Hi, Do you have anymore information about Rachel Bishop who married James Howie. My Great Great Grandfather was Captain James Howie from Canongate, Edinburugh. He left there to Australia. Now, his wife was named Rachel; though I thought her maiden name was Bishark. It looks like that on the document I have.

Having said that, If the Rachel Bishop up there has siblings among this list, then perhaps Ive not read the writing properly. Lol.

Greetings misshowie67.

Unable to assist you regarding siblings for Rachel BISHOP.

I can only find one child for the James HOWIE and Rachel BISHOP married in Victoria in 1855.

Name: William HOWIE.
Born: 1855 Fryers Creek, Victoria.
Father: James HOWIE.
Mother: Rachel BISHOP.
Ref: Victorian Birth Index #3564.

I noticed in your other journal you have a William HOWIE born 1859 in Victoria to James HOWIE and Rachel BISHOP or BISHARK and expect it will be the same William.
Where did you obtain the birth year of 1859 for William?

Note. The name BISHARK does not appear in any of the early Victorian BDMs.

Hope this is of some help to you.

Thank you very Much for firstly replying, and then for messaging me that you had replied. I wasn't sure quite how to get back to this place. I'll find my way around soon enough. Thank you all the same.

Okay, I have the Marriage Entry for William HOWIE and Elizabeth Annie UNWIN, they were married in 1885, Mount Grey District, NEW ZEALAND ... And his Age at 1885 was written as 26. So 85 less 26, and I arrived at 1859. Also on the entry as his Parents are JAMES HOWIE - Sailor, and RACHEL HOWIE Maiden Name BISHARK. It is very clear, the handwriting I mean.l Even if the K were a P. I had written in "or BISHOP" because a relative of mine has her down as BISHOP.

On the entry it says definitely B I S H A R and either K or P at the end. So perhaps, BISHARP.

It is absolutely some help. Thank you once again for the Good Intentions, and the information. I shall add it to my bag of tricks, that is slowly growing.

It's always possible the name BISHOP may have been recorded wrong in the Victorian or New Zealand records. Variations in the spelling of names can be a problem at times.

Good luck with further searches.

Forgot to ask where James HOWIE and his wife Rachel died?
