Hi Roger,

Here's James' birth...

James Anderson Knight - 1859 rego.3274 Warrnambool - Parents: Walter Knight & Robina Anderson

Walter & Robina were married in 1858 rego.1659

Robina Knights died in 1860 age 30 (c.1830), Parents: Janes (James?) Anderson & Isabella MacPherson.

Robina's birth place is given as 'INV', I don't know what that's short for. :)

(Update...Robina's birth...

Birth: 21 JUN 1830
Christening: 23 JUN 1830 Cromdale And Inverallan And Advie, Inverness, Scotland)

I'd say Walter was married to Sarah Dunnell first, and she died in 1857 (age 34 - b. Norfolk - Par: James & Mary Dunnell), and then Walter married Robina in 1858.

So James Anderson Knights & Henry Melbourne Knights were half brothers.

Walter & Sarah had another 2 children, before Sarah died...

1. Alice Maria - b.1856 Warrnambool - poss. d.1860
2. James Dunnell - b.1857 Warr. d.1857 14 weeks old.

Back to Henry Melbourne Knight's daughters who married the Wallace boys...

Marie Susannah Knights m. John Wallace in 1904
Selina Cathering Knights m. James Henry Wallace in 1906

Another child for Henry & Selina Knights...
Walter Henry Knights - d.1974 Warr age 73 (c.1901)

James Farley Knights (mentioned in previous post) was married to Elizabeth McLaren m.1907.

Interesting that James married under James 'Stawell' Knights.

Unfortunately I can't identifiy Walter Knights' (married to Sarah & Robina) death.

As far as I know the Knight family I'm researching is totally unrelated...

Mark Levi KNIGHT married Catherine Gladys MURPHY in Victoria 1927.

Mark's parents were Northcote Knight & Cora Varney. Mark had 4 sisters, who just disappeared off the face of the earth! :)

Murphy is my main branch. As you can imagine researching the surname Murphy... I thought it would be easier trying to track Catherine through the Knight branch.

Kind regards,
