Query by heaths

Isaac was born 1808 to a John Sutherland and a Catherine Gann or Gunn.
He married a Margaret Buchanan and this part transcript from marriage banns
Louisburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

Sutherland Isaac, Minister in Dunn in the Parish Watten, was married to Margaret Buchanan in Louisburgh. Alex Gunn, day labourer in Dunn ? for the man & Robt Buchanan weaver in Louisburgh for the woman. The page dated 1831 Jan 21st a signature at bottom ?

He and his family Immigrated to Melbourne aboard the Black Eagle in 1854 where he moved to Bannockburn Vic. He and his boys built the Sommerset Hotel which is still standing and is now a private home called Rosamont.

His children are as follows, my line is from Catherine and her first husband Robert Phillips.

James McFarlane Sutherland

I have them all on census etc but I cannot get a clear picture of him at all before his marriage...and get sidetracked by the Berriedale family which has been investigated and he is not connected.Many thanks to the many researchers that look for descendants.

He was a cabinent maker and a carpenter, builder. A minister I think for the Wesleyan Church in Scotland.

If anyone anywhere has come across him I would love to know.

Many thanks

Hi Laurie,

I posted this so long ago and forgot about it..

I am so interested in finding out about Isaac....

I have been in contact with Bill Phillips and that is where the photo came from.

I am travelling to Victoria and staying near Geelong in January 2015 and hope to get a trip in to Bannockburn.
