My Great Grandmother was born Emily Munro on 12 September 1858 in Murrurundi NSW Australia.

Her parents are stated as:

  • John Munro - Clerk  born about 1831 in Scotland and married on 17 August 1857 in Edinburgh to Kate Ross  born about 1837 in Scotland.
  • According to this John and Kate must have migrated to Australia in 1857 or 1858
  • Apart from that I have been unable to trace any further details for the above especially for Kate Ross/Munro.
  • Do you have any clan members who may fit the above information.

In tracing my family tree, I can only go back as far as Joseph Munro. Birth 09 Nov 1827 in Calcutta, India, Death 20 or 23 Apr 1892 in Elyria, Lorain, Ohio, USA

He or his father were possibly involved with the British East India Company. He settled in Ohio, where there remains a Monroe reunion to this day. If anyone out there has any history of Monroes in India, please share it and help me get past my dead end!

Dane Munro,1562 Malta, dane@danemunro.com

I am searching for information regarding John Munro, born 1788, died 1840. He married an English woman, Charlotte Cowie.

Haydn Vesty, Melbourne VIC 3000, hg.vesty@bigpond.com

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.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
