Yes - William JC Humbley & nes Nisbet are my g or gg grandparents.
My father was Hector Mc. Donald Humbley. His father was a William (Sydney?) Humbley - I think the son, but maybe the grandson of these people.
I could point you to those that know more if that is what you seek.

My son stumbled upon the site, which is wonderful by the way, and sent me the link. My husband knows little to nothing about his family history and I hope to return here and see if I can dig anything up. Its really interesting to see the background on the family name and I'd love for my 3 sons to know more about the Nesbitt side of their heritage. (I'll be back)

      The newsletter has been successfully received. Thanks to David Nesbitt from Northern Ireland for the Ulster Covenant site. We enjoyed searching and finding the signatures of a Grandparent and Uncle.

The website looks good! I am from the Nisbet/Spry line of family from Ceduna/Thevenard Sth Australia. The older members of the family are dwindling with the sad passing of Uncle John Nisbet of Thevenard in December. Uncle Colin Nisbet in Adelaide and Auntie Wilma Ward being the last remaining siblings from John Grant Nisbet and Amy Lurline Spry. My father was Robert Nisbet, brother of Alan, John, Colin and Wilma. I guess its about time I joined the society, I've requested application forms twice in the past and never got around filling them out and sending payment. There's a good new years resolution for you.

Just thought I'd let you Aussie Nesbitt/Nisbet's know of a site I found. It is it has a copy of all those who signed the Ulster covenant in 1912 and you can see the actual signatures of your kin (and it is free) check it out

Attention Nesbitts all over the world!
My Grandmother brought me up after my mother died, and she fascinated me with stories of her family, The Nesbitts. My great Grandfather was Harry Frank Nesbitt, born in 1853 in London, and his parents were Anthony Charles and Mary Anne. Apparantly they were both Nesbitt, as they were first cousins. His brother was also Anthony, but he died in London without marrying, or children. Harry Frank and his brother Anthony were both baptised in London. Harry Frank was a Ships Captain, and came to Australia, and gave up the sea to marry Catherine Moy, an Irish girl, in Newcastle in January 1878. They had 12 children, 6 boys and 6 girls. My Grandmother, Edith, was the 5th girl, and 11th child.   Now, with all that information, you would imagine that I would have no problem tracing my Nesbitt Family, but no, it seems that my Great Great Grandparents, Anthony, and Mary Anne Nesbitt, like Topsy, just grew! Can find no further back than them. And, apart from the descendants of 2 of my Great Aunts, none of the sons of Harry Frank Nesbitt, and Catherine, carried on the line, and just disappeared, although my Grandmother said that one of her brothers had twins.
Can anyone help me in my search????
