Mary Robinson

F, b. 19 November 1854, d. 5 April 1917

Mary Gillies (nee Robinson) c 1907.
  • Mary Robinson was born on 19 November 1854 in York, Yorkshire, England.
  • She was the daughter of James Robinson and Elizabeth Dixon.
  • At the time of the 7 April 1861 census Mary Robinson was living in the household of James Robinson and Elizabeth Dixon in Micklegate, York. James is shown as a 44 year old labourer, born Tollerton, living with his wife Elizabeth 34, born Pickering and children Jane 12, Elizabeth 10, Ann 8, Mary 6 and William 4 born in York.
  • Mary Robinson immigrated on 8 December 1865 to Brisbane, Queensland, with James Robinson. James and Elizabeth travelled on the Queen of the South with their 5 children, Jane 17, Elizabeth 15, Ann 13, Mary 10 and William aged 3. The ship left London on 2 September 1865 and arrived in Brisbane on the 8 December 1865. The Captain was Captain J Purvis and the surgeon GJ Wood.
  • In 1876 he was Assistant Housekeeper.
  • At the age of 22 years and 1 day, Mary Robinson married Francis Gillies, son of Thomas Bridgeman and Jane Eyles, on 20 November 1876. The ceremony was held at the bridegrooms parent's house (that of Jane and William Gillis) at Gowrie Little Plain near Meringandan. Frank's occupation was a farmer, Mary's assistant housekeeper. He was 25 and she was 22 and both gave their usual residence as Meringandan. When Frank signed the marriage register he signed his name a GILLIES instead of Gillis. The transcript of the marriage shows his parents, who witnessed the marriage, as William and Jane GILLIES also. Frank and his descendants have used that spelling ever since. Family hearsay has it that perhaps because Frank was not Williams child but Thomas Bridgemans he deliberately changed his name.
  • On 9 January 1881,Mary Robinson's daughter, Rose Elizabeth Gillies was born in Crow's Nest, Queensland. Her birth registration states her father was a 35 year old carrier born Maitland NSW (this information is incorrect. The details belong to the next birth registered that of Ellen Caroline Brown - daughter of Edward Brown). Her parents were married 22 May 1876 (incorrect) at Meringandan Downs and her mother was formerly Robinson born York, England aged 26 years. The informant was Francis Gillies of Crow's Nest and witness to the birth Mrs Robinson.
  • In May 1885.
  • On 27 May 1885,Mary Robinson's daughter, Jessie Jane Gillies was born in Geham, Queensland. Frank was a labourer at Geham at the time of Jessie's birth. A Mrs Nelder was the nurse present at the birth, most likely Frank's half sister Jane or her mother in law.
  • Just when Frank and his family moved to Emu Creek is unclear. James Herbert was born in Crows Nest in 1887, but John Thomas was born in Emu Creek in 1889. Frank and Mary's four children, William, Rose, Frank & Jessie were enrolled in the Crow's Nest School until 1892. Mary may have stayed in Crows Nest with the children until Frank had cleared the block at Djuan (Emu Creek) and built a house. In August 1882, the education department had proposed a school be built at Bum Bum Creek. Frank & Mary's five eldest children including Herbert were listed as potential students. This school was never built. However, a school was built near Frank's property around 1892. This was the Moss View School, and several of the the Gillies children would be in this photo - perhaps Walter(13), Jessie (11), and James Herbert (9). Alice may have been too young. Other children in the photo would be Orlando (12) and Egbert (9) Maddern.
  • On 21 January 1890 Mary was staying at Ebenezer with her parents at the time their sixth child, John Thomas died at the age of six months.
  • Mary Robinson and Francis Gillies appeared on the Electoral Roll in 1903 living at Djuan. Francis was a farmer. Their son William Donald, a teamster was also living at Djuan.
  • In 1907 Frank and Mary had a family portrait taken with their seven children William Donald, Rose Elizabeth, Francis Walter, Jessie Jane, James Herbert, Alice Ann and Catherine Agnes.
  • Mary Robinson and Francis Gillies appeared on the Electoral Roll in 1908 living at Hopefield, Djuan. Frank was a farmer and Mary carried out home duties. Jessie Jane also lived with them and carried out home duties. William Donald and Walter Francis were also listed as farmers at Hopefield.
  • Mary Robinson died on 5 April 1917 in Toowoomba, Queensland, at age 62.
  • She was buried on 7 April 1917 in Crow's Nest, Queensland. Mary and Frank's gravestone reads-
    Sacred to the memory of Mary gillies who died april 3rd 1917 aged 62 years and also her beloved husband frank gillies died 11th october 1925 aged 77 years.

Evidence from a local gunsmith who examined the gun stated that this was impossible to happen.
