In Reply to: Houston family Port Lincoln by Murray Tonkin of 2436

Hi Murray
I'm in Adelaide and for about 8 years now I've been doing free research in the Mortlock Library for anyone around the world who wants information re ancestors who came here, and information from our library records. I had a look yesterday for your "Houston" family and the following is what I managed to find. As there were no Christian names given, I have just worked on the area of Port Lincoln etc. I'm hoping I have sent the right information.

CHILDREN BORN TO HENRY ALEC HOUSTEN & MAGGIE nee DEWAR.

1. Stella Katie dewar born 27/1/1901 Port Lincoln Dis. Flinders. ref b671 p206

CHILDREN BORN TO HENRY HOUSTON & MARY nee GANNING.

1. Hugh Kennedy 27/10/72 Port Lincoln Dis. Fli. b116 p239

2. Margaret Grace 8/11/74 Port Lincoln Dis. Fli. b143 p367

3. Samuel 20/10/70 Port Lincoln Dis. Flinders ref b89 p175

4. Thomas 28/4/62 Port Lincoln Dis. Fli. b24 p399 (mother's surname spelt Ganon on the birth record)

5. John Clark 29/10/79 near Warrow Dis. Fli. ref b231 p93

6. Jane 7/7/64 Duck Ponds Dis. Fli. ref b32 p57

7. Henry Alexander 14/10/68 Dis. Fli. ref b67 p551 (mother's surname spelt Gurney)

8. Ellen 20/9/77 Warrow Area Dis. Fli. ref b190 p114 (mother's surname spelt Gaming)

9. Alfred Spalding 7/9/81 Warrow Dis. Flindes ref b269 p395

10. catherine Mary 11/6/66 Duck Ponds Dis. Fli. ref b44 p259.

I am including the reference no. to the entries. South Australia is the dearest place to buy birth, death or marriage records. By quoting the nos. I have put at the end of each entry, you would get a discount (I have no idea how much) on a certificate you requested, as the nos. mean the Registry staff don't have to spend hours doing a search. The records here are $27 each.

CHILDREN BORN TO THOMAS HOUSTON & MARY HANNAH WEIR.

1. Percival James 11/3/92 Port Lincoln Dis. Fli. ref b497 p456

2. Everlyne Mary 29/4/94 Warrow Dis. Fli. ref b542 p228


DEATHS.

1. Margaret Grace, aged 3 years of Warrow died 27/7/1877 at Warrow. Daughter of Mary and William Houston Dis. Flindes symbol "S" denoting supplementary information appears on the death record. ref. b82 p112. (This child's birth record records her mother as Mary Ganning)

2. Samuel aged 2 years of Port Lincoln died 21/4/73 at Port Lincoln. Son of Henry Houston Dis. Flinders ref b52 p186.

Our marriage records in S.Aus. go to 1937, and our births to 1906. If you want any information re any of the above for marriages or births, feel free to get back to me. You can email me on my personal email address.

Hope yours is a wonderfully happy New Year.

Regards
Heather
in a very humid summer's day.
