Regarding Archibald Gillies

I'm looking for my Great, Great, Great Grandfather Archibald Gillies who was born Kilmyle Argyll Scotland about 1816 to Alexander Gillies and Mary Cameron. Unfortunately there is no information about his parents.

I do not know when he left Scotland for Sydney Australia or how long he stayed, but i have some documentation to say that he arrived around 1838/1839 it says that he went on a trip accompanied by a man called Coutts who arrived in Australia on the 1st October 1838/1839 they took cattle overland to Adelaide. I do not know how long Archibald stayed in Australia there is no information available.

Archibald arrived in Wellington , New Zealand on the 5th April 1840 possibly on the Middlesex form Sydney.

He married my Great, Great, Great Grandmother Isabella Turner on the 6th March 1844 in Wellington New Zealand. Isabella was born in Morven Scotland and she sailed from Greenock Glasgow Scotland on the 25 August 1840 and arrived in Wellington New Zealand on the 27th December 1840 on the Blenheim as a passenger herself. She was 28 yeas of age and described as a housemaid.
