Trees have dau Elizabeth Kinkhead F b. 1871 India, not validated, so arrival may suggest 1871-1872.

This looks a bit early and has the wrong middle initial..

Mr J C Fergusson
Age: 28
Arrival Date: 4 Apr 1866
Arrival Port: Melbourne, Australia
Departure Port: Calcutta
Ship: Warrior
Nationality: British
