She married Francis White in 1882 at Tylden, Victoria.1 Alice and Francis appeared on the Australian electoral roll of 1903 and listed as living at Munro, Victoria. Alice had a listed occupation of home duties and he of Selector. My understanding is that a Selector has been granted land by the government of the day and given legal title to that land. The title of Selector was used and often the selection process brought the selector into conflict with squatters who had been working the land for some time prior. However there is no suggestion so far that this was the case here.

George died on 17 February 1896 at Woolgangie, Coolgardie, Western Australia, at age 22. According to his Death Certificate he died at 22 years old after being treated for about seven days for Typhoid Fever. He had lived in Western Australia for only 18 months presumably moving there to try his luck in the goldfields. His profession is listed as a "Teamster".
He was not married..1 He was buried/cremated on 18 February 1896 at Southern Cross, Western Australia. According to his Death Certificate under "Burial or Cremation" it states that he was buried or cremated on 18th February 1896 at the town of Southern Cross with the Undertaker being Frank H Snook. I have done some search for his grave but am unable to quickly find a reference for him. Maybe as he died from Typhoid Fever he was quickly cremated which would make sense for such a rampant and nasty disease.1

     David was born on 15 March 1837 at Arbroath, Angus, Scotland. David Ingles was also known as David Patterson/Pattison Ingles The name "Patterson" or "Pattison" is included here as a number of relatives remember him having this name. His son Wallace (Bill) has endorsed it on the back of a number of family photographs. The curious thing is that I can find no written evidence for its existance.
Family lore says that all of David's wives died in or from childbirth and its complications. Therefore there are potentially three stillbirths that could be added to his family tree, It also reflects on who made an attractive husband to women of this period as all his wives were young and of good childbearing age. There definitley was another pregnancy after Wallace; a stillborn child. Further family lore has it that a fourth wife had been "lined up"; a cousin/relative of Jane Emmas.
So David was procreating well into his Seventies with women in their twenties. Ask a twenty-something year old of today about marrying a seventy year old and having sex with and imagine the response you would get. Yet David, a wealthy Grocer and capable of providing your children with a priviledged life was deemed a good catch in the days when women knew they had such a high chance of death due to birth complications. Society has certainly evolved with time.
He married Jane Speirs on 9 October 1857 at 70 Lower Viewcraig Row, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland. David Ingles was widowed with the death of Jane Speirs on 27 January 1861 at 70 Lower Viewcraig Row, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland. David Ingles and his brotherJoseph Hay Ingles appeared in the English census of 1861 at St Cuthberts, 26 Carnegie Street, Newington, Midlothian, Scotland, At this stage David is 24 years old and already a widower. He is listed as Head of the household. His occupation is listed as "Provision dealer master (supplier of food etc)- employing 1 apprentice".
Joseph, 15 years old, is also listed as a "Provision dealer master - employing 1 apprentice".
Also present at the address are William Spiers, David's un-married brother-in-law, 20 years of age, and Grocer's shopman. Then Elizabeth Spiers, David's un-married sister-in-law, 14 years old, and scholar. Finally and different from my previous research there is William Speirs, David's father-in-law, born 1801 in Bridge of Weir in Renfrewshire Scotland..
He married Mary Ann Kerr on 30 September 1862 at Alma Villa, Strathearn Road, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland. David Ingles was a Grocer at The Quadrant, Launceston, Tasmania.
David was known to be a grocer in Cowsgate, Edinburgh, Scotland. He and Mary Ann Kerr appeared in the English census of 1881 at 15 Preston Street, Glasgow Hutchesontown, Lanarkshire, Scotland. He was described as being a Commercial Traveller. Also present were William 19, James R 14, David 11, Isabella R 8, George 4..1 David Ingles and Mary Ann Kerr arrived on 24 April 1882 They arrived as third class passengers aboard the Liguria having started their journey in Glascow, Scotland and boarding the ship in Edinburgh. They arrived with their children Annie (17yrs), David (15), James (12), John (11), Maggie (6) and Joseph (2). Also travelling with them were Mrs Ann Kerr (58) and G Kerr (30.)2 In the "Telegrams" column of the Daily Telegraph (Launceston) it was reported on page 2 that:
Administrations have been granted in the following estates : ... Mary Kerr Ingles to David Ingles, £156 6s 2d. He married Jane Emma Fairweather on on 20 September 1893 St John Street at the house of D.S. Brunton, Launceston, Tasmania, according to the rites of the Free Church of Scotland.3
David died on 27 March 1921 at 100 York Street at Launceston, Tasmania, at age 84. His obituary in the Daily Telegraph on 28 March 1921reads as: MR DAVID INGLES.
In his eighty-fifth year, Mr David Ingles, the founder of the well-known grocery firm of Messrs D. and M. Ingles, died at his residence, York-street, yesterday. He was a native of Scotland, being educated in Dundee and Edinburgh. After leaving school he became apprenticed to Messrs Paxtoll and Sinclair, merchants, of Dundee, afterwards carrying on business for himself in Edinburgh for 23 years: he arrived in Launceston in 1884 and joined the late Mr John McKenzie (founder of the firm of Messrs J. McKenzie and Son) in stock and share broking. A couple of years later deceased opened a cash grocery business in Patterson-street, close to where Messrs Abbott's factory now is, and it was the first strictly cash business of the kind established in Launceston. So quickly did his trade expand that in about 12months he sought larger premises in the Quadrant, where he founded the firm which bears the present name. The business continued to grow, necessitating in later years a substantial enlargement of the premises. He also opened a branch shop in Wellington-street, and two in Hobart. Deceased was most patriotic, an active member of the Caledonian Society, and after a member of the Chalmers Presbyterian Church. Deceased was strictly upright in all his dealings, and as an employer he enjoyed a splendid name. The late Mr Ingles was three times married and leaves a family of 13. One of his sons, Mr John Ingles, is chief manager of the business in Launceston and Hobart.
He was buried on 29 March 1921 at Carr Villa Cemetery, 36 Nunamina Ave, Kings Meadow, Launceston. Area: Mon
