William Beaton 1820 - 1908 immigrated to Australia from Edinburgh along with his wife Mary Thomson and his sister Isabella in 1841.
They settled in Euroa Victoria.
There are many newspaper clips and stories regarding their ill-fated voyage over on the ship the India which burned at sea. They later continued their voyage on the ship the Grindlay.
A few years later his mother Jane (nee Dick) and siblings Peter, Janet and Alison immigrated after William's father passed away. Euphemia came out a few years after them but her daughter came over earlier with her grandmother Jane.
Jane (Dick) remarried in 1869 to James Gaskill in Myrtleford, Victoria.
My 3 x great grandmother Mary Beaton (nee Thomson. was born in Edinburgh in 1821 (according to her shipping and death records). Her father was Robert Thomson and on Mary's marriage record to William Beaton in 1841 it states Robert was a Accoutrement Maker - ( maker of Military Clothing and Accessories) from 17 Dacre Street Westminster. On Mary's death record it states he was a saddler and that her mother was Ellen Fleming, after many years of searching I ended up putting in her first name only with her fathers name and with the process of elimination I found her record, it turned out her mother's name was different to that on Mary's death certificate. birth record has her mother as Jane Allen
That is all the information I have on them and would like to find out more.
I did find out that there was Bryan & Price & Co accoutrement makers of 8-9 Dacre Street Westminster, London.
I found a Robert Thomson married to Anne who was a saddler on a census but I cannot access my data at present to find what location it was in the UK.
John, Robert, Mary and Elizabeth
