1871 census 2 April and marriage 16 June 1871 so Andrew and Janet were both single.

I can only find one tree and it has Andrew born 1850, as per age 32 in 1882 shipping record, and death 1922 in Canterbury, NZ.

There is this death in NSW:

Death 15418/1922 SCOBIE ANDREW - ANDREW - JEAN - CANTERBURY

SCOBIE Andrew Death notice 28NOV1922 Death 78 late of Canterbury SMH 30NOV1922

Someone has assumed Canterbury is the province in NZ rather than a suburb of Sydney.

Age at death gives 1844 so age in 1881 and 1882 shipping record is way out.

Looks as though mother = Jean is an error or shipping record is in error with Mary:

Andrew Scobie
marriage: 28 Oct 1839 Peebles, Peebles
spouse: Jean Forsyth

Did Andrew marry three times? Jean, Mary & Sarah.
