Alexander BEATTIE was born on 21 October 1833 in Errol, Perthshire, Scotland. He and his mother, Elizabeth (nee McNAB) came to Victoria in 1851. Meanwhile Jane ANDERSON, parents Andrew and Jean (nee WALLACE), brothers, William and Andrew, sister Janet, with her husband George PATULLO and their children, also came over to Victoria in 1851.

Alexander and Jane married at Campbellfield on 14 August 1854. They had 12 children:

12. Thomas (1877 - 1877) lived only 1 day.

Alexander and Jane lived at Medlands, Kalkallo and ran a dairy farm. They moved to the Devenish area in 1880.

Jane died 21 March 1888 and Alexander 29 December 1909.

I am writing a history about Jane and Alexander, their children, and grandchildren.

I would welcome any anecdotes about the family and any corrections to the information above. In return, I would share my work. I do not know the area at all, having been brought up in Sydney and married a Queenslander.
