|About The MARR, AITKEN, WATTS Family Tree
TP has now enabled the
upload of multi-page & other types
of documents (eg. sound, video, etc.). I have now completed transferring all such files to within TP
itself, and therefore no longer
use the Skydrive facility. All in all, this amounts
to over 100 such files and a
total of over 600Mb of disc space.
|If you find any images that you
would like to download, but aren't
happy with the resolution, contact me via the Guestbook, clearly identifying the image concerned and
including your e-mail address and I
will send you the original (which may or may not be a better quality).
|GENERATIONS COVERED BY THIS
This family-tree primarily encompasses the direct-line ancestors, and
their siblings, of Ian MARR, Roberta AITKEN, Benjamin WATTS-MARR
and Chloe WATTS-MARR.
Beginning in 2016, certain images, such as Electoral Rolls and Census Returns, have not been
included in the tree, but are
available in the Alternative Family Tree (see below). Each of these, however, is detailed in the Sources
and Person Notes for the
ALTERNATE FAMILY TREE
A more extensive tree is also maintained at Ancestry.com. This
tree extends beyond the scope of
this one, and therefore contains more people. All relevant images ARE included in that tree, but
unfortunately, due to Ancestry's
own limitations, Notes are not displayed. The Ancestry tree is a public tree and can be found at: Marr/Aitken/Watts Family Tree

|The main branches of
this tree are MARR, AITKEN and WATTS. It has been grown from the perspective of the grandchildren of
Ian John MARR and Roberta Lily AITKEN - hence the inclusion of the WATTS branch.
The MARR branch (me) eminates from the Midlothian area in
Scotland and has been traced back to John MARR, born probably mid 1700's. John married
Elizabeth GALLOWAY. His grandson, Adam Bogue MARR; born 1814 in South Leith,
Midlothian, Scotland came to Australia in 1841 aboard the Marquis of Bute.
The AITKEN side (my wife) came from Ayrshire, Scotland and
has been traced back to John Rodden AITKEN, born mid 1800's. He married Mary
DEVARET. Their son, Daniel Rodden AITKEN came to Australia in
1927 aboard the SS Bendigo.
WATTS line (the grand-children) was centred around Barnstaple, Devon, England. It has been
traced back to Henry WATTS, born 1812. Henry married Elizabeth GUBB;
they came to Australia in 1852 aboard the Persian.
