It is a long time since I last logged into the Nisbet Society, probably a couple of years. A lot has happened since then.

Adrian Home Nisbet - my father - died last Jan 2011, since then, family has been coming out of the wood work, much to my excitment.

Two aunts who I didn't know existed Jennifer and Janet Nisbet, Janet lives in America and Jennifer in Sydney.

Half sister Fiona Nisbet lives in Sydney.

Cousin Ian Scott Stevenson and his wife Teena live in Sydney.

Another half sister Katherine and her brother Alex live in Sydney!!

Long and the short of it is that I am visiting Sydney in February and am meeting all the above family!!!!

What a pity it took my faher's death to bring us all together. I have lived in Australia for the past 33 years and never knew they were there!

My aunt Janet has visited my sister in England for the 1st time last Sept, according to all reports, they loved each other straight off and had a great time catching up.

Will sign into the guestbook with an update after my visit.

I am trying to establish whether the Hohn Nisbet who worked at the Ararat Insane Asylum starting 1874 is related to William Nisbet (from Ayreshire Maucline in Scotland) who farmed in the Ararat area before moving to Deniliquin. William's parents were Robert Nisbet and Harriet Steven, John's parents were George Nisbet and Jacobina Begbie (according to the Victorian death index). He was born circa 1829 and married Catherine Thomson in1854 in Victoria. Does anyone know if there is a link?

Ian - thanks so much for the information about William Nisbet from Manchlin (b. Apr 1837) and his parents. I can trace my Nisbet line back to that early 1800s date, with the help from so many. Am interested in pressing on further now, to find out more about generations before that date. Does anyone have additional info on generations of Nisbets before the marriage of Robert Nisbet to Harriet Steven at Manchlin in the early 1800s? It's quite fascinating! I had heard that some of the Nisbets were sent to Ayrshire by John Nisbet (Lord Dirleton) in the 1600s. Interested to know whether my branch of the family is from this group.

You are correct on the marriage of Thomas and Jane,1890 at Molong.

They had the following children:
Thomas Nesbitt 1891 Thomas, Jane Molong, New South Wales

Grace S Nesbitt 1892 Thomas, Jane Molong, New South Wales

Wallace J Nesbitt 1895 Thomas, Jane Molong, New South Wales

Gerty E Nesbitt 1897 Thomas, Jane Molong, New South Wales

Thomas may have had some relations also as in the 1936 Census for Bathurst a Eric Stanley Nesbitt shares the same address as Horace.

Hope this helps in getting you started.

1861 census Nesbit;
1871 census Naisbett inc Thomas C (Collins) and Walter B (Blake) Naisbett;

Hello. I am a member of the UK branch of the N/Ns & am very pleased to now be a member of the Australian branch as well. My Aussie link began in 1875 when my great great grandfather William David Nisbet arrived in Brisbane from the UK aged 38years to work as a harbour & drainage engineer. He was born in Northumberland as was my great great great grandfather Edward Nesbit.
