Thanks Emeltee.

Son William and a few others ended up in Queensland. Mother listed as Burke. I still didn't find the marriage.

Some of the children remained in Scotland. Not sure about William senior and Jane.

Can't find a death on SP for a Jane Morrison with other surname = Burt.

Can't find a death in Queensland with father = Burt or similar. Or Hart.

If the name is Hart then still no marriage.

Scottish birth certificates for 1855 and then 1861 onwards normally record where and when the parents married. So if you look up any one of these 4 births on Scotlandspeople it should help you locate the marriage.
 
Thanks Elwyn.

Marriage 1898/C02124 Morrison David - Thompson Florence Alice

1909 QLD Electoral Roll - Herbert - Townsville

Dunno for sure, Geoff.

Miller appears in only some records as a middle name.

OK, thanks..

There is this very flimsy possible for a marriage, since we've nothing else at mo, may be worth a look! [I haven't checked any of this yet]

Marriages Q4 1861
BURT Jane
GILROY Mary
GILRY Mary
KIPLING Samuel
MILLER William
Auckland 10a,194

Wondered if possible that Morrison omitted and Miller taken as surname?

Geoff
 
Thanks Geoff.

Or it is Miller-Morrison and sometimes Miller or sometimes Morrison.

Or William's parents were not married and his mother was Miller.

3x William Morrison born Barony abt 1840 none with mother = Miller
13x William Morrison born Lanark abt 1840 none with mother = Miller
