About GEORGE MOREHEAD AITKEN, born in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Journal by bunnycuddles

Hi, I have been researching my father's grandparents. His maternal grandfather was GEORGE MOREHEAD AITKEN.

BORN: 23/08/1845, in Hobart Town, Tasmania, Australia.
MARRIED: Gertrude Hannah McNamara on 16th January, 1915, at Waverley, New South Wales, Australia.
DIED: 26/03/1938, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The funeral notice for GEORGE MOREHEAD AITKEN was posted in 'The Sydney Morning Herald' on 28th March, 1938. It reads as follows:

AITKIN,-The Relatives and Friends of Mrs. GEORGE MOREHEAD AITKIN, of Mackay,Queensland, are kindly invited to attend the Funeral of her dearly loved HUSBAND; to leave Our Parlour. 262 Oxford Street, Woollahra, THIS DAY (Monday), at 3.30 p.m., for Waverley Cemetery. CARTER, Undertaker, Waverley.
AITKIN.-The Relatives and Friends of GEORGE, ERNEST, and HARRY AITKIN are kindly in-vited to attend the Funeral of their dearly-loved FATHER, George Morehead Aitkin; to leave Our Parlour, 262 Oxford Street, Woollahra, THIS DAY(Monday), at 3.30 p.m., for Waverley Cemetery. W. CARTER, Undertaker, Waverley.

Their daughter Elsie (my Grandmother) was not mentioned in the Death Notice.
Does anyone have any information about Elsie? She married my Grandfather, Charles Mason-Johnson in 1914. My father said his mother Elsie also travelled a fair bit, as an opera singer.

Hi Bunnycuddles,

I have conducted considerable research into Morehead George Aitkin (also known as George Morehead Aitkin), the same person you mentioned in your enquiry. However I do not know of the name Elsie. Morehead George Aitkin was the son of George Cruikshank Aitkin and all of the family moved between Tasmania, NSW, (Shellharbour and Broken Hill and elsewhere) Brisbane, Maryborough and other parts of Qld.

I will be happy to talk with you about what I know and to share information. There are a few of us researching the Aitkin family (in the early days the spelling was sometimes Aitken) and I wonder if you have come across them along the way. Anyhow I ask if you can reply to me on my offsite email address [email protected] or you can phone me on 0409429726 or 02 9 5257691.

kind regards Vince Aitkin
