Birth 2068/1878 STIMSON STEWART REID - JOSEPH - BARBARA - SYDNEY * 7 Jul 1878

All other records have Stuart which is what you would expect his mother being Barbara Stuart REID.

Barbara's parents but no Stuart there.

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

Hi Dave,seeing that Stuart came to Western Australia in 1908 they would not have correct data in Sydney and the persons that wrote that bit of history did not know him.Stuart Reid Stimson is correct. Bit of a history lesson there I turns out that the Reid family fought on the side of the Stuarts Bonnie Prince Charlie and that.I was told by a Nun the reasoning was that they would get fed just like in ITALY with Mussolini these people were on the low end of the food chain and the armies fed the...crazy thinking.

Hi Dave Ham, I have checked the little card The spelling is Stewart I agree with you there but Reid is spelled correctly there.
If you look closer the dot of theletter i looks like a bit of a dirt spot the early digital copiers were accurate but sensed dirt marks So Im of the opinion that REED is incorrect and should be REID. I have been correcting TROVE spelling for while mainly the Newspapers that my grandfather Fred Gates was involved with from 1900 to his death in 1944 He was Newspaper man and Edited a number of papers here in PERTH W.A.
Regards,Ian

Thanks Ian. I've done some correcting in Trove as well.

Stewart Reid on the NSW index entry and Reed on the transcription of the shipping record.
