Janet Falconer

Female, CreeID#2953, (23 January 1820 - )
Janet Falconer was born on 23 January 1820 in Dundonald, Ayrshire, Scotland.1 She was the daughter of Thomas Falconer and Janet Cuthbertson. Janet Falconer was baptised on 27 February 1820 in Dundonald, Ayrshire.1

Her son Walter Warnock was born in 1837 or 1838 in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland.2

Janet Falconer married Thomas Warnock on 14 June 1839 in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire. (Family sources give the name of James Warnock's father as James Warnock. If they are correct the situation is more complicated, since this marriage is well documented.)3

On 7 June 1841 Janet Falconer and James Warnock were living in East Netherton Street, Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland, along with Marion Falconer. James and Janet were aged 20 but these were rounded figures in the 1841 Census. Walter was 2 years old and Marion was also 20.4

Her son James Warnock Cree was born after 7 June 1841 in Craigie, Ayrshire, Scotland.5,6

Family sources, his marriage certificate and the Register of New Zealand Presbyterian Ministers give James Warnock Cree's parents as James Warnock and Janet Falconer. We have found no record of their marriage however, and a marriage record in the parochial record of Kilmarnock shows a marriage between Janet Falconer and Thomas Warnock.

After his father died in 1851, James went to live with his paternal grandmother, Agnes McGregor (whose first husband had been Walter Warnock) and her second husband James Cree. It is believed that James was adopted by them, taking the Cree surname.7

Grace Cree

Female, CreeID#2958, (28 September 1820 - )
ChartsBranch 10b. The Forteviot branch (#1)
Branch 10b. The Forteviot branch (#2)
Grace Cree was also known as Grissel Cree. She was born on 28 September 1820 in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, Scotland. At her marriage she gave her date of birth as 17 March 1821.1 She was the daughter of David Cree and Mary McLeod.

Grace Cree was a dressmaker on 13 April 1855 in 42 Rose Street, Tradeston, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland.2

Grace Cree married John Leslie, son of John Leslie and Janet Cree, on 13 April 1855 in Tradeston, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland. The ceremony was witnessed by David Cree. Isabella Cree was also a witness (but we have not identified her). John's age was shown as 44 although he was in fact 47. Grace was 34. They were first cousins and it was John's second marriage.3

Spliced or Knotted - Three Cree-Leslie Marriages in Scotland

Three marriages took place in which all six partners were descendants of either of two couples. The first couple was John Leslie and Helen Johnstone and the other was James Cree and Christian Graham. The Leslies had two sons John and David Leslie while the Crees had children named David and Janet Cree (among others).

The first Cree-Leslie marriage was between John Leslie (the son) and Janet Cree some time before 1807. They had a son who was a third John Leslie. Meanwhile John's brother, David Leslie, had a daughter Mary Leslie while Janet's brother, David Cree, had children James and Grace Cree. I hope you're following this...

In April 1855 Mary Leslie married James Cree, nephew of her father's sister-in-law Janet Cree; a few days later Mary's new sister-in-law, Grace Cree, (who was also, of course, niece of her father's sister-in-law, Janet Cree), married her own first cousin John Leslie (the third) who was also Mary's first cousin.

Got that?

On the loss of the TARAMUNG by C Drake

(Lost at sea between 31st May and 1st June 1891)

Borne on the billows, the doomed ship goes
Out from the port, neath the darkened sky;
Cargo not stowed, though the crew are on board;
She must away, though the waves ride high.

She must proceed though the sea bird bold
Straineth her wing from the storm to flee;
Owners are safe though the ship may be lost -
Sunk with the crew in the depths of the sea.

Loaded 'til scarce is her "Plimsoll" mark seen,
Slowly the "Taramung" wends on her way;
Cargo and craft are insured well, I ween;
Would that men's lives were as precious as they.

Slowly but bravely the "Taramung" steams,
Smit by the billows again and again;
Was it not murder to send her to sea
So laden, to strive with the storm on her main?

Owners are never on cargo boats seen,
Sharing the risk that brave sailors must run,
They, if they travel, must journey with speed
Comfort, not cost, is the theme of each one.

Sunk in one coffin, entombed in one grave,
Drowned is the Captain, and drowned are the crew.
No human ear heard their shriekings for aid,
None saw the "Taramung" pass out of view.

Where is the "Taramung"? Has she been driven
To seek for a shelter secure from the gale?
"Fragments of Wreckage" at length are found floating
"Posted at Lloyds" is the end of the tale.

