I wonder:

MCLEOD / MCCLOUD Marian arrived in SA 1839-08-24 aboard Somersetshire from London [Source:7(W PAINTER),26]

Source 7 - Biographical Index of South Australians 1836-1885, SAGHS, 1986

Hello Robert,

Do we have an age at death for Marion?

If Marion was born abt 1830 then she probably didn't arrive alone in 1839. That's why I said 'I wonder' when I posted it.

There should also be an arrival for a Mary and a Donald - possible siblings.

MCLOUD Mary arrived in SA 1839-12-17 aboard Duchess of Northumberland from London 08-05

MCLEOD Donald arrived in SA by 1848 [Source:EncycNZ(Norman)]
 
They may have arrived via NZ and if so there is less chance of finding them in shipping records.

We have nothing definite yet for an event before the marriage.
 
I'm not claiming yet that this is the family but it caught my eye for various reasons:
