Hi Alison

Just wondering how much information you want...I have tracked the family from Scotland to Vic - another son of James TAYLOR also became a Baptist Minister ( in Sandhurst/Bendigo) - he married Anna LUSH 1863, had children but was convicted of fraud as a Trustee in 1870.... He died 1909 and there is a great Obit for him ( no mention of the fraud)in the papers, but very interesting anyway- one of his daughters was an author...famous for her book ' We of the Never Never'

see here - there is a photo of her:

also:

There is lots of info on the www about her.

and this - about Rev James TAYLOR's work at the Collins St Baptist Church etc

and as usual with these things, I find the easy stuff last:

There are quite a few images for the GUNN family - if you google Jeanie's name, then go to the top of the google page and click on ' Images'...you will see some great stuff

there is a lot about Rev James TAYLOR if you google

Another son of Rev James TAYLOR, John TAYLOR was an ironmonger in Melbourne who was bankrupted to the tune of 45,000 quid after his brother Rev Thomas TAYLOR defrauded Mrs Jones.

I have information on some of the daughters marriages as well.

the TAYLOR family is the quintessential ' MIXED BAG' !!!

Cheers
Jocelyn
