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

Cecil P Nesbitt 1900 Thomas, Jane Molong, New South Wales

Herrick S Nesbitt 1903 Thomas, Janie Molong, New South Wales

Horace R Nesbitt 1905 Thomas, Janie Molong, New South Wales

Mervyn A Nesbitt 1908 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.

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.

Elizabeth Nesbitt - from Rockingham Western Australia wrote: a super hurry & just passing through today. I just googled my sons name (he's just about old enough to start getting into mischief) and I saw a summons for descandants of Mr & Mrs John Nesbitt.
It occurs to me that my husband know very little of his ancestry. This is what I am aware of (the private, compressed version anyway):

The patriarch is Basil Nesbitt born in then India (now Pakistan) in the 30's the youngest(?) of a large family. Descended from anglo/indan stock - who went to India to work on British Railways). He had three children (m,f,m) then immegrated to Bristol, England before having two more children (m, m). Later moved the family to Bunbury, Western Australia where they settled.

If anyone has a family tree that has a branch or two in India, I would love to compare notes.

I have also noted that there are an incredible number of baby boys in my branch of the Nesbitt tree...has anyone else noted the same of their family?

I am trying to locate any relatives of my father's father (my grandfather) or any information about him or his lineage.

His name was Horace Rhodes Nesbitt, of Molong, NSW Australia. I beleive his father's name was Thomas Nesbitt, married to Jane Cockram.

I am doing up a family tree and would be delighted to hear from any long lost rellies!
