Under Southern Stars

Home to first Australians,
Joined from near and far,
Shining light for freedom,
Under Southern Stars.

Nation made of many,
Bound in hope as one,
Building for the future,
Under Southern Sun.

Free and Friendly Nation,
Born of our own hand,
Peace our greatest virtue,
Mighty Southern Land.

Valiant into Battle,
Courage to the end,
Standing firm for freedom,
Loyal southern friend.

Nature's earthly heaven,
Glory for our eyes,
Ours alone those treasures,
Under Southern Skies.

Shining light for Freedom
Under Southern Stars.

     Prior to beginning the reading of this compilation, it is recommended that you read the compiler, John Duncan's introduction, if you have not already.

     In Scotland, the land of my birth, folks have a popular saying that "we are all Jock Tamson's bairns!"

     I have no idea who Mr. Tamson [Thompson] was, but the saying may be interpreted as stating that Scots are all descended from a common ancestor, and whilst doubt can be cast upon the legitimacy of this idea, it is true that the most of the people mentioned in this family history, are indeed the descendants of this Scottish lady - Margaret Haldane, and so I have decided to entitle this story:

We are all Margaret Haldane's Bairns.

        1841 census, 10 Little Dove Hill, Glasgow, Scotland:

        James Archabald, 50, Shoemaker, born Scotland

        Margaret (Haldane) Archabald, 40, - - - , born Scotland

        Isabella Archabald, 25, Power Loom Weaver, born Lanarkshire

        John Archabald*, 15, Tailor, born Lanarkshire

        Margret Archabald, 8, - - - , born Lanarkshire

        Ann Archabald, 6, - - - , born Lanarkshire

        Janet Archabald, 1, - - - , born Lanarkshire

     * In this census our John Stewart, son of Margaret Haldane and her first husband, Charles Stewart, is listed under his step-father's surname of Archibald/Archabald. John became very close to his half-sisters and it has been said that he and little Ann Archabald were especially fond of each other, as siblings, and remained so through out their lives.

Annie Archibald McColl and her older half-brother, John Stewart


     Alexander McColl married Annie Archibald in a Presbyterian Church in Melbourne, and their original Marriage Certificate tells us:

     Schedule C:
In the Colony of Victoria.      No. in Register, 541
Marriage by Banns.      Melbourne District.
Solemnised according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Church of Scotland on the 16th July, 1858.

Alexander McColl, Tailor, Age 28. Born Kilmally Scotland.
Parents: John McColl, Farmer.  Christine McIntyre [Maiden name].

Annie Archibald. Spinster. Age 22. Born Glasgow, Scotland.
Parents: James Archibald, Shoemaker, Margaret Hill [maiden name***].
Witnesses: William Mirfin [Morphin?] Daniel Pollock.

Officiating Minister: Irving Hetherington [Presyterian Minister]

     ***IT is firmly believed by all concerned that the above reference to Ann's mother's maiden name as being "Hill" is surely a GRIEVOUS CLERICAL ERROR, as the descendants have other sources to clearly document Ann's mother as being Margaret "Haldane".

     Alexander died in Melbourne on 17 Dec 1890.

Annie Archibald McColl

Annie died in Melbourne on 17 Apr 1919, and the following notes compiled by Flo Haines, may be of interest to the reader:

    1]  From Obituary Notice in the “Australian Christian” of 19 Jun 1919, and written by Jas. E. Thomas, then minister at Lygon Street.

McColl:  Mrs. Annie McColl was one of the foundation members of the church at Lygon St., having united with the church, along with her husband, and when the brethren met for worship in the old meeting house in Barkly Street, Carlton.  For many years both Bro.[&] Sis. McColl were spared to serve God together in the pioneer days of our movement in this church... About 20 years ago her husband was called home.  Her life has been a benediction to the preacher and people.  We laid her mortal remains away in the Melbourne Cemetery on April 19Th (sic 1919).  The Conference meeting that day recorded their esteem of her life.....

    2]  Mrs. Margaret Haddow [nee Margaret Annie McColl], mother’s eldest sister, when they were trying to gather some family history together, wrote on 12 Sep 1934:

"Father and Mother were baptised in the Collins Street Baptist Church by James Service, afterwards joining Lygon Street [Church].  I was about four years old [1865] when Lygon Street Church was built, so I cannot remember much about that, but I do remember going to the Barkly Street Sunday School with Jack [ John James McColl] and Alex [Alexander Edward McColl] {her brothers}.

We had only to go across the road.  We went with Charlie and Tom Mitchell.  I can remember Mr. Surber as preacher and his conducting cottage prayer meetings in the member’s homes.”

    3]  Incidentally, I (Jean) have a copy of the Jubilee History of our Churches in Australia; published in 1902, and this contains photo’s of Grandma and Grandpa McColl, mentions early days at Lygon Street, with a number of other photo’s, including other members of the families, in various auxiliary groups etc..

    4]  I (Jean) was asked at one stage the friendship link with the Misses Ellis and our families, and was able to supply: “My Mother was named Florence Priscilla Stevenson McColl...after members of the Stevenson family - very old friends of Grandma McColl--and aunts of the two Misses Ellis {Priscilla and Helen}--who were at “Emmaus”, and recently passed away.

    5]  I (Jean) have a plate {Royal Crown Derby} which the Misses Stevenson gave to my mother--I can remember her bringing it home. My memory of her comments at the time, added to the years since, would suggest the possibility of its being well over 150 years old. When visiting “Emmaus”, after the death of the Misses Ellis, I noticed in the crystal cabinet there, four similar plates, so presumably the Misses Ellis had received these from their Aunts, the Misses Stevenson.

   6]  I (Jean) was also asked on another occasion, to link the McColl / Haddow / Haines families, and supplied:

   Jane Haines married James Haddow.

   Margaret Annie McColl married Andrew Haddow.

   Annie Jane McColl married Nathanial Haddow.

   Florence P. S. McColl married James Henry Haines.

The three Haddow brothers, above, were the sons of Andrew Haddow, Senior, also of Lygon Street. Margaret, Annie, and Florence McColl were sisters. Jane and James Haines, were sister and brother.

The Alexander McColl And Annie Archibald Family:

Updates for the following bearing “ * * ” are compliments of Kinsman, Kenneth Campbell McColl of Australia; thank you Co-Ogha Coinneach :-. And our heart felt thanks also go out to first cousins, Susan Cameron Jean Gell and Andrea Jean McColl, for making corrections on their John James McColl line! Thank you!!!

A few notes from said Kenneth C. McColl : " At age 44, in 1865, Alexander resided at 4 Rathdowne Street, Carlton, Victoria, Australia, according to the Sands & MacDougall's Melbourne and Suburban Directory.

When aged 54, in 1875, Alexander resided at Somerset Place, Carlton, Victoria, Australia, again according to the same Directory as previously mentioned, as too was he referenced by the same source in 1880, at age 59, residing at 2 Mayday Terrace, Davis St., North Carlton, Victoria, Australia.

Alexander died at age 69, 1890, at Park Street, in Brunswick, Victoria, Australia."

In 2011, this compiler, Colleen Cahoon, received the following information, from a fellow researcher, Lyn Dalton : "I have just found your Alexander McColl, tailor on your site.(born Scotland, died 1890 Brunswick, Victoria, Aust)
I do wonder if he was the same Alexander who was in partnership with Alfred Chittock ([Lyn Dalton's] Grandfather) as tailors & outfitters at 228 Elizabeth St, Melbourne in 1875, & at Lygon St., Carlton. In 1884 the business was at 237-39 Elizabeth St.

In searching for answer to Lyn Dalton's query, I (CC) came across the website,, which shared some additional details about Lyn Dalton's ancestor, Alfred Chittock: "Alfred was a master tailor. There are entries in the 1875 Sands Directory for Melbourne to indicate that a tailoring business by the name of Chittock & McColl had premises at 228 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne; Lygon Street, North Carlton (where Alfred is named as well as the business name); Somerset Place, Carlton (where Alex McCOLL is named as well as the business). The premises in Elizabeth Street are between Little Latrobe Street and A'Beckett Street, one shop from the corner of Little Latrobe, between an Ironmonger (who is on the corner) and the Australasian Hotel. * In 1884 the same business was at 237 and 239 Elizabeth Street Melbourne, and Alfred was living in Bendigo Street, Hotham (which is now North Melbourne). The business premises had moved as they were now between Latrobe and A'Beckett Streets. 221 was on the corner of Latrobe and 247 was at the other end of the block cornering on A'Beckett."

