Andrew Addison wed Isabella Lawson Lawson

From on Tue, 8 Mar 2005

Strange how things all seem to come at once with this research - I have never been able to find a record of the marriage of Andrew Addison & Isabella Lawson although 5th Sept 1858 at Ararat Victoria is on one of the children's Birth Certificates.
Today I received my copy of the AIGS magazine "The Genealogist" and imagine my surprise to discover an article about unregistered marriages. Apparently Rev Roberts set up a church without approval of the Church of England and caused much controversy and correspondence "a sensation in the Ararat press" and listed are four couples whom he married, one of which was Andrew Addison and Isabella Lawson!

Regards
Jan Cross

Mark Stark and Janet Robinson Addison

From on Saturday, 6 November, 2010

Hi Elizabeth
I am writing to add and correct information you have regarding Andrew Addison
James Addison 1859 #1859 may be one of the 14 children of Andrew Addison but he is not the same James Addison as the man who wed Margaret Jane Johnson
This James Addison is as follows
I believe he was born in 1854 as I have a copy of his marriage certificate and he was 28 when married to Margaret Jane Johnston (#6596) on the 4th Dec 1882. He was the son of Mark Stark Addison and Janet Robinson who were married in Glasgow on 3rd Sep 1852 and sailed for Melbourne on the 11th Sep 1852 on the Sir William Molesworth. The Latrobe library has the diary of the voyage written by Mark Addison
Also Margret Jane Johnstonís parents were Dickson and Helen Johnston (nee Harper)
The children appear correct although I only have direct knowledge of James Russell Addison 1884 #3951 who was my great grandfather. I have not been able to find birth, marriage or death certificates for the other 3 children
Hope you donít mind me sending this information. Regards, Bruce Addison
