Something to ponder for William Jr. until we get more, age would fit..

Thanks Geoff.

Ryde would fit.

No middle name for Frederick to help sort the birth reg.

Possible, but can't see them easily in 1891, there is one but parents are John & Eliza and his occ. is different [also a popular name :)]

We had better for now forget the birth reg and try to find William in 1901. He was a chairmaker in NSW. No middle name here.

Thanks Geoff.

That does not add up unless Elizabeth is 2nd spouse.


This is the one in my tree.

Births Jun 1905
Johnstone Harold W. Derby 8b 383
 
Perhaps Scotland with George McFarlane and Jessie marriage.

Age at death 71 for William so possibly born before 1871 census.
 
If age at death is accurate then I can't find a William in England in 1871 with parents George & Jessie.

I'll resume tomorrow.

Dave
 
I'm thinking Scotland.

Just been looking at that, trying to make sense of this..
