b. circa 1809, d. 11 April 1877
Last Edited: 10 Aug 2016
  • Birth*: Isabella Johnstone was born circa 1809 at Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
  • Marriage*: Isabella Johnstone married Hugh McMillan circa 1825 at Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
  • Married Name: As of circa 1825, her married name was McMillan.
  • Emigration: Isabella Johnstone and Hugh McMillan emigrated in 1842 to Port Phillip, Victoria, Australia, arriving on 26 January 1842:

  • Death*: Isabella Johnstone died on 11 April 1877 at Pakington Street, Geelong West, Victoria, Australia, age 68 years. She died of Apoplexy Hemiplegia, Bronchitis (three months 15 days). 32 years in Victoria, born Glasgow, Scotland, married in Glasgow at age 16 years.

    Hugh, dead
    Hugh, dead
    Alexander, dead
    Margaret, dead
    Thomas, 31 yrs
    James, 29 yrs
    William 26 yrs.
    The death certificate gives her parent's names as Hugh McMillan, gentleman and Janet McMillan, maiden name unknown. This is odd, as McMillan was her married name.2
  • Anecdote*: Looking at the map of Geelong West today, there is an Isabella St that crosses Pakington St, and also close by is a McMillan St. This is probably not a coincidence.

Last Edited: 23 Jun 2021
  • Anecdote*: Note that variants on spelling the name are ALS and ALSE.
  • Birth: Abraham Alce was born in 1737/38 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.
  • Baptism*: Abraham Alce was baptized on 25 February 1737/38 at St Peter, East Blatchington, Sussex, England.1
  • He was the son of Abraham Alce and Ann Ince.
  • Anecdote: The following note has been made about the East Blatchington parish registers from 1736:
    "For several years - until 1748 - the Register has been kept very carelessly. Entries are hopelessly out of chronological order." Source: The Parish Registers of East Blatchington, Sussex 1563-1804, Transcribed by Revd. John H. Layton and Frank R. Williams (1940.)
  • Marriage*: Abraham Alce married Sarah Richardson, daughter of John Richardson and Elizabeth Hudson, on 3 May 1768 at Alciston, Sussex, England, recorded as Abraham "EALES" married Sarah RICHARDSON.2
  • Residence*: In 1771 Abraham Alce and Sarah Richardson lived at Milton St, Wilmington, Sussex, England, (recorded on the baptism for their son John ALCE on 6 Oct 1771.)1
  • Death*: Abraham Alce died in 1803 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.
  • Burial*: Abraham Alce was buried on 11 December 1803 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.3
  • Anecdote*: Abraham and Sarah were buried on the same day and the register states "Abraham Alce and Sarah his wife buried in the same grave". One wonders about the cause of their deaths (accident, cold weather, coincidence?).
