Bold text denotes individuals in the Walker line who married. A double dash "--" indicates the just mentioned individual's second marriage and any resulting descendants of that marriage follow. An asterix indicates descriptive historical detail is available about that individual. Red text indicates that further ancestral or other family tree detail for this individual is available, but not included in the table. Individuals are indented at the start of a page when their details have already been listed, and names are noted to assist with the reader's following of lines of descent.

John Walker, b. 1755, wharfinger, of Leith, married Catherine Lyon, b. 1757. Of the two surviving children of John Walker and Catherine Lyon, the second was John William Walker, b. 1799, d. 1875. John William Walker "...was a merchant in Leith, the port of Edinburgh, trading mainly, if not exclusively, in the wine trade with France" (Walker, 1996: 132).

John William Walker married first in 1824, Elizabeth Manning, d. 1825, and had one son, John William Manning Walker, born at Castlesteads, in Dalkeith in Scotland; d. March, 1848, Australia, due to a fall from his horse. Elizabeth Manning died in childbirth.

John William Walker, b. 1799, d. 1875; married second Elizabeth Waterston, b. 1805, d. 1863, and they had ten children. It is through Elizabeth Waterston that the main connection between the Sandeman and Walker families is traced; Elizabeth's paternal grandmother was Catherine Sandeman, b. 1755, d. 1831.

John William Walker married a third time, to Catherine Bell (sister of Imrie Bell, his son-in-law), b. 1827, and had two sons. There were no further generations from this marriage.

It is the second marriage that is well traced, and my ancestry descends from this union. The ten children of John William Walker and Elizabeth Waterston are as follows:

1.Charles Blair Walker
2. Robert Lyon Walker
3. Catherine Walker
4. George Walker
5. Jane Walker
6. James Thomas "JT" Walker
7. Thomas Walker
8. Anne Miller Walker
9. William Henry Walker
10. Elizabeth Walker

Of these ten children, Jane, James Thomas, and William Henry married and are known to have had children. The ten individuals listed above appear in column F in the genealogical table below, their children appear in column G, their grandchildren in column H, and so on down the generations. Individuals are numbered according to birth order, and their descendants are listed straight after them. Thus, Jane Walker and her descendants are all listed in the table below before James Thomas and his descendants. Reading from left to right across the columns, a unique numerical identifying code is thus obtainable for each individual.

Five new generations of ancestry have now been tracked and put into a table. View Columns A-E have their own page, Earliest Walker Genealogy. Obviously, details are sketchy for these pre-1800 ancestors.

The layout of the genealogy is based on that originally devised by Mr. David Peat, of Perth, b. 1807, d. 1874; the original compiler of the Sandeman genealogy. Genealogical information is taken from "The Sandeman Genealogy", "Glenlyon Connections", and my own personal notes.
