David and Elizabeth Smith

Query by Harper1775

David and his wife Elizabeth and their four children - David born between 1845 and 1847, James Stewart born 1848, Margaret Watson born 1851 and Thomas born 1853 arrived in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia between 1853 and 1855. A son William Watson was born in Australia in 1855.

We have checked hundreds of shipping records but have been unable to find when they arrived in Australia.

David was born in Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire, Scotland in 1822 and Elizabeth in Lanarkshire in 1828.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Very much appreciated your information; however, I do not believe it was the family I am searching for as David was a Sawyer not an engineer. I did find David and Elisabeth on the HC Kidston but did not see the children listed. Would you be able to tell me where you found the original so I can double check.

Again, thank you so very much for your response.
