Hello trace,

I have found this one but I'm not sure if it's the Robert I'm after:

It's not Sarah E. but could be this one - Edith Mary / Mary Edith:

Father is Robert but age is out so not my Robert.

Where is he in 1871 and 1881 and should I be looking for a Robert DUNLOP marriage? :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

So it's possible Robert junior was not in UK in 1871 and 1881.

Born Irvine, Ayr abt 1853 - parents Robert & Mary but possibly not Mary DUNLOP.

Obituary says he arrived in NSW in 1895. I wonder if that arrival can be found - Gilies/Gillies.

GILLIES Unknown M 1895 London Australia Sydney VIEW VIEW
GILLIES Unknown F 1895 London Australia Sydney VIEW VIEW
GILLIES Child Unknown M 1895 London Australia Sydney VIEW VIEW
GILLIES Child Unknown M 1895 London Australia Sydney VIEW VIEW
GILLIES Child Unknown F 1895 London Australia Sydney VIEW VIEW
GILLIES Christina S 1865 F 1895 Liverpool Australia Sydney VIEW VIEW


Children should be Ronald, Frank, Kenneth and Annie and possibly Robert. ???

I might even be in luck:

a Robert Gillies b. 1855 Irvine, Ayr

I'll pay for a copy of that one with the extra info on it. :)

birth date: 26 Mar 1855
birthplace: IRVINE,AYR,SCOTLAND
death date:

source film number: 6035516

Death reg says parents should be Robert & Mary. ???

I've seen nothing to indicate the Robert who married Sarah Ellen YOUNG had a middle name of Young.

Obituary says born Irvine, Ayr and age at death in 1934 was 80. Not enough yet to say for sure it's the right one. The death reg has to be wrong and the tree has to be wrong with Mary DUNLOP for it to fit. And no use of the middle name in life. Enough doubt.