It is this compiler's humble opinion, that whereas both researchers, Dalton and McColl, independently arrived upon a reference of "Somerset Place, Carlton" respective to their subject of interest, a tailor named Alexander McColl, and a descendant of Alexander's, Ross Alexander McColl also mentions (further below) LaTrobe, then he is surely one and the same tailor? And with that in mind, jezzmo is happy to share the following:

12] Haldane Stewart McColl, Born 14 Jan 1884. Died 29 Jan 1971 [single].

 Haldane was the last child of Alexander & Annie McColl, and I have commenced with him simply because he never married, and he is one of the few McColl’s of whom I have some biographical information, courtesy of his niece, Jean Haldane Haines, now of course Mrs. Jean Gribben.

   "Not sure where “Unk” went to school, but at some stage, attended South Preston State School, because I have a card which he received, for being the “Oldest male ex student to take part and attend [school] Centenary 1866 - 1966 celebrations. I also have from Education Department a certificate of exemption, from compulsory attendance stating he had been educated up to a standard of education required by the Education Act 1890, dated Gowerville 22 Jul 1896 - Inspector Samuel Saunders.

   I (Jean) know there were several addresses in Carlton, North Carlton, East Brunswick area where Grandma McColl lived.

   On an overseas trip he visited his brother Daniel Archibald McColl, who was working in the mines in South Africa, and Haldie must also have worked there too, as, in a written account of his trip from the mines by train to Durban, he said he had given notice and signed papers resigning from the mines on June 1907.

   He had booked a passage earlier on a ship to return to London and spent several days in Durban before then in June 1907, but found on one day he could get an examination for a license at the Council Yard. So got out his tools and spent a day there and after having passed the test, spent a few days haunting the city engineer as afraid he would not get the license before the boat left, and as the authorities were under the impression that he was working in the town, so he had to let them think so in order to get the paper. He said that he could not show his hand!

   He was fortunate to get the paper the day before the ship sailed. He passed practical and theoretical examinations with distinction, gaining 97% and 84% respectively at Transvaal University College, Johannesburg, on 14 Mar 1906. He was applying for a license as a first-class Sanitary Plumber, licensed to work in connection with house drainage of the Borough of Durban.

   He returned to Australia and a business in Canterbury Rd., Canterbury, near Chatham Railway Station.

   He enlisted W.W.1 58th Battalion and rank of Captain, serving in the Middle East and also in France. After the war he went to New South Wales, bought 856 acres at Ulamambri near Coonabarabran, and farmed there, mainly sheep, for several years.

   He built his own home, room by room, looking after himself; he was a good cook and particular in every way.

   My Father and Mother took me to visit “Unk” about 1926/7 and as Dad was a Railway man, he had a free pass on the train. Wonderful experience for me and I have good memories of this visit, despite only being 8 or 9 years old.

   He obviously bought more acres as when he sold out in 1934, he sold 1976 acres. He then returned to Melbourne and retired. He lived at Station Street, Carrum, on the Patterson River and in 1968 moved to 10 McCrae St., Seaford, where he died.

   He was a Councillor of the Chelsea City Council from 1937 to 1949, and was Mayor twice 1940-1941, and 1945-1946.

   During World War 2 he served with the Citizen Military Forces as District Area Captain at Frankston 03 Jul 1940 to 07 Dec 1943.

   Most of his family, nieces, nephews, visited him at some time. I have a letter 1934 written to him, letting him know that Aunt Bella [Isabella Napier Stewart - Mrs. I. Duncan -the compiler’s grandmother] was coming to Melbourne for the Centenary of the City of Melbourne with the Scotch Delegation, leaving Glasgow, August 1934.

   I (Jean) have a letter to Haldie addressed to Captain H.S. McColl, c/o Mrs Duncan, 27 Richmond St., Glasgow. [this was the compiler’s (John Duncan's) grandparent’s home] In 1917 he was apparently with 38th Battalion, and the letter was addressed to H.S. McColl, 2nd Lieutenant, A.I.F. France 38th Battalion.”

