Looking for family of William Dickson and Isabel Thompson of Evandale married in 1864

Have had quite a bit of information from Evandale History Society regarding children. 5 died all boys but looks like a daughter born in 1862, John my husband's grandfather (we think,who came to NZ) and another son born in 1868 survived. The parents William and Isabel were transported from Scotland as convicts and I would like to go further back to find Williams parents but every time come to a dead end.
I think William was tried at the Edinburgh Court of Justiciary around 1835. Any help would be gratefully received.

Re Loveday family of woodville NZ originally from Forncett Norfolk England

For any Loveday's interested in their history I am originally Patricia Loveday born in Christchurch Nz in 1931 my grandfather William came out here on ship "schiaelleon" in 1874 with 6 other children and parents James and Lydia as assisted immigrants and were original settlers in Woodville, apparently there is a street named after them. They went on to have another 8 children in NZ.
Grandad Bill as we called him was an accomplished rifleman together with his brother George and team represented New Zealand at Bisley in England. According to "Papers Past" they went in 1902 and then in 1919 he
won the coveted King's Prize and was presented to Prince Albert and chaired around the camp. My brother William now deceased inherited his ability and it has now passed on to my son Gregory.
William's brother George had 9 children, amongst them was Alan Loveday who was a famous violinist, I have a CD of him performing in Vivaldi "The four seasons" at the Academy of St Martin in the Fields" conducted by Neville Marriner in 1969. I am hoping to go to Woodville to see if I can find any more history God willing.I have a great photo of the Bisley Team in 1902 but am not sure how to post it. Pattie
