Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

Barbara Stewart/Stuart b. 12 Mar 1851 Paisley High, Renfrew according to one source.

Father: James Reid b. Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland
Mother: Janet Cuthbertson b. 13 Jan 1811 High Church Paisley, Renfrew

I think I'd better have a look in SP for Barbara's birth. As usual, I don't know if she came to Australia alone or when she arrived.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 29 December 1934
DIAMOND WEDDINGS
STIMSON-REID -December 30 1874, at the residence of the bride's parents, Forest Lodge, by J.J. Haley Church of Christ, Joseph, eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Stimson, Fairfield to Barbara Stuart, fourth daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Reid. Present address 7 Kardinia road, Clifton Gardens. At home Monday 31st, Tuesday 1st.

:D :D Perhaps I should not just read the article but understand it too :D :D

at the residence of the bride's parents

The middle name of their 1st son is Pammenter (father's mother). The middle name of their 2nd son is Cuthbertson. And the 3rd son was named Stewart Reid. :)

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. You are about 10 km ahead of me. :2fun:
I was checking IGI but didn't find any of the children. I didn't know Barbara had siblings until you posted the census listing. Yes, it looks like Robert Cuthbertson REID. So we know at least James, spouse Janet, Robert and Barbara arrived before that marriage. I still can't find them in shipping records.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Yes, but I think it's another one we won't find. I've checked Qld., NSW & Vic. for REID/REED/READ.

Regards,

Dave
