Thanks Chris.

I'm interested to know what details appear on Margaret's birth certificate. Information appearing on birth and death certificates was only reliable as the informants knowledge of the family. It's also possible you may have the wrong birth certificate.

margarets siblings

james Robertson born abt 1849

john Robertson born abt 1851- died before records

david Robertson born abt 1851-govan

john Robertson born 1855- 1st year of compulsory registration in Scotland- govan-died 1868

janet Robertson born 1858- govan- died 1871

peter Robertson born 1861 - govan-

Donald mclellan Robertson born 1864-govan

Margaret Robertson born 1866-govan

john Robertson born 1869-govan

of the above, ,john,,peter,donald all have the mother listed as McDonald the informant is janet Robertson,grandmother, john and Margaret the informant is john Robertson , father

but on the death certs of
janet the mother is McDonald
john the mother is McDonald
james the mother is Caldwell
david the mother is Caldwell
peter have not found death cert, but marriage states mother as carwell
Donald have not found death cert but marriage cert states mother as carwell

margarets parents are john Robertson and Margaret carwell married 1848
Caldwell/carwell/cardwell are often confused in Scottish records much like muir and mair,johns death in 1875 states his wife as Margaret cardwell
margarets death in 1897 states her maiden name as Caldwell
johns wife Margaret is listed as being born in Greenock, Renfrew,in 1851,1861,1871,1881 census 1891 she listed as Glasgow Lanarkshire

the census would seem to indicate that Margaret Robertson was a Caldwell as her census birth place is constant in all but one census also Margaret {Robertson} sturm , named one of her children Margaret carwell Robertson sturm which is another pointer to the mother being carwell/Caldwell.

if there was another marriage I don't think the later children would be using carwell as the their mothers name on marriage or death certs although I still don't know why the grandmother is stating McDonald on certs as is the father occasionally?

Margaret Robertson is still with the family in the 1891 census and is unmarried and listed as a machinist

I know that Margaret sturm is from this family as my grandfather stayed with them when he came to Australia from scotland 1911 to 1914 and my uncle was born mitcham in Adelaide while he was here, he also mentioned that the sturms were saving money for the son to buy a horse to join the lighthorse brigade which he did as is shown in his war record.

also have some of William sturms family before he came to Australia if you need it

Thank you for taking the time to pass on this interesting information Chris.
I'm sure these details will help other members researching this family line. It is strange the grandmother and father both named the mother as MCDONALD and there must be a reason why.

If you would like to include a few details on William STURM before coming to Australia it may assist other researchers fill in a few gaps.

Thanks again.
