John Melville


From on 4 February, 2011
Hi Elizabeth,
John Melville who married Emma Louisa Barrett was my grand uncle and a brother to Francis Jolly Melville, my grandfather.
John and Francis were the sons of Donald and Margaret Melville nee Jolly.
About 2 years ago someone was trying to trace the Melville/Barrett family via ancestry.com. They would not pass my information on unless I paid to join.
John Melville was born c 1841, Aberdeen, Scotland.
He married 24.11.1868, in the house of W (Mr?) Melville, Miller Street, Melbourne. At the time of his marriage he was a bachelor, working as a clerk or a commercial traveller. Emma Louisa Barrett was 18, the daughter of Edward and Esther Jane Barrett (nee Young?). Emma was born in Launceston, Hobart Town, Tasmania. Edward Barrett's rank was sea captain. The marriage was formalised by a Presbyterian Minister, A Robertson. The witnesses were Robert Clark and Eleanor Ann (Barrett?). (Emma's sister and her future brother-in-law)
I have John and Emma Louisa Melville's children as follows:
Albert Edward, b 30.8.1869, Miller Street, North Melbourne.
Emma Louisa, b 23.4.1871. The family is still in Miller Street, Bourke Ward, Melbourne.
Eleanor Alice, b 25.1.1873. They have moved to Hawke Street, Bourke Ward, Melbourne.
Esther Jane, b c1875. May Clark, b c1876. Clark after witness on the marriage certificate? May Melville married Charles Phil Winzer, c1906, Victoria.
Gertrude Maud, b 3.4.1878, at Craigiburn, Shire of Broadmeadows Kalkallo. John Melville is now listed as the Station Master.
Bessie Georgina, b 15.8.1879.
John Henry, b 26.8.1880, Lubeck, Dannukle?, Rupanyup, County Borung. Deceased by 28.12.1881.
Maggie Bruce, b 28.12.1881, Lubeck, County of Borung. Bruce was a Melville family name.
Florence Leslie, b 31.5.1883, Bulla, County of Bourke. Leslie was a Melville family name. John Melville is given as a publican.
Frank Leslie, b 1.9.1884, Bulla, County of Bourke. John Melville is given as an accountant. Frank Leslie Melville m Mabel Blinkhorn.
Emily Victoria, b 22.101888, 24 Shield Street, Hotham, County of Bourke. John Melville given as clerk.
Hilda Jean, b 16.11.1889, (Barkly?) Street, Brunswick, County of Bourke.
Donald Jackson, b 17.5.1891, Brunswick Road, Brunswick, County of Bourke. John Melville is still given as an accountant.
I don't think all my branch of the family travelled together. The "Oliver Lang" arrived in September 1854.
Melville, Mrs. 45, Margaret Melville nee Jolly. Melville, A. 2. Andrew Wood. I don't know the connection with the Wood family. Melville, D. 45. Donald Melville. Melville, F. 5. Francis Jolly. Melville, M. 20. Margaret.
It is possible that the John Melville, age 13, who travelled on the "Candace" and arrived September 1854, is the one who married Emma Louisa Barrett
The Oliver Lang, ship, 1275 tons, Captain H Manning , left Liverpool 29 June and arrived at Melbourne 23 Sep 1854. Passengers cabin - Mr and Mrs GWF Grylls, Mr, Mrs and Miss Day, Mr and Mrs Holt, Mr and Mrs Newton, Mr Lane, Mr Bretherton, and 4 84 in the intermediate and steerage - Willis, Merry and Co, Agents.
The Oliver Lang brings no cargo
The theatrical world will learn with pleasure that Mr and Mrs Clarence Holt, from the Royal Olympic Theatre, London, have come out in the Oliver Lang, for the purpose of following their profession in these colonies. The whole of the passengers, reaching nearly 500 souls, have enjoyed remarkable good health, and not a single death occurred during the passage.
On 27 Sep the Oliver Lang departed for Sydney, towed by steam
Candace arrived 13 Sep, from Aberdeen 12 May, 14 passengers, Porter Buchanan and Co Agents. is in Hobson's Bay 16 Sep 1854
27 Sep, Advertisement - Barque Candace, from Aberdeen, and the Lighter Harmony, will discharge Cargo on the Queens Wharf this day, freight must be paid, and all bills of lading entered by the undersigned, before delivery of goods. Porter, Buchanan and Co,
Candace departed 16 Oct, barque, 403 tons, Captain Alexander Watson master, for Callao
