was born like all of them in Co Wexford not Co Meath:

RUNCIMAN John, 26, Farm Labourer, Meath, cofeng, r&w

I wonder if he is a cousin or something - or even not related.

That tree is reliable. :) One branch of the family ended up in NZ. Most of those who came to NSW settled initially in Bathurst.
 
We tried before to find Harriett. We have her parents:

Marriages Sep 1855
Beynon Charlotte Merthyr T 11a 486
Morgan Daniel Merthyr T 11a 486


There are deaths in NSW for Daniel and Charlotte MORGANs but I don't know yet if her parents did arrive or not.

Death 2980/1937 RUNCIMAN HARRIETT ANN - DANIEL - CHARLOTTE - WELLINGTON

Cant we claim him anyway? :2fun::2fun::2fun:
Ok might have to find another John for you :biggrin:

The NSW assisted indexes supposedly only go to 1896 so she could have turned up in 1897:rolleyes:
 
I really don't know how one from Meath would fit in, if at all.

Yes, John and his brother Thomas. ;)

I can't find Daniel & Charlotte in 1861 or 1871 census. That may or may not mean they left early for Australia. We'd better check again using the abt 1865 not abt 1859 birth for Harriett.

I can't find a baptism for Harriett.

Oh well. Looks like I had better check all the Daniel and Charlotte deaths in TROVE.

Must have dodged the census man as if he was the tax man :2fun::2fun:

A maybe birth for Harriett?
Births Dec 1866 (>99%)
Morgan Harriett Merthyr T. 11a 345
 
Yes, thanks. That fits. ;)

I'll look for the marriage tomorrow:

2921/1898 RUNCIMAN JOHN W - MORGAN HARRIET - BATHURST
 
Tomorrow did come :biggrin: and I didn't find the marriage.

So we are back to this:

Marriages Sep Qtr 1855 - Merthyr T 11a 486
Beynon Charlotte & Morgan Daniel

Births Dec Qtr 1866
Morgan Harriett Merthyr T. 11a 345

and no sign of the family in 1861 or 1871 census.
