Notes

Master Mariner, Miner, Merchant and Farmer, left his command in London when gold was discovered in Ballarat, Australia, and shipped A B at one shilling per month on a ship bound for Melbourne, Australia, left her there, and with two others, trekked for the diggings. After three weeks, found a large nugget, quarreled and separated. He bought a team of horses and two revolvers and started packing stores to the mine, and gold back to Goolong to the bank. Soon the "Bushmen" (racketeers we call them) got too troublesome, sold horses and started a store buying and shipping sheepskins principally. Met Catherine MacDonald of Kilmuir, Skye, Scotland (recently arrived with her brother and many others) married her and after a few years moved to P.E.I. (old home) and found he was married to a relative.
