Hello and welcome to the Forum.


While I'm not the poster of this topic I do have the connected FLETCHER family in my tree via several marriages. I'll check if I have any queries. Depending how far off my main line it is I don't always follow the children of a marriage.

This one has always been a puzzle because it is said David didn't have a brother John:

1878-79 NSW Electoral Roll - The Lachlan
JOHNSTONE David, Grenfell, residence
JOHNSTONE John, Grenfell, residence

This has also puzzled me:

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - CAMPERDOWN - DARLINGTON POLLING-PLACE
758 COWLING Clara, 57 Ivy-street, domestic duties
759 COWLING William, 57 Ivy-street, engine-driver
1876 JOHNSTONE Lewin, 57 Ivy-street, cutter
1881 JOHNSTONE Muriel Constance, 57 Ivy-street, domestic duties
1882 JOHNSTONE Reginald, 57 Ivy-street, tram conductor

1930 NSW Electoral Roll - Werriwa - Woonona
COWLING Clara Elizabeth, Wilga street, Corrimal, home duties

1930 NSW Electoral Roll - Werriwa - Woonona
JOHNSTONE David, Lawrence street, Woonona, miner


2x David JOHNSTONE? coincidence the second one is also in Werriwa - Woonona in 1930. ???

Hi ,
I came across this today. Are you still looking for descendants? I grew up in Sydney and knew Rae Wilkie, née Nutt. She was my mothers best friend from schooldays. I know quite a lot About Roy Nutt. Rae and Howard had three children, Amanda (Mandy) Deborah (Debbie) and Stuart. My brother was recently in contact with Mandy who was born in 1949, like him. If you or anyone is keen to have more information, I will happily provide it. I have photos of Roy Nutt on his cabin cruiser in Sydney harbour, along with son Ken.
Huntress3 from canberra.
Yes we are interested in more information on this family. This has been one of our brick walls in my wife's family.

In relation to Otto Lewin and Ivy Staples, they had two children Arthur and Joy. Arther is my father and he died in 2007. I'm one of four to Arthur Johnstone and Wilma Thompson. Lewin
