Hi
I've been searching for my partner's Beilby line. I have a Mavis Courtney Beilby by 1900 in Perth. A sister Ruby Ada b. 1905 and 2 brothers Norman Courtney b. 31 July 1902 and James Bindley b. 8 July 1909. Their parents are John James Courtney Beilby and Ellen Ada Bindley. They were married in Perth in 1899.
I belive that John James was born in Victoria and that John James & Ellen moved back to Victoria sometime before WW1.
Mavis married Frederick Arthur Overy. They changed their surname to Avery as Mavis didn't like having a part of the female anatomy as her surname!! They lived and had their family in Albury, NSW and are buried there now. Mavis & Fred are my partners grandparents.
I have been unable to find parents for John James and Ellen or when their respective families immigrated to Victoria. Do any of these names match the Beilby's in your tree?
Thanks
Bronwyn
