I was very surprised to stumble onto this site and see my great grandmother's name! Just when I am trying to find more information about her.
Wemyssina was born 8th January 1870 in Kirkwall (or possibly Caithness). She was the youngest daughter of William Dunnet and wife Marjory Auld.
She married Albert Pearson on 20th March 1890 in Sydney, Australia. I would very much like to know when she came to Australia and with whom. Albert and Wemyssina separated (not sure when), but he died 31st December, 1939. She lived at Oatley, a suburb of Sydney, and died on 9th July 1950.
She had sons Reginald (died in November 1918 from Tuberculosis), Albert Dunnet (died in November 1918 from War wounds)and daughters Marjorie Auld (died aged 88 in 1987) and Edith Jenny. Wemyssina adopted 2 children (Olga and Donald) after her sons died.
I would very much like to hear from anyone who has information on the family of William Dunnet, wife Marjory Auld, their children, parents, or any connection.
