Looking for Margaret ADLAM

I am looking for a Margaret ADLAM born about 1800, St Kitts. Her father was Alexander ADLAM, a St Kitts (St Christopher, W.I) merchant. Margaret married in about 1819 a Sidney STEPHEN, I think in the West Indies.(the STEPHEN family being well known in legal circles in the UK- James STEPHEN writing the anti-slavery laws that William Wilberforce had passed through the British Parliament. This same James STEPHEN being the grandfather of Sir Leslie STEPHEN and the ggrandfather of Virginia WOOLF (Adeline Virginia STEPHEN). In about 1828, Margaret, Sidney and other members of the extended STEPHEN family left the West Indies for Australia, settling in Victoria, Tasmania and NSW.Sidney took a posting in New Zealand,as a Judge and Lt Governor. Sidney died in Auckland, NZ in about 1861 and Margaret returned to Australia to be with her children and family. Margaret died in May of 1875, in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

I have no information regarding Margaret's mother or any further information on Alexander ADLAM.

If anyone can help me with further information on Margaret ADLAM or her father Alexander ADLAM, I would be very appreciative. Thanking in advance. ronmac46
