Kelso Scotland Missing Brothers MUNRO c1880 -->

PostAuthor: Ronald » Fri Apr 15, 2011 8:44 am

Census 1881, two brothers David Alexander Stevenson and Thomas Murray MUNRO were at Wester Muir Dean, which looks like a farm. Also looks like that two of their sisters were there also at that time. They, the MUNROs, all born at Coldingham Manse, Coldingham, BER. Parents David and Margaret MUNRO; Margaret nee Stevenson.

After this Census, I cannot find any trace of them ..... where did they go????

:aussief
Their Brother Robert Stevenson MUNRO cane out to South Australia c1890.

I am Robert's Great Grandson,

Ronald D MUNRO,
Salisbury,
South Australia.

I found the 1881 census you detail Ron which you obviously have. It says David Alexander was a farmer of n282 ac arable land, employing 6 men, 3 women and 2 boys. Sarah Margaret 15 and Mary Ann Helena 13 are with David and Thomas. I also found David and Margaret on other census up to 1901. David Snr a Minister of religion. I expect that you have these. If not I can send to you.

The only David A I could find was in London 1891 and 1901 - born Scotland 1857 and 1856 respectively - lodging at 94 Bamsbury Road Islington - both census. Occupation - Clek accountants office and Accountant Clerk respectively.

There are military records for Canada for a David Alexander Munro - I would need to got to the National Library to look those up if you are interested. He would have been over 60 though but could have been in the militia. The tree I found on Ancestry was private - DIZZI may have found another one. Looked on Find My past but no obvious records.

I noticed on an Ancestry message board a post from you which where you seemed to think that David A had gone to New Zealand - is that a line for us to follow? I thought I saw somwhere recently that NZ records could be online - Lady Mare is the NZ expert - we could ask her.

The NZ hint I am lead to believe is a family myth.

I have had hints long ago about canada, just that I don't know where to start there for research.

Any help is a help.
