The Queenslander (Brisbane, Qld.) - Sat 12 Mar 1870 p.1
MARRIAGES
ANDERSON - GAULT.-On the 4th March, at the residence of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Wm. Pauley, Margaret-street, by the Rev. Charles Ogg, James Anderson, to Mary Campbell Gault, daughter of the late Mr. Niven Gault, Paisley, Scotland.

Two possible arrivals for James so we need to find out more about William, Christina and Euphemia.

ANDERSON James 23 'Ariadne' 8 Oct 1862 IMM/112 130 Z1957 M1696 ?
William 26
Christina 25
Euphemia 22

ANDERSON James 'Queen of the Colonies' 14 Oct 1866 IMM/113 45 Z1957 M1696 ?

Thanks,

Dave

I can't find Euphemia in 1851 with siblings to match. Ditto Christina.

I can't find a Christina/Christian born 1837 +/- 2 in 1841 in Scotland.

Ok, I'll look for deaths in Qld.

Can't see a marriage in Qld. for Euphemia or Christina.

Getting all deaths for those two there is no match for mother's name.

Looking at baptisms on SP for Euphemia and Christian/Christina there is no match for parents.

Thanks Val.

Re: James died 15 June 1903 Brisbane buried same - that looks to be an error.

Thanks Geoff.

Alexander Robert is a son who is married to Emmeline.

The 1862 one was a farm labourer so any occ for the 1866 one?

Where does the 'farm labourer' come from for the 1862 arrival? Image on a pay site or image that used to be available on Qld. archives?

Ok. Qld. Archives have changed again and now you can search.

James in 1866 - no age and no occ. on the image.

I can't find William in 1861 on FreeCEN.

Damn FS won't accept 'Perth' only Perthshire. No occ anyway so FS is no use.

So can't prove William stayed in Scotland or also came to Qld.

Can't prove that the 1866 James is the right one.
