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?