Not so, oh Brothers, our duty is patent,
Those that they loved are left grieving behind,
Widows and orphans who look for assistance,
Aiders, in every true worker, should find.

Soldiers of commerce, they who have perished,
"Died at their posts" is our verdict, but then
Send we, this rider unto our law makers,
"STOP OVERLOADING" it means lives of men

S.S.TARAMUNG - 1281 Tons GROSS. 814 Tons NETT.
An iron vessel, built at Glasgow in 1880.
She left NEWCASTLE for MELBOURNE on the night
of 30th May 1891, with a cargo of 1467 tons of coal.
It is believed she foundered at sea with all on
board (23) on the night of 31st May 1891 between

M. Herald). She sailed from Newcastle with a full cargo of coal at 11 p.m. on Saturday week, and ought to have arrived at Melbourne on the following Tuesday, but from the time she sailed until the wreckage was found nothing whatever was seen or heard of her. She has not reported herself at any of the headlands as usual with coasters, and no ships arriving in Newcastle or Melbourne have seen her. Shortly after she left Newcastle the weather was fair, but subsequently a very fierce south-east gale set in, raising a tremendous sea. She was deeply laden, and vessels far more favourably circumstanced has all they could do to hold their own. Even the Carthage arrived last week from Sydney between twenty and thirty hours late. The Taramung had sufficient boats to carry 113 persons, including two lifeboats. There were thirty persons all told on board. The captain is J. Page; the chief office, A. Peterson; second officer, A. Scott; chief engineer, David Cree; second engineer, M’Kenzie; third engineer, J. Robinson; steward, T. Scott; cook, Humphries. There were twenty-three deck hands firemen. The vessel was only partly insured and the cargo was not insured at all."

The wreckage had, said the owners stated, been identified as a portion of the lost steamer, and its condition indicated that she had been wrecked upon the rocks at or near Perpendicular Point. Mr. H. R. Reid, a member of the board, remarked that it was a satisfaction, though a melancholy one, to find that the steamer had been lost through contact with rocks, and not through having been over loaded or driven at an excessive speed in bad weather."

    The Newcastle Marine Board held an inquiry yesterday into the loss of the steamer Taramung, which left Newcastle for Melbourne at 11 p.m. on Saturday, May 30, with a cargo of coal, and has not since been heard of. From the evidcnce of August Johnson, boss coal trimmer of the steamer Taramung ; Captain William Wallace, of the steamer Glaucus ; and Augustus Bertrand, inspector of shipping at Newcastle, it appeared that the steamer went away under the usual favourable conditions regarded loading, &c. The finding of the board was that the Taramung had an average cargo of coals on board, was drawing about her usual draught, and was not over-loaded, but was in every respect as far as could be ascertained perfectly seaworthy, and her Plimsoll mark 2 in. [10 cm.] clear. The board therefore could offer no suggestion as to the cause of her loss."

She sailed from Newcastle with a full cargo of coal at 11 p.m. on Saturday week, and ought to have arrived at Melbourne on the following Tuesday, but from the time she sailed until the wreckage was found nothing whatever was seen or heard of her. She has not reported herself at any of the headlands as usual with coasters, and no ships arriving in Newcastle or Melbourne have seen her. Shortly after she left Newcastle the weather was fair, but subsequently a very fierce south-east gale set in, raising a tremendous sea. She was deeply laden, and vessels far more favourably circumstanced has all they could do to hold their own. Even the Carthage arrived last week from Sydney between twenty and thirty hours late. The Taramung had sufficient boats to carry 113 persons, including two lifeboats. There were thirty persons all told on board. The captain is J. Page; the chief office, A. Peterson; second officer, A. Scott; chief engineer, David Cree; second engineer, M’Kenzie; third engineer, J. Robinson; steward, T. Scott; cook, Humphries. There were twenty-three deck hands firemen. The vessel was only partly insured and the cargo was not insured at all."
  8. [S421] Brisbane Courier 12 May 1892, "At the last meeting of the Victorian Marine Board a letter was read from the owners of the Taramung, which was lost some months ago, and about which nothing was definitely known, referring to the discovery of wreckage off Jervis Bay. The wreckage had, said the owners stated, been identified as a portion of the lost steamer, and its condition indicated that she had been wrecked upon the rocks at or near Perpendicular Point. Mr. H. R. Reid, a member of the board, remarked that it was a satisfaction, though a melancholy one, to find that the steamer had been lost through contact with rocks, and not through having been over loaded or driven at an excessive speed in bad weather."
