Matilda married Alexander Ferguson, her first husband, in 1885.
I have not been able to locate Victorian birth registration details for Matilda but have reg. details of all her other brothers and sisters. Matilda was also at times called Rose Matilda Knight.
Any birth details for Matilda would be appreciated.
As you can see I have many details of her family of 1800's and also to the 2009 generation ie my family.

googy,
thanks for your info. since first entry I now have info that an error was made when recording birth of matilda rose knight,i.e fathers name thomas entered in wrong place ,therefore a son named thomas b1865 was registered in lieu of matilda. copy of Thomas, her father's death cert. verifys this. I also have photos of matilda, thomas her father and first husband alex ferguson. Her 2nd husband was named Forbes.
Where did you get birth date from? nothing on vict birth reg.
