I'd like a look up please for James in 1861.

James Miller
Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950

Robert junior married in Scotland and the family together with Janet ended up in Queensland.

I'm still searching for the marriage and the vessel.

Janet/Jessie married in Qld:

V1847812 32C/1847 TUCKER HENRY - MILLER JANNET CU= CofE Brisbane, St John's (QLD)


James arrived much later. He married in Qld:

1864/B0841 Miller James - Cameron Mary

Thanks dave.

It's possible James arrived between 1851 and 1861. I'll have to check origin. Can't check because it's not a Bounty vessel.

MILLER James 27 Washington Irving 1857 Sydney and/or Newcastle and brother Reel 2138, [4/4794]; Reel 2476, [4/4972]
MILLER John 22 Washington Irving 1857 Sydney and/or Newcastle and brother Reel 2138, [4/4794]; Reel 2476, [4/4972]


No sign of a baptism for Robert junior. I'll look for his marriage now. No obvious one.

No sign of a death in Qld. for Robert junior. I wonder if there is a Robert junior.


Assisted immigration index to Qld. starts in 1848. No Janet/Jessie MILLER 1839-1847 arriving assisted to NSW.

Regards,

Dave

Robert junior was supposedly in partnership with John at Dawson River.

The Moreton Bay Courier (Brisbane, Qld. : 1846 - 1861)
Saturday 20 August 1853
At Brisbane, by special license, on the 15th August, by the Rev. Charles Stewart, Mr. John Turnbull, Kinnoul, Dawson River, to Jessie, relict of the late Mr. Henry Tucker, Sydney.


I'd better throw Robert and Jessie's arrival over to the Migration board and continue the rest here. And brother James.
