I am wondering if anyone can help me get further back down my line. I am currently only able to find as far back as follows.

Muir William Nisbet
Son of George and Williamina (unsure of spelling)
Born in Auchinleck, Ayrshire, Scotland 1921

Brother Tom (wife Mary)
Sister Rena

This is my Great Grandfather and most of this information is from my Grandmothers memory.

I am trying to trace it back to my last ancestor that held Heraldric Arms to figure out where I should start with my own.

If this is of any help to your valuable work :
I read your lines answering "Colin", about Peter Malcolm and Majorie Ada Nisbet (born Rowe) from Collinsville (Queensland). They were my in-laws.
I have been married for ten to their only son Bruce Wallace Nisbet, an eminent geologist (Equinox) who died 10 May 2006. He had then remarried and had a daughter, Gemma who, I think, lives in Perth (WA).

Bruce W. was born in Collinsville 17th May 1943.

Peter M. Nisbet did not have any brother in Collinsville but a sister who married and lived in Melbourne. Unfortunately, I do not remember her name.

Hi Tim
Is the Peter C Nisbet you referred to Peter Currie Nisbet?

There is a Peter Currie McEachran Nisbet listed in the Electoral Roles for c 1936/37 Randwick, NSW. records that he married Isabel M E Newman in Deniliquin in 1891. It also records that he died 1940 at Redfern NSW and that his parents were William and Christina Nisbet.

There is a strong connection with a Nisbet family and Deniliquin and Peter C Nisbet maybe from that family.

You do not mention the names of the brothers. Do you know any more facts about your Peter C Nisbet?

Hi Stella

Robert Nisbet married Marion McGowan on 14 December 1877 as stated on Roberts birth certificate of 18 February 1878. The 1891 census records that Robert and Marion have four children, Robert, John, Flora and Marion. Robert snr gives his birth place as Dunbartonshire and that he was born c1853.

Robert and Marion marriage certificate records that Marion is the daughter of John McGowan and Flora [ms McDonald] McGowan. For Robert only his mother is listed; Elizabeth Nisbet.   However one of the witnesses is Margaret Fairlie. This is interesting as the 1901 census has Robert[1878], Flora[1883] and Marion[1889] living with Elizabeth Fairlie, age 69 years, as the head of the house. Her birth place is given as Ireland The relationship to the three Nisbet children is given as grandparent. Checking on death of Robert Nisbet, he died in 1893 aged 40 years. His mother is listed as Elizabeth Nisbet or Fairley. Marion Nisbet, widow, is the informant.

I cannot find a birth listing in Scotland for Robert and this leads me to think that Robert was born to Elizabeth Fairlie and maybe the fathers surname was Nisbet. Official registration of births did not start until 1855. I cannot find a Robert Nisbet or Robert Fairlie in the OPR births.

John[1880] died in 1899.

Hope this helps.
