Have discovered that James, his wife Rose and three children arrived in Sydney in 1875 on the Samuel Plimsoll. They came as assisted immigrants.
James died alone with his family having moved on to New Zealand with his brother.

So any info on James or general information on assisted immigration and what it entailed would be gratefully received.

To whom married: Ann Craven?
Comments:Trying to find out about John Knox, his sister (I think) Jane Knox, John's wife Ann (nee Craven?) and John and Ann's daughter Elizabeth, all originally from Halifax and Bradford, Yorkshire, England.

According to the 'Strathfieldsaye's ships manifest of 1841 all four arrived Melbourne in August of 1841 , John and Ann were both born in 1819 and Jane 1816, Elizabeth in 1840. From many letters we have from the subsequent 17 years, the family spent time in and around Melbourne, the birth/baptism of three children being registered as follows in Bourke County: Mary Jane Knox (birth) 30 June 1844, Alice Craven Knox (birth) 28 May 1846' John Knox (birth) 3 August 1848. Other younger children David and Sarah Anna.

The letters then begin to arrive from 'Kings River' where it seems the family established a small sheep/milling enterprise. Any information gratefully received.

Comments:Searching for any information about and the descendants of two brothers, William McKerlie & Miles McKerlie who arrived in Vic. in March 1853 aboard the SCARGO out of British Columbia or the United States. The ship's register gives their surname as McKeslie. The brothers were born in Upper Canada in 1829 and 1831 respectively. It is believed they went to Australia for the gold rush. By 1876 both brothers were believed dead, according to their father's will.

William McKerlie married Sarah Bales in 1860. They had 6 known children:
Eliza Jane b. 1861, MORR; d. age 6, 1867
Emily b. 1863, MORR; d. age 4, 1867
Amelia b. 1864, MORR; d. age 3, 1867
William John b. 1868, SEBASTOPOL
Lavinia b. 1870, BEAL
James b. 1872, BEAL

It is possible that James McKerlie served as a Private with either the 5th Vic. Mounted Rifles or the 6th Aust. Commonwealth Horse (Vic) during the Boer War.

Ancestor Name: Andrew Lund PETERS
Born: 1850 aprox
Died: 1936
To whom married: Mary ???
Comments:I am researching my father's line of Peters. It is believed that Andrew Lund PETERS was born around Ballarat area about 1850. His son Mark Andrew, was ??? born there around 1870. We believe that the father of Edmund Lund Peters, was a Danish sailor, whose name was PETERSEN, and was a deserter according to family lore. Edmund Lund, and son Mark Andrew Peters, both emigrated to New Zealand, where they operated a Mail Coach, in the late 1800's
Any information about these names would be greatly appreciated,

Born: abt 1837
Died: 27-Aug-19??
To whom married: David DEWAR
Comments:Annie NEISCH Dewar died in Pitfield and is buried in Kincardine Churchyard, Fairfield.

Our DEWAR surname went to Australia sometime after 1887. This line descended from David DEWAR / Annie NEISCH Campbell Dewar (Campbell was 1st husband & Dewar was 2nd). She went to Australia after 2nd hsyb. died in 1887 in Scotland. She took with her a daughter Jean Primrose DEWAR & 2 son's -David DEWAR & John CAMPBELL and her bachelor brother, Duncan NEISCH. We have a written account of her trip to Australia on the ship Loch Vencare, it took 365 days, very rough trip and had only salt pork left to eat upon arrival.

Family story is:
She started the first temperance movement in this area in Australia and held the first meeting via a temperance hotel/boarding house. That was their reason for going to Australia. It was near the gold mines in the bush country. Her first husband, named Campbell, had been a heavy drinker and died drunk. This information came first hand from her daugher, Jean.

Her son David's son, also a David, visited our branch of the family in 1960. He stated that he had owned the largest leather goods store (briefcases, luggage's) in Melbourne, Australia and his son's took over the business. One of his sonŐs opened a branch store in Sydney.

The father, David DEWAR lived in Kincardine, 177 Arthur St., Fairfield.
The son's names were: Roderick DEWAR - lived in Rosanne, Victoria
Robert Duncan DEWAR -lived at 179 Arthur St., Fairfield
David H. DEWAR - lived at 40 Belmont Ave., Meblourne
George DEWAR - lived in Lindfield, Sydney, NSW

To whom married: none
Comments:John McGregor was a single man who went out to Victoria, Aus. after his sister, Peggy Leitch went out there with her family. This must have been about 1935. John had a farm of about 100 sheep around Geelong. The farm didn't prosper, he developed a painful skin disease & then depression, eventually taking his own life in 1957. He was my mother's favourite uncle. Anything you can tell me would be great - cemetery, old aquaintances. Thankyou!
