One of several trees - HERE

I can't find a baptism for Neil McKELLAR/MACKELLER abt 1832. I also can't find when Neil and the others arrived.

The author of the tree says Donald the eldest son was the first to arrive:

MCKELLAR Donald arrived in SA 1838-11-16 aboard Rajasthan from London 07-26 [Source:2]

Neil senior died 1862 in Vic. and Neil junior in 1892 in Summer Hill, NSW.

Most of the family lived and died in Victoria. Marriages 1850 & 1851 so they arrived before 1851 census.

I don't know how much I can trust the tree when Dugald is born 1835 and his mother Ann died in 1833. :eek: I can't find a baptism for Dugald 1833-1836.

I also doubt very much Neil was in Canada in 1861 and back in Scotland in 1871 and 1881.

I can't find them in 1841 but that does not mean they arrived before 1841. All I can say is 1833-1850. ??? I don't know if we can prove it's the right Donald in 1838.
