Hi. I'm new to this forum, but I think we have common ancestors in this Morrison line.
I think it maybe 'Saltcoats' Ayrshire. Where Malcolm was born.

This is a link I've been trying to find for some time now - how & when the family arrived in Australia?

Thanks Dave. :)

I think we may have a different Malcolm Morrison, yet the date & place you have for Malcolm & Mary's marriage & your other posts (James & Emily MORRISON) & some of their children match my family records.

I'm a direct descendant of Hector Morrison (NSW Birth cert 1865/1879), who was this Malcolm & Mary's (nee Kaye) 5th son.
Hector was the youngest brother to James (NSW birth Cert 1377/1876 + NSW Death Cert. 17951/1956) - where your connection comes in, & his twin, John (NSW birth Cert 1376/1876).

My family all said they were in the 'iron' trades, hence this family (below) seems a better fit for Malcolm's.

1851 Census
Piece: SCT1851/644 Place: Gorbals -Lanarkshire Enumeration District: 25
Civil Parish: Hutchesontown Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: Hutchesontown
Folio: 610 Page: 17 Schedule: 60
Address: 53 Commercial Road
MORRISON Hector, Head, M, M, 48, Private Watchman ,Ayrshire - Saltcoats
MORRISON Margaret, Wife, M, F, 46, , .Ayrshire - Saltcoats
MORRISON Hugh, Son, U, M, 22, Blacksmith (Apprentice), Ayrshire - Saltcoats
MORRISON Malcolm, Son, U, M, 20, Iron Turner (Apprentice), Ayrshire - Saltcoats
MORRISON Susan, Dau, U, F, 14, Silk Winder, Ayrshire - Saltcoats


Further, I have a few scanned photographs of Hector, his family & whom I can only assume are his sibling's families.
One maybe his parents, Malcolm & Mary & what appears to be a 1925 Besst tourer, of which there were only 6 made (http://www.autopuzzles.com/cfeature33.htm).
There is another image of Hector in the drivers seat of the same vehicle with 2 males & 5 females (my grandmother - Hector's daughter, being one of them), standing next to the car.

This would also fit in with 'iron' trades, as they often moved into the auto industries.

Do you (or anyone) have someone I can send these images to, who could help me identify the people in them?

Thanks again.
Paul

Hello Paul,

You have more info on the family than I have so it's possible I have the wrong family in the census.

I know of no one who would be able to identify any of the people in the photos.

I will have another look at the family with the help of other members on this site and see if we can sort things out.

Dave
