THOMAS CRAIG

Surname Firstname Events Age Vessel Year Reel
CRAIG Thomas   8 Beejapore 1853 2136, 2464
             

COULD THIS BE GREAT GRANDFATHER

OR THIS BE HIS FATHER ?

CRAIG Thomas   31   Abyssinian 1859 2139, 2479

Family at this time says Thomas came here from SCOTLAND so its more likely to be the 8 year old boy. if so this is a site mentioning BEEJAPORE http://www.users.bigpond.com/kevinreed/pafg152.htm

The only other Thomas Craig seemingly coming in is

CRAIG Thomas 31     Kapunda 1877 2140, 2488

which would mean a VERY RAPID marriage to Martha on the Mcleay ?

 

3301/1877 CRAIG THOMAS MARRIES JULIAN MARTHA MACLEAY RIVER

 

THEN AGAIN MY BROTHER JON LISTS THOMAS AS BEING BORN IN 1858 SO HE SEEMS TO BE NONE OF THESE ONES. AND THIS IS SURELY HIS DEATH DETAILS BECAUSE THE DATE AND PLACE ARE IN THE CRAIG FAMILY BIBLE WHICH MY SISTER SUSAN HAS

6411/1916 CRAIG THOMAS father – WILLIAM mother – MARGARET died -KEMPSEY  

 

Looks like it IS the little boy THOMAS CRAIG on the BEEJAPORE because WILLIAM CRAIG also sailed on that ship in 1853 with his family.

CRAIG William   30 and family Beejapore 1853 2136, 2464

yep reckon thats the craigs .

CRAIG Margaret   34 and family Beejapore 1853 2136, 2464  
CRAIG Margaret   5 and family Beejapore 1853 2136, 2464

 

CRAIG Jane   3 and family Beejapore 1853 2136, 2464

 

CRAIG Sarah   12 and family Beejapore 1853 2136, 2464

That looks like the little Craig family which came to live in Kinchela. WILLIAM and MARGARET CRAIG with

SARAH – 12

THOMAS – 8

MARGARET – 5

JANE – 3

_________________________________________________________________

NOW THIS COULD BE ROUGH ON A FIRST DRAFT BUT IT APPEARS THAT

  • SARAH MARRIES ? DID SHE MARRY AT 17 TO ALEXANDER AND THEN TO WILLIAM COOPER AS AN OLDER WOMAN ?
  • 2157/1858 MARRIAGE OF CRAIG ALEXANDER TO CRAIG SARAH MACLEAY RIVER WHEN SHE WAS 17

    AND ONLY IN COLONY SINCE 1853?

  • 1020/1908 COOPER WILLIAM CRAIG SARAH BELLINGEN

 

  • 10599/1903 CRAIG ALEXANDER FATHER -ALEXANDER MOTHER -JANE DIES IN MACKSVILLE  
  • 12414/1913 COOPER SARAH FATHER- WILLIAM MOTHER- MARGARET DIES IN MACKSVILLE IN 1913.

BEAR WITH ME ON THIS.

One thought on “THOMAS CRAIG”

  1. I am descended from Thomas Craig’s youngest sister, Jane, who married John George WRIGHT in Bega on 29 May 1869. Is there anything in the Craig Family bible your sister has about Jane? She died in Bega on 7 April 1911.

    I also have some ancestry details of their parents William and Margaret nee ARNIEL.

    I am not able to confirm the details you have in the first draft. I noticed a question on whether George H CRAIG, born in 1853, was a sibling. I do not know – his father is recorded as William W CRAIG and I do not think Thomas’ father had a second name.