Funeral Eulogy:

     Ã¢â‚¬Å“Haldane Stewart McColl was the youngest son of Alexander and Annie McColl, who were amongst the pioneer members of this church at Lygon Street. Haldie was born in Carlton on January 14, 1883. As with all other members of the family, he was brought to the church as a child, sharing in Sunday School and other activities.

     He was always mechanically minded and of an adventurous nature. After completing his training and qualifying as a plumber, he went overseas - South Africa, England, Scotland and Canada, -on what today would be called a “working holiday.”

     Both parents had come to Australia, from Scotland, and he was also able to visit other members of their families still there.

     On returning home he set up business in Canterbury road, close to where the Chatam railway station now is. Then came the first World War---he enlisted in the Australian volunteer army in March 1916. He saw service both in the Middle East and in France; he was in the 58th Battalion, reaching the rank of Captain.

     Following discharge from the army he went on to the land at Coonabarabran in northern New South Wales, remaining there for many years, including the period of depression, when things were really very tough. His earlier training enabled him to do many things for himself, and he was also able to help the other men starting out in this new venture, in this area.

     Anyone finding a nut or bolt or or a bit of anything along the road, got it to “Mac” as they felt he would know where it came from, and be able to fix it up and repair something for someone, so that through all the years he was there, he continued to be the community helper.

     He eventually returned to Victoria and settled in Station Street, Carrum, and it was not long before he became involved and active in community service. He was a Councillor for Chelsea for many years, and also served two or three terms as Mayor of the City.

     Then came the second World War of 1939-1945, he again volunteered and served as Captain for the Frankston area.

     His home in more recent times has been at Seaford. He was an honorary life governor of the Alfred Hospital, and the Bush Nursing Association. He was a Justice of the Peace for many years, but some little while after his 80th birthday he resigned.

     He was a good man and lived a good life, respected by all with whom he came into contact. Independence was a very strong characteristic of his, and he maintained this to the end. He had never married; he lived alone and looked after himself in every way, and had the ability to do so. In talking about his life at one time, he said that he was not conscious of having ever made an enemy!

     He died suddenly on Friday last, the 29th January, just two weeks after his 88th birthday. Although he was the last of his own immediate family, he has always been the very dearly loved and respected Uncle of all his nieces and nephews, and by now, this number has grown to include also their children and their grandchildren, all of whom will be conscious that they have lost a friend.

     Others in the community, too, will share this feeling of loss. And so we come to today’s service of remembrance. Whether we think of him as Captain, Friend, Mac, or Uncle, we honour and will cherish the memory of one of god’s gentlemen in Haldane Stewart McColl.”

Florence Priscilla Stevenson McColl.

   Florence married James Henry Haines and for the biographical notes of the Haines family, the compiler is again indebted to their daughter Jean, now Mrs. Gribben:

   Ã¢â‚¬Å“Mother [Florence] went to school in Carlton and completed State School education only. Then she remained at home to look after her brothers and sisters. Her other three sisters went into the tailoring business with their father Alexander McColl.

   In her younger adult days [Florence] belonged to a quartet party who sang at many functions and she was a member of the Melbourne Philharmonic Society.”

   Ã¢â‚¬Å“My father James Henry Haines was a cabinet maker when he came to Victoria [from Tasmania?] but changed to the Victorian Railways where he spent the rest of his working life as a clerk. He used to test the engine-drivers.”

Thomas Haynes & Emma Holdsworth.

   Ã¢â‚¬Å“My father, James Henry Haines, was the son of Thomas Haynes and Emma Holsworth [Hallworth] and the family always spelled his name as Haines.

   Thomas arrived in Tasmania in 1830 having been sentenced in Wiltshire, England, for life for stealing a watch. He was about 23 at the time. On 07 Dec 1838 he received a ticket of leave, and in 1842 a conditional pardon, he was released entirely but not allowed to return to the United Kingdom.

   He could neither read nor write and signed with an X. He was born on the 03 Nov 1807 at Melkshan, Wiltshire and died in Victoria on 24 Apr 1905.

   Emma Holdsworth [pencil mark on marriage certificate “Hallworth”] was Christened on 23 Nov 1834 at Cathedral, Manchester, Lancashire, England. Her parents were David and Margaret Hallworth of Chorlton, City of Manchester. David was a “fitter up” i.e. mechanic in textile mill.

