(B:1803 Glasgow, Scotland) After (4)years, in 1838, Peter and Margaret, with their (3) year old son William, left Scotland as a family, bound for a new life in Australia. The ship "PORTLAND" sailed from Leigh, Edinburgh, Scotland in 1838 to Sydney, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA. They were assisted passengers immigrating.
William when he was a young man, travelled to Victoria and worked as a labourer and met a Scottish lady who had also immigrated to Australia named Mary HANNA.
I am unable to find out what date they married. They had (11) children. All in Port Melbourne, Victoria.
The eldest being William John B:1863.
After William Sr. death. (I am unable to find this out) Last child born 1886.
Mary with several of her family moved to live in Perth, Western Australia. Maybe around 1900?
Mary Robertson died in Perth on Jan 11th. 1906.
I would appreciate if anyone knows How/when William Sr. died. When did he marry.
