Thanks gibbo.

It's probably Bathurst, NSW.

Looks to be Primitive Methodist if I have the right minister.

Can't find where he was born.

If it is Bathurst or nearby Sofala then it's a mystery how Frances got there from Queensland to marry.

Her parents died in Moggill.

Thanks Geoff.

Not a brother then.

I would have said he was born Glasgow but 'Risca' for the name of his residence points me away from there.

No.

I'm assuming the marriage was in the Bathurst area. I've not searched for the minister in Queensland.

The other complicating factor is that I can't see Frances arriving with family.

Born abt 1828 Gloucester.

I'm not sure if it was Primitive Methodist or if this is the minister:

I haven't found the manifest for the 'Lima' yet, but there is this from a tree. Maybe that family was unassisted, so may not list all names..

Excerpt:
"Transcript
The "Lima," the third of Dr. Lang's ships was much smaller than the others, being a barque of only 349 tons. She brought only 84 immigrants, among whom (according to the Sydney "Shipping Gazette") were many who paid their own passage money, and held land orders from Dr. Lang, and who also had brought agricultural labourers with them. Dr. Wilkinson was the surgeon-superintendent, and among the cabin passengers were Revd. Mr. Baker (chaplain), Mrs. Baker and family, Lieut. Collins, Mr. and Mrs. Ellerby and child, Mrs Ellerby, Senr., Mr. and Mrs. Bailey and family, Mr/ and Mrs. Lewis and family, MR. and Mrs. Twine and family...

Yes, we may never know the names of the children on the 'Lima' because it was a private charter by Rev. Dr. Lang.

One more son:
