I last signed into the Guestbook in May 1999 when living in Taipei, R.O.C., Taiwan. I have now returned to Australia (via assignments in Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia). I have just re-applied for membership because of the many addresses (both email and home)I have had over the past six years.

I am a woodcarver. I logged on to site to get greater detail of the Coat-Of-Arms of Robert Chancellor Nesbitt which I am working on at the moment.

I am aware that this is not the Nesbitt family Coat-of Arms but belongs to that individual. I always acknowledge this fact when displaying or exhibiting carvings in this category. I have carved the badge many times and given them as gifts to family members. I gather the badge with a motto of either "I byde it" or "A Nisbet a Nisbet" is OK for "general consumption".

Any other family members out there that have had a go at carving arms? Any clues on how to get the boar right? They always seem to come out looking like a cross between a dragon and a Scottish Terrier for me. There are always five or six boars on each piece. It is very hard to get them looking the same. I will keep at it!

Just like to say hello to all the Nisbetts down under. There aren't too many of us in Essex, it would be nice to hear from any distant Nisbett cousins out there in Australia or anywhere infact.

Love Tracey x

I just ran across your N/N site a few minutes ago, and of course very interesting.
My Father was Charles Frederick Nisbet, born in South Shields, England. His Mother was a Knox supposedly directly related to John Knox, who started the Presbyterian Religion. My Father had a brother who went to Australia in the late 1800's. ? . .
If anyone is interested something about me can be found by searching: [the sai chow doo house by earl nisbet].

Ian Herbert - from North East Victoria wrote:
My great grandfather Robert Herbert came to the Ovens valley and Bright, Victoria from Canada in 1852 on the 'Revenue'. Acompanying him were a James and Isabella (nee Craigs) Nesbitt. I am curious as to where they went and whether they had any family. Am also in receipt of an email of a relative trying to trace them via a Robert Herbert descendant.

Robert was 20 when he left New Brunswick, Canada. His parents went there from Northumberland, Eng in 1837 when he was 9. The Nesbitts and the Craigs were among the families that immigrated with the Herberts from Northumberland and Southern Scotland. I have details of this immigration and the settlement.
