I've done further research on the family of Neil Snodgrass,died Macleay, NSW 1929, born Scotland 1851 to William James Snodgrass and Isabella Newman Bousfield, daughter of the late Henry Bousfield,Asst Surgeon Bengal & Isabella Barr Newman dau to John Newman & Dorothea, Finmere House, Bucks. William & Isabella married in Scotland in 1845 emmigrated to New Zealand c1852. Isabella Newman Snodgrass born India 1830 died in Scotland in 1891. William James Snodgrass was born in India 1826 to Major John Snodgrass and Eliza Punnette Clunes who married in Bombay in 1818. Don't have a death for him. Major John Snodgrass died in 1828 Poona, India. Eliza remarried Robert Smyth Esq of Dumerie House County of Westmeath & formerly MP. John Snodgrass's parents were Neill Snodgrass and Marjory McNeill of Cunninghamehead, Scotland. Marjory was born 5/2/1749 to James McNeill Distiller of Spirits in Edinburgh, son of Robert McNeil of Kilmory and Christian Murray, dau of James Murray, Commissary Clerk of Dunblane, and married Neill Snodgrass 31/10/1772 Dreghorn. Neill's parents were John Snodgrass, Writer (solicitor) and Ann Nisbet, dau of William Nisbet of Dirleton 6/11/1737. John Snodgrass was born 20/8/1706 Abbey, Paisley to Neil Snodgrass, wryter in Paisley and Jean Buchanan. Neil Snodgrass married Jean Buchanan dau to Robert Buchanan 21/7/1704 Abbey, Paisley. I have a birth in Glasgow for Jean Buchanan in 1682 father Robert and mother Martha Aiken but can't be certain it is the correct one other than John and Jean had a daughter, Martha and Robert Buchanan came from Glasgow. There's a birth for Neill Snodgrass Abbey Paisley in 1686 son of Neill Snodgrass, writer. This would fit with the Scottish naming pattern but no mother is shown.

Thank you for taking the time to post this information. I Think one of the descendants may have migrated to South Australia in 1841

William james jr died in late 1919. Either the 29tth of nov or 1st of dec, in coffs harbour base hospital.
I just realised i punched in the wrong w j snoddy but hey every bit of info helps in family research.

I was given info that william senior was put in an asylum in the uk n issie came home to aust with the 5 youngest kids. Should have been 6 but eliza died in scotland, i think she was isabella jr's twin.
