Haydn Vesty, Melbourne,

I'm researching the lineage of Andrew Munro, who enlisted in the Royal Regiment of Artillery (21st Brigade) on the 28th of August 1848 at age 20. He was born in or near the town of Falkirk about 1818. He was honourably discharged after 22 years of service as a Quartermaster Sergeant 96th Brigade after serving in the Persia Campaign.

He married Isabella Jennings in India in 1856 and migrated to Australia in 1869 with 7 children.

Andrew died in Melbourne in 1901 and his death certificate records his father as a military officer with the surname of Palmer. His mother as Margaret Palmer, formerly Munro.

I am unable to locate either 'Palmer' who must have been born around 1800 or Margaret Munro (Andrew carried his mother's name)

Any information enabling me to firmly establish either lineage would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks......Haydn.


Erik Franken, Huizen, The Netherlands,

I am looking for correct information on my ancestors. Reportedly my great great grandfather was William Munro (Apr 19 1796, Forres - July 27 1851, Surakarta, Indonesia). He was married to Anna Louse Winter. His father was Aleaxnder Munro (b.1761), married to Jane Begg (b.1764). His father was supposedly John Munro (b.1737) married to Christan McDonald (b.1739). His father was John Munro (b.1692) married to Katrherin Allan (b.1696). Last but not least his father was suppossed to be William Munro (b.1667) married to Marie Farer (b.1672).

I would very much appreciate it to receive comments hereto and of course preferably a correct family tree of this side of thge Munro's

John Stewart, Glasgow,

My great uncle was a Robert Goldie(17) when he joined the Seaforth Highlanders in October 1914. He was transferred to Aldershot where his commanding officer was Captain Hector Munro. Sadly, like Capt Munro , he did not survive the war, but in my great uncles case he died in Aldershot on 19/1/1915 as a result of blood poisoning after he sustained a stab wound with a bayonet during a training exercise. Capt. Munro sent a beautiful letter to my great grand parents expressing his grief and gratitude for having met my great uncle. This letter was copied into the Kilmarnock Standard news paper of which I have a copy. I am going to Ypres on 19th October 2014 and touring some battle sites. I will also be making my way to the cemetery where Capt Munro is buried to hopefull pay my respects. If it is possible I would appreciate it if a photograph be emailed to me to enable me to at least picture what in my mind was a very respectable and comforting officer who was looked upon in high regard by my great grandparents and their immediate family. I trust I am not infringing on you hospitality but any assistance in this matter would be gratefully received.

 I'm looking for information on my Munro ancestors. My 2x great grandmother was Helen Munro (about 1821-1885) who married David White Martin (b. abt 1822). Their daughter Alexanderina is my great grandmother. I believe Helen's parents were Alexander Munro & Christian (or Christina) McKenzie. I would appreciate if anyone can share any information on this family.

 I am looking for information on my 5th Great Grandfather b the name of John Fisher Monroe. He was born in Ross Shire Scotland on 25 Sept 1769. I am curious if we know who his father is? I am assuming the name Munro was changed to Monroe after he came to the US. Any information would be welcome.
