Is this the son?

Name: George Francis Taylor
Father's Name: James Taylor
Mother's Name: Christina Johnston
Birth Place: Melbourne, Victoria
Registration Year: 1859
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration number: 11692

There are mentions in the papers for Rev James TAYLOR - seems to be baptist...there is mention of a George Taylor threatening the life of his father, Rev James TAYLOR ( 1885)
and again in 1889!!

also a denial of adultery etc by JT....1869

The above GFT is correct, he had siblings-eg Jeanie T who was a teacher at the Baptist school Richmond

1870:
INQUESTS.

On Thursday an inquest was hold by Dr. Youl, on the body of Bertie Taylor, aged eight years, son of the Rev. James Taylor, lato of the Collins-street Baptist Church. Deceased was in the habit of going for a ride in themilkcartdriven by John Withers, and on the 17th inst. got into the cart and remained in it until the driver got out to serve a customer. AVhile the man was away the horse, which was usually a quiet one, ran away, and the cart upset near the Treasury, falling on top of the boy, who sustained severe scalp wounds, a comminuted fracture of the lower jaw, and fracture of the ribs on....etc


also check out the Wills - there is a Methodist minsiter and another one out of Melbourne:

a long letter to the Editor about Rev JT..finishes this way:

The history of the church does not present a more disgusting and insult- ing spectacle to the religious sentiments of a Christian people than that now presented by Mr. Taylor. He holds up the office of the ministry to the contempt and scorn of all the enemies of truth! Your article of this morning deserves the thanks of every lover of morality and of truth. I shall not trespass further on your space, only to advise the Rev. Mr. Taylor to ponder over the example of Mr. Sibthorpe, and "go and do likewise."
I am Sir, your obedient servant,
May 11, 1869 DECENCY.

I found George F T in some electoral rolls - no sign of Emma as far as I can make out - he was an engineer ( there was another GFT fellow, a gardener)

He died 1937 - in the papers there is an article about an auction of very fine furniture - that of Keith Murdoch and George F TAYLOR...March 1937 - don't know if he is your man, but we know who Keith Murdoch was!

you could probably just google the address of the church and see what comes up

Hope this helps with some background

Cheers
