Arthur Gideon Scott


From on Thursday, 23 June, 2011

Hello Elizabeth,
I found your websites through researching my Hayes family and the Tetbury connection. My Hayes ancestors were on the Collins expedition which briefly settled at Sorrento before moving to Hobart in 1803. I think they might have come from Tetbury but haven't been able to link them there from the earliest information I have (marriage of Thomas Hayes to Barabara Hayes in St Sepulchre, Holborn by licence on 26 Sep 1762).
However, the reason for writing to you is that I am related to Robert Scott, spouse of Alice Elizabeth Farrar in your tree. I thought you might be interested in some more information about Robert.
Robert Scott - b 20 Oct 1856, North Melbourne, Victoria; m Alice Elizabeth Farrar 1880 in Melbourne, Victoria; d 19 Jul 1921, Essendon, Victoria
father Arthur Gideon Scott - b abt 1824 Scalloway, Shetland; m Margaret Grant 23 Mar 1853 in Geelong, Victoria; d 1862 in Oakleigh, Victoria
mother Margaret Grant - b 1834, Lairg Sutherland Scotland; d 1895 Ballarat, Victoria
I think that Arthur Gideon Scott arrived on the Lady Kennaway in 1838 as a 14 year old stable boy, with his mother a midwife, but have not been able to confirm this is the right arrival record for him. I have found him on a census at Royal Park in Victoria in 1856 and after that as a butcher in Flemington until he became insolvent and ended up droving. In 1867 he was found dead in Oakleigh with his horse nearby and there was an inquest into his death. According to his wife, he had been quite unwell before he set out.
Margaret Grant arrived on 15 Sep 1852 on the ship Europa with her parents, 10 siblings, a sister in law, a niece and nephew. Her father was a shepherd and worked on the Golf Hill station near Shelford.
Other children of Margaret Grant and Arthur Gideon Scott -
James Charles Scott b 1854 in Melbourne, Victoria; m Helen Dow McCartney in 1887; d 1923 in Ballarat, Victoria
Arthur Scott b 1859 in Flemington, Victoria; d 21 Dec 1923 in Bendigo, Victoria (haven't found a marriage for him)
Elizabeth Scott b 1862 in Flemington, Victoria; m Herbert Archibald Lockett in 1885; d 1937 in Ballarat, Victoria
John George Scott b 1865 in Flemington, Victoria; m Victoria Julia Briant 1893; d 1920 in Brunswick, Victoria
John George Scott was my great grandfather.
I have other information about these families which I am happy to share. If you are interested, please let me know.
Regards,
Lynn Davies

David and Helen Scott

David Scott c1804 came from Scotland in 1853 with two sons and his wife Helen and the younger family arrived in Port Phillip September 1854 per the Oracle and joined David who was a baker in Bendigo. His son James Alfred Scott was a baker in Bridgewater and was the father of Isabella (Bella) Scott
Son James Alfred Scott

1. Isabelle (Bella) Scott 1872 - 2 Dec 1899, wed 13 Mar 1895 to David Russell Arnold 21 May 1845 - 25 Nov 1917, widower with 8 living children, whose first wife died following the birth of their ninth child, who also died.

On 24 July 2001 I received the following details from a very kind researcher -
I have just received the death certificate of Bella ARNOLD (SCOTT). The death is registered in the name of Elizabeth Isabella ARNOLD - 2nd December, 1899 - cause of death Emphysema, Influenza and Tuberculosis, she had no children of her own.
Isabella Helen SCOTT was born on 29th July, 1871 Wambangalang Station, near Dubbo NSW, the eldest of 12 children, her parents James Alfred and Sarah SCOTT.

The date of arrival into Australia of some members of the SCOTT family, from Scotland via Liverpool, England, is a bit uncertain. In 1853 her grandfather David SCOTT (49) with sons David (18) and James Alfred (11) arrived in Bendigo, but to date I've not been able to locate the passenger record, however, his wife Helen SCOTT (40) with the younger children Walter (8) William (6) & Margaret (infant) arrived in Port Phillip September 1854 per the "Oracle" along with another SCOTT family, head of that family also named David (46) his wife Elizabeth (38) & their children. (related somewhere along the SCOTT line)
Our David SCOTT owned several properties in Bendigo, including his house & bakery located in Bridge St
Some time before 1868 James Alfred SCOTT (Isabella's father) went to NSW, there is no record of a marriage to wife Sarah, they lived around the Dubbo area for many years and had 7 of their children, about 1883 James Alfred & family returned to Bendigo and resided in Bridgewater, several more children are born and some died.
The older SCOTT's David & Helen (Ellen) died 1892 & 1893. Isabella married David Russell ARNOLD in 1895 - then about 1896 the whole SCOTT family left Victoria and went to live in Western Australia, leaving Bella alone with her new family.
There are many gaps to fill regarding the SCOTT family and hopefully when I next visit Bendigo I'll be able to piece together the puzzle.
Do you know of any photographs of Bella or places that she lived?
Hope this information is of interest to you, if you discover any new information regard her or her family please let me know.
