Thanks Emeltee.

1917
... He was 82 years of age on August 9th last ...
... After a few years spent at sea he visited New Zealand, and subsequently came to New South Wales in 1860 ??. ...

He named his residence 'Huntley' and there is a Huntly SE of Keith. ??

Thanks Geoff.

There could be several like that with different vessels.

Getting way off a main line. This connects to Perdriau.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 20 Dec 1919 p.12
MARRIAGES
BUCKLE - PERDRIAU.-November 12, 1919, at Scots Church, Church Hill, by the Rev. S. B. Reid, Alexander Croll, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Buckle, of Cremorne, to Florence Elsie, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Perdrian, of Mosman. Present address Murdoch-street, Cremorne.
