Looking for Robert Guy Taylor

+7 votes
Robert Guy Taylor is named as the father. I believe that this person maybe one of the people I am looking for. What I know is that a Robert Guy Taylor was the son of William Farrow Taylor and Alice Louise Taylor nee Trew. Born around 1903/04 in Cambridge. UK. Quite a few brothers and sisters including the eldest son William Farrow Taylor

I have been led to believe that Robert Guy Taylor left his university course in UK and went to Australia ( 1920's ?)

Can you find any clues?

Thanks. Stuart

Stuart, why the link to Peter Taylor's profile? How is he connected to your question?
Ah, never mind; I see that the narrative includes a source reference that names Peter's father as Robert Guy. I didn't see that initially. Never mind. ;-)

According to https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj the death record for Peter Taylor in 1985 records his parents as Robert Guy TAYLOR & Elsie Lillian WALLER, his place of birth was Maryborough & he was age 54 when he died. Ref. #13406.

From http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl Robert G. TAYLOR married Elsie L. WALLER in Jun Qtr 1923 in Cambridge registration district Vol. 3b, page 1122.

There is also an article on TROVE under "Law Notices" mentioning Robert Guy Taylor of Maryborough http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/205854170 & several further articles in relation to bankruptcy proceedings.

Thanks Wayne,

I am confused. A 1923 wedding transcription showed Robert Guy Taylor marrying a Elsie Lillian Waller - see answer above. Do you have a web link I could follow?
