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.

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
