ferret , from Perth Western Australia, has been a Family Tree Circles member since Jan 2011. is researching the following names: LAWRENCE, MULLINS, BROWN and 3 other(s).
Think I may have a lead for you. I've been looking at Hugh and Brown Lawrence. Have found Baptismal Records for them on RootsIreland.ie. Unfortunately, nothing for Alexander, but am sure this is the same family - the names match up with those for emigration to the Cape.
Parent for Hugh and Brown(e) are James Lawrence and Elizabeth Browne. They were Presbytarians from Killyfaddy County Derry, parish name: FIRST MAGHERAFELT. Hugh was born/baptised 22 May 1835, Browne 11 November 1839.
Brown Lawrence was a successful businessman and benefactor at the Cape. See: http://sites.google.com/site/sheldonza/south-african-sheldons/annie-lawrence-nee-sheldon . My great grandmother said he was known to the family as "Lal". My relative, Eleanor Frances Cornwell married Hugh.
Hope this helps.
I have emailed you a reply on RootsChat.
