John was the son of David Alexander Stewart, who was a Scottish emigrant, from Ardossan, North Ayrshire; and of Jessie Ritchie, whose parents were Scottish. Evelyn was the daughter of a Scottish emigrant, Robert George Henderson, of Lilliesleaf, Roxburghshire, and of Carey Waterman, whose parents were English.

Delta’s maternal grandfather was Thomas Herbert “Tom” Parker (the son of Thomas Herbert Parker and Florence Daisy Winifred Bray). Delta’s grandfather Thomas was born in Bendigo, Victoria. Delta’s great-grandfather Thomas was the son of Thomas Laidman Parker, an English emigrant, from Haughton le Spring, Durham, and of a Scottish emigrant, Isabella Esther Dillon Plummer, of Monifieth, Angus.

    Is the “Irish” more specifically Scots-Irish/Ulster Scots going by the name (Bennett) and the fact they came from Antrim?

    Netta’s middle name is Joyce, and was born in Wedderburn, Victoria. Her mother was Evelyn May “Effie” Hendersn. David was a Scottish emigrant, from Ardossan, North Ayrshire. John’s mother was Jessie Ritchie, whose own parents were Scottish. Evelyn was the daughter of a Scottish emigrant, Robert George Henderson, of Lilliesleaf, Roxburghshire, and of Carey Waterman, whose own parents were English.

    Tom’s full name is Thomas Herbert Parker, and was born in Bendigo, Victoria. Thomas Laidman was an English emigrant, from Haughton le Spring, Durham. Delta’s great-grandfather Thomas’ mother was Scottish emigrant, Isabella Esther Dillon Plummer, of Monifieth, Angus. Florence is already deceased, and her middle names are Daisy Winifred. Rupert’s middle name is Henry, and was of half English and half Scottish descent. Annie’s parents were English.

    Now, we have to look for her maternal grandmother.
