Thanks Geoff.

I have found something which will help. I will have to edit Trove because it's poor OCR.

The late Alexander Croll was born in
Keith, County Bannfshire, Scotland, on
August 9, 1835. His mother died when
he was quite young, and his brothers and
sisters, none of whom ever came to Aus-
tralia, are long since dead. When quite
a youth he was put to learn the trade of
shipwright, ... under ... Mr. Thomas Wright, shipbuilder,
Aberdeen.

There are two obituaries and one is very long. I had only copied the URL to my tree of the long one. I've just read it and posted a bit from it.

I agree, 1851 does not look to fit. He is probably in Aberdeen in 1851 learning the trade under Thomas Wright.

Found a couple, they don't have censuses for Alexander, but this one is on his father's page for 1851..

Parish Number: 263
Civil Parish: Laurencekirk
Town: Laurencekirk
Address: Johnston Street
James Croll 38 [b. Lau-kirk, Kincardine. Mason]
Elisabeth Croll 29 [b. Aberdeen]
Adam A G Croll 4 [b. Lau-kirk]
Isobella M Croll 2 [do]

Maybe a remarriage to another Elisabeth, that one would be too young to be Alexander's mother.
