Death 3 Mar 1940/C0866 Diamond Robert Alexander - Thomas - Robina Tullis

The death of Mr. Robert Alexander Diamond occurred in Maryborough on Monday. He was in his 80th year, and has his name very closely linked with the development of Maryborough. Born in Scotland in 1860, Mr. Diamond sailed for Australia 32 years later. ...

No marriage for a Thomas Diamond to a Robina Tullis.

No death in SP for a Robina Diamond/ Dimond

I wonder if born Scotland is correct. Can't find arrival to Qld. 1891 - 1896.

Robert in 1871, 1881 and 1891 thanks.

Dave

No birth for Jessie in NSW index and Qld. index is still giving me no birth hits.

There is a Robert Diamond born 1860 Glasgow living with Peter Grant and Margaret Grant 18 Willowbank Street, Barony, Milton in 1871 as nephew.
Margaret born Islay, Argyllshire. Peter Grant married Margaret Diamond 1866 Clyde. Robert still with them in 1881 but can't track him down in 1861 as yet. Will try and find Margaret pre marriage
This Robert not on SP. Perhaps illegitimate and born under a diff name. Will keep digging.

Thanks Barbara.

After finding very little I started to wonder if it was Scotland and if parents on death reg were correct.

Great work Barbara.

I had not thought along those lines. I was thinking errors and then possibly Ireland.

Robert AlexanderLast name TullisGender MaleBirth year 1860Birth place Clyde,Glasgow,Lanark,ScotlandBaptism year -Baptism date -Baptism place -Father's first name(s) -Father's last name -Mother's first name(s) RobinaMother's last name TullisPlace GlasgowCounty LanarkshireCountry ScotlandRecord set Scotland Births & Baptisms 1564-1950

Jessie Forbes (Margaret's mother in the 1861) was married to John Diamond. They had a Thomas in 1837 at Bowmore or Kilarrow, Argyllshire. Looks like Thomas had an illegitimate child with Robina Tulles and Robert was telling the truth all along. You will need to get birth certificate to be 100% but looks plausible that Robert lived with his granny and then his aunt.

Yes saw a few Irish Diamonds and was thinking the same as they can be so difficult to follow. I do like these lateral thinking puzzles best

Possible Elizabeth could be another child from Jessie and John Diamond making Robert and Jessie cousins. Do you have the names of Jessie's siblings born before her?