   Emma was sentenced and tried at the Manchester Quarter Sessions on 07 Apr 1851 [only 17 years old] guilty of a felony - stealing two shawls in London Road, and arrived in Tasmania on 26 Jan 1852, on a seven year sentence, being described as a “nurse girl”.

   Received her “Free Certificate” on 14 Apr 1858. Thomas & Emma were married at St. George’s Church of England, Hobart Town, on 27 Apr 1857. They had five children, and arrived in Victoria on 24 May 1888, but maybe not all arriving together. My father [Jean’s] being number four, two sisters and two brothers.

   In my mother’s Bible Thomas Haynes, at his death, was described as a “gentleman”. Emma died on 26 Aug 1893.

   My [Jean’s] generation knew nothing of this background till a grandson started seeking information of parents. After piecing all together, it was felt that our parents knew and had been told, but nothing passed on to us. We have no further information about Thomas.”

Florence Emma Haines.

   Ã¢â‚¬Å“Flo joined the [Victorian State] public service after high school but didn’t like work conditions, finishing work given [early] that was supposed to last all day. After that she became a typist and office secretary to Churches of Christ, Conference Executive and after 20 years was appointed assistant conference secretary and some years later-Conference Secretary.

   She was honoured to receive Queen’s Coronation Medal in 1953 [Queen Elizabeth], for her service to God and the brotherhood. She retired after 38 years service.”

James Thomas Haines.

   Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tom followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Victorian Railways. He married Nellie May Allen in 1935 and they had six children; three boys and three girls. They lived at Box Hill till it became necessary to look after her Mother and Father, and they moved back to Surrey Hills and most of the family were brought up there.
   They were both involved with the Surrey Hills, Church of Christ, and played tennis with the club there. Before his marriage Tom played cricket with the Adelphian Church of Christ team in the Church competition.
     Tom was a blood donor for many years and it was felt that this may have been a contributing factor for his early death.”

Jean Haldane Haines.

   Ã¢â‚¬Å“I [Jean] was the only child who did not attend Princes Hill, State School in Carlton, because the family moved from East Brunswick when I was about four years of age. So I went to Moreland Infant State School and Central, then fifteen months at Melbourne Girls High School, and finished at Stotts Business College in Melbourne.

   Worked at Federation Insurance for twenty years, then married Jack Gribben on 29 Jan 1955 at Lygon St. Church of Christ, Carlton and moved to the farm at Invergordon, via Numurkah, Victoria.

   My father and Mother were members of the Lygon St., Church of Christ - taught in Sunday School. Dad was envelope recorder and Mother belonged to the Ladies Group. My Mother was well known for her cooking.

   She married James Henry Haines on 22 Oct 1902 at Lygon St., Church of Christ, and they lived in ‘Lochiel” cottage, 119 Park Street, East Brunswick till approximately 1922/24, then moved to a new house at 24 Nicholson Street, East Coburg. This home was sold when Flo [Florence Emma] moved to a flat in Auburn Rd, Hawthorn, ( some time after Jean was married).

   We remained farming till sold, in 1993, and we moved to 1 Rowe Street, Numurkah. Jack [John Gribben] was not well having many complaints and problems, and gradually became worse and he sadly passed away from a massive stroke in July 1995.

           2] Andrea Jean McColl. Following is an extract from Andrea, sent to this compiler, (her fourth-half cousin) Colleen Cahoon on 13th Dec. 2011: ..." The primary catalyst for this email was the recent Blog Post on your site titled Attention Decendents of Tailor, Alexander McColl. I read the question from Aussie Ms Lyn Dalton with interest but can offer very little by way of information. It would seem that the gentleman in question, tailor, Alexander McColl (d 1890, Brunswick Victoria) is my great great grandfather. Unfortunately my family does not appear to have any documentation detailing the business location or possible business partnerships. I did however consult with my brother Ross, who offers the following: 'Alexander McColl was in fact a tailor. I have no idea where his business was located. Grandpa’s father, John James McColl, was also a tailor. I know that his business was located where the current Age offices are based. The Age building is in Spencer Street on the corner of either Lonsdale or LaTrobe Streets.
I also note that Grandpa’s father also had a brother named Alexander, but there are no details about what he did.'
...." So, as you can see, we have very little to offer Ms Lyn Dalton at this time. Only wish there was more.
