A birth in Brisbane:

6 Nov 1867/B07756 Wylie Margaret Brisbane - James - Mary Newland Malcolm

All born Largs, Ayr:

James b. Nov 1824
Mary b. Mar 1830
Mary b. abt 1853
James M. b. abt 1858

therefore the family arrived in Australia 1861 - 6 Nov 1867 ???

Several other WYLIE and WYLLIE families on Qld. Archives.

Thanks gibbo.

You beat me by about 10 min. :2fun:

I've just finished getting the exact dates of marriages and deaths off BMD for the family and was heading to burials.

I have Margaret's marriage but not Janet's. Actually, I don't have Janet yet in the tree. She must be the youngest daughter.


Marriage 8 May 1889/B13288 Ord David - Wylie Margaret Brisbane

Well, that is curious. No birth in Qld. BMD for a Janet Lade.

Marriage 1882/C0284 Wylie Janet Lade - Watson William

Well, one explanation is that she was born in Scotland and should be added to those on the vessel.

Of course it would have her age at death as unknown.

I can't find the birth as Janet in Scotland either. There is a Jane born in 1862. But no middle name.

No reg for this one. I did a search using w* and date of Apr 1873 and nothing like WYLIE.

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Wednesday 16 April 1873 p.1
BIRTHS
WYLIE.-On the 2nd April, at George-street, Brisbane, Queensland, Mrs. James Wylie, of a daughter.

That can't be Janet Lade because she married in 1882. Therefore Janet born 1861-1865 but where?

So there is one more daughter to trace.

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Monday 19 June 1882 p.1
MARRIAGE
WATSON-WYLIE.-On the 3rd June, at Cooktown, Queensland, by the Rev. Mr. Hoskins, William, third son of Mr. John Watson, of Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland, to Janet Lade, second daughter of Mr. James Wylie, of Brisbane, and formerly of Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland.

So that means 1861 - 1867 but where? No sign on Qld. BMD or newspaper notice and can't find on SP so on board the vessel. :confused:

I wonder if those families arrived together. Too much of a coincidence that they are both from Largs and marry in Cooktown. That's possibly even where they landed.

Hi, just stumbled on this thread while searching for "Wylies Siding" where my parents used to live on a cane farm in the 1940s. It is located in the Mena Creek and Japoonvale area, south of Innisfail, Queensland, and . My father apparently bought the farm from someone called Wylie, but I don't have his first name.

Wylie's Siding on the South Johnstone Tramway, carry the name of an early supplier to the South Johnstone mill, near Innisfail (Townsville Daily Bulletin of 25 March 1948, page 4, at http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/63058081, an article called "Story of names" by 'Bartle Frere').

One of my results was
http://www.adoptadigger.org/find-a-digger/article/1-diggers-database/1790-wylie-wallace-frederick

Wallace Frederick WYLIE, Private, 9th Battalion, 17th Reinforcement. He was born in IIkley, near Brisbane on 11th April 1895. The son of James Malcolm and Isabella Wylie.
He enlisted on 9th October 1915 in Townsville and embarked from Sydney, NSW on board HMAT SS Hawkes Bay on 20th April 1916.
He was sent overseas to England then France. He was detached from the 9th Battalion to the First Australian Division of Engineers. He served France and then rejoined the 9th Battalion before being transferred to the 69th Battalion.
He returned to Australia via New Zealand on the SS Pakeha and returned to Australia 27th August 1917. He became a labourer and lived in Wylie's Siding, Japoon, Innisfail, Atherton and Herberton.
Wallace never married and died on 25th March 1980 in Herberton, Queensland at the age of 84.

Hello Jean and welcome to FHUK


Thank you for the additional info.

I'm still trying to find when Isabella arrived in Australia. Both from Ayr and married in Queensland and it seems they didn't arrive on the same vessel.

Regards,

Dave
