Hi, No parents were Patrick and Janet. I've since discovered that Andrew died age 12. Still looking for any info re John and Alex.

Thanks

I know this is not what you are looking for but there is a Patrick Maxwell aged 7 months in the Scottish 1901 census. He is in the "Fever Hospital, 68 North Oswald Street, Glasgow, could it be another brother? When was your father born?

Sorry for delay. SilverVixen you are a star. Yes the oldest brother Patrick was born 13/7/1900. I had a copy of the 1901 census showing Patrick and Janet as "patients" but the page did not show of what or where exactly. I also took the Patrick to be Patrick senior. Having looked at it again you are right Patrick is shown as being 7/12 or 7 months !! Good news is both Patrick and his mum Janet survived. Patrick eventually emigrated to Australia around 1960 with his wife Elizabeth Emma and children. I don't know where in Australia he moved to - so if anyone knows ...... help please.

My dad George was born on 31/8/1902 and died 11/1/1973 in Glasgow.

Janilye I can't thank you enough for finding my uncle and aunt. Yes this is them. I remember as a child (I would be about 12) my dad and uncle Paddy making wooden crates in which their furniture and belongings would travel onboard ship to Australia. They had a son Patrick Philip and there were two young women Lorraine and Loretta. I'm not sure if they were both daughters or if one was married to Philip. Any chance you can find them please. Thanks again so very much.

I've found Patrick Philip, you might have to do a bit of letter writing.
In 1972 Patrick Philip Maxwell was living at 75 Juliette Street Annerley, Brisbane, Queensland his occupation given as wood machinist with him in the house was Gail Valerie no other occupants.
In 1977 Patrick Philip Maxwell, together with Gail Valerie are living at 16 Bruce Street Woodbridge Queensland, on this roll he gives his occupation as Carpenter.
The same address again in 1980. The house had no other occupants. However I did expect to find possible children on this roll. There were 18 Maxwell's in all on this roll and I would be guessing as to relationships. However one struck me as a possible and only because of the name; Colin Philip Maxwell, 2 Nanda Street, Woodbridge Occupation, Process Worker, residing with Gillian Elizabeth, home duties.
Online search of the rolls is up to 1980. All current Rolls may only be viewed at Australian Electoral Offices, Australia wide. Perhaps a member of Familytreecircles can help you with that. Of course if I happen to be in the city sometime soon I'll have a look.
I'll have a look for the girls tonight.
